A fun, entertaining, 'coffee table' book. Lots of short articles from places all over Michigan that have interesting and odd stories.

Accurate from the standpoint of a few of the places I already knew about.

Perfect for you or your guests to spend a few minutes browsing through, reading a few articles.

This book is great. Gives a very different view of Michigan. Interesting information not found elsewhere. I want to go on a long road trip and see these places.

My parents are transplants (into Michigan), and I thought they would enjoy this as a fun coffee table book. Almost 2 years later, I went to visit for their New Years Eve party, and the book was still on the table--and the guests enjoyed thumbing through the interesting factoids and places that they didn't even know about. Without reading it all myself, I can say that it was an effective gift and well liked.

This book was soooooo interesting. I couldn't put it down. It seems like most of the weird things though are out of my reach as I live in south-western Michigan and a lot of the really weird stuff in in the north and far west of Michigan. Interesting, for example: Darwin Road leads to Hell. Hm . . . it really does. Darwin Road will lead you into the city of Hell, Michigan. Also, Paradise, Michigan is almost exactly 666 miles from Hell, Michigan. Wow!!! Also, we here in Brighton have known for years about the satanic cults, but reading about them in this book reinforced that. And much much more. The pictures are good too. Worth buying and reading.

I bought this book and would have returned it had I kept the reciept and Borders had not closed. There was misinformation in the book. Locations and stories were wrong. I was turned off to the book once I had read the stories for Monroe, MI. They were incorrect. If these were wrong then I'm sure others were also. Doesn't someone do fact checking for these?

I liked to learn about little places throughout Michigan that I might not see on a "What to do" / vacation website. Could do with less haunted stories. The sequel to this book has even more of that stuff, so I was disappointed in the sequel.

I bought this book a few years ago and went on a road trip to see some of the sights...it was one of the best vacations I've taken! Lost the book, so I had to buy it again. There are lots of hidden MI treasures!

I love the ones that are actually written by Mark and Mark! I would love Mark and Mark to come out with new stuff that I can buy!!!! I like the narrative voice of this author and would probably buy Weird Minnesota by her.
