    Not much "Boo" for your buck

    This book by regional writer Thomas D'Agostino could be called "Well Known Tourist Attractions with occasional ghost sightings". I've read a few of this author's books in the past, and while this newest effort is better than his past work, it still feels stale and flat. Once you get past the painfully corny chapter titles ("Stun if by Land" and "Boo if by Sea"), most of the book blandly relates the history of a selection of inns, restaurants and historic sites around the Northeast as if quoting from a tourism pamphlet. The book's ghostly accounts sometimes feel like an afterthought, and are mostly a mix of personal anecdotes by employees of the featured establishments, and time-worn stories about places like Salem and Belcourt Castle. It's not unreadable, just not very interesting. Books like "Haunted Inns of New England" and "Passing Strange" have covered the same material with more style and spook-factor.
