Overview

At one time or another, most people have experienced a creepy, spine-tingling sensation they can’t explain. Science may rationalize these fears, blaming a natural fear of the unknown, an open window or a drafty doorway, but millions of people believe there is much more to it than that – and who can say they are wrong? Glamis Castle in Scotland, made famous by Shakespeare’s Macbeth is said to be haunted by a whole host of ghostly residents. Dracula’s castle in Transylvania, another spooky literary hub, is perhaps one of the most nerve-wracking places on earth. Ghosts traces the cultural and literary origins of the paranormal, uncovers the dark secrets beneath the myths and untangles the enigma of the supernatural.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking to begin delving into the paranormal possibility of ghosts.  I personally didn't get as much out of this book as I'd hoped, but I think this is because I have been reading about ghosts for a number of years already.  This book touches on where the ideas of ghosts came from, as well as delving into modern lore, and goes as far as discussing TV and movies, and how this has affected the research of the possibility of ghosts.  Again, not a book that shed much light for me, but I still enjoyed reading it.
