I received a copy of the ePub from the Goodreads group Lovers of Paranormal (LoL) in exchange for an honest review.

Carl Jung, Hauntings, and Paranormal Coincidences by Doug Dillon is a fascinating collection of paranormal experiences from a variety of individuals including the author and Carl Jung.

This well researched nonfiction is a quick paced read as the chapters are short and draw the reader in immediately. The author’s detail to research is evident. The ‘Further Reading’ list is proof that

Fairly thinly disguised ad for the writer's other books. The Jung connection was interesting but much of the author's proof of the paranormal is weak at best.

I enjoyed the anecdotes, I would have rated it higher, if in almost every chapter, one of his other books wasn't referenced by name. Very repetitive and needless.

I have been following Doug Dillon since I was introduced to his St. Augustine trilogy.

When he told me about this book and jumped at the chance to read it as I knew it would be as great as his other books. I was right---I loved this book. I am sure that when most people think of Carl Jung, they think of psychiatry. This book talks about all types of different paranormal encounters or coincidences. They range from physical phenomena, to haunted placed, to psychics, dreams, out-of-body experiences

This was great. I took it to bed with me last night and stayed up till I had read it all. As a person who has had many paranormal experiences in my life, I'm always interested in this kind of thing, and I was delighted to win a copy of this book.
There are many different kinds of stories in this collection, from ghosts, to stories of coincidence synchronicity, and even stories of the human spirit traveling outside the body. The author does not attempt to explain, but rather shares these stories

I picked up this book after reading about Jung's philosophy of synchronicity and my (and my family's) own experiences with coincidences beyond, well, far beyond mere coincidence. There is a bit about that, but Dillon's book is primarily based on his own blog posts on chapters from a previous book, An Explosion of Being: An American Family's Journey Into the Psychic--and it shows. Chapters are very short and introductions are quite repetitious. The chapters about Jung can be found in Jung's own w ...more

. no need to stretch to maybe classify them as perhaps paranormal.

This is often 2nd-hand accounts and always "well, it COULDA been that" stories but nothing substantive. Repetitive & endlessly self-referencing. Rip-off use of Jung's name - a few anecdotal stories are included. About as interesting as a bored housewives gossip hour. No, not even that. I've had vastly more interesting experiences than are related here and have . The author should stick to young adult novels. If really interes

Shelves: first-reads
I was so excited to receive this book from a first reads giveaway. Kevin and I had planned to go on a local ghost hunt the night after I received it, so that was a fun sort of coincidence. Another one involved a chapter about the Skybridge collapse -- which I was just looking at pictures of and had read about for the first time the other day.
This book was a fun and interesting read. Do I believe in this stuff? Absolutely.

this is just my cup of tea being interested in anything a little mysterious that raises more questions than can be answered. Doug tackles the book with a warmth and humour and a real human quality in which he is honest about is own experiences and feelings. a fast paced and interesting read.

I was very intrigued by this book despite winning this here and I'll never look at the Paranormal the same way again, love the book!
