    1. Think The Phantom Tollbooth crossed with Johannes Cabal The Necromancer. Literate, dark humor, a straightforward plot interrupted with sidebars, friendship and the kind of world where the very worse thing is the absence of anything. This time when the Hadron Collider is turned on, “the scientists had done a great deal of work to ensure that the whole portal to Hell business would never, ever happen again. Promise. Pinkie promise. Pinkie promise with sugar on top.” Mrs. Abernathy intends to u [...]

    2. Good but not as good as the first book in the series. There was a lot of explanation in this one, a lot of scene setting, and not as much action. Still there was a great deal of humour which may or may not appeal to the target demographic of children! I think much of it was very adult humour and I enjoyed it a lot:)Very light, very readable and generally just good fun. Be aware though that I am a long time John Connolly fan and would probably give his shopping lists good ratings:)

    3. In the preceding novel, The Gates, Samuel Johnson and his beloved dog, Boswell, managed to stop the invasion of Earth from the mighty forces of Hell. The defeated leader of Satan's army, Mrs. Abernathy (a sexless demon with a fondness for women's clothing), is desperately trying to get back into the good graces of The Great Malevolence while also planning her eventual revenge on the young boy and his meddling dog.Despite Connolly leaving the ending of the first book pretty open ended for a poten [...]

    4. Samuel's success at closing the gate to Hell didn't leave him quite in the position one would hope for. Instead of being hailed a conquering hero for sussing out the plot and rallying people to the cause, they quietly believe he bears some responsibility. They have done all they can to forget that demons descended on Biddlecombe. When they see Samuel, however, they remember. This makes him partially to blame in their thoughts. If you have not read 'The Gates' it's the wonderful start to the tale [...]

    5. The following message is brought to you by Spiggit's Old Peculiar. Now proven to cause only TEMPORARY blindness. Ask for Spiggit's - The Beer with the Biohazard Symbol!Yay! Mrs. Abernathy is back! Her teeth are still sharp and pointy, her tentacles still drip with slime, and she burns with a passion to destroy the one who kept her from taking over the earth for her master, The Great Malevolence.After a failed attempt to open a doorway from Hell using that Large Hadron Collider thingy, the crew o [...]

    6. Samuel Johnson, they young boy who was the hero of The Gates, returns in this follow-up story. The arch-demon from Hell, Mrs. Abernathy, is nursing a grudge and wants revenge against Samuel and his dog Boswell. Naturally things get out-of-hand and four truculent dwarves also get involved. This is fun, funny stuff complete with footnotes and can be read very quickly. Still, The Gates is much better. Still again, I'd read a third installment in a heartbeat.

    7. Excellent follow up from The Gates. Sam & Boswell still have it to survive Hell and to get out of the clutches of death sort of speak. Loved this and looking forward to the last book in this trilogy.

    9. This continuation of the story begun in John Connolly's The Gates finds young Samuel Johnson and his dachshund, Boswell, once again fighting the legions of hell. This time, Samuel and Boswell have been pulled into hell itself by the demon Ba'al, who now lives as Mrs. Abernathy (having taken a liking to doilies, flowers and kittens while living as a woman on earth in the previous book).Mrs. Abernathy has fallen out of favour after having her plans thwarted by Samuel and his friend, the demon Nurd [...]

    10. I know these are considered YA but I really have reservations about giving these to a very young person. As I often do I suggest that parents read this first. Then they can decide if the8ir "youth" is mature enough for the book.Okay that said, this is a humorous book. I don't think I appreciated as much as I should have as I was a bit depressed. There are some very funny sections here. (As in the first book, the footnotes are among the funniest parts).So, follow up to the attempted invasion of e [...]

    11. A second and equally terrific entry in this series. Frankly I like the British title better:Hell's Bells.(Apparently the publishing world doesn't think the fragile American reading audience can handle a book with 'hell' in the title )Helluva read! yeah, couldn't stop myself from that one

    12. The Infernals: A Samuel Johnson Tale is the second in a series of tales aimed at what I guess is the Young Adult audience. Well, I'm an old adult [64 years young] and I enjoyed the Hell out of this book. It probably would help if you read the first volume - The Gates - because, thankfully, many of the characters are back. In this outing Samuel and his dachshund Boswell are pulled into Hell by Mrs. Abernathy, who also manages to snag two police officers, an ice cream man and his truck and four an [...]

    13. 2.5 - I enjoyed The Gates and was hoping for improvement in the sequel but was disappointed. Connolly is a highly imaginative and skilled author but this book was just okay - it wandered around too much. I did appreciate the idea of revamping Dante's journey through Hell for a young boy - and I still love the main character Samuel Johnson and his dog Boswell.I listened to the audio edition of The Gates and The Infernals and would recommend both for a fun and quick distraction type read. The narr [...]

    14. Brilliant sequel to The Gates, this time following Samuel Johnson as he gets sucked into Hell by the evil Mrs. Abernathy along with four elves, two policemen and an ice-cream truck driver. Very funny and plenty of intense moments, with the usual pitch-perfect writing of Connolly. Looking forward to the next one. Highly recommended.

    15. Suka.Cerita dan tokohnya benar-benar ditulis dengan jenius nih.Tokoh utama manusiawi dan setani (bahasa apa ini) banget. Bahkan sifat-sifatnya juga.Samuel memang anak kecil, bukan anak yang dipaksa dewasa dan punya kemampuan super.Tokoh yang aku kira nggak penting di buku satu, ternyata berguna di buku dua.Suka deh pokoknya.

    16. I think we can thank JK Rowling for making the youth literature market a viable option for authors by proving that kids will buy books, especially ones that tell a compelling story that doesn’t stoop to the lowest commoner denominator for laughs. Following the path of great mystery writers like John Grisham and Carl Hiassen, John Connolly has entered the market with the intrepid Samuel Johnson and his ever faithful dachshund Boswell as they battle the forces of evil embodied in cranky Mrs. Abe [...]

    17. The Hell warming story of a boy named Samuel and his Dachshund Boswell. Both are trapped in purgatory located in another dimension which happens to be Hell. Samuel ends up in a rather hilarious segment of perdition entitled The Mountain Of Despair which happens to be ruled by the one and only The Great Malevolence. In recent history Samuel and Boswell foiled plans that were constructed by the evil Mrs. Abernathy and her cohorts of demons. Now she has learned to require an enormous amount of ener [...]

    18. 3 StarsThe Infernals, book number two in the Samuel Johnson vs. the Devil series is a great continuation to started in The Gates. A young boy named Samuel and his faithful Dachshund Boswell must once again fight to keep the horde of Hell from invading our home.This book is different from the first in many regards. It takes place almost exclusively in Hell. There is very little character development. The cast is much smaller. The world a bit bleaker. It is also filled with some cool demons. Scary [...]

    19. “The Infernals” by John Connolly, published by Atria Books.Category – Fantasy/Science FictionThis book is an excellent change of pace for the adult reader and is definitely a great read for those who like Young Adult books.I would suggest that you read John Connolly’s “The Book of Lost Things”, and the first in this series, “The Gates” before you read “The Infernals”.If you have read “The Gates” you will remember that young Samuel Johnson and his dachshund, Boswell, becam [...]

    20. I'd given the first book in this series (The Gates) three stars and concluded that it was a fun, fluffy diversion from Connolly's Charlie Parker books. I'd picked this sequel up at the library not being entirely committed to it, but now I'm glad that I read it. It was a lot of fun and very clever, and I enjoyed that all of the footnotes were science-y (in keeping with the theme of the Large Hadron Collider being responsible for Samuel Johnson's misadventures, I suppose). Overall, The Infernals w [...]

    21. GREAT fun. If possible, better than the first book. Highly recommended.

    22. The humor continues as Samuel, Boswell and others (most notably four outrageously funny dwarfs) are transported to Hell and have to find their way home. Just remember that Hell is not a nice place to be. Cheers with a Spiggit's Old Peculiar!

    24. Blake's ReviewsThe Infernals by John Connolly (aka Hell's Bells Samuel Johnson vs the Devil Round II)So, I was not recommended to read this book by anyone. If you must know, I was at Book-a-Million, browsing through the bargain bin. You know, the unloved books that all seem to be a combination of worn and pink? I don't know why they are pink, all I know is that they areWell, I did not know this at the time, but it was the second book in a series (The Gates will be one of my next reviews, as I am [...]

    25. Funnier than any YA novel in recent memory. Just because it's for preteens doesn't mean you won't love it too.

    26. I remember when I first read The Gates. I was thoroughly delighted by its unique brand of humorous horror, completely charmed by its brave hero and his lovely little dog. At the time, I didn't realize it was the first of a series. It was certainly strong enough to stand alone.Looking back, it seems this is the opposite of First Book Syndrome. While becoming reacquainted with Samuel, Boswell, and Nurd was a pleasure, I'm not entirely confident that we needed the story to continue. But since we we [...]

    27. The Infernals is a surreal adventure billed as YA, and it reads well that way in many aspects. The multiple-plotline style is said (by writing experts) to be difficult for YA readers to follow or appreciate, which could be distracting to readers who prefer a story to remain sharply focused on the protagonist.This is BOOK TWO of a series. I did not realize this when I picked it from the library shelf, but the expertise of the author in cluing in a reader to book one was well-handled and didn't in [...]

    28. Segunda aventura de Samuel Johnson. Han pasado unos meses desde la acción de "Las puertas del infierno" y Samuel vive tranquilo en su ciudad con su perrito Boswell, su madre y las apariciones de la Sra. Abernathy en los charcos de agua u otras superficies reflectantes de vez en cuando. Pero ya se sabe que la tranquilidad en los buenos libros no dura para siempre y menos cuando tenemos un colisionador de partículas con tendencia a abrir caminos hacia otras dimensiones de nuevo en funcionamiento [...]

    29. Samuel Johnson has a problem. He asked a post box out. It didn't answer.But on the plus side, he still has his faithful Boswell, and he's alive.But, on the negative side, he is alive in Hell.But there is a silver lining. He and Boswell are not alone in Hell. There are two police officers (bobbies), Dan the Ice Cream Man (and his truck), and four elves . . er dwarfs . . . er midgets . . . er vertically challenged men.Actually, the last four are homicidal manics who scare boy bands. (Honestly, wha [...]

    30. This is a YA book, but very, very funny. John Connolly's hero is Samuel Johnson and his dog Boswell, whom have upset Mrs. Abernathy, one of Hell's most fearsome demons in a most profound way. Just the names of the boy and the dog, made me chuckle right away, never mind that one of the locations is Shirley Jackson street, heheh. Connolly is extremely fond of footnotes which can be found liberally peppered throughout the book. Do not skip over them, as they are some of the funniest parts of the bo [...]
