Publisher's Summary

The senior pupils of St Peter's High School are on retreat to a secluded outdoor activity centre, coming to terms with the murder of a fellow pupil through the means you would expect: counselling, contemplation, candid discussion and even prayer...not to mention booze, drugs, clandestine liaisons and as much partying as they can get away with.
Not so far away, the commanders of a top-secret military experiment, long-since spiralled out of control, fear they may have literally unleashed the forces of Hell. Two very different worlds are on a collision course, and will clash in an earthly battle between science and the supernatural, philosophy and faith, civilisation and savagery. The bookies are offering evens.

Pandaemonium (Unabridged)

Great combination of author and narrator. Christopher Brookmyre produces yet another brilliant novel incorporating, the Catholic Chruch, US military, Demons and Glasgie schoolkids in a touching mix of humour and dreadful violence. His mastery of the collective voice of angst ridden teenagers is second to none. A great listen which will appeal to anyone who enjoys excellent writing combined with great narration.

Hard going

I love Mr Brookmyre's books, but this one didn't really work for me. The reading was a bit stumbly. I was interested in the issues and debates but alot of dialogues sounded more like lectures and the pace segued uncomfortably between the (very gruesome) action and the religious and scientific discussion. I learnt alot, but it seemed long and hard work.
