The Ghost Hunters
This book must be read!
Being mainly about Borley Rectory, my girlfriend brought me this awesome novel as she knew I was interested in Borley and all that happened there. I have done many hours research on the place, with five visits there, all of which were strange to say the least. But I am certain that the supernatural exists there, parallel to this world.
This book gives a solid account of what might have happened there between the 1920's and 1940's. With interesting characters, some of which are real, you are transformed into the heart of the action, which is a thrilling and sometimes scary read with superb description and depth.
I thoroughly enjoyed it, and can honestly say that it is the best novel I have ever read! I could not sleep, thinking about the story, wanting to read on, the girlfriend regretted buying it as she could not sleep for my bedside lamp being on all night!
I have read the other reviews and I know this one isnt very well written, without many long words and terrible grammar, but it is the truth. I have never done a review before, but I honestly loved this book, I HIGHLY recommend it.
Thanks for reading my first, I am no longer a review virgin. BUY THIS BOOK!!

Thank you very much, I looked at the other review's and to be honest, was terrified about writing mine! So I thought "sod it" and just wrote it in my own style.
And it was a fantastic book!
Thank you once again.

You have visited Borley Rectory? ? I didn't think it was there any more?? Burnt down years ago, did you visit the grounds? I looked on Google earth and can't see anything that shows where the building was or should be?

Hello, sorry I have took so long to reply to your questions, I have visited Borley three times, but not the Rectory as nothing remains due to the fire and demolition, I should have made that clearer, sorry. The grounds are now part of a private garden. I do not advise visiting Borley itself, it is not sign-posted, and very hard to find. Badly behaved groups have caused much upset to the few residents of Borley, and with the Rectory long gone, it is best to stay away, as the police are usually called to move visitors on. Thank you for commenting on my review, you will enjoy the book I promise.
