Mr.Conway is a head of Canway Construction,and visited to Haiti to find a good place for building.On his way of traveling,he knew about voodoo-a magic,people in Haiti believe in. Voodoo can not only make people happy,but also make unhappy. Mr.conway didn't believed in voodoo and laughed at it,but...This story is very interesting!I think there are many person such as Mr.Conway-too self-respect and don't listen to other people-and such people are punished by Heaven someday. It is important to listen carefully to other people and try to think other people's mind.

Voodoo is like a magic and like a doll. People put pins or knives into it, and the feels terrible pain. In Haiti there are a few people who know how to use voodoo. Kee is an old man and lives in Haiti. For him, his brandfather's grave is very important. But the graveyard is destroyed by Conway who plans to build house and shops in the graveyard. So Kee is very angry and uses Voodoo.This story is very interesting. It is easy to read. But I can guess the end of the story easily. I recommend this book!

Voodoo is ancient magic that are used now in Haichi. It helps people, but sometimes hurts people. This story is about the power of Voodoo. And tell us how important local people and their lives are.Voodoo and the users of it, houngans are misterious. But I'm not afraid of them. Although voodoo's power is strong, it's not unreasonable. The traditional magic helps who believe and respect it. We shouldn't laugh at old believes. There are misterious things in our world too.

James Conway is the manager, and he wants money.He start to develop in Haiti.The people who live in there did not want such developing plan.Kee is one of them, and he can use "VOODOO" it is magical power,and he can contact to some "spilits".Several days ago, I read "The Moon and Sixpence"( written by W.Somerset Maugham).In that book ,Haiti was drown such as Heaven.In this book ,VOODOO ISLAND ,there is drown like that the place which has mystic power.The end of story is little sad I think.

The main character, James Conway wanted to build new houses and shops, hotels on graveyard in Haiti to get much money. A old man, Kee warned him with "Voodoo", but he ignored it. It is the masic of the Haiti... This book's story is horror. Especially, I think ending is very dark and sad. I couldn't expect it, so it was very amaging. I don't believe voodoo. Do you believe it?
