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!
If you love reading true paranormal fare however, you'll probably still thoroughly enjoy reading this book, because let's face it, most people love this kind of stuff! Most of the stories are more than adequate, though almost all of them are pretty short, being told in a first person narrative by the individual who actually experienced the paranormal phenomena.
Oddly enough, I found the sections entitled "Monsters and Aliens' and 'Tales of Dreams and Death,' to be both more interesting and truly chilling than some of the actual ghost stories, but since judging such things is highly subjective, I would recommend reading this wonderful first installment in Jim Harold's Campfire series with an open mind.
Whether about ghosts or not, some of the material is pretty hair raising. And the fact that most of the stories aren't much longer than a few short pages, means that there really isn't enough detail in the vast majority of the narratives to really sink your teeth into. This is a great collection of firsthand experienced true paranormal tales however, and even though I'd have loved to have seen more of an in-depth study of some of the cases, it's a delightful book to read just the same.
Perhaps most importantly, if you're easily frightened, this book probably won't hit you too hard - though again, that's admittedly, pretty subjective. So even though Jim Harold's 'True Ghost Stories' might keep some people up at night, I'd wager that most of those folks would be the very young, the unusually timid, and the more or less inexperienced and uninitiated when it comes to reports of paranormal phenomena. Either way, if you love lengthy books with short chapters that get right to the point and don't waste much time in getting to the creepy punchline, you'll absolutely love this collection of truly spooky and mysterious supernatural stories.
