    "no there there"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The book never seems to begin--it is always starting and re-starting and you never feel like you're able to finally get past the Warren's repetitive explanations of the nature of their work and sink your teeth into the stories themselves.

    Some chapters are a welcome exception and there is some sense of narrative, but then they return again to transcriptions of interviews with the Warrens, who, even 10 hours into listening, are still explaining that they need to pray before attending an exorcism.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I suppose the performer was good. Still, I find him (or, perhaps, him by default) irritating.

    "An Eye-opener!"

    Though this book is not a purposely Christian book, it has increased my faith by explaining what happens behind the scenes in God's unseen world. I am truly pleased with this book. Warning: If you're spooked out easily, this might not be the book for you.

    "AWFUL"
    What disappointed you about The Demonologist?

    Not scary in least and very, very hokey. The "true accounts" were ridiculous and it is way too heavy handed on the whole religious aspect. So, so awful.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Gerald Brittle again?

    No


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Todd Haberkorn?

    Possibly

    "Entertaining, informative"

    Whether you believe in the supernatural or not, this is a great listen. It's like an extended interview with two people (though Ed is about 85 percent of it) about their long and unusual career working with people afflicted by the supernatural. Great stories, great insight into the rational and organization of dealing with demons.

    I mainly listen to audiobooks while I'm at work since I rarely have time to read. It helps drown out the voices in my head.

    Story
    "Disturbingly entertaining It's not real..right? :\"
    What did you love best about The Demonologist?

    Not a traditional novel, it was presented as a journal.

    I loved it, though. I am the biggest skeptic, I don't believe anything- even facts. The way the Warrens discussed their experiences...I was totally convinced. I briefly entertained the possiblilty my 18 month old son was poccessed bc he looked at me wierd, like an evil adult. He can be a jerk, though. I dismissed it as such but I'm keeping my eye on that kid.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I enjoyed the Annabelle story. If you've seen any of the Conjuring, Annabelle, Sinister, etc movies you should listen to this- very interesting.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrarating was like listening to your grandfather do his best to tell you a story you really NEED to hear so you're doing your best to be respectful and patient but you'd wish someone else would listen to this guy and tell you later, after Pop pop's gone to bed.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It made it seem like there are demons everywhere and ghosts all over the place. Is this real? Normally made up stuff is clearly BS but I'm not sure how to fact check this...


    Any additional comments?

    I'll probably get some of the other about the Warrens if they're on sale.
