If the truth is to be told, this book doesn’t fall into my usual reads.

The book was handed to me by a relative as a general interest kind of read, as something she thought I might enjoy. It was interesting, I will say that, but I cannot see myself going out of my way to read it again and again or to read that many more books like it.

It was simply something different to pick up and read.

I read this one and The Paranormal Caught On Film during my lunch break at work and have quickly forgotten which books had what in it, so I'm putting the same review for both. They are by the same company, in the same format, same layout, etc. While both books are a spooky fun time, so many of the photos were obvious manipulations or double exposures or someone painting on the negative etc. It got frustrating to see some good ones mixed in with the dross. At least one of the photos is a pretty f ...more

Another book about ghosts caught on photos. This one is divided into the following sections: Ghostly Figures, Ethereal Presences, Heavenly Visions, Into the Physical Realm, Ghosts in the House and Trick of Light. There is also a section on how to spot a fake.

As with the other books in the Ghost Caught on Film 1, 2 and 3, most of the material is taken from the larger book Ghost Photos.

From the last section it's obvious that the author is quite willing to point out that some of the photos take ar

Ghosts Caught on Film 2 is a collection of photographs and webcam grabs of ghosts and other apparitions that are not easily explained, along with explanations of where the photo came from and some history on who took the photo. Some of the photos in the book I've seen before, some are new to me. While this book probably is not for everyone, as I'm sure not everyone believes in the possibility of the supernatural, these types of books are a true guilty pleasure for me and I really enjoyed this on ...more

This is a collection of the most realistic ghostly photographs. I had issue believing most of them because the author himself showed skepticism and admitted that most were found on the Internet. Some seemed outrightly manipulated to seem ghostly.

Nevertheless, I had a hard time keeping my overactive imagination at bay when I flipped through the photographs alone in the dark.

It is separated into seven chapters:
1. Ghostly Figures
2. Ethereal Presences
3. Heavenly visions
4. Into the Physical Realm

There were a few genuinely intriguing and disturbing pictures in this, though others were more easy to dismiss. The chapter on religious images/icons was ridiculous. I mean, a cloud that vaguely looks like a cross? A stain on a wall that if you look at it the right way it looks a little like Jesus? they were stupid. It's hard to imagine people getting worked up over such things, and I don't know why those pics were even in a book that was supposed to be "GHOST" photos. That knocked a whole star ...more

Wow... Either the CGI with faking photos has really improved or... Well, there isn't an or. Great book, good for Halloween and full of fascinating pictures as well as great stories go to along with them. I really enjoy how the author/editor added bits about his/her skepticism regarding the validity of the photographs. Makes me want to go through my box o' photos at home just to check...

This is the first "ghosts on film" book I read and i loved it! It is a great coffee table book, and there isn't just ghosts featured, but all sorts of paranormal phenomena. And while, yes, some may be available on the internet, not all are readily accessible and it is a great easy read. Probably my favorite one of the series.

While this isn't a "novel" it is a fantastic collection of photographs and information to accompany them. Be it about the photographer and what prompted it or information about the legends. Some of these photo's are probably fake but many of them... Well I've taken photo's similar and they're not fake.

All in all it's nice for a quick read... And if you wanna be a little spooked.

Interesting to see all the pictures of "spirits" that have been taken over the years. Some are obviously faked but there are some that kind of spooky.
