Very fun concept that didn't translate into a very fun book. ( )

Don't really know how to rate this one, I sincerely expected much more about this book. I mean, I liked the argument but not the way it is told. ( )

Loved it. I thought it was quite innovative. ( )

The first 50 pages are the "trapped demon" just telling you to burn the book, as if having a conversation. When it stops "talking" to you, and actually tells a story, it's good but the banter in between actual story telling is annoying and pointless.

The book itself is beautiful, with "aged" pages and block type print. Too bad more work went into presentation than the content. ( )

Book description
You hold in your hands not a book at all, but a terrifying embodiment of purest evil. Can you feel the electric tingle in your fingers as you are absorbed by the demon Jakabok's tale of his unintentional ascent from the depths of the Inferno? Do you sense the cold dread worming its way into your bloodstream, your sinews, the marrow of your bones as you read more deeply into his earthly education and unspeakable acts? The filth you now grasp has been waiting patiently for you for nearly six hundred years. And now, before you are completely in its thrall, you would do well to follow the foul creature's admonition and destroy this abomination of ink and paper before you turn a single leaf and are lost forever.



You have been warned.
