Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Demonologist Falls a Bit Short of Being Devilish I've read Pyper before, but this one just didn't grip me. It wasn't as 'scary' as I was hoping it would be. I'm wondering if you would have to be a parent to be rightly horrified? However, there was one truly creepy scene that took place in a basement. That one gave me the heebie-jeebies! This book did make me want to go back and brush up on my Milton, though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Scary Story In The Demonologist, the main character, David Ullman, is a literature professor at Columbia University in New York City. His area of expertise is John Milton’s Paradise Lost, a 17th century poem that retells biblical events and relates Satan’s banishment from Heaven. One day, a thin woman invites him to come to Venice to witness a phenomenon, since he could be of help as a demonologist. At first, he declines but eventually decides to go with his daughter, Tess, after his wife tells him she is leaving him. While in Italy, things go from bad to worse, and Tess disappears under mysterious circumstances. Grief stricken, David returns to the US, but refuses to believe his daughter is dead. That’s when clues lead him on a cross-country quest to try to find his daughter. While I enjoyed the story and liked the main characters, I thought some of the clues David was following to be a bit flimsy. However, the suspense was building throughout the book, and some of the scenes were absolutely chilling, especially the one happening in a North Dakota basement. I can see why Andrew Pyper has been called Canada’s scariest writer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing and creepy I bought this book on a whim because it sounded interesting. It's great. There is a subtle creepiness that pervades it and stays with you. The story flows well and I didn't want to put it down.
