I am a teacher and used this book for a unit on ghosts and the supernatural. While some of the stories, notably "October Chill", were somewhat engaging. Other were boring and ended with a loud boring thud. I would find it hard to recommend this book.

This is a book that everyone should read. It really won't make you sleep with the lights on, but there are some scary parts in it. It is a very good book overall. I would recommend this book to everyone!

Ever been scared of the Boogie man? Ever felt as if you where being watched? This book will send shivers dow your spin and make you sleep with the lights on. So pull the covers over your head and pray that what is in this book is fake. But never under estimate you imagination, for it can make a man do strange things. Evil lurks in the corners of this book. from suicids to mass murders to even lost souls who are to wicked to belong in hell. So close your eyes and invition all that is evil. Now throw it all away. For this book will mask the evils of the old and introduce you to the evils of the new. So get ready....To scream

This book is such a great collection of short ghost stories, they aren't as chilling as others, but they have good meanings and keep your attention the whole way through. :) A really great book.

In the book, Being Dead, each chapter told a different story. One of the main similarities between each of the chapters is that one person in each story had an encounter with a ghost. In the first chapter, it talked about a little eight year old girl who got into a fight with her mom and rode off on her bike. Her mom did not find her before she was hit by a car. The little girl, ghost, looked and looked until she was able to find someone that was able to see her and would agree to help her. The only problem was that the little girl, ghost, did not know what it was she needed. The second chapter was about a man who lost his wife. Oh! How he wished and longed for one last dance with her. You should see his surprise when he heard his wife knocking at the door. The rest of the chapters continue on with stories along this line, but they all have different ghosts, with different stories and different endings. I really enjoyed this book because I find it interesting to read about ghost and how people are able to see and communicate with them. I also enjoyed the fact that it was hard to predict what was going to happen in each of the chapters. You weren¿t able to guess what the ending would be. One of the things I didn¿t particularly care for in the book was when they told you how the little girl died in the first chapter before she became a ghost. It almost made me cry. The book, Being Dead, reminded me of the show Ghost Whisperer. The girl in the show Ghost Whisperer was also able to see ghost and often times found herself helping them. A movie that this book reminded me of is The Haunted Mansion. In this movie there are ghost too who need help from humans to help them resolve issues from their previous lives so they can finally rest in peace. This book has 203 pages and is part of a series of books. I think you would be able to follow the stories in any of the books without reading all of the books in the series in order. I also believe that both boys and girls would enjoy reading this book. I certainly did.
