I really liked this book. Entertaining and informative. I've noticed some bad reviews on here mentioning the spirituality in the book as a detractor and "woo-woo" BUT ... Hello people, we're talking a demonic haunting here! Spirituality is a crucial piece to this book, and integral to the resolution to the case. However, there are people that simply want the ghost story facts without any conclusions or theorizing. If you're looking for just a scary story, this is not the book for you.

One of the things I personally wanted in this story was to see how they resolved the case and pieces of advice for dealing with a negative haunting. I'm personally very interested in spirituality, so this book was right up my ally. The only thing I was disappointed in was the lack of information about the actual entity types involved. The authors touched on ancient deities, ghosts/human spirits, and demonic entities but did not go into detail about them. If really like further information on the nature of various entities out there and dealing with them, but perhaps that's a different book.

This is ultimately a book about personal growth and a spiritual journey. Combined with a crazy-scary haunting and dark entities. Perfect for readers like me, not so much for the more skeptical readers.

Just finished reading the book, loved it! I really liked the two person point of view of how it happened. The spiritual shamanic journey happening quietly in the background throughout yet boldly leading the way, was a great element in the story. Good easy read! Couldn't put it down, wanted to know what happened, and then was bummed I was finished! You'll enjoy this one!

I have had my own demonic experiences and I found this book to be slow and boring. Too much on the shaman side of things and no real chills or fright from the demonic side of things. Glad I bought it used and didn't pay full price. Disappointing.

This book was given to me as a gift, and what a gift it was? I was engrossed from the moment I read the first page. The book was well written and flowed from beginning to end. The story held me spellbound it took me on a journey and opened my eyes to the very real possibilities of these paranormal happenings. Explanations from Mr Rountree and Mr Lunt added to the professionalism of this book.

If I had not been gifted this book and had known before that it existed I would have had no qualms about purchasing it myself. I congratulate Mr Rountree and Mr Lunt on a superb book.

Demon Street USA is a very different beast to most of the run-of-the-mill true haunting books that have flooded the market in recent years. Instead of a typical story of a family tormented in their home, we get a unique look at property in Florida where the owner is actively practicing black magic and forcing his unwitting tenant into helping him conjure up incredible dark forces. Although co-author David Rountree is well-known in the paranormal research community for his scientific advancement into the study of paranormal phenomenon, this is also not a tale of scientific research into the paranormal. Set years before his research, Demon Street USA focuses on the other side of David's life as a Native American walking the shamanic path along with his co-author Robbie Lunt. Together with their group of friends and spiritual warriors, they take on the dark forces oppressing one of their friends while waging a spiritual battle against powerful negative energies. Many people may dismiss this story as fantasy, but as a seasoned paranormal investigator I have also studied Native American shamanism and found it a very real and powerful force that modern science is remiss in studying. Demon Street USA is a fantastic and truly terrifying tale that also helps the reader come to a better understanding of the mystical forces that are present in our world.

I learned of this book about a year ago on Darkness Radio, one of the finest paranormal radio shows out there. The interview was with both co-authors and sufficiently teased me and I put it on my Amazon wish list. I've heard interviews with David Roundtree before and there was no indication that I would dislike this book as much as I did.

First of all, this took place back in the 80's and the dialog and details were written as if this happened last week. I understand there's some literary license that can be taken but there's no way you remember how the sun bounced off the hood of the car 30+ years ago and wax poetic about it. Those kinds of things came across as forced and out of place. Then, when the main female of the story is asked for details of an evil ritual, she gives details and uses language that this person hasn't used anywhere in the story until that point.

Secondly, the writing style was very distracting....drowning in David's woo-woo shamanic perspective that added little to the actual story. If he wanted to tell his and Robbie's spiritual journey, that should be reserved for a separate book. Readers want to know the story....remember? The story of demon street USA.

Thirdly, the pace was agonizingly slow. After chapter one, I had to force myself to continue reading. After chapter 3, the tone had been set, the writing style firmly founded in quicksand, and I found my mind wandering....to better books of this genre.

I still like and admire David Roundtree, but this book is not his shining moment. In fact, far from it.
