Publisher's Summary

Do you think you have heard about the most haunted places in America?

Over the past five years, the interest in the paranormal has decidedly come to the forefront. People flock to locations who wish to have experiences of their own and delve into the exciting, quizzical and frightening world of those who have passed on.

When speaking about haunted places there are more than a few that are surely recognizable to most people. However, for the avid ghost teller or hunter these long told tales have almost lost their ebullience and the romance is long gone.

Discovering new haunts are like diamonds in the rough. Unchartered ghost stories and research are the crème de la crème for anyone who devours such tales.

In this audiobook, author and ghost hunter Sarah Ashley will take you on a new adventure of mysterious happenings, strange sights, horrific details of torture and torment and share with you some truly startling evidence from some of the most haunted, yet less glamorized locations across the United States.

    "Sarah Ashley, never a disappointment!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of America's Secret Hauntings to be better than the print version?

    No, I think it all depends on the listener. I enjoy being read to because I work in a factory, it keeps my mind at ease as my hands work.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of America's Secret Hauntings?

    All the narrator does a spectacular job. Sarah Ashley always goes into the best detail. She has a way of writing that makes you feel *like she is your friend*. My Favourite moment was how every story she phrases in one way or another.... * Come along with us * before we know its about to get awesome!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I love anything about the axe murder house! I love how she explained who families night prior to the murder, it really personalized them.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wish it would have gone on forever! I often don't purchase books under 6/8 hours so i have a whole shift of listening. But she was highly recommended.


    Any additional comments?

    I just want to leave saying this is not a waste of credit or money. I have pushed this book on many people and hope you love it as much as I did!

    Story
    ""macabre""

    The performance of this book is probably what bothered me the most. It jolts me from the story when certain (and in this instance, pivotal) words are mispronounced i.e. macabre. The reader's accent switches back and forth from very proper and almost mechanical vaguely british to home spun southern.
    The book itself, as some other readers have said, is more a tourist guide than ghost story, some locations have tour types and times included. Further the book seems to rely heavily on television shows as "evidence" of haunting. It seems bizarre to me to read a book rehashing tv shows. Some of the locations were interesting, but most of the stories had a big lead up with little pay off. I frequently zoned out while listening because a fair bit of the book was just boring.

    For the record, Dover is not in Germany. Amazon understood DE to be Deutschland rather than Delaware, and it doesn't want to let me change.

    "Really don't like it"
    Would you try another book from Sarah Ashley and/or Elizabeth J. Taylor?

    Not likely


    What was most disappointing about Sarah Ashley’s story?

    Reads like tourist brochures, or bad campfire stories


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Elizabeth J. Taylor?

    I doubt it would have helped.


    What character would you cut from America's Secret Hauntings?

    Not really the issue.

    Story
    "Unlistenable due to the terrible narration."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    For a start somebody else could have read it. Then I might have found out if the book was any good. After 15 minutes I couldn't listen anymore.


    Has America's Secret Hauntings put you off other books in this genre?

    A bit.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Well not having a narrater who sounds like robot doing a world tour of different English speaking accents in each sentence would have been a start. I might even have gotten used to that if the delivery was not so bizarre in it's inappropriate emphasis giving the impression that the narrater had absolutely no understanding of the meaning of what it was reading (much like a computer).


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger, sadness, disappointment, - all yes!


    Any additional comments?

    I feel like I have been ripped off.
