If you are truly interested in the history of Hallowe'en, this isn't for you. It's basically a "history" book as written by a fundamentalist christian. Sort of a "you'd better be good or else" book. So it's full of anti-Celtic, Anti-Catholic jibes. It actually offended me. But everyone is entitled to their opinion, I guess. I just don't have to buy it. I sent it back.

I am a pagan, yes, Halloween, is an important holiday to us, it is our new year, yes. am I a satanist NEVER I don't believe in satan so how can I worship him or be a follower of him as this book so kindly suggests. I gave this book to some of my Christian friends, they as well as me are appolled with it and the ideas it breeds. Many say religion breeds haterd, only when ideas like thease are brought forward, and ppl try to presucute others for what they believe, instead of teaching tolerance teach ingerance and that is what this book does. it is apoling, very inacrate, and all around not well thought out or reasreached and very biased.

Overall, this was a very musing book. I did like the the subjects mentioned, they peeked my interest. But I believe the main problem was that the subjects never made any valid arguments toward their case. This made the entire book present itself as a fallacy, which is the absolute opposite of what Mr. Uselton was trying to do. I really would have enjoyed the book a lot more if it was in much fuller detail of the history of halloween, and the motive for its concern and darknes.

If you are looking for an in-depth study of the history of Halloween, then this book is not for you. However, the author has tried to remain objective (despite his Christian background) by quoting secular books to make his points (I liked this feature of the book). I have noticed in the reviews that many self described pagans take offense at the way he presents the information, but they do not refute the information with facts, just rhetoric. Anyway, even if 1/3 of the information in this book is accurate, people who are Christian should think twice about celebrating Halloween. Maybe they should celebrate in a manner less pagan such as; celebrate the harvest time or the fall season.
