** spoiler alert ** Personally, when I read books about hauntings, I am hoping that the things mentioned are at least faintly realistic. It adds to the spookiness. Some of the stories in this book are absurd or have contradictions. In one story, she mentions that people heard footsteps from above, but no one was ever allowed in the attic and in the very next story about the same house, people claimed to have been in the attic, where they saw a ghost. One story is about an eerie painting and a man who claims that the image left the painting and was a real ghost in front of him! Not exactly a credible sighting and it doesn't build faith about the rest of the stories. So, while not a horrible book, this book is probably decent as a camp-fire-scary-story book as opposed to a possibly realistic book of hauntings. There were some stories that worked though.
