There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The author provided thorough a description of each setting and event and personally interviewed the percipients. He writes with a subtle humor that enhances his search to experience a haunting for himself.
This book probably isn't going to make you sleep with the lights on, but I found it absorbing and interesting - and scary enough. It was also nicely designed (something that you can't always say about ghost books any more).
I'd also like to point out that this book is not about legends, as the first reviewer implied. It's about ghost experiences. I'm extremely choosy about the ghost books I read and this book has everything I look for in a ghost book. I hope the author writes another volume on Missouri ghosts.
