    One thought on “Phantom Encounters”

    1. The photography in this book is amazing and the text takes readers down a strange path. I love that the Time-Life people included so many different places and times in this collection. Those strange encounters have been a round for a long time.

    2. Okay, this hole series feels a bit juvenile, big glossy pictures taking up a lot of space, as if we would find too much reading tiresome. But apart from this ongoing problem, I kind of liked the "scientific" approach of this one. It's not just a row of spooky tails, but an attempt to see the subject the way "psychical researchers" do, and have done for more than a century. If they have gotten anywhere is a matter of opinion of course. 3,5 stars I'd say.

    3. Almost too scientific, it not only looks at the stories behind the hauntings, but whether the hauntings are really independent of the person seeing and experiencing the haunting. The photo essays and short articles in the book were most interesting. If you are interested more in the mechanics of haunting this would be a good choice. If however you are looking for a scary story of real ghosts, then parts of the book will prove too technical.

    4. This book includes a bunch of ghost stories, each only a few paragraphs long. It is not a memorable book. No one ever helps the ghosts cross over.Disappointing.
