Most Helpful Customer Reviews
If you have ever wondered, secretly, if your house has ghosts or other spirits present, this is a great book for you. Even if you are just intrigued by the idea of a "haunting" and want to hear of other's experiences, it is a fun and fascinating read. I particularly enjoyed the author's sharing of her childhood events which led to her interest in the paranormal. The book is well written and very down to earth in it's approach to the various possibilities that might indicate an unearthly presence. There are suggestions on doing your own investigations to see if your house is haunted, or if you prefer, ideas on choosing a paranormal investigator. After reading the real life accounts of investigations of hauntings, I was wishing that I could experience a presence, maybe just a little one, for the adventure of it.
