3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting subject matter.
Began in a interesting way , but quickly became boring and repetitive. I did not finish the book. A great pity that it was not written in a less documentary way.

This review is from: Conversations with Ghosts (Paperback)
As stated in the Introduction, this book is a collection of investigation accounts written by the late Dr. Alex Tanous (1926-1990). They involve a variety of haunting-type phenomena, including apparitions, poltergeist, and other strange sights and sounds, the investigations of which were undertaken by Tanous in collaboration with Dr. Karlis Osis of the American Society for Psychical Research (ASPR). However, Tanous died before his research and the book were completed, leaving it to Callum E. Cooper, a psychologist and doctoral candidate at the University of Northhampton, to recently resurrect Tanous's papers and complete the book.

For the most part, I am not particularly interested in the subject of haunted houses, but I had read about Tanous's unusual paranormal abilities before and was curious enough to read this book. I'm glad I did as it was very enlightening.

In the Introduction, Cooper provides a fairly comprehensive biography of Tanous, who was an experimental subject of the ASPR during the 1970s and early 80s for his out-of-body capabilities. Osis was one of the researchers studying Tanous. "Aside from Dr Tanous being able to project his own apparition, which he and several researchers considered to be important evidence for survival research," Cooper notes, "apparitions of the dead were equally of interest to Dr. Tanous and his research." Cooper adds that Tanous approached his research with proper scepticism.

"...I am able, at will, to leave my body, and meet [the ghosts] on their level,' Tanous is quoted. "With my personal consciiousness, combined with the consciousness of Alex 2 (his spirit body), the two of us are able to contact the ghosts." He goes on to explain that he was able to relive the scenes that traumatized occupants of the home and resulted in the haunting. He would see the scenes as if he were watching a movie.

Several fascinating investigations are detailed, including one in which two earthly lovers could not find each other in the afterlife because they wre looking for each other in different time periods. Tanous was able to communicate with them and set them straight so that they could find each other.

I had a difficult time putting this book down once I got into it.
