5.0 out of 5 stars Thought-provoking record of a marathon investigation, 17 Jan 2011
This review is from: This House Is Haunted: The Investigation of the Enfield Poltergeist (Paperback)
This is the record of the investigation into what must still be one of the longest poltergeist disturbances ever, running as it did into a couple of years rather than the usual couple of months or so.

As ever with this subject, accusations of hoaxing persist. But I find it very hard to believe that anyone who reads this book from start to finish could seriously think that what happened was all down to the trickery of children.

Guy Lyon Playfair is an open-minded writer who at the same time never ignores the possibility of a rational explanantion, if feasible. But in this case, it often isn't.

See what you think. I was absolutely hooked by this book, and I'm sure it will stay with me for a long time yet. I'm glad I didn't read it when I was a kid though, I think it would have freaked me out completely!
