This book was very entertaining, but also very unbelievable. I don't know if Veronica thought it would be best to sensationalize the story or if this is how she truelly believes things went down. This was not a story of demonic possesion, but rather a story of a haunted house and spirit possesion. There is a difference.
I'm really so confused as to how I feel about this book. I have had some very strange things happen in my own life that can not be easily explained, so when I read these kind of stories I go into them with a very open mind. Sometimes though things just seem way to out there even for my very open mind. This reads more like a fictional story in my opinion. If the author wanted to tell a fictional story that's all fine and good, but she may have thought it would increase sales if she said it were a true story.
The things that made this story seem more like fiction is the fact that the fire place kept getting covered back up. In hauntings many things can be moved and misplaced or even destroyed, but the amount of work that would have gone into recovering the fireplace was just way beyond rediculous to even believe that a ghost could have done it. Next there was the mystery surrounding her neighbors missing daughter and how that all came to a close. Then also the way her husband changed so drastically and for such an extended period of time. Lastly the way the story ended was very fictionial in my opinion.
I don't regret reading this, like I said it was very entertaining and I did have a hard time putting it down last night to go to sleep. I just wish the author would have been more honest in telling her story. I wonder if the whole thing was made up or if something really did happen and she just added some extra stuff to make the story longer and more frightening. In my opinion keeping with the true story and not giving way to sensationalism makes the story that much more creepy because it's more believable.
