Format: Paperback
First of all, it should be stated that this is not truly a book that covers the "World's Most Haunted Places" because there is only one story from continental Europe and none from Africa, Asia, or South America. Mostly, this is an account of some very haunted places in what could be termed the Anglo-Saxon world, in other words the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and the United States. Of course to do the extensive examination of each case that the author presents here and cover the entire world would require a tome of Biblical proportions or collection of many volumes. Maybe we can hope for the second possibility and can expect many more books from this very talented writer.

This is quite frankly one of the best ghost story books that I have come across in a very long time. The author has taken the time to do all of the three things that go into making a good book of this type. First he presents the history of the place where the haunting is located and does so accurately but without getting bogged down in detail. Therefore, the reader will learn something of the history of places like the Queen Mary, Big Nose Kate's Saloon or the White House but just enough to get a real feel for the place and not enough to make this into a history book. On top of this, Mr. Belanger has his facts straight and doesn't spout historical fallacies that are so glaring that the entire book's credibility is ruined.

Next, the author presents a clear and logical history of the haunt itself. He relates the story behind the ghost or ghosts in question by telling his readers the theories about whom the ghost might be. Sometimes there is more than one school of thought when it comes to this question and Belanger relates them all, letting the reader decide which theory best fits.

When I first picked up this book I was concerned that it was going to be another one of those "ghost hunters" who thinks they know everything about the afterlife and was going to preach it to me. I love reading about ghost stories, but I don't go in for a lot of that ghost hunting stuff. I was pleasantly surprised at how objective the reporting is in this book. Clearly the author did his homework. I learned something new about some places I

already knew were haunted, and I had no idea about many of the other places covered. It's amazing how similar a ghost encounter can be on opposite sides of the world. Highly recommended!

What makes this book better than most other "true ghost story" collections is that it offers a lot more history and background. The history sets the stage for the first-hand accounts of the many witnesses of ghosts from all over the world. The author clearly did his homework. The other great thing is that each chapter is its own story. I went to the White House chapter first because I had heard it was haunted but never knew why or who. My only complaint is that it seemed too short and didn't cover the Amityville House.

This book reads like a campfire story, and I am enjoying this immensely. I liked the speed of which I got the book and the price that I paid. I am not done with reading, but I think I will be enjoying it for months, perhaps years.

Jeff Belanger is a helluva writer! He doesn't sugar coat anything which is cool because some do to get attention. The only thing with this book is I wish there were more pictures. I love seeing spiritual activity....in books or on TV!!!
