Encyclopedia of Ghosts based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Daniel Cohen's 'The Encyclopedia of Ghosts' is an amazing book. I am only 14 and my language arts teacher rented out this book and another from the school library. She is letting students who want to take them home, have them until someone else does. I have taken this book a total of about 3 or 4 times and couldn't manage to put it down. But because of my hectic shedule and another student signing up to have it, I have not read the whole book. I have read alot of it and from what I can see I totally agree with you, Jennifer. This book is very informative sincing I spend alot of my free time watching horror movies about ghosts, murders, etc. with my mom. This book has explained some of the great hauntings that I had never heard of or read about before without making me bored to death with practically a novel! I have a special interest in IU - Indiana University. Which Indiana is my home state and I plan to go there. And I found that it was nice to read about the IU ghost. I'll have to remember that and find the dorm room. Well long enough and it's getting to be a short story instead of a short short story. LOL.
This is a great book. It tells the stories of many famous, (and infamous) ghosts. It is a well written book, telling the who, what, when, where, and why about each ghost in short, easy to read articles, dashed with bits of witty humor here and there. It is great for reading on the road, because of the short sections that you can read one at a time. It tells about the investigations that went into each haunting, without taking sides on them. Again, this is a wonderful, informative book for anyone interested in this subject.
