Five pages into the book and you forget its supposed to be about Route 66. The author just follows the route to highlight supposed haunted locations in the states 66 passes through. The book is not about the road, the lure of the road, nor the stories associated with the road. I heard a podcast with the author in which he told a story about visiting locations along the route to promote his book. He claimed how great it was to actually see the places he'd written about. In other words he'd not even done the leg work to write this book! He wrote the book based on "Internet research" and stories he'd heard elsewhere. Very disappointing that he didn't do his own research. In the end it's just a conglomeration of campfire like stories, identical to countless other "ghosts and hauntings" books out there.
