    Story
    "I WANT MORE!!!!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Demonologist to be better than the print version?

    YES.... this felt like an extension of the movie. The only way to improve it would have been have Lorraine Warren do her vocals. But no matter. This book was a home run. You need more books of this caliber out there.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The stories,,, though I know there are many more not yet told...sequel please..?


    What about Todd Haberkorn’s performance did you like?

    He is a fantastic actor/ reader. Don't use any other reader if there is a followup with just Lorain.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Some of it scared the crap out of me... I will say that. I had nightmares for several days. I never get nightmares/


    Any additional comments?

    Audible this is your clue to get more compelling supernatural Christian nonfiction books out there. There is a market for it. This book needs a sequel. I have seen enough UFO crap. This is you next target to make money.

    "Unbelievable stories - incredible couple!"
    Would you listen to The Demonologist again? Why?

    I don't think I would because I've already heard it. Maybe in a couple of years.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The fact the these cases are true. I believe strongly in God and good, therefore it only stands to reason that evil also exists.


    What about Todd Haberkorn’s performance did you like?

    He did a great job with the voices. I like the way he put inflections in Ed's voice,


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

    Not necessarily - the information can be disturbing, so taking breaks is necessary. The stories are broken into nice sections making it easy to find stopping points.


    Any additional comments?

    The cases described in this book are amazing to listen if not undesirable to believe. Ed and Lorraine are amazing people and God bless them for doing what they did and even more importantly for spreading the word. Evil exists and our best weapon is God and love.

    I hope there are more people with Ed's gift out there someone to help.

    And everybody please.... Get rid of Ouija boards!!!

    Story
    "Strictly for Entertainment Value"

    I read this book mostly because I think the Warrens are good for a laugh every once in awhile and that some of the stories in it could be creepy albeit completely unrealistic (and in my opinion, entirely made up). I purchased this book during the week of Halloween and wanted to get into the spirit of things. Plus, it's fun to be scared.

    It's is a book about demon hunters, and supposedly a nonfiction account of two people who uncover ghosts and exorcise demons for a living. At first the book seemed interesting and kept my attention. However; the further I got into the book, the more unrealistic it became for me.

    I'm more of a skeptical person upfront, and I'm not fooled easily (at least I think I'm not.) As the outrageous claims became more abundant, I just began to look at it as entertainment, plus it helped on some sleepless nights, but some of the stories in the book are just complete BS. There were a few chapters with interesting/creepy/fascinating stories but they were inter-spliced with long stretches of repetitive information and repeated cautions.

    Basically...don't use a Ouija board.

    The narrator was actually really good, and I think I'll see what other books he's read.

    Overall: If you like a good or mild scare, this could be your book, but stay realistic throughout the book, then you'll know what I'm talking about.

    "Disappointing"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes and no. While there were some interesting parts that were like hearing a good spooky ghost story the book itself was not so great. For me it felt like the Warrens, particularly Mr. Warren was just spouting his greatness. The narrator was awesome and the best part of the book.


    Would you recommend The Demonologist to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. It was not a good enough book for me to recommend.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I had no favorites.

    "I was in from the first line"
    What did you love best about The Demonologist?

    I really enjoyed the whole story. Each story brought a new element to the book. The fact that it was based on a true story made it even better.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked each story. The narrator did a great job switching from voice to voice.


    What does Todd Haberkorn bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is an extremely great reader.


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

    I would have if I had the time to.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this book to any adult listener. Definitely not for kiddos

    "Creepy, and makes you wonder!"

    I am a skeptic... but this book was creepy and a fun listen, even if I don't know if I can agree with most of it. I would have liked a little bit of more factual content. For example, at one point Ed Warren is quoted as saying that "satanists are the largest growing group on college campuses"... really?

    The book style takes the form of a long interview type of story, interspersed with stories of cases of haunting and demon possession. The stories make good "scary stories" even if you don't believe it all, it is still a good listen.

    "Knowledge"

    The problem with many people today is that they have no knowledge of the evil spirits that abound in our world and the ignorance of dabbling with them. Explore God rather than Satan!

    "Terrifying and Educational!!!"

    I wanted to know more on the Warren's and grabbed this to listen too. I now know a lot more about the supernatural than ever before. I have a lot of respect for the Warren's and what they did for all those families. I recommend this book for anybody curious about the supernatural world.

    "If you are a beliver listen to this."

    If you are a beliver in the supernatural then this is the book for you. It's fun to hear the life story of Ed and Lorraine Warren. The things they have done make me wish to go study demonology. But if you are not a beliver then listen to it anyway, it's a fun and a little scary story.

    ...P.S. Don't listen to it before you go to sleep or are walking alone in the dark.
