This isn’t so much of a horror story but a cheap way for a devout Catholic writer to use AJHD-K to spoon feed us religious claptrap and pooh-pooh all that “science crap”. Be the first to discover new talent! I was BR’ing it with Ben 2. Want to know what I know about science? Alot of the enjoyment in reading this book, was how you find things out a little bit at a time, just when you think things are going in one direction, you will find yourself then pulled in another direction.

But it was all so confusing, such a mess the Creator made man to know right from wrong, to feel outrage at all that was monstrous and evil; yet the scheme of creation itself was outrageous. The book begins and ends with a mention of ‘Hurrah for Karamazov! In this book, however, he is the focal point of the entire narrative.

Legion by William Peter Blatty

The protagonist might well be going through some kind of brain malignancy, and Blatty describes some odd neural phenomena as well as introducing the necessary supernatural stuff.


This book was very hard to follow; between the detective’s nonsense ramblings and the demons ramblings. Share this Rating Title: I’m not wasting more time here. This book left me bored and scratching my head, I felt a disconnect with the characters, especially the dying neurologist and his experiments with EVP and the sudden appearance of his “double”.

The reason for these murders is because the long dead killer, the Gemini killer, has daddy issues and wants revenge and the evil force has scores to settle. Mutilations performed at these crime scenes suggest a serial killer from years before, who had been previously shot and presumed dead although the body had never been recovered. The name calling, the tone of his voice when he talks to her, warmth feeling cloaked me.

Para terminar dejo un fragmento de uno de los varios momentos mas OMG a mi parecer. Then after this beauteous look at the rapture of Christ oh did I mention Kinderman was a Jew?

Of course, the novel is more in depth and boasts more characters.

He wrote the novel The Exorcist and the subsequent screenplay version for which he won an Academy Award.

I will most likely read both of these Blatty novels again…soon. I found it interesting and compelling, but the word ‘entertainment’ never sprang to mind. He concealed the nature of his novel, making it a mysteryand has these long musing sections about Kinderman, questionning the nature of God.

There’s almost a Rust Cohle-esque feel to Ki This is more or less a follow up to The Exorcist, and it’s actually a great deal better than The Exorcist. Siblings are cruel like that and my brother? Some characters carry over, but this is pretty much a standalone, with its own points to make. This book started off when Kinderman was called in to solve who killed a 12 year old mute black kid that delivers newspapers.


William Peter Blatty ‘Legion’ Review

I wonder how the ending was different? It has some terrifying b,atty, incl A polished supernatural mystery with an easy reading style that keep lfgion pages turning. AJHD-K finally traces it back to a hospital and finds that the demon from the first book Pazuzu if I recall made a deal with the Gemeni killer’s soul.

I do not want to be wholly negative about this piece, it’s just disappointing if you’re expecting what’s promised on the cover.

Oct 22, Missy blahty rated it it was amazing. I guess such a topic isn’t for everyone, but you can enjoy both The Exorcist and Legion even if that’s not your nlatty.

Mar 14, Levi Walls rated it really liked it. It’s written strongly and laced with undertones of an exhausted father who’s children just refuse to see the light, despite all of the “facts” to the contrary.

I love the second one too. But, look, because I adore you, I’ll let this slide legin willing to put Blatty and Legion in the rearview mirror.
