it was ok
Read from May 14 to June 08, 2012

The book contains 25 scary destinations in 25 chapters. Out of those 25, only 5 take place in the USA. Now, I get it the book is titled “WORLD’s” Creepiest Places. But I assumed there would be more taking place in the USA. Why is this a big deal to me? Well, in my experience, when a scary story takes place in another country it usually takes place anywhere between the 1500’s - 1900 and includes in depth history lessons with tons of names of people and places I just cannot retain.

Out of the 25 stories I only enjoyed a handful. By the time I got to the end of the book I skimmed over a couple of the chapters because I just had lost all interest.

While the writing and stories are good, they just did not interest me, and for that alone I’m giving it the rating I’m giving it.
