    "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 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.

    "Dont listen to at night! Scary!"

    Very intense and terrifying audible book. Listen to this with caution and not around kids.
    having said that, this book is incredibly interesting and intriguing with many aspects of Catholicism I was not aware of. My curiosity was tugged and twisted to the point I had to finish the book.

    just one more thought.....either the Warrens were the great fraudsters or they were completely telling the truth. I don't think there is any middle ground to find the truth.

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

    Yes, because the info is accurate in regard to true exorcism. The narrator is very good.
    It is not Hollywood.


    What other book might you compare The Demonologist to and why?

    Hostage to the Devil., because Malachi Martin was an exorcist and the five case studies presented were enough to make you lose sleep. You do not read it at night.


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

    Ed Warren was my favorite character. Very real.


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

    The most interesting tidbit is not a tidbit. The overall presentation and clarity left much to the imagination.


    Any additional comments?

    Please do an audio book for Hostage to the Devil.

    "a good listen"

    it was a pretty good listen overall, I didn't struggle through it at all. the story is pretty solid but it is more of a biographical piece than a horror, so if that's what you're looking for this isn't that.
