Well not much here. I do admit that this is a welcome break from the 'look at me, look how good i am' books that psychics tend to write but unfortuneatly this book is nothing more than a collection of phone calls to haunted locations without a visit from mr achorah. I visited one pub in Wales mentioned in the book and the landlandy said the research was nothing more than a phone call from a lady researching for this book, she even said it was though she had written the chapter. I need and expect more than this, more than I could get free from the internet when I buy a book. I'm sure mr. achorah or his ghost writer can do better. Let's hope so for the next installment.

Having looked foreward to a new book by our Derek, I found this one rather disappointing.

It basically does what is says on the cover, introduces the reader to 100 of Britains scariest places and also contains helpul hints on ghost hunting. But it lacks a certain joi de vivre that his other biographical novels have in bucket loads. It's basically a history book, with a line for each location about what haunts where and why. Now as a sceptic I have to ask, why does a spiritualist medium feel the need to research the most haunted areas in Britain some of which he hasn't even visited. To be honest I would have preferred to read about places he has visited and what he picked up personally. As we know from previous novels, Derek has a wonderfully natural narrative.

All in all, interesting historically, but non challenging and rather safe. Theres not a lorra Derek in this book.

I am quite surprised to see this "new" book advertised. 'Haunted Britain & Ireland' is EXACTLY the same book as Derek's 'Haunted Britain' but with an extended title. Nothing new here, the book's back cover read up is even the same. If you already have 'Haunted Britain' don't buy this.

Derek's latest offering takes us to various places all over the United Kingdom, and it is a brilliant and haunting read!
I especially found interesting the part about the Kirkstone Pass Inn in Cumbria having passed there many times on my visits to the Lake District, I am off there in 2 weeks so will have to take a visit inside this Inn and see what I find. There was only a small amount of information on this Inn but, obviously there was quite a lot of ground to cover so I know Derek could not go into immense detail on all the haunted places.
If you love reading about haunted places you will love this, and if your a fan of Derek Acorah (like me!) you will adore this, another fantastic book for your DA collection.
Looking forward to the next already.

Derek Acorah, has made me laugh and cry with this book, he certainly has a sense of humor, I love the illustrations of each venue, in which he has written about them at the top of the page. Which I didn't think they were that scary really, but very interesting, enough to be on the watch out if I do visit any of them.

I loved this book, it must be one of his better ones yet, and really makes a very good read. I never knew there were so many Haunted places in Britain and Ireland, it certainly, makes you aware of so many people who have witnessed things that go bump in the night.

Recommended, without Doubt.

I was given is book for christmas 2006 and I had read it by Boxing day. It contains short ghost stories, nearly all have been visited by the Most Haunted or Ghost town team. A lovely stocking filler and a enjoyable read
