Format: Paperback
I found this book a very interesting starting point for getting into stories of the paranormal. It was also a quick read. I read it over the weekend. Very good.

I have not read this book entirely, but was initially very interested in it. I started reading through it at the local B&N when I came upon a page where he writes about sightings of small gnomes in Argentina, and mentions amateur video taken by some teens of a gnome crossing a street.

*sigh* I know what video he's talking about. It's a viral video created by Travelocity. Their mascot is a gnome who travels the globe. If THAT somehow got past the author, I can't trust what other mistakes might be in the rest of the book.

Format: Paperback
The Dead Roam the Earth: True Stories of the Paranormal from Around the World by Alasdair Wickham includes tales of ghosts, monsters, poltergeists, witchcraft, and other paranormal phenomenon. While this may be categorized as a novel, it's more of a reference text, and it would be best enjoyed when one is looking for information about these subjects, rather than a fictional text. Whether or not the reader believes in the supernatural, the book presents information in a format that makes it easy to pick up and put down without losing your place.

It should be noted that some of the material has been collected in other forms, such as sections on curses and film sets, which anyone watching late night television has seen around Halloween. In addition, it's hard to draw conclusions about the supernatural, especially when there are only a few accounts of events, and to make snap judgements comes across as reaching for straws at times.

There's no denying that there are many things in this world that are difficult to explain, and if a reader is seeking a book that offers alternative explanations, they will find something of interest in this book. Just don't accept it as truth without doing research on it first.

(Reviewed for A Book Obsession..)
