The main reason why I picked up this title was that I thought I would be get a book about scientificly done paranormal investigation in UK. Sadly this book does not live up to the expectations, rather it falls exactly among the other paranormal publications I have read about British investigations. But then again, the author constantly mentions the fraud TV-show Most Haunted without any questioning of their authenticity and fails to inform the reader of Derek Acorah being a fraud medium... It is not surprising then to continue reading and finding stories that are full of Ouija boards, table and glass tippings, psychic mediums, etcetera, without any serious consideration of what exactly goes on during those seances. Sure, he does mention EVPs and EMFs passingly, even attempting debunking some but that does not save the book from the flood of 'you got to be kidding me, not again' stories.
What really baffles me is that what exactly is the point of this book since most of the stories are either the author tagging along to public events (where controlling the big groups for avoiding evidence contamination is almost impossible) or citing short and vague memories of ghostly apparitions by people? Is it just a clever publicity stunt for the group most feature in the book?
What? No amazing scientific breakthroughs here. No amazing anything really. Just a bunch of self styled paranormal dabblers...in their spare time..without the wherewithal or education in their chosen hobby to be taken any more seriously than daytime TV. To believe as they do, that Ouija boards, dowsing rods, pendulums and Dictaphones would give them credibility is ridiculous. When one of them, apparently in the belief that she is a Wiccan devotee performed a White Light Protection Ritual (no, nor me) to close a Ouija session, I actually imagined spirits, demons and all the other entities there widdling themselves laughing. They're rather childish really. To give the author credit though; he wasn't overly enthusiastic with what they were hearing, seeing or whatever as their experiences and feelings didn't touch him at all. They even went through their repertoire as an entertainment night at a pub. And the "vigils" with the public...splitting up into groups and wandering about ...idiotic in serious research. Silly and unsubstantiated piffle. One of them claimed that a woman was haunting a house because "she was unhappy about how she died". And that was it. Off they all pottered. House still haunted. What? The stories are all the same and nothing exceptional or even particularly interesting. Certainly not frightening.
This book is a very interesting. It tells you all the true real life scary ghostly paranormal phenomena activity. Which unveils supernatural, ghostly figures, ghosts, encounters, entities and many more scary interesting things basted on true events. This is a very scary and shocking book . When you read this book you will be shock and scared of what you are reading. You will have a shock of your life. This is a lovely book although it's scary and creepy I love it cos I like all things based on horror. This review is written by Me Christy Matthews miss C Matthews.
