    "Educational"

    This is an educational and objective look at the spiritual world. The narration is exceptional and the narrator brings you in with his ability to switch to many different voices. Definately worth the credit and it will have you taking an extra look around the bedroom when you turn the lights out.

    "Faith Renewed!"
    Would you listen to The Demonologist again? Why?

    I believe that once you listen to the first-hand accounts in this book there will be no need to listen to it again. You will want to seek out more information on the "bright" side of life.


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

    The Demonologist is a book about the war between good and evil. I would never dare compare any book to the Bible, but this book highlights what real evil really is and what we as people are responsible for doing to protect ourselves from evil.


    What about Todd Haberkorn’s performance did you like?

    He was a first rate narrator. I think he did a fine job.


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

    I could not stop listening to this book once I started. It was an assault on my mind and it awakened the faith in God I have had inside of me all along.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is powerful and it has a purpose. What I was able to draw from it was the fact that God is real and Satan is real. We live in a world that does it's very best to distract us from those two facts. The more distracted we are the easier it is for evil and sin to work it's way into our daily lives without us realizing what is going on. Evil takes many forms and most of the time it's not a grotesque creature with horns and a tail. This book will do a very good job of scaring the Hell out of you. That's exactly what it did to me.

    "Good & Informative on the workings of Demonology"
    Any additional comments?

    I was hoping for a little more scare, but there were definitely times it got a little hair raising! I found it very informative on the whole demonology scale. So if you're looking for a scary book, in my opinion this isn't something you get a whole lot of scare from.

    "Outdated with bad scholarship"

    The book claims Wicca is 4000 years old, it's less than a hundred. Also judging from the timing of its release and its stupid claims of thousands of satanist covens taking over America and College Kid USA it was probably a contributor to the famously debunked 'satanic panic'. It's an interesting listen best accompanied by a large quantity of skepticism and common sense, mostly as an example of one period and perspective in the occult /paranormal movement in the Eastern U.S.

    The narrator was really the highlight but he couldn't rescue the content.

    "Not what you want it to be"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would have preferred if the focus of the book had been on the hauntings and what was happening in the house/to the people. Instead, it focused on the exorcisms themselves. I was looking for a scary read and did not get that.


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

    Only if they were interested in the philosophy behind Demonology.

    "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.

    "Very Informative"
    What did you love best about The Demonologist?

    After watching the Conjuring, I wanted to find out more about Ed and Lorraine Warren, this audio book was easy to listen to and made me understand why they did what they did as a career.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The narrator spoke in a interesting voice and made it to where you would understand the different voices in the audio book


    Any additional comments?

    LOVED IT! Didn't want this book to end!

    "A thorough and engaging book, spectacularly read"

    I am a BIG 'fraidy cat when it comes to these things, but I am also curious. As a Catholic, I found this book to be really engaging, and Ed Warren's discussion does come from a Catholic's perspective. This book was FASCINATING and useful in that it helps the reader understand why these things happen and how to avoid them! HUGE.

    The reader does a SPECTACULAR job in reading this, especially the parts where he takes on the persona of the demons. SCARY!!!

    I highly recommend this book.

    "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.
