Perfection! June 29 2005
By Dennis Phillips - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
First of all, it should be stated that this is not truly a book that covers the "World's Most Haunted Places" because there is only one story from continental Europe and none from Africa, Asia, or South America. Mostly, this is an account of some very haunted places in what could be termed the Anglo-Saxon world, in other words the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and the United States. Of course to do the extensive examination of each case that the author presents here and cover the entire world would require a tome of Biblical proportions or collection of many volumes. Maybe we can hope for the second possibility and can expect many more books from this very talented writer.

This is quite frankly one of the best ghost story books that I have come across in a very long time. The author has taken the time to do all of the three things that go into making a good book of this type. First he presents the history of the place where the haunting is located and does so accurately but without getting bogged down in detail. Therefore, the reader will learn something of the history of places like the Queen Mary, Big Nose Kate's Saloon or the White House but just enough to get a real feel for the place and not enough to make this into a history book. On top of this, Mr. Belanger has his facts straight and doesn't spout historical fallacies that are so glaring that the entire book's credibility is ruined.

Next, the author presents a clear and logical history of the haunt itself. He relates the story behind the ghost or ghosts in question by telling his readers the theories about whom the ghost might be. Sometimes there is more than one school of thought when it comes to this question and Belanger relates them all, letting the reader decide which theory best fits. He then proceeds to relate the early sightings involving the haunt he is writing about and some of these apparitions have been reported for hundreds of years.

Finally, each and every story related in this book is backed up with modern eyewitness accounts, a trait that is often missing from these books. Mr. Belanger has most certainly done his homework and has talked to at least one person who has experienced each haunt first hand, and in many cases he has testimony from several witnesses. Many of the cases covered in this book contain accounts of paranormal experiences that have occurred in the last five years and nowhere does the author rely on old legends which no living person can attest to. Some of the haunts to be found in the book are well known, such as the Whaley House and the Tower of London, but even with these well worn haunts Mr. Belanger is able to shed some new light. He does this once again by actually talking with people who have had some kind of experience is the last few years.

The author's writing style is pleasing, his research is meticulous and he has done the leg work necessary to bring his stories to life and make them believable. It has been a long time since I enjoyed a book of ghost stories as much as I have enjoyed this one. I wish that everybody who plans on writing a book of this type would read this book so that they could see how it should be done. This is as close to the perfect ghost story book as I think I am ever likely to read.

A "must have" ghost book Sept. 27 2004
By Roberto Aberasturia Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
When I first picked up this book I was concerned that it was going to be another one of those "ghost hunters" who thinks they know everything about the afterlife and was going to preach it to me. I love reading about ghost stories, but I don't go in for a lot of that ghost hunting stuff. I was pleasantly surprised at how objective the reporting is in this book. Clearly the author did his homework. I learned something new about some places I

already knew were haunted, and I had no idea about many of the other places covered. It's amazing how similar a ghost encounter can be on opposite sides of the world. Highly recommended!

Very Interesting. Aug. 27 2004
By Gregory DiFalco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
What makes this book better than most other "true ghost story" collections is that it offers a lot more history and background. The history sets the stage for the first-hand accounts of the many witnesses of ghosts from all over the world. The author clearly did his homework. The other great thing is that each chapter is its own story. I went to the White House chapter first because I had heard it was haunted but never knew why or who. My only complaint is that it seemed too short and didn't cover the Amityville House.

Blown Away! Aug. 26 2004
By B. L. Leffler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
There have been many books written of the same type. They don't hold a candle to this book. This book includes many obscure places that go outside the everyday constantly reported hauntings that you hear about. It also provides a very brilliantly colored painting in your mind of the location and all the details. It pulls you right into the haunting. This is the best read I have had in a very long time.
