The text deals with ghosts and supernatural events on the "Queen Mary", of which I am skeptical. Nothing in the book made a convert of me, nor did I see any ghosts in my most recent three day stay onboard the "Queen Mary". The most intriguing parts of the book concern John Pedder, a young member of the crew crushed to death in watertight door number 13. Perhaps because his story was so compelling I found it the most interesting, and certainly he does seem to be one of the most popular ghosts sighted.
I'm not sorry that I bought the book, but be advised it is a very small volume, and will not take very long to read. The format gives the background of the ship and ghost stories and then lists numerous sightings from a variety of people. The stories range from the easily explained to more otherworldly, but page after page of them makes for tedious reading. There are quite a few grammatical errors that should have been caught in proofreading, and an 11 page long list of "Recommended Reading" which pads the length of the book enormously. There are also "Tips For Releasing a Troublesome Spirit," which is definitely only for the most devout of paranormal believers.
I think the authors and people interviewed are sincere, although I remain skeptical and certainly have never had an encounter in my multiple times on the ship.Read more ›

This book gets 4. Why? It does have pages upon pages of good stories, so that is where the 5 stars come in, but after about page 20 you will get the same story over and over again. A ghost was seen at the closed down pool. The security guards are called and they can find no trace of anyone. This happens over and over. Also, someone will move into a room and will be kept up all night by someone in the next room banging around. Come morning time they go to investigate only to find that the room has been vacant for a while. This as well happens over and over.
Take the first 20 pages, copy and paste it 3 or so times, and you have this book. There are a few interesting stories to scare the 3 star review away though. A very good book indeed, though if I had the option to read it again I would probably deny such a deal. Still, the first time reading it might be worth it to you!
