This year, I'm giving this book to several of my friends as Halloween gifts.

I couldn't put this book down, and I read most of it in one night (I was up until two in the morning, and didn't want to go to sleep because I was so creeped out!).

I would recommend this book for anyone interested in reading about paranormal experiences.

I just finished reading this book for the second time, and I feel compelled to write a review. I purchased THE GHOST NEXT DOOR several months ago and devoured it within the first few days I had it. I really enjoyed it.
One night, recently, the weather was nasty outside and I was home alone. I was in the mood for some ghost stories, so I pulled THE GHOST NEXT DOOR off the shelf and made myself comfy in my Lazyboy. It was just as good the second time around! I found myself continuing to read through it over the next few days, until I had finished it once again.
This book does something not many books of its kind can lay claim to: It holds my interest from cover to cover. Maybe it's the author's wonderful writing style; maybe it's the fact that the stories are new and original; maybe it's because the book describes ghostly activity as experienced by ordinary people; heck, maybe it's the oh-so-creepy picture on the cover of the book! The fact is that it's all of these things that make this book so eerily entertaining.
I look forward eagerly to Mr. Morris' next book. Until then, I'll probably read this one a few more times!

I have a fairly extensive collection of books on true ghost experiences, and The Ghost Next Door is written just the way I like them. The author prefaces each story with some interesting (and sometimes eerie) commentary. He wraps each of them up with commentary, as well. I also like that the stories come straight from the source--the person who actually had the encounter with a ghost. I couldn't put this book down, and I read most of it in one night (I was up until two in the morning, and didn't want to go to sleep because I was so creeped out!). If you're interested in ghosts and paranormal phenomena, this book is a must-have!

Having been involved in the paranormal for many years, I have picked up, flipped through and subsequently replaced many books that have been written on this subject. I am not a regular reader of books; I do enjoy them, but I rarely have enough spare time to sit down and really get into them. I do own many ghost books, most of which have to do with famous buildings that house famous ghosts. The accounts tend to read more like local urban myths, however, and I rarely read them properly but refer back to them if I ever need to review information on a particular location.
A coworker handed me "The Ghost Next Door" and asked me to write a review of it. As soon as the book landed in my hands, I flipped it over to read the back cover. I had only to read the first paragraph to understand how interesting this book was going to be...
I'd made a decision before arriving home that I WOULD find the time to read this book and write a short review--but I also decided to be honest and not write a great review simply to be nice to the author. I was so keen by the time I got home that, despite the hour being late and myself tired, I jumped onto the sofa and kicked off my shoes, thinking, "I shall just read a few pages to see what it's about..."
The author's introduction was excellent, and I found myself in agreement with many of his theories and ideas. I also found myself launching straight into the first story...then the second. I was captivated, only eventually closing the book due to a desperate need for sleep, which was definitely not brought about by the book itself! I was actually rather surprised at how much of the book I'd already read. As I lay in bed drifting off to sleep, I thought about the book and the stories within it; these were REAL stories from everyday people.

25 of 26 people found the following review helpful By Tim Janson HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on April 7, 2005
Format: Paperback
It's always interesting to read real-life accounts of people who've had encounters with spirits. Real, everyday people, not some celebrity has-been on some half-baked mediums show, trying to shill a book or something. And although the various shows that pop up on the History Channel and Travel Channel, there's still something not quite as scary when actors are used to re-create an encounter. That's why this book is so satisfying and so downright chilling to read. The encounters are from just everyday people like you and me. Some are rather humorous and some downright unsettlingly scary.

Author Mark Alan Morris pens these stories like a master craftsmen. You'll not only find traditional haunted house hauntings but hauntings in Inns, battlefields, and in cemetary's as well. I'm not bother by some reviewers complaints that the author didn't try to authenticate these stories. I don't think that was what the book is about. These people seem to be speaking form their hearts and directly to the readers. Morris adds a postscript to the stories that wraps them up fairly neatly. This is a great one for reading on those dark and stormy nights or telling a few tales around Halloween. Great stuff!

I ordered this book after a friend recommended it. I'm glad I did, because I enjoyed it very much. The book just happened to arrive on a day when it was raining, cold and windy outside. I curled up in front of a roaring fire and read most of this book in one evening. Very eerie reading, indeed! It had me glancing around the room as I was reading.
I've read a lot of true ghost story books, but I've never read about the particular hauntings in this book, which is great. New, original stories are always a welcome find. I also love the way this author writes. Very easy to read, and very atmospheric. He sets the mood quite well.
I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in ghosts or likes to be creeped out. I give it five stars!
