All the ghost stories in this book are interesting and unusual although they all come from the same area. From stories that illuminate the theme of seeing ghosts as glimpses into the past to ghosts that manifest themselves as robed skeletons this book has it all. The tales range from places people feel are haunted to places where the haunting apparently makes it too well known.Two of the most eerie stories are ''Not a Normal House'' and ''The Ghost from the Closet''. This book is the most consistently interesting of any ghost book I have ever read.Whether you believe in ghosts or not, this book is good entertainment. Yet as many collections of ghost stories warn, ''Don't read this at night''. Unfortunately, I did and I left the lights on for a long time after that!
