    Being a fellow writer I don't like to speak badly of anyone's hard work And I do appreciate the work Mercado put into thisBut I couldn't enjoy this book in the least I believe in the supernatural and enjoy a good ghost story as much as anyone Grave's End however is just so poorly written I found myself skipping whole pages out of frustrationI don't know how many times the words suffocating dreams were used but by the end I felt that if I never heard that combination of words again it'd be too soonWhat really bothered me was the character's speech No one speaks in full uninterrupted clean paragraphs Especially nine year olds I wish Mercado had tried to make the dialogue a little believableI guess this reads like a story told around a campfire And that's fine But as a novel this just didn't do it for me I'm sorry

    I was looking for a uick read between other serious books so I didn't have high expectations for this book Unfortunately that's exactly what I gotThis is a pedestrian book about a haunting of an otherwise average house written by the otherwise average homeowner As well meaning as the writer may be in her desire to share her experiences I strongly suggest she keep her day jobThe writing is very repetitive and uninspired and the extraordinary experiences seem boring due to the lack of skill of the writer This book could just as well have been subtitled How I managed to ignore a haunting longer than what should have been possible The writer dismissed the events which were happening to both her and her daughters for years To me this is baffling and frustrating rather than enjoyable to read aboutThe book was finally written due to years of effort by the writer's brother who importuned her to set this down on paper and share itI wish he hadn't bothered

    I was very disappointed with this bookThe writing seems to be done by a junior high school immature girlShe screams and pouts and lets her daughter's suffer years of torment because she is 'scared'Her treatment of her children was criminal and I don't blame her husband for not believing anything she saysThis woman disgusted me and I had to force myself to finish itIt was obvious that she is also a very stupid women and very uneducatedI also didn't believe all of the 'supernatural' occurrencesThey read like a whose who of all the poor ghost stories out thereVery poor workVery poor ending

    I read this book back in 2003 and I can still remember very well the title of the book its cover and its writings within This story has stayed with me for years I remember sitting in a cozy chair back then curled up late at night with this book biting my nails and unable to set it down This book is a whirlwind you just have to know what happens with the haunting Will they stay in the house? Will someone be hurt badly? I recommend this book it will stay with you for a long time to come Thats a good thing

    This book is written from the point of view of the author Elaine Mercado Grave's End tells her real life experience of a haunting that ruled her and her family's life for many years It was interesting to read about the disturbances this family experience in their home I have always found it interesting to read first hand experiences of the paranormal Mercado stresses over and over throughout the book how terrified she was during the times of freuent paranormal activity happening in the home followed by periods of normalcy It's obvious that it was affecting not only her but her children as well I was astounded by how long it actually took for this family to seek out help or even research their home—we are talking years and years of living in fearI don't know if I much cared for the solution of bringing a “medium” into the home I'm a bit on the fence when people start calling themselves a medium I can buy the fact that some people are sensitive to the “Other Side” but people who call themselves mediums and claim to speak directly and have conversations with ghosts not so much I do believe this book could have been better written had Mercado teamed up with an established author to write this book Nonetheless I did find it to be interesting I would recommend this book to readers who like to read about first hand paranormal activity such as myself If you find yourself in the category you might like to check out some books written by Jeff Belanger

    I am a big fan of all things paranormal I have read many books on this subject and this started off to be an alright read However it soon became uite repetitive suffocating dreams and I have no idea how anyone could live with all that activity and fear for so long without doing anything about it After all the years of activity it seemed a bit of an anti climax when the house was 'cleansed' within only a few hours It would have been good if the history of the house had been looked into in a bit depth and if the shed had been re visited after what they found in there I believe that some of the occurrences happened but for me as soon as something dropped a gerbil cage on my daughter or suashed me in my sleep I would have been out of there

    This was a great true paranormal story I started yesterday afternoon and then read it last night till the early hours of the morning as I could not put it down The book is about the life of the author Elaine Mercado as her and her family endured paranormal activity in a house that they bought in the early 80's It is an intense read and the author gave in depth details of the activity they had to deal with for a very long time Giving it five stars for keeping me glued to the book

    I knew Ms Mercado's daughters Even they think there was no real haunting Still it's an interesting story and a good illustration of how people can talk themselves into believing something no matter how outlandish

    When Elaine Mercado and her first husband bought their home in Brooklyn N Y in 1982 they had no idea that they and their two young daughters were embarking on a thirteen year nightmareWithin a few days of moving in Elaine and her older daughter began to experience the sensation of being watched Then came scratching noises and weird smells followed by voices whispering maniacal laughter shadowy figures scurrying along baseboards and small balls of light bouncing along the ceilings From the beginning of the haunting suffocating dreams were experienced by everyone except the younger daughter These eventually accelerated to physical aggression directed at Elaine and both the girlsThis book is the true story of how one family tried to cope with living in a haunted house It also describes how with the help of parapsychologist Dr Hans Holzer and medium Marisa Anderson the family discovered the tragic and heartbreaking secrets buried in the house at Grave's EndI started to read this book again and then realized I had read it already in 2011 lolI really like Elaine's writing style very easy to get into the book and understand from the get go what is going onThe book seemed a little long and drug out in places but that may have been crucial to the story

    i can't fully describe my feelings about this book it is written in first person narrative by the woman who lived it Have you ever ran into a person that just rubs you the wrong way? Where you just have an almost uncontrollable urge to poke them in the eye with a stick for reasons that you just can't explain This is how I felt about the narrator Simpering is probably the closest adjective to use for her if I could only use one to describe her She almost seemed to enjoy her role as victim too much Some women are like that some men too I suppose It's horrible that she suffered so much for so long however if she'd emersed out of denial sooner and gotten the house cleaned right away it wouldn't have been half as bad Seems the majority of her fear was self induced and not that the haunting was horribly violent in its own right
