Western ghost stories do not give me goosebumps. Having been familiar with much more frightening Eastern ghosts, theirs are nothing. hhahaha..

However, what I like best is the animal spirit stories since I love pets. It kinda remind me of my own experience of dreaming and feeling the afterlife existence of my beloved pet, a German Shepherd cross breed, who had been my company when I was 3 to 13. Now I know that he had gone to a better place and that he will always be in the special place of my he

Every now and then I have a desire to read the book about true ghost stories. I don't know why, because I'm not sure if I actually believe in ghosts – I've had a few strange experiences myself.

This book is composed almost entirely of reader-submitted stories so it obviously the writing is hit or miss. The stories themselves range from stupid, unbelievable or boring to poignant, thought-provoking and beautiful (real or not). The stories are very short for the most part, so it can be fun to just pick up and have a quick read here and there. Overall, it's certainly not a 'great' book, but I was entertained by it and did enjoy reading it.

I only read through 40 pages before it all felt so monotonous that I was ready to move on.

Like a paranormal chicken soup for the soul. Really lame.....would rather just watch paranormal state or celebrity ghost stories on the sci fi channel. Crap, did I really just admit that I watch those?

It's a great read near Halloween! It's a compilation of stories. Some of them are really good and others fall short. It's an easy read.
