There's plenty of helpful illustrations as well. I highly recommend this book.
* These categories aren't used universally
* A fun, light book to read for a moderately 'good scare'
This book is nicely organized with a page for each ghost, plus a sketch of the apparition. Who'd have thought that there are so many categories of ghosts?
This book is ideal for a light read at night... if you want to fall asleep dreaming of spectres, that is!
A clever set of categories helps you understand what kind of ghost it is, before you read the summary of the haunting. With that information, the stories seem even more chilling and real.
If you're a casual or professional ghost hunter, you'll want to become familiar with these terms. This really is -- as the title suggests -- a field guide. Though the book's terminology isn't used universally, ghost hunters who travel (as I do) need to know regional expressions as well. This book is especially useful for that purpose.
Are you looking for haunted places to tour or investigate? Because this book covers international spirits, it's a helpful source of legends to use as a starting point.
(However, whenever you're starting with folklore, it's smart to conduct some historical and online research before investing resources in a serious investigation.)
For most ghost enthusiasts, this is a light, enjoyable read. It's ideal for those who love ghost stories and a fun 'good scare'. It's suitable for most teens, as well.
