Something Wicked (READ)
This is an informative book about the negative entities that we may encounter Miss Debi created this just to give information for those who are interested in paranormal and also as a guide for those who will be doing a ghost huntingThe truth of the matter is just because ou don t believe in something doesn t mean it doesn t exist Debi Chestnut Something Wicked A Ghost Hunter Explores Negative SpiritsWhen I started reading this I am really interested in finding out what should I know and expect on these creatures that may be just a negative entity or worse a demonic one But as I flipped pages I noticed that some of the explanations that I ve just read from

THE OTHER PARTS MEANING I FOUND IT REPETITIVE ANDother parts Meaning I found it repetitive and makes me lose interestAside from the information that she shared about those entities I also enjoyed this one when she shares an experience she had with those kinds of entitiesThe book cover is perfect for the title and the purpose of the book The book is about exploring negative spirits The cover is a person going down the stairs as if that person is looking for something and for me it is an excellent presentation of what the book is all aboutI suggest this book for those who wanted to learn paranormal And if Neptunes Daughter (The Atalantium Trilogy, you re a ghost hunter especially ifou are a newbie this will be very handy and helpful for Die Mystikerin you to know the precautions to take whenou come face to face with those negative entities Disclaimer I received a reader copy from Llewellyn Worldwide Ltd via NetGalleyBLOG LINK Face to Face Confrontations with Pure Evil Forget what ou know or think ou know about the malicious entities that lurk in our world just waiting for an opportunity to strike Unless ou re one of the few who have encountered a demon it s almost impossible to grasp the depth and scope of their destructivenessJoin Debi Chestnut as she shares the true stories of her own life threatening encounters with the darkest entities known to man Something Wicked is not just a book it s a warning In the world of malevolent beings knowledge and faith are our only sources of strength Discover what demonic creatures do how they behave how they infest and possess and how to get help before it s too latewhat did I think of it4 starsWhile I did like it I just didn t love it but I think that i Debi Chestnut did a good job describing the vast and fascinating world of paranormal entitiesA very precise and informative account of types of entities how they operate the most common signs of a demonic infestation and all Pisco significa pajaro. you might need to protectourselfA curious Einführung in die deutsche Sprache der Wissenschaften yet interesting book whether or notou believe in such thingsThis book was kindly sent to me via NetGalley by Llewellyn Worldwide Ltd 25I am a sucker for true life ghost storieshauntingsdemons coming at The Defense (Eddie Flynn you tales I do not know why I find these sorts of books so intriguing since they are generally too outlandish to be taken seriously and are typically poorly written as well Yet tempt me with demon probably lives inour basement and for some reason I am sold Maybe I am like Fox Mulder and just want to believe or believe for the few hours I am reading and get a good scare in After all Stephen King is too busy writing about spree killers these days to provide the needed dose of evil clowns Whatever is the motivation here recently two books crossed my path dealing with real life ooga boogas Debi Chestnut s Something Wicked is oneAccording to the blurb Something Wicked explores the topic of negative energies dark forces and exorcisms with fresh eyes so that Hai nhà you may come toour own conclusions So Harry Potter a Me Ka Pōhaku Akeakamai: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in Hawaiian yeah light reading for a summer afternoon I suppose but right up my true hauntings alley Interestingly Chestnut is not going for a demoniacal tell all here The reader gets little in the way of her experiences with negative entitiesdemons beyond a mention that she has had some but instead Something Wicked is meant as a manual for parapsychologists or ghost hunters on the demonic Something Wicked is meant to prepare the uninitiated for experiences with negative entities According to Chestnut my main goal in writing this book was to give information and perhaps a warning on what demonic creatures do how they behave how they infest and possess and what to look for before the situation gets out of control Accordingly she begins by describing the types of negative entities that exist like demons poltergeists elementals and so on and gives a brief example of what these types of entities are and what they typically do I found this discussion underinformative and unsupported and if I were one to go exploring haunted houses I would still be unable to tell an avenging poltergeist from a demon from an elemental much less know what to do about any of them She goes on to describe why negative entities enter one s life they apparently like messy houses Ouija boards Satanism and drugalcohol abuse and the like and how they bother one when they get there knocking on walls moving stuff smelling bad being terrifyingou know the us.

Threatening encounters with the darkest entities known to man She gives also explanations of the different types of spirits involved in her encounters This book is supposed to be a work of non fiction but I also suppose that all depends upon ones belief in the paranormal too For those that do not believe that any type of spirits exist then they of course would be skeptical about what ou find within the book For me I thought this would be an exciting read whether I truly believe that it could or did happen to Debi or not so I thought I d give
This One A Shot Unfortunatelyone a shot Unfortunately book really never grabbed me at all It really just seemed to read very technically as explanations of what the different encounters involved that I found it very dull It also seemed to get very repetitive to me after awhile Perhaps I just should have stuck with fictional ghost stories as they seem to be entertaining I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewFor reviews please visit I normally love books like this because I am a sucker for ghostdemon stuff especially if it is based on true stories or whatever but I could not get through this This book is filled with hypocrisy and repeats of the same information its irritating I found this book to be slightly boring as well it was hard to keep my attentionI received this from NETGALLEY in turn of an honest review The book starts off by telling us that most of what we see in movies is wrong then proceeds to tell me that basically everything I have seen in movies is correct The Entity The Exorcism of Emily Rose The Conjuring all of those are apparently accurate to an extent Even Ouija even Don t mess with a Ouija board and nothing bad will happen to ou If ou don t believe in demons A Menagerie of Heroes you re even susceptible to getting possessed than others The best part of the book was when the author compiled a bunch of stories throughout theears of exorcisms gone bad People who physically assaulted someone while saying they were beating the demons out of them It didn t really serve to make me believe but it was engrossing enough that I read each and every example she represented There is some useful information about talismans that are beneficial when Mr. Fix-It you feelou re being haunted but even most of this information is pretty accurate in movies Sage sticks Crystals Burning incense and holy water and crosses It also kind of read like a school paper Which isn t necessarily a bad thing it just felt like I was having a sit down conversation with the author and she was filling me in on all the things that are official when ghost hunting This is a non fiction book written by a professional ghost hunter who reports encountering negative entities even demonsI m always fascinated by this sort of book that presents spiritual entity experiences as true things that happened because it makes me examine my own beliefs Do I believe in ghosts In demons Do I believe things actually happened as the author relates These are scenarios I would happily read in a fiction story but the claim that it s all true adds a different perspective to the reading experienceRight at the beginning the author says that her ghost hunting team is made up of people from different religious beliefs including Christian Buddhist and Pagan but that each of them is ualified within their belief system for dealing with these negative entities On one hand that sounds a bit like the one size fits all totally inclusive attitude that a lot of new age books fall into so that they will appeal to the widest possible audience but on another level it is a recognition that practices like exorcism don t belong to just one religion The author herself takes a Christian perspective on how she operates because it works for herIn the second chapter she explains different types of spirits and especially negative spirits from her own perspective It correlates reasonably closely to similar definitions I read in my high school days The problem I have with it though is that it begins sounding like a thinly veiled born again Christian attempt to convince people that demons exist then flips over and starts talking about new age methods like visualizing white light and at the same time refers to using tools of magic as something that will invite demons in References to God s law for how demons can behave followed by instructions for how to use crystals for protection and clean the house with smudging just sounds like the author is confusedThe writing itself is good but the mixed messages fail to convince There is also very little about the other negative entities or malevolent ghosts that are referred to now and then No instructions for how to deal with the ghosts or what these other entities could possibly be or what to do about them apart from calling in a ghost hunter who says it doesn t matter what method The Complete Photo Guide to Slipcovers you use to ridourself of demons as long as Nazo no Kanojo X, Vol. 1 you believe in it Approach as fiction and be warned the section about false exorcisms is not for the sueamish. St a book it's a warning In the world of malevolent beings knowledge and faith areour only sources of strength Discover what demonic creatures do how they behave how they infest and possess and how to get help before it's too late. Ual It is during this latter part where the book temporarily derails into an enumeration of exorcisms gone wrong While this is interesting in its own way particularly her call out of the first case to use possessed by demon as a legal defense I have no idea how this has any bearing whatsoever on identifying negative entities or dealing with them This section sits oddly with my understanding of the purpose of the text As does the following section where she paraphrases and then dissects the Catholic Rite of Exorcism I have to say that this was just bizarre and sort of academically offensive Chestnut is not a theologian or even a Catholic and literally her critiue comes down to no than whether she commonsensically agrees with any particular directive Here is an example Clearly this directive was important and valid in the 1600s and probably up through most of the 1800s however there really isn t a need for it now and it should have been removed from the revised directive as it deals with witchcraft and the fact that a church appointed exorcist should not resort to witchcraft or any other activity while performing an exorcism that is not sanctioned by the Church Okay thenOn the positive side the book does seem well intentioned and she does provide some tips on how to avoid having demons come home with Tarikh Se Kuch Nahin Sikha you after a ghost hunt and how to try to keepour home demon free However if one really believes in this sort of thing and is worried about encountering something evil I think going to one of her source texts like Martin s Hostage to the Devil may be useful Thanks to Debi Chestnut Llewellyn Worldwide and NetGalley for the ARC You can also read this exact same thing on my blog Read or Die Okay so sadly I will end up paying a late due for this book Seeing as it was due on 821 but I turned it in today which is 824 But whatever Seeing as I didn t have any real time to read it expect in the mornings and plus I skipped a little part and read some of it so I didn t have to re read that part and could skip right to the last part of it Anyways though The book it s self was rather informational It tells چهار تیاتر you how to protectour self from Demons and other negative entries rather August Farewell you believe in them or not Would I buy this book to reference back to it No I don t consider this something I d go out an spend 1599 for Even with a coupon I wouldn t do it But I did find it helpful While I m sure Mrs Chestnut didn t mean for this to happen seeing as the focus of this book is learning how to protectourself and when to do an exctoiset I can honestly see now why so many people attend church While I do believe in a Higher Power and have started preying often after reading this book then before I personally have only attended church once or twice in my 24 ears of life Does that make me a bad person I don t think so but that s my opinion seeing as I do believe and prey #The reason I put this in here though is so that I can tell ou all what I #reason I put this in here though is so that I can tell Civil Disobedience you all what I away and not to preach to the chore Seeing as I KNOW all don t want to hear anyone preaching to the chore in a book review And that
is not what I set out to do seeing as I knownot what I set out to do seeing as I know well that we all have different beliefs But I still felt it was somewhat necessary to put it in here as well Seeing as later on in the book it gives Craving Our Virgin (Our Virgin you some preys thatou can use to protect Through the Glass Window Shines the Sun yourself But also I have read many many many New Age books such as this one before that explains and teachesou about Ghosts and Ghost Hunting Seeing as I kind of want to Ghost Hunt someday with a group But in all the books I ve read about Ghosts and a couple stories about Demons here and there over the ears none of them have actually slightly scared me as this one did But that again was not something she set out to do But I only read it one night and while I didn t have nightmares or end up not being able to fall asleep it was uit disturbing reading about Demons and other negative entities at about 10 pm at night So if ou want to read this or get info on how to protect Kao Kao Donna Kao yourself by all means check it out seeing as it was helpful But I wouldn t recommend reading this at night when it s dark out andour the only one up For me I would Highly recommend How Many Socks Make a Pair? you read it in the mornings or early afternoons Ifou get scared easily that is But if Brakskiten - En midsommarnattsdröm you want to read it at night well that sour business Consider Beyond Gridlock? yourself warned I mean if I believe everything in this book then it s amazing that I m not constantly possessed despiteears spent as a depressed alcoholic with ADHD and I should obviously be in a museum I
