Publisher's Summary

Deliver Us from Evil is a diary of Ed and Lorraine Warren’s most startling investigations. First published in 1973, it is the earliest book about Ed and Lorraine Warren, who went on to become the world’s most famous demonologists and paranormal investigators.

Almost everyone has experienced one form of supernatural activity or another; some have been driven to destruction by it. This audiobook deals with the investigations and reports of supernatural activities such as the case of the demons that drove an 18-year-old girl to practice human vampirism.

Every story in this audiobook is true, only the names of people or places have been changed to protect the living and the dead. 

Don’t miss the Warrens' blockbuster films like the Conjuring series, the Annabelle series, and The Nun.

Dramatized Ghost Stories

An entertaining listen, if you want some one off ghost stories based around the Warrens. Narrator doesn't make an effort to differentiate between male characters, especially frustrating when using quotes from Ed.

The stories often have no resolution, and the endings are cheesey with the over dramatic wordings. Each chapter is an unrelated story. The Warrens are hardly mentioned and are almost made to seem ineffective in thier work.

More sensational than informative or educational about the Warrens and thier work. This piece doesn't hold a black candle to The Demonologist. Skip this one, and get that instead. It's is gold.

Not What Expected

The whole book sounded to much like a bunch of made up horror short stories made up by teenaged & put into this book.

I've enjoyed 4 of their books & the narrator. This book however seemed to be poorly written & narrator was NOT at all flattering toward the stories, but instead HELPED to make the book sound MORE like campfire tales instead of true cases.

Pure Disappointment

Before I begin, I want to acknowledge that I am a huge fan of these stories, because I think that the Warrens shine light on an issue that should be discussed so people aren't lured into darkness. Whether Ed and Lorraine's stories are fully true or not, I'll leave to everyone else to decide; I just want everyone to know that I think most of their books were done well.

To start off, this book has no solid ground to even write a synopsis here; I could cheat and see what AUDIBLE has put up, but I don't think it should be that hard and it frustrates me. I hate to say this, but this is the worst of the Warren collection, to be up front with you. There are interesting stories, but nothing is really told in a way that engages the reader. The book is all over the place and I don't know if it's because it's a different writer (J.F. Sawyer) or something else. It felt like Mr. Sawyer got pieces of certain cases, threw together bits of various stories, and then published a book to slightly titillate the reader; it just wasn't nearly as exciting or interesting as most of the other Warren books.

As far as the narration, I'm going to say that Will Damron is a fine narrator, but I still prefer Todd Haberkorn to read the books about the Warrens. I'll give him a solid B for the narration of this book.

Overall, I found the whole book to be a mess of incomplete stories. I wish I could give the book a better rating, but it featured very little from the victims AND the Warrens for that matter. I'm definitely not happy with it, but I guess it's better to read and know than to never have tried it at all. I'm going to give the book a D-, because there was one story that I found interesting enough to bump it up from an F.

Not worth a credit

While I like books like this, Amazon shouldn’t be charging a whole credit for a book of short ghost stories that have little to do with the Warrens.

Not like the others

I've listened to most of the other books about the Warren's and this one is not the same. The other books told the entire story of each topic and gave the end result, this one did not.

It was ok

I enjoy pretty much anything regarding Ed and Loraine Warren. There wasn't much detail in what they said or did to help out all the people affected by negative entities. Just when a story was getting good, it would end.

Other Warrens Books are better.

The stories were captivating but there were no resolutions for any of them. It leaves you wondering what happened to the people.

Incomplete

It seemed to me that most of the stories told in this book were never given a proper conclusion. There seems to be a lot of investigations done to a halfway point and then a abandoned. I think most of these stories are fake or at least very, very embellished.
That being said, the narrator does a good job.

Great Early Ed & Lorraine Warren book

Interesting listen, with some chilling tales. I would highly recommend, especially fans of The conjuring franchise.

Well narrated horror stories

First of all this book isn't really worth a credit, although i could never have brought myself to pay full price for it being that it is only 3hrs worth of content.

The stories themselves are really good and really well narrated, some are truly interesting and scary to listen to, others sound more like fictional horror bed times stories. Overall i really enjoyed listening to them, but it still annoys me slightly that this book is only 3hrs long and can't help shake the feeling I've been slightly robbed.
