Expected more

I expected more from this book. Instead of an interesting book about Ed and Lorraine Warren and their lesser known cases, it was a narrated synopsis of transcripts from interviews, radio programs and meetings. And, to be honest, the narration wasn't very compelling.

Entertaining!

I found the book to be very entertaining, if not a bit scary. Listening to the Warren's tell their stories about dealing with demonic presences will keep you awake.

Deceiving

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The title of the book was very deceiving. I thought it would go into more detail of the "the Conjuring" story, but it was mentioned only once. The book went back and forth a lot with discussing the Amityville Horror.<br/><br/>It really should have just focused on 3 or 4 stories, not a multitude. I believe every chapter was a different instance and you never got the true feeling of what was going on. It was all a glance over. The book is told in a "he-said-she-said" format, which makes it difficult to engage with.<br/><br/>It should have been just actual accounts of the facts and less of the "well... in this type of instance..." or "normally...". There was no elaboration and I just found it lacking. If they wanted to do something like this, it should have been a "guide" of some-type.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I think I will listen to a more specific paranormal account.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narrator did a decent job. I think my complaint is with the direction that the director took with this. At many points in the book they discuss recordings of the paranormal. At these points it would make sense to play these instead of the narrator acting it out, but instead we get the narrator trying to sound creepy and "demonic".

Did The Demonologist inspire you to do anything?

It has inspired me to find a better book about the Warren's or find a book that is more focused.

Any additional comments?

The way the book was written really makes you think the Warren's were bat-sh*t-crazy. The entire format of the book just makes you wonder if you were listening to fact or fiction. I'm not a huge fan of the Warren's or do I claim to know a lot about them, but for couple who have been associated with the handling and extraction of so many perverse spirits, this is a poor representation of their line of work.

First Hand Insight from Humble Experts

What made the experience of listening to The Demonologist the most enjoyable?

The story and wisdom shared through the first hand experiences were conveyed with honest conviction. No apologies are ever offered for the knowledge and understanding the Warrens share. They have one overall goal, to expose and educate. They offer the evidence of their investigations and experience in a matter of fact tone - allowing the audience to simply take it, or leave it.<br/><br/>Conviction is a dying art in America. Speaking with certainty is often frowned upon by the current generation. When hearing their words expressed with no apologies, and without pandering, it was (for me) a source of relief and joy.

Who was your favorite character and why?

This isn't the type of story with fictional characters for one to love/hate. This story was the account of Ed and Lorraine Warren's experience with the paranormal. The accounts the author passes on in this writing are what make up the heart of this book.

What about Todd Haberkorn’s performance did you like?

Todd Haberkorn's smooth voice, inflections, and consistent voice acting brought a wonderful level of life and vibrancy to this book.

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

The conclusions drawn by Ed and Lorraine after years of experience, research, and investigation were powerful. What they believe, and the truths they share, are not things arrived at lightly. The passion and conviction behind their expert wisdom, as a whole, I found to be mentally and spiritually stirring.
