There's nothing I enjoy more than a book about true ghost experiences, especially when they're set in one specific area. This one has lots of Maine history, the stories are well written, and a couple of them (The Demon Family in particular) made my hair stand on end.
I really enjoyed this one. Excellent!

A fast, easy read of some interesting "true cases" of ghosts, haunted houses, and possessed relics and antiques. I particularly enjoyed the tales of the terrifying fog of Jonesboro, the tragedy inside the haunted house in Dennysville, and tales surrounding the bad little water falls of Machias. The author also writes of the former Victorian-styled Robinson House in East Machias and "America's most famous ghost," Nelly Butler. My favorite was the creepy and fascinating curse of "The Mask of Bali," about the unfortunate mishaps that befall the owners of an imported carved wooden mask.

This book was well-written, scary, and nicely designed.

At first I was afraid it was going to be one of those dreaded cop-out "people say"-type ghost books, but most of the stories that seemed to begin that way did quickly bring in personally investigated contemporary accounts, which is something I have never seen any other author do, even though I have read hundreds of ghost books.

I recommend this book for anyone who enjoys readings personally investigated true ghost story accounts.

I bought this book to read aloud to my fellow campers on our trip to Maine. It was fun to read and each story ended with a pondering session by all who had participated. What we liked best about the book was its "believability" These are old, familiar tales to those who live "down east" and so, we had much to chew on and wonder. Personally, I didn't feel they were scary enough. Maybe that was good for the kids that were with us but I was hoping for something truly spooky like the great master of haunted tales - Hans Holzer.. but maybe that's a different genre altogether. The book promises ghostly tales, and that it delivers.

If you love a good ghost story, this book ought to be fun for you... especially if you are from Maine. You will be familiar with these haunted places, and will enjoy how the author actually interviews real people to gather the details of a story. It is real folklore. Real word by mouth, and sometimes he finds written sources to back that up! My only pet peeve is that he calls Black Woods Road "Black's Woods Road". I love that road, and it does kind of put off a spooky energy. My husband now drives that road in fear! Especially on those foggy days and nights!

The beautiful state of Maine, so pristine and classically New England. Down East brings to mind crisp air, rocky shoreline, clam bakes, and sea-faring towns. Majestic lighthouses stand watch over rough coastline. And ghosts seem to loom around every corner. Author Marcus LiBrizzi gives us a look at another side of this historic state. Folklore has always been a part of the rich heritage of Maine, but is there any credibility to local legend and lore? Well, sometimes, where there's smoke, there's fire.

Mr. LiBrizzi has assembled his own ghost-hunting team who set forth seeking regional, contemporary tales as witnessed by local residents. As I know from experience, mention ghosts, and people you'd never expect come out of the woodwork, eager to tell their own stories. The folks Down East are no exception. The team found plenty of great spooky, chilling tales.

Many classic legends have some basis in fact, although the exact details may be long lost. More impressive than simply researching these legends, the author has found first-hand accounts from people who can attest to having had encounters with these legendary specters themselves, with their own two eyes. Consider: It is rumored that a young woman haunts a desolate stretch of Route 182, asking for a ride to Bar Harbor. She has been encountered recently in two separate instances by people traveling that stretch of road at night. It has been said that the mysterious fog that rolls in over Fort Sullivan, Eastport, sweeps in with it the forlorn image of a long-ago soldier standing at attention, his musket by his side. He was witnessed several times by a husband and wife who live nearby. Recently, an invisible phantom left fresh footprints in the sand behind two women who walked alone on a deserted beach.

I really enjoyed this book... the author has a good sense of humor & the book was an entertaining read. I'll hang on to this one for future reference & I have bought another book by this author already, which I am looking forward to reading by the fireplace on a cold, snowy, cozy day.
