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. Raw and profane, shocking and blood-chilling, it remains a modern parable of good and evil and perhaps the most terrifying novel ever written.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Jonah Olivo | 11/10/2016

    " If you're a fan of the 1974 film, then this is an outstanding book in my opinion! The author wrote the film's script and this book was read by the author also, which makes it so riveting hour by hour because he has a good sounding voice. With your vivid imagination and the great narrative, this audio book version makes that wonderful movie seem like a good frozen TV dinner in comparison. Not to say the film is bad, especial the great director's cut edition is so good, but it's as though a new super extended version of the movie is playing in your head as he reads to you. All the extra scenes and nuances bring so much more beautiful color, chills and detail to that work of art. "

    " Completely awesome. Just like the movie. One of my all time favorite horror books. Actually much better than the movie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Tracy | 2/4/2014

    " Not as scary as it was the last time I read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Matt | 1/30/2014

    " 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. "
