Its been a while since i finished this book, and I don´t remember why i hated it so much – but maybe that is just it, that it was boring and generic, maybe really badly executed? I remember there was one good story in there, but I can’t remember it’s name. When I look at the other reviews here, then I think the author needs to return to their roots and do some more creepypastas before making another book – because as I said there was this one good story, and so i’m sure they can do it with a little more honing of the craft.
Don’t bother – This book one long incredibly lame cringe-fest.
I could say somthing about how absolutely loosely the author use the term ‘insane’, and I could say something about how offensive that actually comes off. I won’t – I will however say that the first story is semi decent, and when reading that you could be tricked into thinking there might be a theme… IT’S A TRAP!
I really wanted to like this book, and I bought this specifically because it sounded like it was the most well rounded book out there about this place. It seemed like it would be a good time reading it, proclaimed ghost hunters and a well documented haunting. Alas, this book is a piece of shit, sorry not sorry. Not only is it formattet (i have the kindle version, not sure if it’s like that in the paper edition) so it’s actually a damn chore to read, long run on sentences where the words are together, sortoflikethis. And for some reason the word EMF is randomly stuck into to words like EMFotional. And a personal thing for me was that the part told by Christopher Saint Booth, painted him like the biggest douchebag – I don’t know him, he might be a giant self important jerk, but it seemed super out of place and not nessesary in a book that is supposed to be about a haunting, not starstruck fans. All in all I am super dissapointed, and the author really needs to send his work through an editor – even when it’s a cashgrab.
I read 50 pages and gave up. Dude if I wanted to read about people aimlessly wandering around running into weirdos with large heads – i’d read the Hobbit again. I was so super dissappointed, and I do realise it’s folklore – but the author has written such awesome stories that I had not expeced to be bored to tears. Win some lose some, I suppose.
Don’t bother reading it if you aren’t into slow burn weirdness.
very disjointed, jumbled and feels unfinished somehow. Also I was crossing my fingers for no weird alien/UFO theories, didn’t work, and that was the nail in the coffin. The cases are most of them slightly interesting, some are very intersting – but not enough of them to save this book.
I have a feeling that I forgot to read what it said with tiny letters or something – it was NOTHING like what I expected, and I managed to read 3 chapters before I just gave up. Life is too short. I wanted to like this so bad! might be your thing if you like supernatural gangster stories.
