I had only a couple issues with the book - first the pictures often have nothing to do with the story. When they're talking about a certain cemetery, it would be nice to get a picture of the actual cemetery and not a random drawing, piece of artwork or stock photo of another location. Also, most of the stories don't really go very in-depth and usually end with some cliff-hanger like, "Do the ghosts of these people really haunt this place?" I expected Jack Palance to pop out and say, "Believe it or not." I just felt they could have gone a little further with each story - maybe interviews with people who had seen stuff, historical records or something else more investigative. But that's my personal opinion.
Overall, a very interesting book about some odd stories in the state. Perfect coffee table material and fun to read around Halloween.
