The house with the iconic double-windows, white siding, and chimney at 112 Ocean Avenue is the home to the one of the most horrific family massacres in histo THE REAL AMITYVILLE HORROR: The True Story Behind The Brutal DeFeo Murders Settled in an affluent neighborhood in Long Island, New York is the one of the most infamous houses in all of America, or perhaps the world. The house with the iconic double-windows, white siding, and chimney at 112 Ocean Avenue is the home to the one of the most horrific family massacres in history, as well as an infamous haunting hoax. The haunting of the Amityville house is much more prominently known than the murders that took place in the same house. The Amityville or DeFeo family murders committed by Ronald “Butch” DeFeo Jr. have gone down in both true crime and pop culture history. The book and the subsequent horror film series about the case continue to fascinate and fear audiences years later. Both cases are clouded in unreliable testimony, profiteering, admitted fabrication, and greed. This is the real story of what happened at Amityville, and the events leading up to this horrific crime.

    Rehash with nothing new The Real Amityville Horror is a rehash of everything that came before it. The author suffers from conspiracy theories and claiming facts against fiction without any true investigation beyond reading various books on the subject and internet fodder. It would have been interesting if they had actually left their home and interviewed actual people but instead you get redigested hyper babble. A book this short is riddled with typos and grammar mistakes from her cut and paste ap Rehash with nothing new The Real Amityville Horror is a rehash of everything that came before it. The author suffers from conspiracy theories and claiming facts against fiction without any true investigation beyond reading various books on the subject and internet fodder. It would have been interesting if they had actually left their home and interviewed actual people but instead you get redigested hyper babble. A book this short is riddled with typos and grammar mistakes from her cut and paste approach. Some of the conspiracy theories approached are never fully explored nor an open minded approach was used to investigate the issues. You basically have an author with lazy writing skills and close minded approach pushing their own ideologies and agenda forth. It's a shame because with the supposed haunting and original murders, the book could have fully added a dimension to the proceedings instead of a half mast webpage someone decided to self publish. Lazy in every sense of the word. Pitiful. Stay clear.

    Boring! I chose the book because I thought it sounded interesting. Bad choice. The book is confusing in that it's timeline jumps back and forth with no explanation. It seems as though the same topic is recycled paragraph after paragraph. Very disappointing. The author accused people of exploitation of the DeFeo murders. Pot meet kettle. Not one new or interesting item is offered. Boring! I chose the book because I thought it sounded interesting. Bad choice.

    The Real Horror is this book With a name like Frances J. Armstrong it hardly seems possible that the author's first language is not English, but apparently it is not. The book has only 54 pages, but it was difficult to finish, so badly is it written. When I did finish it, the first thought I had was gratitude that I didn't waste any money buying it.

    Should have been ghostwritten This is a story of murders, demonic possession, exorcism, haunting, fraudsters, and possible incest written in the most boring and laborious way possible. No "personalities" emerge - not the people invo!ved, not the murders, not the haunting. It is just as dry as possible, and poorly written from a structural point of view..

    Despite the negative reviews, I went into this hoping to learn more about the DeFeo murders that predate the infamous tales of haunting. But this book is so poorly written, you would think it was written by a middle school student who only knows how to cite Wikipedia. An example of this occurs in the following excerpt: "In Butch's various stories, another consistency along with claiming Dawn's involvement is that he maintains his innocence in killing his three younger siblings.

But this book is so poorly written, you would think it was written by a middle school student who only knows how to cite Wikipedia. An example of this occurs in the following excerpt: "In Butch's various stories, another consistency along with claiming Dawn's involvement is that he maintains his innocence in killing his three younger siblings. He has stated on numerous occasions Dawn was responsible for the death of the younger brothers and sister. This contradicts his previous confession of having killed the entire family." These two back to back paragraphs are all the proof a reader needs to skip this book; how can a statement be a consistency in someones story if it directly contradicts a previous statement by the same person? Furthermore, the first sentence of the second paragraph tells the same exact information as the previous paragraph; as if the writer was desperately trying to just fill space to meet a required book length.

    This book was interesting. The final result is the jury is still out on whether the Luther had any hauntings or not. I think Butch DeFeo was mentally deranged with multiple personality disorder. That would explain the voices he claimed told him to kill. The people I feel for most are the Lutz children for whatever they experienced due what their stepfather George Lutz was doing traumatized them badly. I do think George may have opened the door to some evil spirits who came right in. But what's w This book was interesting.

Other people have lived in this house since the Lutzes with no paranormal activity.

    Interesting content (the truth behind the hoax of "haunting", some details about the murder trial of the guy who killed his family in the house), but the writing is middle-school level terrible. Grammar errors, punctuation problems, incomplete sentences, spelling someone's name differently from page to page... yeesh! Reminded me of reading 8th graders' papers.

    Did anyone proof read this book before publication? There were so many typos and grammatical errors it almost made this book too difficult to read. Thankfully this was only 100 pages as it was hardly engaging. Not recommended.

    Uffda This book bounced around. Very interesting facts but could have used a few edits. All in all, I think the author had some good points but needed a better way to tell the story.

    Is it honestly too much to ask for writers to have editing?! This was a difficult read. Far too much jumping around, punctuation and spelling errors. There was a lot of repeating going on as well. It read like it was written by someone short on sleep and time.

    Horrible! There were so many grammatical and spelling errors that I struggled to read this book. The storyline was all over the place and characters were either introduced numerous times, or not at all. I do not recommend, thank goodness it was a freebie.

    Written by a 4 year old? Absolutely horrific. I couldn't even finish this book. The writing is absolutely horrendous and disjointed. It is impossible to follow. Don't waste your time. If you're interested in the DeFeo murders, just read about it on Wikipedia. Written by a 4 year old? Absolutely horrific. I couldn't even finish this book.

    The first thing that comes to my mind is THANK GOD this book was free. It was really, really bad. The author was constantly saying one thing in one paragraph and then saying the opposite in the next. And sooo many typos. Not even sure it should get a star.

    It was an interesting compilation of different articles and books, but the grammar and overall quality was low. I’d recommend it as a quick read, but it’s nothing amazing.

    What is the truth? Is the story true or is it a hoax? I wanted to know more about the DeFoes and the murder of the family. Gave me some details but not the story
