People who like an easy read and are in for reminiscing "the good old" days, please go ahead. (Personally, I am a fan of the times where angels were not such a big deal.) I do however feel like this book could need an updated version with more of what the Winchesters have encountered in the other 10+ seasons :) This book is for you if…you enjoy Supernatural and would like a fun little book about the universe of Supernatural. Spoilerwise I would recommend you to not read this book until you've finished Season 3, if you want to make sure. ⇝A little bit on racism: It's Native Americans, not Indians. There are passages in this book where Alex uses the word Indians instead of Native Americans or even the correct name of the tribe he's referring to with this case. It's simply not acceptable. I don't care that this book was written 10 years ago. ⇝Do not expect too much adequacy if you have any expertise on the cultures and lores mentioned in this book. I was completely aware of the fact that most times, Supernatural borrows and adapts most lore to fit the action frame of the show. I especially noticed this when they were talking about Celts as if they were some group of humans easily identified by certain makers. They weren't. To this day, scholars underline the fact that what scientifically could be described as Celtic civilizations stretches from Ireland over Scotland to France, Spain, Germany to even Greece and parts of Turkey. This is, of course, just the example I know something about. I mainly wanted to give you a heads up :) ➺The book is structured as follows. SPIRITS The Woman in White Water Spirits Urban Legends and Vengeful Spirits Land Spirits: Native and immigrant Vanir Lawrence Death Apparations MONSTERS Wendigo Shapeshifter Tulpas and Other Created Beings Homunculus Golem Rakshasa GHOULS, REVENANTS, ET CETERA Ghoul Shtriga Draugr/Draug Vampire Zombie How to Kill a Zombie/Revenant Other Revenants WITCHES, FAMILIARS AND BLACK DOGS DEMONS Succubus/Incubus Jinn Tengu Abiku Pishacha Acheri The Yellow-Eyed Demon Lesser Demons We Have Known Reaper Goofer Dust APPENDIX A: HERBS, OILS, AND HOODO HANDS APPENDIX B: NAMES AND ATTRIBUTES OF EUROPEAN DEMONS Ready to hunt some monsters? Hope you don't catch the Ghost Sickness, or else, you'll end up a little something like this on your next hunt: _____________________ Writing quality + easy of reading = 4* enjoyability = 4* insightfulness = 3.5*

    I am an unabashed supernatural fangirl. My husband communicates with me through text with Dean memes and gifs all the time 😂. I have half of season 14 left to go & then, the end, one & for all, Season 15. 😭😭😭 I think I took a break from watching because I don’t want it to end. 💔 I’m excited to read this! All of the supernatural... beings (?) in one place! Woo!

    I had to read this one because Supernatural is one of my favorite TV shows... I liked it for most parts. It brought back the adventures from first two seasons and that was awesome. Also the appendix with the herbs and oils was cool. The only thing that i didn't like are the parts from the "John's journal", they were written in cursive and i had a bit of trouble reading them smoothly.

    An interesting book for Supernatural fans, but I definitely lacked sources for anything. The book is written from Sam and Dean's point of view, but also shifts to 3rd person perspective, which is extremely strange. It also feels a bit out of character, but hey!

I did not read this book for the writing of Sam and Dean. I read it because I wanted to know more about the monsters, spirits, revenants, ghouls and demons. There were plenty of interesting ghost stories and lore from all over the world, and I enjoyed reading them. I wish there would have been less interference by Sam and Dean (so to speak) and more "meat on the bones" in terms of really covering the story. Being very accustomed to the Swedish urban legend about myrlingar - I barely recognized what the author was trying to convey about them! So that was a bummer. Also don't get why the character åäö was neglected in a novel; because no matter what - "bäckahästen" and "backahasten" just ain't the same! The font was a bit annoying (too similar to Comic Sans or the Harry Potter font!), especially during the drafts from John Winchester's journal. I found them pretty hard on the eyes to read. The appendix of herbs etc. and known demons was also a nice thing added to the book. So in general; I enjoyed the book. Don't expect it to be some amazing piece of fiction, it's just a good read if you're curious and enjoy the show, I guess! (Also, this book was published around season 2 or 3. I smiled when "the Winchesters" mentioned that dragons definitely don't exist!)

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. *SOME SPOILERS TO THE TV SERIES READ WITH CAUTION* PERSONAL RESPONSE: I really enjoyed this book mainly because it is based off of the best tv show ever (Supernatural). I really liked how the book has the Monsters, Spirits, Demons, and Ghouls each in their own section. Another thing I liked is that in each section they list some of that thing that they hunted. I also liked that their is a table of Constance so the reader knows what the book is talking about. PLOT SUMMARY: The beginning of the book *SOME SPOILERS TO THE TV SERIES READ WITH CAUTION* PERSONAL RESPONSE: I really enjoyed this book mainly because it is based off of the best tv show ever (Supernatural).

I also liked that their is a table of Constance so the reader knows what the book is talking about. PLOT SUMMARY: The beginning of the book introduces you to John (the father), Sam and Dean Winchester( two brothers and also Johns sons). John, Sam and Dean hunt many things that are only in most people's nightmares and dreams. John made it his life after Sam and Deans mother was killed by a demon. Dean and Sam stared looking for their father and trying to kill the demon after Sam's girlfriend Jessica was killed by the same demon. Finally they meet up with their dad but John sacrifices himself to the same demon to save Dean. After that Dean and Sam look for the demon that killed their family. Along the way they meet new people. Their are many types of spirits like The Woman in White, Water Spirits, Urban Legends and Vengeful Spirits. Land Spirits: Native and Immigrant that includes Native American Curses, Amityville, Rout 55, Wisconsin Lake Curse (oh, and the bugs), and the curse of Kaskaskia. Vanir, Lawrence, and Death Apparitions are more spirits. Spirits will sometimes attach them self's to an object, that can make it hard to get rid of the spirit. The best way to get rid of a spirit is to salt and burn the remains and/or burn the object they are attached to. Their are many monsters that Dean and Sam have hunted the Wendigo is one of them. Their are many different kinds of shape shifters, Yenaldooshi, Bearwalker, Leszy, Nahuakes, Puca, The Animal Wife (Selkies, Swan Maidens, and Kitsune), and the Lycanthropy. Homunculus, Golems, Rakshasa, Tulpas and other created beings are more of the monsters they have hunted. Ghouls, Shriga, Draugr/Draug, Vampire, Zombie, and others. They have hunted Withes, Familiars and black dogs. Sam and Dean have meet many demons. Succubus/ Incubus, Jinn, Tengu, Abiku, Pishacha, Acheri, The Yellow Eyed Demon and more. Reapers Goofer Dust are some more that are hunted. RECOMONDATION: I recommend this book to anyone in middle school or higher. This book is also great for any Supernatural fan who wants to know more about what they hunt in this book. I recommend this book for only Supernatural fans.

    I loved this book because it is about my favorite T.V. show and it gives lots of information that is not said in the show. This book reminded me of Bobby Singer's Guide to Hunting because it gives tips about hunting and lots of other cool things.

    To be honest (and you wouldn't believe how much it pains me to say this), I was a bit disappointed by this book. First of all, the writing style didn't work for me at all. The book is written like a "How-to" from the Winchester boys, and nothing about it convinced me, starting from the ever-annoying "we" to the whole idea that the Winchesters would tell someone in such a fashion about the monsters they encountered.

I picture Sam and Dean sitting in their motel room at the evening writing "we did this" and "we saw a ghost" style essays, and I just laugh (and not in a good way.) Second, the actual "information" in this book was rather boring for me. It really is how-to (kill demons, ghosts, other monsters etc.) and there's tons of information. Some about the monsters we saw on the show, some general information about the history or tradition of a certain kind of supernatural occurence, be it a ghost or a monster or any other kind of lore. This is probably interesting to the people who believe in this sort of thing (which I don't), and must be immensely useful to fanfiction writers (which I am not), but to realists like me who are here just for the pretty, it's rather useless. I was hoping there'd be more actual canon, something we haven't seen on the show, but it was mostly just short references to some of the monsters from the show, and then tons of information. Not bad, but not what I expected (or wanted). This book would have worked a LOT better if it had been written for example from Sam's POV. It could have been Sam's Guide to Monster, Spirits and Demons, because you just know that Sam sits down in the evenings and writes down all his research results and everything else that is useful for hunting, in case they ever encounter anything like it again. (whereas Dean just says "shot it last time, shoot it again this time, and if that doesn't work, shoot it again.". Oh, no, I'm being unfair! Poor Dean, but you look so good witha gun in your hand, I cannot help but use those images for my pleasure!) Right, where was I? Oh, yes, so the book would have been better if it was written from a different POV and in a different style, but I think most fans will still enjoy it.

    I was tempted to go for the half-star option but that seemed a little harsh. This is poorly-written, inconsistent and a dull read - and to make anything to do with 'Supernatural' dull is quite a feat in my opinion. Irvine has just taken a random collection of creatures that have appeared on the (superlative) show, and written a litttle about each - sometimes no more than a paragraph. There's also entire pages of possibly 'real' historical quotations - not exactly riveting - and almost three page I was tempted to go for the half-star option but that seemed a little harsh.

The worst aspect is that Irvine has tried to write in the 'voice' of the Winchester brothers, failed, and this makes it a little embarassing. Also - let's be honest - what's the point of a book about 'Supernatural' with no photos? Especially an authorized one. There's fanfic out there that's far more interesting and better written than this...I mean, not like I know but I'm just, you know, guessing.

    The Supernatural Book of Monsters, Spirits, Demons and Ghouls is quite interesting. It's put together by the same guy who later put together John Winchester's Journal. It's not as fun as that, since it's mostly just information about the monsters (et al) that they encounter in canon. It is kind of fun, it's written from the boys' point of view, but it's hard to imagine them actually sitting down and writing a how-to guide like this, so I wouldn't take it too seriously.

    I read this a while ago and at the moment I am looking for the person who illustrated this book for a drawing project I am working on. I think I can separate books and the shows they are based on because no matter how much I want it to be like Sam and Dean are the ones telling me this information I know that it's not and no matter how much research Alex Irvine does he would have never been able to capture the personalities that these actors convey so well.

    I can't give more than 2 stars because I didn't expect a guide within a journal that switches badly between the Winchesters and a 3dr person. Moreover, it is not that informative. Lots of "trust us" and "we got the job done", with no detailed adventure. The only part that is informative is at the end, when the author decided to add 2 appendix for herbs and demons. I guess I expected more from the book. I can't give more than 2 stars because I didn't expect a guide within a journal that switches badly between the Winchesters and a 3dr person.

    If you're a fan of Supernatural definitely check this one out! It involves most of the supernatural beings that were featured in seasons 1+2 with brief descriptions. I liked the appendix on herbs and oils, but grew tired when reading the appendix on demons. I liked the parts that were supposedly from John's journal. There were also information taken from legends and mythology which was cool and interesting! It features some pictures from the actual show too! The writing was weird.

I think it would have been better, if the whole book was written in a 3rd person POV. Another issue I had, had to do with an exorcism written in Latin, which covered 3+pages and it was completely unecessary. I would have understood it, if the writer had translated it, but he simply copy-pasted the whole thing. All in all, I give it 3 stars! It has some minor issues, but I am a fan of Supernatural, so I definitely recommend it to the fans of the show!

    I give this book a rating of 4. First of all the Pre-face was very intriguing, and I couldn’t wait to read more. This book was written through the Winchester Brothers and is in a chapter-like form. Separated into Categories and Sub-Categories; each having an introduction with overall and basic details; as well as ways of recognising the signs for each and what warding, spell or substance can be used against them. The Author pulls you in by including different Cultural folklores on each too. He o I give this book a rating of 4. First of all the Pre-face was very intriguing, and I couldn’t wait to read more.

Irvine gives a lot of information as well as; adding a detailed list of both spell/ritual oriented Herbs; and different Demons with their appearances and personalities well described. Overall I definitely enjoyed this book, and appreciated the amount of information collected and given. It was hard to lay this one down.

    The only reason this is getting any stars at all is because it is SPN related. I didn't like John's Journal however I thought I would give this a try. I'm sorry I did.

    I think this book is one of the best acquisitions you can have if you are a big fan of the tv series. I enjoyed the format that was used (the cover, the drawings, the pictures...). The only thing that made me disconnect was that everything was narrated as if Sam or Dean were the writers, but then the narrator's voice changed to third person.

    Honestly, this was pretty enjoyable, even though it's not really a book in the traditional sense of the word. It's more like a collection of folklore or like a how to kill monsters guide, or a supernatural reference book. Still, it isn't tedious to read, and it flows enough that it feels like a novel and not, like, a dictionary. I really like the stories interspersed with the folklore.
