Summary

The shocking true case of demonic possession from the reporters who first covered it in the Boston Herald. The case was discussed and you can watch the real exorcism footage in the blockbuster horror film The Conjuring.

When terrifying, bizarre things kept happening to a hard-working Massachusetts farmer, he did what anyone would do. First, he went to the local police chief. Then he went to his priest. And then he went to Ed and Lorraine Warren, the world's most famous demonologists, who investigated the Amityville horror and other terrifying cases of demonic possession. It was the Warrens who called in one of America's most renowned exorcists, Bishop Robert McKenna. What they all experienced is described in this extraordinary book. Absolutely terrifying. Absolutely true.

Liked it

Absolutely spellbinding, I really got absorbed by it. I am curious though about what 'Phil forced his son frenchie' to do as a child in the barn.
Maybe I missed the explanation but would have helped explain how the father got possessed.
Brilliant story and well narrated

excellent listen

I enjoyed this story. I liked how they provided ample back story to the main characters. the narrator was different from the other Warren books I've read but he did a good job with it

ending is kind of random

good story. narrator kept it interesting but the only flaw was the ending didn't really tie it up and seemed to pull from a differnt angle while it still kept with the story there was no mention of it till the very end . And if it had been played upon during the rest of the book it may have helped some of the characters narrative.

Was he possessed ?

I liked the story but the thing is that the father of Frenchie seems to be a frustrated and narcissistic father instead of possessed however they claim the the demon was transpassed from his father to him, I think it's more like repeated patrons

Very riveting, very intense story!

What made the experience of listening to Satan's Harvest the most enjoyable?

This book was very well written, and I loved the detailed background story of young Maurice. It gave the reader a very intimate look inside his troubled mind.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I liked that it wasn't just some cheesy monster story, but a realistic look into the views of everyone who had witnessed different events.

An....Okay Warren Story...

INITIAL THOUGHTS:

I still like to believe that the Warren stories are true; mind you, I do believe that this CAN happen to people, but I feel like the Warrens have made a career out of mainstreaming exorcisms. I understand that these things happen, but the Warrens seem to have profited from mental illness in SOME instances.

Now, I feel like some people are going to get mad at me for this view, which I never had before. The Warrens always explained that they don't take any money besides travel and such, but they have used these instances (where SOME have taken back their claims of being possessed or, in some instances, admitted to faking everything). I am NOT saying that this doesn't happen OR that the Warrens having done good, but I did start to doubt what some of the claims were that I've read in the Warren books.

SUMMARY:

Satan's Harvest follows the life of Maurice Theriault and his awful childhood as the oldest son of Phil Theriault. While Maurice loved his mother, Phil was an abusive, awful man, who beat and, although it wasn't directly explained, introduced Maurice at the age of thirteen to something wrong and something he knew he shouldn't be doing. After a particularly hard day, Maurice was heard screaming the words, "I'd rather work for the devil than for you!" over and over again. From that moment on, seemingly good things started to happen, but they were definitely not normal; later on as an adult, Maurice said, after doing a fete impossible for any one man, that he'd just "called on the spirits to help him" and that he'd "been doing it all his life." Ed and Lorraine Warren were called in after a little while when the local priest realized that this man was going to need more than prayers to free him from the grasp of whatever was afflicting him.

For weeks, they waited for the church to give approval for an exorcist, the local sheriff continued to make inquiries to put Maurice behind bars. Everything seemed be working against Maurice and his wife, Nancy. It took weeks and, from the time the first MAJOR instances happened, years for Maurice to receive some kind of help from the church.

REVIEW:

Satan's Harvest was actually one of the stories that I was most excited to hear about. I know I'd heard Maurice's name mentioned in other stories and his seemed so interesting. I will say that I found Maurice's story to be a little less than what I expected. I feel like the author of this particular installment wasn't as invested in the story. A lot of it seemed lazy and I was really looking forward to it.

As far as the narrator Will Damron is concerned and from the few novels I've heard him read, he is a SOLID narrative with a great gift. In 'Satan's Harvest,' he failed to inspire, terrorize, or even engage me in any way. I want to give him the benefit of the doubt, but this had, at least in some ways, a good story. I think he could've done so much better. Granted, I love Todd Haberkorn, who read the Warren Books 1-4. He's so good at these books, as well as others. I guess I'm comparing, but when you have similar stories, one is most likely going to be much better. While I normally give Mr. Haberkorn an A, I'm, unfortunately, going to have to give Mr. Damron a B. In other books, he's amazing, but he fell a little flat in this one for me.

Overall, for this installment, I'll give it a B-. It had redeeming qualities, but it was, in no way, as comparable as Gerard Brittle's 'The Demonologist.' Despite this, it is an entertaining read. I wouldn't advise anyone against it, but just know that there are better books out there. If you have a choice between 'Satan's Harvest' and 'The Demonologist," choose the latter, please!
