Four decades after it first shook the nation, then the world, William Peter Blatty’s thrilling masterwork of faith and demonic possession returns in an even more powerful form.

    " Bought this at the airport prior to a long plane journey. Despite having seen the film on several occasions I found this to be a compelling page-turner. The writing is literate and efficient and the central themes of humanity's struggle to find faith and hope when confronted by despair are subtly but powerfully conveyed. An excellent read. "

    " Read it after having seen the film, so obviously I went in with preconceptions. Loved it though. Much scarier than I expected, and definitely one of my favourite horror books so far. "
