Naturally some may read these and think it's abit over the top and perhaps some of them are - and for those who don't believe in the paranormal will probably neither care or be affected in anway in their decision to travel and holiday in Bali. However, it does provide an insight into the culture and life of this unique island community.
Having been and lived there, I have heard many stories and come in contact with practitioners of magic however, this dark side is counteracted by the wonderful people who live there and who have a rich culture and have much to offer to tourists and people who choose to make Bali their home. The fact that the author is married to a local and lives there is proof that there is more to Bali than these horror stories.
I found the accounts of exorcism and vampires particularly hard to read and the story of the Reagans and their involvment in some sort of voodoo trance ritual was interesting.The story of the Australian man who was hexed and lived his life searching for his prostitute lover and whose famiy had abandoned him was quite sad but I know these things take place. Again, you can either believe it or not.
In summary I found this book well written in terms of the immediate impact it has on the reader and even if you find that some of the stories are far fetched or you neither believe in any of it - this book is highly entertaining.
I truly recommend it.
But beware, it is not for the faint hearted.
