I was not disappointed,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ghost Hunting: True Stories of Unexplained Phenomena from The Atlantic Paranormal Society (Kindle Edition)
I purchased this book, as being a fan of Ghost Hunters, the TV show that follows the investigations of TAPS, I wished to read about cases that did not make it to the show and read about the experiences of the team members involved in notable cases that were shown on TV.
I was not disappointed at all. Grant and Jason are unassuming plumbers who work for Roto Rooter. This book tells of Jason's personal experiences when he was younger which gave him an interest in the paranormal. It also documents how Jason and Grant met, became great friends and founded TAPS together.
I enjoyed reading about past and present members of TAPS and their backgrounds, including the fact that Steve Gonsalves is/was a police officer.
The book is mostly Jason telling of the experiences with "Grant's take" at the end of each story. I found that Jason and Grant are excellent at recounting their experiences and telling of them in a way that the reader feels part of the action and a fly on the wall during the investigations. There is enough detail included that each investigation is easily pictured in the reader's head and those investigations that the reader is familiar with from watching on TV, the detail allows for the reader to not only remember the investigation well, but also allows the reader to feel how the investigators and the clients felt at the time and also allowed for the reader to take the detail included in the book and watch the episode in a whole new light and see/hear more detail than before,which I did with some of the episodes I have recorded on my DVR.
I would recommend this book to anybody. It is a fantastic read and flows very well, is extremely easy to read and not put down for hours on end.
I would also recommend the other books by Jason and Grant, which are the follow-up to this book, Seeking Spirits which recounts more investigations and also the two novels Jason and Grant have written, Ghost Trackers and Ghost Town which follow the adventures of Amber, Drew and Trevor. They are extremely well written and a must have for any fan of literature.
