Engaging, Interesting and Informative

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

As the title of my review would suggest: Engaging, Interesting, and Informative

Who was your favorite character and why?

I would argue the main character is Ed Warren, as he does most of the speaking. But for my *favorite* character, it would be the British ghost who suggested to rip the wallpaper down as thoughtfully and "Britishly" as one could imagine.

What about Todd Haberkorn’s performance did you like?

I listened to "The Amityville Horror" and despite being about similar material written in a similar style, it came out as being read a series of facts or a police report. Mr. Haberkorn's tone is engaging and thoughtful and I love his vocal differentiation between characters (especially old women).

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

I am unsure that I would be physically capable of sitting for the duration of this book, but it certainly was a high point of my commute from work (and commuting from northern Virginia to DC is no joke)

Any additional comments?

Loved it.<br/>Don't play with Ouija Boards.<br/>There isn't a demon in your house.

Awesome Narrator

Cool creepy and informative. The reader really knocked it out of the park by making different voices. That guy is awesome. Anyway definitely listen to this book but not home alone at night

Hard to Follow

What would have made The Demonologist better?

Better writing and flow would have made the book better.

What could Gerald Brittle have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Focus on the characters and decide who is telling the story a third person or the warrens.

Which scene was your favorite?

None

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The work that the book talks about is important.

Any additional comments?

The book switches between first and third person at random and seems to be all over the place. There is no real flow to this book.

OK if you get past the Christian symbology.

As a younger person I would have disregarded this as mere Christian propaganda, but it is interesting none the less, if you can see past the religious agenda. Human nature is of both light and dark. The struggle is real, regardless of dogma. Faith and confidence vs intimidation and despair. This is the struggle through and through despite any and all symbology. Two energies in defiance of each other. I think this is the overall message of the Warren story. Not one of religious conformity but human spiritual understanding.

Loved

So I'm not a huge fan of horror, creepy, or scary books. I was a little nervous about getting this book and it turns out it was very much worth it!! It was still creepy to me but it was a very "matter of fact" type of book. Very informative due to their experiences. I loved the narration too which a BIG deal to me since I'm listening to it. Loved and I have already recommended it to a few of my friends.
