Mr. Van Praagh's focus here is to explain how HE perceives the world of ghosts around him. It's a little self-important, and he's not the best narrator. The last 1/3 of the book is info about how to become psychically grounded and what you need to go "ghost-hunting." If you are looking for individual ghost stories, (like I was), there aren't too many to be found in this book.
Twists and turns, and ending I didn't expect.
Well, it is much like Gillian Flynn's other work, which is diverse and amazing.
I've never heard these narrators before, but they did a fine job conveying mood and tone.
It drags a bit at some parts, but is overall a great story.
There were many Irish colloquialisms and/or slang that I don't think I would have understood if reading it in print. Listening to the reader's tone in context made them understandable. And it sounds to me like he is more than a narrator; he's a voice actor.
It made me laugh at many points, and also feel nostalgic for my youth. The author has a great ability to make the reader to visualize the characters in the past.
I would try another book from Mary Downing Hahn, but not one narrated by Jeffrey Cummings. His narration interfered with the story for me. Each time he voiced a female character, he sounded nasal and silly.
The book was worth it, if you can separate the story from the narration.
This is an interview, not an audiobook. It is a badly recorded, difficult to hear interview between the author and the owner of the Ram Inn. Some parts might have been interesting if I could have understood what was being said, but I couldn't. It was like watching an episode of "Ghost Hunters" on a fuzzy TV channel with no picture. I don't know how this can be sold on Audible as an audiobook.
