Overview

It's easy to say ghosts exist or don't exist. Anyone can do that. Trying to figure out the why or what is a different story. Paranormal investigator Zak Bagans, host of the popular Travel Channel series Ghost Adventures, pulls from his years of experience with paranormal activities and unexplained phenomena to provide an evenhanded look at a divisive subject. In Dark World, regardless of whether you believe in the afterlife or not, Zak does his best to find and share answers to the phenomena that people encounter. He wants you to experience a haunting through his eyes: to feel what it's like to be scared, freaked out, pushed, cold, sluggish, whispered-at and touched by an ethereal being or attacked by a demonic spirit. But beyond simply experiencing these events, Zak is looking for the reasons behind them, searching for answers to the unanswered questions. Addressing all the major issues and theories of the field in an impartial way, Dark World is a must read for paranormal enthusiasts, those who don't believe and anyone who's ever wondered about things that go bump in the night.

Meet the Author

Zak Bagans never believed in ghosts until he came face to face with one during a terrifying incident in a Michigan apartment. Not the passive type, Zak set out to learn more about the paranormal. In 2004 he produced an award-winning documentary film that changed his life and the lives of many others when he captured one of the most shocking pieces of paranormal evidence ever. Now the host of two top-rated paranormal television shows, Bagans has conducted hundreds of investigations into the unknown, becoming intimately familiar with the places ordinary people will not go.

Kelly Crigger is not a paranormal investigator, but has been intrigued by the paranormal for many years and has conducted several investigations alongside Zak. He is the author of three books, including Title Shot, and over two hundred internet and print articles. Crigger retired from the US Army in 2011 after 24 years in uniform.

The Lead Investigator of The Ghost Adventures Crew, Zak Bagans, teamed up with Kelly Crigger to bring you an in-depth, behind the scenes look at paranormal investigations and the series of events that took a kid from Washington D.C. to some of the scariest places on Earth. Admittedly, I've only seen the show a few times, but was intrigued enough to spend a few hours reading this book. I'm not sure what I expected to find or hoped would be inside the pages. Whatever it was, I enjoyed reading his take on what he's experienced. Any fan of the show or searching for what's beyond the grave will undoubtedly be in for a wild and exciting ride. You want bone chilling, first had recollections of encounters with evil entities? You got it! You want a crash course history lesson on exorcisms, rites of passages, and the most haunted places in the world? You got it! You want a glimpse of the future and what paranormal activity experts can contribute to the crime-solving world? You got it! Above all, the book is very well written and easy to read and follow. This is a must own for any fan of the show or anyone interested in pursuing a career a similar field as Zak. Be careful though, the warning on the inside of the cover wants you to be aware that if you try this stuff on your own, it might not turn out so well.

This is an excellent book with not one dull part.Honestly, I didn't expect it to be this good. I love how he explains all the history about the places he's investigated.And there is a scare factor too.Hate to admit it but I had to leave my bedroom door open a couple of night, so the hall light would shine in! You won't be disappointed! Great job, Zak & Kelly! Hope they write another.....

I like the way the book was put together. I enjoyed the detailed descriptions and things they didn't show on the tv show ghost adventures, but it is pointless to read if you have seen every single episode of ghost adventures. It is basically the show in book form with just a little added detail. Also, I must say I enjoyed the pictures in each chapter of Zak Bagans. He is one handsome man.

Congratulations to Lead Investigator Zak Bagans of Ghost Adventures and co-author Kelly Crigger on presenting very well written and easy to read journey into some of the "spookiest" locations on the planet. I enjoyed the attention to detail and explanation of procedure behind the experiences. Having worked in one of the places toured in the series, I can testify to the occurrence of inexplicable phenomena that is not always benign. Whether one believes or not, the book is exciting, interesting and thought provoking and was a delightful volume to curl up with on a stormy night. Admittedly, I did go check the doors once in mid-read. The subject history is enlightening, the first-person encounters are at times terrifying and the opportunity to learn more about what we don't know is fascinating. Hopefully, there will be a sequel!

Zak Bagans personal experience within the paranormal field is fascinating, thrilling and a major help to those interested in this particular field. Zak's experiences are real, true and honest; something you don't always find nowadays. Once i started reading Dark World i couldn't stop reading it. Very excited to see what else Zak Bagans writes in the future, i know it'll be just as awesomely amazing as Dark World. Zak Bagans keep up the great work, keep doing what you do and know you are such a true inspiration and hero to so many people!! Much love and respect!! #GACFamily

I really enjoyed reading this book. Zak Bagans has a way of stating the facts, while adding a bit of his sense of humor. He gives a detailed story of his past experiences when he was younger and even writes about his experiences while investigating many sites of ghostly phenomenon. Zak also gives an overview of the scientific approach when it comes to Paranormal investigating and explains that there are more people than you think in this world that has either had a paranormal experience or believes in the paranormal. Definitely worth reading! I'd recommend this book to anyone seeking answers about the paranormal, anyone looking to paranormal investigating or anybody else just fascinated in the paranormal world in general!
