    Story
    "Vintage ghosts"

    When you grow up in a haunted house, as I did, it leaves an impression. Especially on house guests. I started reading Holzer when I was a small child to help me make sense of what we lived with in that house. Whether it was a ghost, "leave-behind," energy imprint, or a grand mass delusion, he helped me come to terms with the fact that not everything can be explained, nor does the unexplained need to be feared.

    Holzer had an usual gift for combining the "unheimlich" with the "gemütlich." Perhaps only a Viennese gentleman could pull that off! He always gave the impression that he was sincere and honest. He was not a trickster but a seeker. With a gift for friendship and writing, he told it as he saw it. Even though I don't agree with everything he believed or did, I respect him for his spirit and courage.

    This little collection is filled with stories ranging from a bayberry-scented apparition in the home of a conservative banker in Philadelphia to a premonition of death given to a striptease artist on the night train to Zurich and so much else. Whether you believe the stories or not, they'll give you something to think about.

    Story
    "Amazing collection, and a great narrator !!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely the stories are so well detailed and give you real insights to the situations and people involved.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gothic Ghosts?

    I dont want to give any spoilers. but truly every story has a great moment with all the research involved.


    Which character – as performed by Jim Tedder – was your favorite?

    I love when he narrates the females I feel a lot of men have a hard time "feeling out" a woman's emotions through words. he was spot on.


    If you could give Gothic Ghosts a new subtitle, what would it be?

    A amazing collections of ghost stories you HAVE NOT heard yet . :)


    Any additional comments?

    I just think this book is worth your credit and or the full price. I will be re-listening again and again ! thank you!

    Story
    "Worthless"

    The narrator read like a fifth grader giving a book report. The stories have more fiction than fact to them...I did some research. I wanted to sit through a root canal without painkillers.

    Story
    "Fascinating and reverent from the Godfather of Par"

    A good performance from a book straight from the Godfather of Parapsychology. I think he may have invented ghosts :-)
    In all seriousness, This man genius knows few boundaries and he's truly fearless, curious and observant. If you like a non bias scientific approach to the paranormal it's for you. Just the facts!
