    I couldn't decide whether this is a work of non-fiction or fiction.
    It at first reminded me of the Amityville horror house in 1974 that a movie as well as a book were made.
    This book almost seems as if 2 different authors wrote a part.
    There are only 2 parts headed as chapters.
    The rest are various sections with different captions.
    Chapter 2, the Sherman family, is written as if it were written by a novelist that usually writes romance novels. It is fleshed out and explicit not matter of fact as the other parts.
    It tells the horrifying story of the Sherman family.
    Some sections of the book are repeated.
    There are demons, witches, paranormal happenings , clergy, superstitions, racists, and intolerance.
    As far as I could determine, there was a movie "The Conjuring" made about this house. It is hard to tell because many of the names have been changed.
    If you liked the Amityville horror house , give this a try but read chapter 2 first.
