The stories are interesting so far (I've read the first 5). They're short and if you grew up in NH it's a cool book to read. I'm just a little appalled at the fact that the author doesn't know the difference between "then" and "than". Apparently she graduated college majoring in creative writing yet doesn't know simple grammar that was taught to most in 3rd grade? I'm on page 30 and EVERY time the word "than" is meant to be used "then" is written instead. Like I said I'm on page 30 and I've found EIGHT errors already, 5 of which are incorrect uses of then/than. The other three were either a word placed where it shouldn't be, making the sentence make NO sense at all, or a complete misspelling altogether. I don't know who edited this, who would publish this but they should be ashamed. Not to mention the "writer" who graduated college with a degree in writing can't write at least ONE chapter of their book without making an error? By the way, the chapters are 3-5 pages long with big letters and pictures along the way...It's seriously annoying. Maybe I should publish some stories and get rich, I'd do better than (see THAN) Rennee Mallett! I'm no scholar by the way, I'm just a 21 year old community college student who actually retained some knowledge from my grade school days. I can't wait to see what other crimes against grammar she has in store for the rest of the book. Ridiculous.
The stories are fasinating! Short and to the point! I do work at St. Joseph Middle school in the Boiler Room, and now I walk around the school with my senses on high alert!
I thought this book was interesting and somewhat scary at the same time. Seeing I grew up in Manchester NH I have been to some of these places, and others I haven't. Some of these places just by looking at them or driving by you'd know that they would be haunted. Can't wait to lend it to others to read.
This book is fantastic, filled with short stories of ghostly events, it will make even the non believer think twice. Well written!!!!
Very well written, description is flawless in each story. Trying to savor it so the book will not end too fast.
A nice interesting read. The stories are like the ones heard sitting around a campfire in the dark woods with good friends.I didn't want the book to end!
