    1. ”In our sleep, pain, which cannot forget, fallsdrop by drop upon the heart until, in our own despair, against our will, come wisdomthrough the awful grace of God. --AeschylusI get a wild hair every so often and recently I decided that I needed to go on a 1970s blockbuster horror novel extravaganza tour. It all started with shifted some books around and finding this ratty well loved copy of The Exorcist that inexplicably found its way into my book collection. I’d swear it was stolen from one [...]

    2. Curiosity compels you to read this!THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILSIt was kinda hard to decide the rating on this novel. If I'd think only on the raw reading experience, I would say that it was a 3-star material.However, I had to ponder about the whole additional info and further development of characters compared with my experience with the film adaptation (which certainly is one of my favorite horror films). So, I think that the fairest rating is giving a solid 4-star rating.Certainly due all those [...]

    3. I think I'm ready. . . Help!Well, maybe I'm weird but I found the movie scarier than the book. Don't get me wrong, there are a few parts that gave me the heebie jeebies, but overall it didn't get me like the movie. Just getting the gifs for this freaking review had me all creeped out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This book is very disturbing though. Reading the stuff about people in the Black Mass and what they were doing. Uggg, no. I thought about getting a copy of the movie to watch again since I [...]

    4. A masterpieceunqualified, unadulterated and unequaled. How better to describe the definitive, 40th Anniversary edition of one of THE classic horror novels of the 20th centuryndered in audio format and narrated with passion, verve and pitch-perfect delivery by William P. Blatty himself.I’ve seen both the original and extended, remastered versions of The Exorcist several times and believe it ranks among the finest horror films ever made. Until this week, I had never read the source novel. Now th [...]

    5. Strange as it may seem, I hadn't watched the film version of ''The Exorcist'' until last summer. I know, shame on me, but you see, I thought I wouldn't be able to take it seriously. I don't believe in possessions or devils or any of these things, although I love to read about them. Of course, I knew of Blatty's novel and I was aware of the cutie little green Pazuzu-face of young Regan, but since I don't believe in the main theme of the story, I knew I wouldn't be able to appreciate the film, rig [...]

    6. THE EXORCIST is on quite a few of my favorite lists.I have read this book once before, and I own- and have watched the movie numerous times. This time I listened to the audio book.It is my favorite movie poster.It has one of my favorite "the making of" documentaries. It's in my top ten favorite movie list, and top five favorite horror movie listd now that I have listened to the audio book. Favorite audio book far.William Blatty's voice is like butterathered on the perfect horror filled bagel wit [...]

    7. لما نزل يسوع إلي الشاطئ قابله رجل من المدينة استحوذت شياطين عليه لطالما أذته وتخطفته، وكثيرًا ما كان يكبل بالقيود والسلاسل لكنه كان يكسر القيود، ولم يكن يقوي أحد علي كبحِه، سأل يسوع الشيطان قائلًا: "ما اسمك؟"، فقال: "اِسمنَا ليچون، لأننا كَثير . ****************************"وليصل إليك صراخ [...]

    8. You gotta be impressed with a book that inspires a movie that managed to turn entire generations off of pea soup.Chris MacNeil is an actress who is filming a movie in Georgetown when her young daughter Regan starts to exhibit bizarre behavior, and when medical science fails to provide any answers she turns to Father Damien Karras for blah, blah, blah, blah. There’s no point in a plot summary because we all know the set up on this one. It’s also one of those books where the film version has b [...]

    9. El exorcista es, sin lugar a dudas, el libro más terrorífico que he leído. Recordemos que el miedo es subjetivo, y mi debilidad siempre han sido las posesiones satánicas. No me esperaba el análisis psiquiátrico ni las explicaciones psicológicas para enfrentarnos a las posibles explicaciones de las "posesiones", pensé, que habría mucha religión involucrada y actos de fe, pero me encontré con razonamientos lógicos que la verdad nos dejan a todos una sensación de: ¿ok entonces, todo e [...]

    10. I’m not going to go too much into a review of this book. I’m sure most of you have seen the movie.If you found the movie scary, the book is more horrifying in some ways. I think it's because your imagination is in overdrive. There were scenes in the book that had me cringing, gasping and I was totally creeped out. Also, the description of Black Mass was disturbing and I was on Wiki to look up more information. Holy Catholic hell?!High point of the book for me: All conversations with the demo [...]

    11. What a fantastic and scary but fascinating book. The film with Linda Blair and Max Von Sydow was so far ahead of its time. I was just a young boy when the film was released and remember that there was heaps of controversy at the time. Ambulances and police were rushing to theatres because people were fainting and screaming with hysteria. In some extreme cases priests were called. I know that the film was back in theatres a while ago and my partner and I went to see it again with our nephew and n [...]

    12. Boil it all down and The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty is about faith. There is the demonic possession of Regan McNeil and the horrors that are described as a part of that invasion, the night and day distinction between a young girl and the maniacal, infernal force that changed her. Also fascinating to read is the reactions of the family and friends of the girl and the forced dynamic of this group experiencing such an outrage. Then there is the psychological questions, the detective work piec [...]

    13. “I think belief in God is not a matter of reason at all; I think it finally is a matter of love: of accepting the possibility that God could ever love us.” An unexpected and unplanned BR with The newly minted Kaz and Inej lover, The closeted lady reviewer and The guy with STILL no profile picture. Thank you guys, for leaving me in the dust such a nice time!Phew! What a crazy and scary read!What can I say about the book that’s not been said a million times over? I mean it’s been out there [...]

    14. Having recently seen a film called The Last Exorcism, I decided it was finally time to read the first exorcism, the one which made masses of people interested in demonic posessions, scared the beejesus out of readers and was made into one of the best films ever.I've seen the film several times, though I've never read the book. I always assumed that it was a cheap potboiler, heavy on shock value (who can forget the green vomit?) and thin on everything else. I was totally wrong. The Exorcist is a [...]

    15. إن كنت ستقتني الكتاب بناءًا على اسمه وعن العمل السينمائي الذي خرج منه، وأنت تمني نفسك بقراءة مرعبة كما كانت مشاهدتك للفيلم فلا أنصحك ولكن عندك أسباب أخرى تدعوك لإقنتاء هذا النص الكلاسيكي الرائع منها أولاً : الترجمة ولو تعرف كم تعني لي الكثير ! فَلَو انتظرت ترجمة هذا النص مثلي [...]

    16. This is a really chilling and frightening story.There is nothing more powerful and engrossing than a story about a persons battle with their state of mind and Demons. In this frightening story you have a mother and her 12 year old daughters bond shaken, faced with a state of mayhem immersed in a struggle for survival and triumph over adversity, you just feel for them immensely and love for their solitude to prevail. The Jesuit priest also had a love for his deceased mother and guilt of not putti [...]

    17. The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty was released in 1971, we've all seen the subsequent film released in 1973, you might have read the book but an altogether different experience is guaranteed to scare the pants off you with the audiobook. Narrated by the author who won an Oscar for best writing/screenplay based on material from another medium for the Exorcist and I have to say this is easily the best production and performance from any audiobook that I've listened to. Powerfully gripping, a s [...]

    18. This is my Book Of the Month- February 2017, with GR group- Horror Aficionados.I love watching horror movies and enjoy reading horror books even more. In horror genre, 'Ghost Stories' are my favorite genre and this book just 'Fit to a T'.Exorcist is one of the few horror movies that actually shocked and horrified me. And I was really excited to read the original book on which this cult classic was based. If you found the movie scary, the book is grosser and more horrifying in some ways.Maybe it' [...]

    19. Satanic Panic in South Africa has its very own entry.Why? Because South Africans are notorious for finding evil under every stone. Toys, energy drinks, fantasy books and TV, certain sweets, music, films…. all are tools of the devil. It’s a free for all.Why is this relevant to this review?Satanic Panic was at its peak in the 80s, when I was young, and the one Horror Film we were absolutely forbidden to watch was The Exorcist. Needless to say, it was one of the first we sought to get a hold o [...]

    20. on oct 26th 1987, an english professor bought this book in shanghai foreign book store at the price of rmb 6, as much as nearly rmb 200 this day i guesslast week i paid him rmb 100 for this book. the jacket is long gone, the bounding parched and cracked, but the paper is well preserved, better than i imagine, should be a nice bargainnow i'm the ultimate owner of it, no jacket, sorry, no pix but there's the first taiwanese edition, sept. 1974 :D

    21. Such a classic. The writing is like popcorn, dialogue is realistic, the characters are likable while having unlikable characteristics, and there's plenty of moments that will either get under your skin or turn your stomach altogether (yes that scene). Highly recommended!

    22. The book started out slow and for the first half of the book there was no real "scare" factor. Most of the book was no one believing that the daughter Ragan was possessed, but instead that she just had some psychological problems which were causing her transformation of an innocent girl to a stark raving lunatic. Most of the book was about the psycharists that were treating her and their thoughts about what was causing her mental illness. The book finally started picking up pace with more things [...]

    23. Not a genre I have explored before so there is nothing to compare this with, still I liked the book overall. The characters are good and the writing is even better. Thankfully I watched the movie ages ago, so i didn't remember anything at all, which probably acted as an added advantage. I felt it wasn’t as scary as I had expected, but definitely the horror element was managed quite well throughout the book.There was a time around the middle when I was feeling all GYANI because of the extra neu [...]

    24. A very addictive read, with some strong creepy scenes and dialogs. I swear, while reading this I was watching the movie in my head, the scariest parts are very similar in the book and some descriptions about the Black Mass where, simply put, disturbing. If that's what you're looking for, go ahead. Highly recommended, it is classic terror.No tengo ni idea de como se me cruzo por la cabeza la idea de leer esto, pero aqui estoy. LolEl libro El Exorcista, es justamente lo que la pelicula es; terror [...]

    25. Finally, the last book I read in 2015. All caught up now.Pssst You've read four books this year, so, like, you're, you know, still behindFUCK!Anyballs, here we are, decades after this book was released and the movie adaptation gave baby boomers nightmares. I've never been a fan of books wherein faith beats the baddie. Seems the fallback method for lazy horror authors. I mean, why come up with your own means of annihilating the monster when you have all this religion laying around? Of course, in [...]

    26. What a thrilling, frightening ride!I first read the Exorcist in 1974 when I was only twelve years old. At that time the film had already hit the theaters and for those who lived during that era you will remember what a huge controversy the movie caused. My mother would not allow me to see the movie but she gave me the okay to read the book. The Exorcist has always held a special place in my heart because it is what I consider to be the first adult novel I ever read. I remember reading at night w [...]

    27. Chris McNeill es una célebre actriz de cine que vine en la ciudad de Georgetown junto a su amiga Sharon, dos criados y su pequeña hija Regan, con quien lleva una relación muy afectiva, ella lo es todo para su madre. Su hija es una jovencita muy inocente, apegada a Chris como nadie, de esas personas que son "amor puro", sin ningún tipo de maldad, una niña ejemplar. Un día, mientras su madre hacía algunas tareas en su hogar, descubre en el sótano un tablero Ouija. Regan le menciona que ell [...]

    28. It's been 40 + years since the release of the book and movie, and I never read the book. I thought now would be a good time to take it on. I must admit to having second thoughts as I began reading "The Exorcist" and at one point I thought I would put it away. I was terrified. But the story was so well written and having seen where some of the movie was filmed, I kept reading. I am so glad I did. This is a powerful story inspired by an actual exorcism that took place in the 1940's. The real demon [...]
