    Young Samuel Johnson and his dachshund, Boswell, are trying to show initiative by trick-or-treating a full three days before Halloween which is how they come to witness strange goings-on at 666 Crowley Road. The Abernathys don't mean any harm by their flirtation with the underworld, but when they unknowingly call forth Satan himself, they create a gap in the universe.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have recommended this audiobook to friends! It's great fun, packed with wonderful characters (the demon Nurd is one of my favorites), and the narration absolutely makes it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters, and the footnotes (yes, the footnotes!) - very funny, yet still true to the facts they convey (science, history, etc.).


    Have you listened to any of Jonathan Cake’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I will!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, although I didn't have time to do that, so it took 3 sittings.


    Any additional comments?

    Already a fan of John Connolly's thrillers, and now sold on his ability to write humor.
