From the Nightstand: The Demonologist by Andrew Pyper

The Demonologist by Andrew Pyper never really succeeded in making me consider seriously the notion of demons being active agents for evil in the world. It was a captivating read that I had no trouble finishing, but I was never particularly scared for David Ullman and his daughter and I found Ullman’s quest to rescue his daughter to be too direct and unbelievable. He doesn’t flounder around much for clues as to what he should do. The reader does get to know quite a lot about John Milton’s Paradise Lost, which is a plus. The Demonologist can be read as an entertaining, engrossing novel but not as one that elucidates the presence and nature of evil in the world.
