    "Disappointing"
    Any additional comments?

    I was excited to listen to this after all the reviews about how scary it was. It wasn't scary at all to me. From this book it seems like demons are more like mischievous scamps than anything terrifying. If you think "demons" turning on the radio real loud and moving the limbs of a rag-doll to a different position when everyone leaves the house is scary, well then this book is for you!

    "Ed & Lorraine Warren are amazing"

    I admit, I was not sure what to expect going into this book. I was afraid it was going to be full of monotone, boring stated facts. IT WAS SO TOTALLY NOT!

    Ed and Lorraine Warren are amazing. R.I.P. Ed Warren. I had no idea the true impact that the Warren's have had on this earth until I listened to this book. The amount of knowledge and spiritual power that both Ed and Lorraine hold is beyond comprehension. The danger and peril they have put themselves in time and time again to help others is the most selfless and devout thing another human could ever do for someone. When I found out that Ed left the mortal world in 2006, I actually wept. Tears of sadness for his amazing wife Lorraine, his family and all the lives he has touched and could have touched with the amazing power he has in his beliefs and knowledge. Ed Warren and his wife Lorraine are truly touched by God himself. They are not "men of cloth" as Ed likes to put it. I think they are something even more specialized.

    I hope and pray that anyone that was blessed enough to be helped by this amazing duo has carried on the ways of the Warren's and shared in their amazing Glory. Prior to reading this book, I admit that I thought I knew a lot. After finishing this book, I realize that Ed and Lorraine Warren have taught me A LOT in the few hours I spent listening to them than I have learned the whole 41 years I have been on this earth. For this, I say "Thank you Ed and Lorraine". Someday when you two are reunited in Heaven, I hope to be able to say Thank you in Person in the Heavenly plane. I only wish I could have met you on earth.

    "The devil has red skin, a tail, and a spear...mhhm"

    If you expect any kind of chills, fear or believable content don't bother with this book. If you think "the devil" has red burnt skin, a tail, horns and a pitch fork then by all means this book is for you. If you think witches hire demons to go from house to house stealing money and bringing it back to them,, then this book is for you. The screen writers did a fantastic job turning milk toast into chills when dealing with the Conjure house . I hope they do as good a job with Annabelle . I do not recommend you purchase this book about Ed and Lorraine Warrens career as demonologist and medium respectively . It is disappointing at best.

    "DO NOT LISTEN WHILE DRIVING AT NIGHT"
    What made the experience of listening to The Demonologist the most enjoyable?

    Everything...Each and every encounter Ed & Lorraine Warren experienced.All the facts, information and warnings they provided.The narrator was also fantastic.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Demonologist?

    The real story of Annabelle the doll


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

    Negative...but he was great in this one.


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

    Of how things we may find fun or harmless...can bring a inhuman spirit into our lives.


    Any additional comments?

    The Warrens believe there are 2 different spirits.One who is a ghost and rather harmless. The other is evil...demons.I personally believe demons do want to hurt us (mental and physically) as described in this book. Yet I believe what they truly want, is to lead us away from God. To accomplish this insidious act. They will use fear, as we are lead to believe. Yet I also believe they will use happiness. How? Well if God asked us not to try to communicate with spirits. Would you listen to God? What if you just experienced a joyful visit from a dead relative? Wouldn't you overlook this command from God? Wouldn your thought and ideas about ghost, spirits, etc. change?Without you even realizing it. Do you see how this demon used a act of joy to now lead you away from God and his teachings?

    "Really a scary scary story"

    Knowing it's a true story.....


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    How Ed and Lorraine Warren seemed to take it all in stride and ready for the next battle


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The whole book was...


    If you could give The Demonologist a new subtitle, what would it be?

    Hold on to your seat...


    Any additional comments?

    Being Catholic, it's one of the scariest books or movies I have ever heard or seen.

    "It's Warren Time!"
    What did you like best about The Demonologist? What did you like least?

    The accounts of real life possessions and theories on demons was most interesting, but the structure of the writing was a bit messy. Accounts could be better organized.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Sort of disappointed at the end. The Warrens are the godfather and godmother of ghost investigating in the 20th and 21st century! The accounts read in this book are engaging, but many of times it felt like you were listening to the same information only worded slightly different.


    What aspect of Todd Haberkorn’s performance would you have changed?

    Todd did a great job of vocalizing the characters differently.

    "Entertaining, if you're into the Paranormal"
    If you could sum up The Demonologist in three words, what would they be?

    Creepy, Provoking, Enlightening


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

    The way he vocalized the thoughts of the Warren's, the way he told the story. I liked it.


    Any additional comments?

    I read this book many many many years ago, when I saw it here I had to have it and listen to it. Was not disappointed. I started reading the Warrens' work when I was a teenager back in the early 80's and have been fascinated with ever since. It was very sad when Ed passed away back in 2006 but we each must move on. This is a couple I could have sat down and talked with for hours. Not everyone believes in the paranormal, and for those that don't well they don't, I am not one to push what I believe onto anyone else. I have always believed in it and will continue to listen to stories and read books on the subject.

    If your are ghost paranoid then this book is not for you if you wish to sleep peacefully again, but if you can listen to it with a detached sense of mind then it is a great listen, if you don't believe in the paranormal at all I would keep on moving to the next book cause the whole book will be an eye roll for you.

    "Scariest movie ever!"

    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.
