    "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!!!

    "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.

    "its OK"

    I found it rather one sided, its written from the catholic point of view and very conflicting as to their church beliefs. its not all that scary. I felt its full of allot of fluff to get people to go to church. to me I found it to be as mixed up as the christian religion ! but someone did a good job writing the book. listen for yourself. your views may not reflect my views. I find the entire catholic religion screwed up anyhow.

    "Had the hairs on my arm standing up!"

    This book scared the bejeezus out of me, but I could not put the book down until I finished it. If you're a fan of the Exorcist or Amityville Horror, then this is the book for you!

    "Snooze!"

    Absolutely nothing about this book struck me as non-fiction. I found it to be ridiculous :-( I tried so hard to enjoy it, but I couldn't. To be fair I only got through about an hour of it. Yawn!!

    "Superb"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Demonologist to be better than the print version?

    Probably. I haven't read the printed version, but I enjoyed listening to it. What the Warrens had to deal with was amazing. I can't even imagine doing what they did.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The seriousness of the story. It was true, which makes it even scarier.


    Which character – as performed by Todd Haberkorn – was your favorite?

    Ed Warren, who else?


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    There's so much more to this world than humans could ever comprehend.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend this to anyone who's interested in the paranormal.

    "Great Story"
    If you could sum up The Demonologist in three words, what would they be?

    My three word summary would be Very Interesting History. These people worked for years and the stories they have are very interesting. I listened to this right after The Amityville Horror, a few questions I had after that book were cleared up. I don't know if I believe everything but the stories are very fun to listen to.


    What about Todd Haberkorn’s performance did you like?

    The reader was not slow or dull, he kept you interested in the story.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I feel like the film based on certain aspects of the book was already made and it was made well. The Conjuring was a really great horror film.

    "If you like this kind of thing... you'll love it!"
    Would you listen to The Demonologist again? Why?

    Yes, to have my friends listen too!


    What about Todd Haberkorn’s performance did you like?

    Very good at the voices. I could easily decipher who was who.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    So many I don't know where to start but the ones that stand out in my mind are facts and stories about Ouija boards! Also the stories of real encounters are mind blowing.


    Any additional comments?

    Any avid supernatural enthusiast will be entertained by this audiobook. Accounts of how Ed and Lorraine met, their artistic talent, and their claim to fame. Listen during the day! ;)

    What made the experience of listening to The Demonologist the most enjoyable?

    I love being scared!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story of Annabelle. I was so creeped out I couldn't listen to it when it got dark out. Saved it for my morning commute.


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

    It makes me want to go visit their museum! During the day, of course.

    "My first audio book."
    What did you like best about The Demonologist? What did you like least?

    I was interested in the whole layout of the book but familiar with the stories separately told.
    So this made the design or structure a bit old even though the concept was new to me.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lorraine of course I'm bias, I had the pleasure of meeting this amazing couple at a dinner party in California. At the time many many years back we all were sharing techniques in meditation, clairvoyance, and how far each of us had traveled over or out to communicate with the passed. Talk of dimensions and possibilities of what kind of beings could be functioning right beside us ?
    This was definitely thrilling for most people hadn't heard or known of anybody experiencing such adventures and who does it take to reach these obstacles ?
    A lot of connections were made for everyone that night that led on to western coast enlightenment !


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The hectic turmoil of Lorraine & Ed with Demon's, Nasty Spirits giving chase or just harassing & threatening this brave duo.


    Was The Demonologist worth the listening time?

    If you weren't familiar with the stories it be a great presentation of Ed & Lorraine .


    Any additional comments?

    Lorraine, I watched take on her own in a lot more different categories after Ed passed . I do feel like over the years just before Ed passed I could see what appeared controls of the business start to change, there was a difference it seem in presentation and of as late now a rather advertising in scary attempts to get attention by horror.
    Don't get me wrong I'll always admire Lorraine and I guarantee she is one of the bravest women I've ever met. { there's some personal questions about her life I'd Love to ask ! }

    "Unbelievable"

    I listened to this for about 3 hours. What I didn't like most about this book was the sheer arrogance that comes across. When asked a question about anything supernatural his answer would never be "I don't know" for example, there will always be a detailed explanation which further leads me to believe he plays on peoples confidence in him. I did not expect this book to give me some proof of other-worlds, it does claim to though, Ed Warren states that he could easily prove these phenonema in a conference yet he doesn't. Why not prove it on tv?

    I did think that this book may at least serve as a spooky ghost story but it takes itself too seriously, I feel like I am spending too much time listening to him trying to convince that what he is saying isn't made up.

    I am not saying that everything he says is made up I just felt it was.
