Overview



Hans Holzer's probing investigative techniques and expertise in the paranormal have earned him the reputation the world over as the Ghost Hunter. Here we follow him around the globe on the trail of the Uncanny and in pursuit of unexplained footsteps, apparitions, and other psychic phenomena.
Along the way, he introduces us to the ghosts who still inhabit homes, cling to castle walls, and lurk at lonely country crossroads. These are just a few of the ghosts we meet: Grandma Thurston, whose ghost still works the loom, tugged at the Ghost Hunter's elbow in an eighteenth-century farmhouse. The Ghost at the Altar is that of a pastor whose wooden church burned down, destroying many years of work and many dreams. The specter of railroadman Joe Baldwin, who lost his head while trying to forestall a collision, still patrols a section of track in Wilmington, North Carolina. A haunted house in Los Angeles is the site of a nightly party where invisible guests celebrate as the horrified inhabitants listen on.
We watch from a front-row seat as Holzer establishes a connection to the spirits behind these and other hauntings in deep-trance sessions conducted with renowned psychics. In these sessions, he eases the spirits' transition from this world to the next-and brings the reader face to face with haunted places and people around the world.

    Very good.

    Hans Holzer hunted haunted houses before it became popular. This book is an overview of his work that covers years of time and locations across the world. There are case stories, haunted histories, and reliable evidence from the original "Ghost Hunter." I have read a number of haunting related books, and this one is very different in a good way.

    This author is a little hard to follow because he packs a ton of information in a small space (one book). There are a lot of cases, tv interviews, and personal notes contained herein.

    Primarily, Holzer talks about the evolution of ghost hunting through time, and the varied reactions that he has received to his work. This book covers a long period of time, and the stories are not all in chronological order. It can a bit confusing at times. It was hard to read past the first few chapters, but I am very glad that I did.

    After I finished reading "Ghosts I've Met," I developed a healthy respect for Hans Holzer and his work in the paranormal field. I have the hardcover book, so I do not know how the ebook looks. If you are interested in hauntings and spirits, this book will give you some added perspective. I recommend this book wholeheartedly. Give it a try.

    PS. I do not know the author, except through his writing in books. This is an objective review.

    Not an Edge of Your Seat

    The truth is, I love ghosts stories, and the contents were interesting. However, it was almost impossible to read! I don't think I even got through it, I don't even remember. I wish I could rewrite it without the dates, places, times, and names that make it so complicated. If a condensed, summarized version was out there, I would love it!
