Summary

A classic of the horror genre, Dennis Wheatley’s The Devil Rides Out pits the powers of good against the forces of evil as the Duc de Richelieu wrestles for the soul of his friend with the charming but deadly Satanist, Mocata. Mocata has the power to summon the forces of darkness and - as the Duc and his friends will find - is willing to call upon ever-increasing horror until thundering hooves herald the arrival of the Devil Himself. The book was also made into a classic cult horror film in 1968, starring Christopher Lee and Charles Gray.

Something different

If you could sum up The Devil Rides Out in three words, what would they be?

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 Great Listen

Would you listen to The Devil Rides Out again? Why?

Yes. I enjoy the atmosphere of the book and the slow build of suspense. In fact, I've listened to it several times. The first time I heard it was years ago as a public library check out. I was happy to find it at audible.

Have you listened to any of Nick Mercer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I haven't.

If you could rename The Devil Rides Out, what would you call it?

The Horror Within.

Any additional comments?

This is a book that can be revisit multiple times and not lose its appeal. Bravo

classic but dated

A very enjoyable listen to a book I had trouble slogging through on paper. This book is the basis of the wonderful Hammer film of the same name. A bit uneven at times, but a fun and enjoyable romp through the terrifying world of Wheatley's imagined Satanic cult conspiracy.
