This book is fun, containing much to amuse and much that can aid us all in the difficult task of providing good food, during a period when food costs are soaring. --Amateur Photographer<br /><br />Rather than simply pointing at spooky images Willin balances his feelings as a believer in the paranormal with engaging text and, when necessary, acknowledges photographic explanations for apparitions. A nice little book to have on your shelf. --Amateur Photographer<br /><br />Mysterious, Mesmerizing read. Whatever your beliefs, it's an interesting read - in time for Halloween. --The Sun

An interesting collection. --Fortean Times (The World of Strange Phenomena)

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting title 17 Oct 2008
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
If you've been a fan of the supernatural of general occult phenomena there's no real shortage of books on the subject, however for the more involved there's relatively few actually showing them. Here the old saying of "a picture is worth a thousand words" is proven as this heavily illustrated illumination of various phenomena shows within the books pages. However as a downside it spends only a page covering each case and is a more overall look rather than a concentrated examination in much the way of Most Haunted on LivingTV. I'd recommend this as a gift for that family member who has an enquiring mind and interest in this field as whilst it does show a number of cases I've previously heard about, it does also show a lot of new cases that lead to only further questions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Thought Provoking 26 Feb 2009
This book has some really interesting, unexplained images which makes you question whether there is actually something else after death?

Very well laid out and informative, whether you believe in ghosts or not, it does provide some startling pictures...

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok book 28 Jan 2012
I got this book because I'm a paranormal nerd.. I love any books about ghosts, monsters, poltergeists etc.. But I have to say I was slightly disappointed with this book, most of the pics are hard to even see where the "spook" is etc, I knew that the book would be a bit tongue in cheek so entertaining at least but even with that I was bored after just flicking through it once . But if your into things like this it's still an ok book to add to your collection .

2.0 out of 5 stars My personal persepective? Don't recommend it. 23 May 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Tempting cover but I would say this is maybe the best image of the book.
I was disappointed in the content and wouldn't recommend it for anyone
with a serious interest in the Paranormal.
