Overview

Whether they are bumping about our attics, hitchhiking on a moonlight road, or fraternizing with our reflections, ghosts tantalize us with their secrets." --Leslie Rule

Meet Leslie Rule-America's real-life ghost hunter with a penchant for sharing authentic, spine-tingling stories of the paranormal.

The Gallup Organization reports that more than 32 percent of Americans have seen a ghost. More than half the population believes in the spiritual, cosmic, or supernatural. To Leslie Rule, such revelations come as no surprise. Rule has spent more than a decade researching specters and spirits and has chronicled her ghostly tales in three previous titles, Coast to Coast Ghosts, Ghosts Among Us, and When the Ghost Screams.

Inside Ghost in the Mirror, Rule documents more than dozens of stories of paranormal apparitions that reveal themselves on the other side of the looking glass. Rule's painstaking archival research presents factual clues to each haunting, along with her own dramatic black-and-white photographs that capture the eerie unrest of the scenes she explores.

Having previously read books by Leslie Rule I recently bought her new book, "Ghost In The Mirror." Giving detailed accounts of hauntings throughout the U.S., Leslie kept me interested and engaged in each chapter. Whether you are just starting to read books on the paranormal or are a long time reader and researcher, Leslie delivered chilling accounts of apparitions, voices, footsteps, and provided detailed historical records in each chapter. Along with each story she provides a phone number, address, and in some cases an E-mail address for various restaurants, hotels, and Inns. Enjoy and keep reading! Mike

*I received this book as part of the LibraryThing Early Reader Program.

If you love real life ghost stories and tales of haunted houses, hospitals and highways this is an excellent book for you. A compendium of tales of apparitions and mysterious happenings the book is cut into small, easy to digest pieces and often includes contact information for the restaurants, hotels and stores that claim to have ghostly residents.

Rule does offer some research into the possible identities of the ghosts, as well as token information on area ghost hunters and enough contact information to plan a ghost theme vacation.

She doesn't offer a skeptic's point of view or attempt to make the otherworldly scientific (aside from mentioning EVPs and batteries draining on investigations). She does include many interesting pictures that while not supernatural are mood setting.

If you don't like tales of hauntings then you won't find anything new here. But ghost fans can be insatiable and this is a fine starting place or addition to a fan's library.

I would highly recommend this book, especially if you are into knowing about spirits and ghosts. I would highly advise to read it if you are from WA state. however the author does write about spirits and ghosts in other states also. I have always been curious about ghosts, spirits, and the other side. This book really opened up my eyes and gave me lots of knowledge in this field. I read this book in less than 24 hrs. I bought to more of her books and read those within 10 days. I am a registered nurse and a co worker told me about the author Leslie Rule since I have read all of her mother's books (Ann Rule) Now we are passing the books around our consulting nurse department at work and all the nurse's here cannot wait to get their hands' on the books!

I found this book to be boring and monotonous. I like the author, however, in spite of this "flop". There are too many instances of "This man knew a man who heard of a man who was said to be haunting this place" Beyond the first and second-person vernacular, it becomes unbelievable.
