    Once again, Rayne Hall has a compilation of tremendous stories.


    Once again, Rayne Hall has a compilation of tremendous stories. Having dealt with ghosts myself from a youngin unto today, it was interesting to see the different takes the authors would have on their own ghosts. One thing I did realize though is that, like the other books, some of the stories ended abruptly and left you wondering what happened?

    For example, "The Explanation for Ghosts," ended without explaining what happened to the men. I went back and forward looking to make sure that the story had really ended. I was perplexed, and kept wondering "so what happened?"

    On the other hand, I loved most of the other stories. Rayne Hall's "Take me to St. Roch's" was one of my favourites as the visuals you develop while reading are both disturbing and even made me chuckle. My husband must thought me crazy when I started chuckling while picturing the graveyard scene and the ghost kicking the main Jean.

    Another story I loved was Morris' "A Puddle Of Dead." This story is very realistic and something a lot of people deal with daily. It made it that much easier to empathize with the main character and I was so happy for her when she got her closure.

    This is a great read. Pick up a copy on Amazon here and enjoy the spooktacular thrills. Better yet, wait until Halloween ;)

    Creepy!!!!

    Haunted - Ten Tales of Ghosts is a collection of short chilling ghost stories. I found this collection entertaining and perfect for an evening read. I found the different takes on the ever popular ghost story very enjoyable, each story had a different angle so you were always in for a different aspect of the "ghosts". From traditional sailors wives to some sci-fi thrown in. I didn't get the chills like I expected but there was definitely some creepy moments in each of them. My favorite was the "Puddles of Dead". I received this book on my Nook for review as a recommendation from the editor. Overall impression - worth the time!!!

    Highly recommended

    Reading HAUNTED is like having ten wonderful episodes of The Twilight Zone in print. The short stories, free of gore and horror, are quirky and suspenseful,with an unexpected twist at the end that makes you think 'what if?' Rayne Hall did a good job compiling diverse tales that take us from an English cemetery to Cape Cod, to the year 2048. A fun and intriguing read I highly recommend.
