Overview

Do you believe in ghosts? Whether you are a believer or a skeptic, the stories of the supernatural in Ghosts Among Us: True Stories of Spirit Encounters will keep you riveted.

Macabre and fascinating, Ghosts Among Us offers true-life, haunting accounts of eerie visitations and paranormal experiences along with artistically shot black-and-white photographs of haunted sites. The personal, firsthand reports and chilling, full-length stories are bolstered by sidebars of actual accounts of "Ghosts in the News." Each chapter explores mysterious events-events that the reader will find hard to pass off as mere coincidence.

In her quest to uncover explanations for each incident, Leslie Rule extensively researched library archives and interviewed credible witnesses, historians, renowned psychics, and parapsychologists. Throughout Ghosts Among Us, Rule's findings are mesmerizing. She writes about being raised in a haunted house. "To top that," Rule explains, "[my mother] introduced me to a serial killer when I was fourteen." The reader is invited to skip ahead to learn about that chilling episode...but the pages prior to that offer their own gripping, spell-binding encounters.

I have read most of Ann Rule's books and thought her daughter's books would be, at the very least, interesting, but what a surprise! I have problems with my eyes, but I can't put it down when I start reading. I put up with the pain in the eyes, because I can't put the book down. She is a wonderful story-teller, very objective and tells it like, I assume, it is!! I am going to get her other books which I am sure will be as interesting as this one.

I was attracted by the title. The writing is very specific and you think she is talking to you. The use of pictures in her book brought the reality of the story. Wording was smooth and easy to picture in my mind. I enjoyed the the book.

I read a few pages in and I just couldn't get into it. I love ghost stories but this is one I just couldn't seem to get. :/

I am really into reading about ghost stories I grew up watching 'Sightings' and a lot of the books that I have read lately are either boring or just tooooo far fetched! Lesile's book Ghosts Among Us is easy to read and one of those books that you can't put down. I finished the book in three days and I really don't have enough time on my hands but this was a wonderful book. I can't wait to read Coast to Coast Ghosts!

I had a great time reading this book. I am somewhat interested in the supernatural and like to read books that give me some ideas of places to visit when traveling. The book covers haunted places all over the world as well as stories of personal experiences with the supernatural.

Another great book by Leslie Rule! Once I started reading it, I found it hard to stop. The tales of true ghost sightings are so interesting. The author does such an excellent job of telling the tales, that I found my imagination transplanted into the world of the unknown. A must read for anyone who enjoys mystery and the unknown.

Very short anecdotes that include the author's beliefs and no depth. I decided to delete this book because it is a waste of space on my nook and terminally boring.

This book was pretty lame. A collection of generic ghost stories such as you have heard a hundred times. I was not spooked whatsoever. I was sorry I wasted my time with it.
