The idea was there and he clearly has passion for his work but... There was no flow, logic, or readability here. A solid editor would have stepped up and pointed out that just throwing a bunch of anecdotes into a mish-mash order does not constitute a book. Especially if you want to be considered legit and claim this is a collection of your strangest cases (hint, I've told stranger things on the ghost tours that I guide in my home town.).

The stories were difficult to follow. They were also more like interviews or third person accounts. Just not my thing.

Although the stories had interesting parts the overall quality of the book was very poor. I am an avid reader and love the paranormal but the manner in which this was written is so dry and boring I could barely get through it. I was mating reading 3-5 pages a day when normally I read 50+. There was no attention grabbing quality that made this book hard to put down.

This collection of stories of Holzer's ghostly encounters records all kinds of stories of different kinds of ghosts. True ghost stories are much less gripping than fantasy, unfortunately. The accounts aren't overly gripping or dramatic, though they are interesting, as are his theories about the nature of ghosts.

Hans Holzer, whose investigations into the paranormal took him to haunted houses and other sites all over the world, wrote more than 140 books on ghosts, the afterlife, witchcraft, extraterrestrial beings, and other phenomena associated with the realm he called “the other side.” Among his famous subjects was the Long Island house that inspired The Amityville Horror book and film adaptations.
