Gripping, Exciting, Occult


What was one of the most memorable moments of The Devil Rides Out?

The night time in the library when the evil forces try to take Simon.


What about Nick Mercer’s performance did you like?

Brilliant reader. The characters were clearly defined by his reading and amazingly consistent.


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was fascinated by the period drama aspect of the story, the aspects of occult and the pace and clarity of the writing.


Any additional comments?

I usually prefer modern crime or Agatha Christie but fancied something a little different. This was superbly written and so well read as to be a tour de force. Some aspects are a little too far fetched but that in part is the joy of the occult.

A Good Listen

This 1930`s horror story still has the power to chill. Dennis Wheatley is an excellent storyteller and despite careful explanations of occult practices, well researched by the author, one`s attention is always engaged and the adventure enjoyed. I first read this book in the late 40`s. It was a good read then and is a good listen now.
