5.0 out of 5 stars Made the hairs stand up on my neck 3 Sep 2010
Format:Paperback
I have recently started a new job which means I have to travel into London frequently, the job itself is on the railways so I have an interest in their construction, of course one of the most fascinating railways is the London Underground.
I saw the end of a program on TV about Ghosts on the underground and being a bit of a believer decided I should read up on the subject, hence this book.
The book itself is quite thin and glossy and at first I was a little disappointed that it wasn't a bigger volume, I was not disappointed once I began to read.
There is a very brief description of what a Ghost could be, a tiny bit of history of the underground and then on to the main event - the ghosts.
The book goes through the main hauntings in a decent amount of detail, the history of the ghost when alive is interesting as are the accounts of witnesses to the spooks themselves. Some of the stories are a little frightening, some are deeply moving and one cant help feeling sad for some of those who's appalling treatment when alive traumatized them to the point that they are left to walk the tunnels for infinity, one such ghost is Anne Naylor, a young girl whose ghost walks the station at Farringdon, sobbing as she goes, her torment eternal due to the treatment she received on this earth, her story brings a tear to the eye (how can humans do that to each other).
Towards the end of the book the stories and accounts reduce from several pages to perhaps one paragraph of speculation about what MAY lurk at some of the other stations.
I read this book on the train to London and aside from enjoying the stories I took great amusement from some of the looks I was being given by fellow passengers who were not going to catch the bus to the office as I do!!
Well worth reading, weaker towards the end but leaves you wanting to know more, isn't that the idea of a good book?

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book 11 Jan 2009
Format:Paperback
I have to admit I purchased this book not expecting much as I have been a bit disappointed with previous books on hauntings that I have picked up. I found this book to be exactly what I was after; A solid coverage of hauntings on the London Underground without going overboard with unnecessary details.

It has details on numerous sightings and encounters throughout the network and also provides an ample amount of background information relating to the specific locations. A bonus with this book is that there are numerous photos throughout the text which are great for people like myself who are not familiar with London.

As most of the stories only cover 1-2 pages I found this book great when I had a few minutes to fill in. I definitely recommend this for anyone interested in the spooky side of the Tube.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spine tingling in the tube! 7 Oct 2008
Format:Paperback
Will you ever travel on the underground again without constantly looking over your shoulder? Not after reading this! Lots and lots of well written stories about ghosts and unexplained happenings in the London Underground. Atmospheric and well detailed, this is the perfect reading material for curling up on cold winter nights in front of the fire. Would make a good Christmas gift for the discerning ghost story fan. I have read numerous books about haunted sites, and this one certainly does not disappoint. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars review 10 April 2009
Format:Paperback
Many of us go on the underground on a daily bases without a thought of these dark tunnels. On a winters night you can hear the wind down on the stations, spooky? This book tells the stories of it's ghost and the history behind the hauntings. You will never wait at the tube stations and feel the same again!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Really, really poor. 6 Dec 2010
By H
Format:Paperback
I bought this in spite of a couple of bad reviews that warned me about how poorly written it was. I was ready to put up with it, I thought. I love ghost stories and I had heard some really good ones about the London Underground. How bad can it be? The answer is really, really bad. It's not that the style is mediocre or the grammar poor (which it is). It's as if it was written by somebody who does not care about ghosts, ghost stories and, heck, stories themselves! This is not story-telling, it's story-spoiling! As if the authors decided to start telling the thing right at the point where it will make it completely uninteresting and unnecessary to read any more. On top of that, has anybody bothered editing or, indeed, reading this before it went to printing? Repetitions, scrambled grammar, disastrous punctuation, you name it, this book has it. I don't think I've read anything worse. And I love picking up unknown paperbacks at charity shops!

So, let's say you love ghosts, or ghost stories, and you have heard there are some really good ones about the London Underground. How bad can this be? As somebody who was exactly where you are now, trust me, look somewhere else. This is just as bad as it gets.

(And before anybody jumps to criticise my grammar, spelling, style or anything else, please forgive me, I'm not a born English-speaker.)
