Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Although this short book is titled 'Paranormal Brighton and Hove: true ghost stories' it also contains chapters on witchcraft, faith healing, UFOs and crop circles. It's a very mixed bag and one that's full of mistakes. Facts are wrong or not properly checked, there is inadequate research and poor proofreading.

Page 12: The author misquotes the famous lines from 'Hamlet', Act 1, Scene 5 as "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than your philosophy has ever dreamt of."

Page 15: "Deryk Carver was burned, either at the stake or in a barrel...." It was a barrel. Why didn't the author bother to clarify this fact?

Page 23: "This fine house was built in 1540-1550 in the reign of Henry VIII." Henry VIII's reign ended in 1547.

Page 27: "...treasure was discovered and appropriated by the Holy Order." Which particular Holy Order would that be?

Page 28: An entry on 'The Rottingdean Club' concludes with the statement that "the club is a Grade II listed building and one of the prettiest in the village, even by Shoreham standards."

Page 36: A bookshop is wrongly identified as The Sussex Book Shop. At the time of the event described, the 1950s, the shop was known as John Beal and Son.

Page 51: In describing the haunting of The Grange, Rottingdean, by the Black Prince, the author mentions that The Grange is "a fine Georgian building dating from the 1700s." Three lines later she informs us that "the Black Prince was alleged to have stayed at The Grange in 1355." (The Prince haunts a building on the site of the former Grange).

Page 80: "Portslade and Southwick lie to the east of Hove...." On page 81 we are told that "Portslade is an area of Hove lying to the west."

Page 85: "...the ruins of Bramber Castle in Steyning." The ruins are in, surprisingly, the village of Bramber.

At this point, I gave up.

To be avoided.
