Not bad as true ghost stories go but not much of a travel guide. Most of the buildings were not open to the public so they couldn't be visited without calling ahead and hoping that the owner wasn't sick and tired of ghost hunters. Readers weren't even told where some of them were because the owners wanted privacy. Some of the buildings had already been sold by the time the book was written; the old owners gave the author information but the new owners didn't want visitors. Add that to the ghosts...more

A fun and creepy armchair road-trip.

A true ghost story book for any reader. I read this book when I was in high school and it scared me to death! I think that was the author's goal, though. It was my first true ghost story book which led me on to many more since then.

Really good, except for the fact that my copy seemed to be missing a small chunk.
