2.0 out of 5 stars Yawner, Jan. 31 2012
This review is from: Before I Go To Sleep (Paperback)
The synopsis nothing short of brilliant but when you take away the overly flowery prose you are left reading quite a few journal entries that change very little from day to day. The book dragged on and on and on, especially after I had guessed the ending halfway through. This book would have made a fantastic short story or novella.

2.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining but lacking credibility, Jan. 1 2009
I can't say that I didn't enjoy this book because I did. I won't bother giving a synopsis as that's readily available above.

I grew very fond of the old gent that haunted the home as well as the two old fashioned sisters. I've experienced hauntings first hand and was very captivated by the author's experiences - at first.

As I read on, though, I found that the author lost credibility. The story went from an interesting haunting to Ms. Wilder's subsequent OBEs, astral dreams, multiple psychic consults, portals, recently dead from the funeral home across the street drifting through 24/7, etc. etc. By the end of the book I was expected an alien abduction as I think that's all that was left out.

I have an open mind, but I just didn't buy everything "documented" in this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Word of caution, April 15 2004
I'm giving this game four stars, only because it just seems so darned good. The only problem I've had with it is a big one - the fact that it refuses to run on my system despite downloading all the recommended patches. Small print reveals that it doesn't like certain Dell systems, although my particular Dell wasn't listed. I tried contacting the techs at the Konami help center via email giving enough system info and technical data to choke a horse. They replied quickly (1 week later) requesting more information (??), which I provided. I haven't heard back. In fact, I've emailed them again and have been completely ignored.
This seems like such a wonderful gaming experience, it's just too bad it won't play on my system. I would strongly caution against ordering this game if you happen to own a Dell system.
