The only misstep in this book is Jim transcribing the accounts word for word, including poor grammar, ineffective storytelling, etc. as it came from the mouth of the teller. I get that it keeps intact the authenticity of the accounts, but if you want to hear the actual account, just listen to the podcast. When transitioning these accounts to the printed page, I think they could have used some editing to beef up weak spots, delete pointless details, or otherwise reform the story to put the best version of it to paper. As it is, the accounts are too raw, and what works for an audio experience doesn't translate to the page in this kind of literal word-for-word dictation.
Still, Jim does great work and I like having this book in my collection. In spite of some nits to pick, it's a fun read with short little stories told by real people.
Jim Harold is the jovial and convivial host of Jim Harold's Paranormal Podcast. He's taken some of his best ghost stories and put them into text available to read. And there are some great stories in here! Some are creepy, and some are (to use a term Jim has been accused of overusing) poignant, but all of them are really enjoyable.
There are a lot of paranormal podcasts, but there is only one Jim Harold. Some hosts of the other podcasts can be disrespectful and downright cocky sometimes to their callers, but Jim is always respectful and seems genuinely interested in hearing his callers' stories - and with good reason! There are some great stories in here.
Looking forward to more from Jim Harold!
Top international reviews
This book is a collection of some of Jim's favourite stories from his callers, you will read about Lucifer's face in a lava lamp, ghostly encounters, prophetic dreams, strange visions, alien visitations, ghostly pets visiting their owners, and more. You will absolutely love this collection of tales (and his further books) if you're a fan of creepy tales.
Don't forget if you have your own stories, you can also appear as a guest on the show, your story may end up in the next volume!
I'm in England, UK, Jim is in the States, but that doesn't matter, he has many international callers, and like me, they have read Jim's true stories from round the campfire. One piece of advice - don't read this on your phone, tablet, or PC, in the dark, because I'm telling you - you get so engrossed in the stories, if something went "bump" or you get poked? You'll jump out of your skin. These books aren't fictional - they are all true situations that have happened to people. They may have happened to you, or someone you know.
Jim has put together a great collection of stories, which are downright scary and creepy. I love them, and I can't wait for more. I give the books the highest recommendation possible - and you can download the app to Jim's show from Google Play. You won't regret it.
