Fighting the Dark Side

Entertaining and enlightening. I learned much about the 'other side', how it works and the difference between human and inhuman spirits. If anyone knows the answers they do.

insightful

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

The performance from the narrator was fantastic. I would listen to Todd Haberkorn as a narrator at any other time. Very good reading and performance of characters even though this was non fiction.

frightening, yet I could not put it down!

the authors and narrator both put the reader into a terrifying nightmare, with such horror yet no amount of turning it off stop's you from wanting more! so much respect for the Warren's for telling their first accounts. What an amazing job by the narrator, who had me laughing at one stage and scared to close my eyes the next!

I have learned many things from this book!

I have learned many things from this book and I think it is compulsory for any human being to familiarise themselves with these things in order to better protect themselves. God said His people are lost in a lack of knowledge. Educate yourself!

Unbelievable

I listened to this for about 3 hours. What I didn't like most about this book was the sheer arrogance that comes across. When asked a question about anything supernatural his answer would never be "I don't know" for example, there will always be a detailed explanation which further leads me to believe he plays on peoples confidence in him. I did not expect this book to give me some proof of other-worlds, it does claim to though, Ed Warren states that he could easily prove these phenonema in a conference yet he doesn't. Why not prove it on tv?

I did think that this book may at least serve as a spooky ghost story but it takes itself too seriously, I feel like I am spending too much time listening to him trying to convince that what he is saying isn't made up.

I am not saying that everything he says is made up I just felt it was.

Good listen but...

Enjoyed the book but lets be honest we know its a load of old tosh. Seems to me to be 2 Christians trying to show us the power of prayer.

For fans of the Warrens

I've tried listening to this several times but it feels like it's been playing for hours without getting beyond the introduction. I made the mistake of assuming it was about the demonology but it's a blow by blow about the authors. It may have gone into detail of what they enjoyed most for breakfast as children but it's so hard to stay interested and get into this book, I can't remember. I'm possibly being unfair as plenty others enjoyed it but over an hour in and all I've learned is that the authors give lectures about themselves, have written a book about themselves and appear to be fascinated with themselves. My mistake for assuming the book was about the demonology. I'd never heard of the Warrens so didn't assume it would be a 'life of megastars' fan club book.

Chills down the spine

Wonderful book. Sent chills down my spine on the long drives home from work. Didn't want to look into the rear view mirror most of the time!

A New Take on the Enfield Poltergeist!

An interesting listen, being born in Enfield and knowing the case well showed small dramatisations in a biographical work. But overall worth its credit.

Fascinating.. Could stop listening

Such an insight into their amazing career covering all the well known hauntings. Narrated seamlessly and was sad to finish this book. Highly recommended to those with a thirst for the paranormal
