Scary fun.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. If the person in question was into the paranormal this is a good choice. the best part is that these are supposed to be true stories. Some of them are even better than what fiction writers davelop anyway.

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

The story about Annabelle the doll.

Which character – as performed by Todd Haberkorn – was your favorite?

It was not really a charachter driven book so this really doesn't apply. I will say that the narrarrator did a good job.

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

Just say no to ouija boards!

Any additional comments?

This is a good listen. You may have to suspend disbelief depending on what your views are on the subject of the paranormal. Also, some of the Warrens ideas are a bit left field, but they aren't overbearing about their beliefs so I had no problem. Overall, I would definitely recommend this book. I read it originally 20 years ago or so, although the title may have been a little different . The good news is that it still holds up.

Was this supposed to be instructional?

I literally had no idea what they were talking about the whole time and everything seemed to repeat itself. Tons of metaphors. They mentioned using science but never discussed specifics....My least favorite was the very last line of the book.

A Summary of Professional Experience

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

Spiritually frightening, Rich with detail

What did you like best about this story?

I read this book to hear about what the Warren's have faced throughout their career. I was not disappointed. I appreciate their opinions and insights about the patterns they have observed in the cases in which they have been involved.

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

The demonic is not unpredictable and is not unmeasurable.

Any additional comments?

This book clearly chooses the most extreme cases that illustrate what the Warren's have dealt with in their long career of helping families confront the paranormal and the demonic in the paranormal world. If you have never experienced anything paranormal or have never read any book at all about non-fiction paranormal this may not be the best first book with which to begin. If you are an experienced non-fiction paranormal reader and/or have faced down your own paranormal events then this is a truly interesting and insightful read. A wealth of disturbing and unsettling situations are discussed in this book from the Warren's unique and personal point of view. If you are tolerant of others' views and listen to be informed and to understand then this book is an essential addition to your paranormal library.

Terrifying, Dramatic, and Informative!

Where does The Demonologist: The Extraordinary Career of Ed and Lorraine Warren rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I saw the movie The Conjuring last week and wanted to know more about Ed & Lorraine Warren, who are the leads in the film. I didn't know quite what to expect from the book. Turns out it scared me more than the movie! These cases are true. This isn't a work of fiction. The narrator was really good and did so many interesting voices. I really liked Ed's voice, he is very down to earth, even though he has seen so much... I would put this audiobook easily in my top 3 of all time.

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

It wasn't too religious at all, and the stories are true! You can tell there was a lot of research behind it. Very well written. And very dramatic. Leave the lights on for sure!

Which scene was your favorite?

Some scenes involving the exorcisms were very intense. Those were my favorite. The demonic voices the narrator did were amazing/terrifying.

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

Yes! I would have listened it in one sitting, but I had to go to work. When I got back home, I got to listen to the rest of it!

True but hard to touch, Scary absolutely

Would you consider the audio edition of The Demonologist to be better than the print version?

I saw 'The Conjuring' and wanted to know more. I am just that way, factual, investigative and seeking evidence. I also love a good story, and this one didn't fail. Part 'Campfire Scary' part 'Holy Crap, I will never look at an Ouija Borad again' scary. I ended up listening to this along my commute, not quite wanting to listen to this at night.

But in the end, I didn't finish it. Oh it was interesting for sure, but 'Demon Cars along icy roads racing into us' said to me 'Not a Ghost or 'Non Human Spirit' but immagination gone a bit to far.

But still, case studies don't lie, history is there, something is there.

I grappled with the 'Physcial' Part of Energy being able to focus, why can a spirit pull a girl by her hair but you can't touch or see what is doing this. But facts are facts and again, something is doing something out there. Just as I can't see infrared, i am sure that it does exist.

The book was definately more detailed than the movie 'The Conjuring' and mystery surrounds all their case studies. Why they keep a room with so much evil objects is beyond me.

Don't get me wrong, I didn't finish this book out of boredom. I almost never, ever quit a book before the end. I guess as a super postive guy, the very thought of all that Evil, especially at night was just to much to keep putting into my brain.

Dont' take this book lightly. After so much of this book, it makes sense. Why do normal people snap and go on murdering rampage, are so evil to rape, but later not realize why they 'Snaped' Is it the Army of the Fallen Angels that lined up with Satan, eternally corrupting those who seek their dark powers, are full of hate etc.

I just wish there was a companion book 'Angel's among us' that show how great some people truly are, from Mother Teresa, Ghandi, suvirors of the Boston Marathon, such as Lance Benson, who ran the race with no legs. Surely Angels inhabit us just as easily as Demons.

So in the end, super scary because it is real, so real you don't want to pull out a Oujia Board and say 'Talk to me, is there anyone there'

I dare you, after reading this book, I double dog dare you!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Ed and Lorraine both. I truly belive they can tap into these forces of the spirit world.

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

It was good audio reading, it kept me listening, engaged.

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

The Devil or God, choose a side, else it be choosen for you. I kid but this point rang true. Be Positive and good things come (I know, I am and they do) but be negative, run to this negative energy and what do you expect will happen.

Any additional comments?

One of the most fascinating books I couldn't finish..or didn't dare to finish. Read it, you will sew what I mean when you read this book.

Creepy, and makes you wonder!

I am a skeptic... but this book was creepy and a fun listen, even if I don't know if I can agree with most of it. I would have liked a little bit of more factual content. For example, at one point Ed Warren is quoted as saying that "satanists are the largest growing group on college campuses"... really?

The book style takes the form of a long interview type of story, interspersed with stories of cases of haunting and demon possession. The stories make good "scary stories" even if you don't believe it all, it is still a good listen.

I was not expecting this...

What did you love best about The Demonologist?

The facts! Ed and Lorraine are people I respect so much in the paranormal world and in general, and I trust everything they say. I love that they're fellow believers and that they are fearless! The true accounts in this book made this book amazing! I didn't want it to end.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved the 6 demons with the cockney accents! Omg they were hilarious. Now...if I was in that house, I would have been trembling but listening to them via audiobook was hilarious. They sounded like fun dudes who just liked to have a good time. Too bad they were demons hahaha.
Ed: "Turn off a light."
Demon Frankie: "Ah I can't mate, Billy pulled off my arm."
It was pretty funny before the guttural noises. EEK!

Which scene was your favorite?

The Cockney demons replay was done very well but honestly all the reenactments of the possessions were impeccable. Very scary, believable, amazing.

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

The Best EFFING Paranormal Book To Read Ever By Paranormal Legends Ed and Lorraine Warren. AKA Heaven's Warriors. AKA The Coolest Couple Who Ever Lived.

Any additional comments?

Please somebody turn Ed and Lorraine's other books into audiobooks. This is the only one available! Also, I did not expect this book to be scary. And it didn't sink in until 2 days later when I was getting ready for bed, finding myself convinced I was going to spot a demon in the corner of my eye. I found the tips VERY helpful: Keep a bright house, a positive attitude about life, get baptized, NEVER touch a Ouija board, or mess with any type of magic EVER. This book was seriously a joy. A terrifying joy.

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!

Personable, insightful, clarifying

What did you love best about The Demonologist?

How normal Ed and Lorraine really are.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the stories that were told. It is hard to really know a lot about them and to hear some "stories" one would think they were very religious. Though they are spiritual, they seem very easy to approach and talk to and I was very glad for that. They are very careful to make a distinction between what is considered "bad" regarding the spiritual beliefs that have been demonized by fundamentalist, the Rapture people and some by Hollywood. I really enjoyed the stories that they told and how educating they are to explain certain things. They are private people and I understand why, but they are so much like everyday people and seem to just want to help where they can. They could be your next door neighbor.

Which character – as performed by Todd Haberkorn – was your favorite?

Hard to really say, he did them all so well, even the female and kids. Good narrator.

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

I liked that they set out to educate people about what is dark and what is not, that distinction seems to get forgotten and tried to warn those about fooling around with things that they know nothing about. I wish I could meet Lorraine very much.

Any additional comments?

The Warrens seem like such wonderful people that had a chance to do something that is hard for some people, through no real fault of their own. People do care about the troubles of others, but there is not always a way to help your neighbor. To help some one in this way is remarkable. There are so many things I wish I could ask Lorraine.
I first became aware during the Amittyville Horror investigation as I lived in PA at the time. There were many theories about what was going on and of all of them, I thought that Lorraine's not only was correct, but also that of all of the speculation her's made the most sense and was very believable.
