1.0 out of 5 starsI Would Not Recommend This Book
Reviewed in the United States on August 20, 2016
This is poorly edited. It is only 132 pages. On my kindle, the bigfoot stories ended at 33%, then it went on to a self promotion of the author's other interests. The bigfoot stories were all stories that are free on the internet. When I got to the story about Matt Johnson, I knew this was not the book for me, but diligently tried to read it. Why would you end a chapter with "What would you do?" My answer, not buy another book from you. I found this very juvenile . I couldn't make it through his sections on the paranormal, it became so disjointed, I couldn't read anymore. It was almost as if the author was throwing out what ever popped in his mind. I felt like I was reading a school assignment. Very disappointed.
4.0 out of 5 starsGood Content, But Poorly Edited, & Only 44% is About Bigfoot!

Although I definitely enjoyed the paranormal themed content, most of which was both fascinating and properly spine tingling, it would be hard to imagine giving Max Mason Hunter's "True Bigfoot Stories" anything more than 4 out of 5 stars. And that's being quite generous, given that the writing is often very awkward and sometimes even downright confusing.
The author seems quite knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his chosen subject matter, but his prose could really use a good, thorough editing. In fact, many sentences in the book even give the distinct impression that Hunter isn't actually a native English speaker. Which is fine and dandy, really. As long as you have a good editor to correct your work before it gets published!
What's more, the title of the book is terribly deceptive, given that only the first 44% of the content is actually about Bigfoot and similar crytid creatures. The only saving grace in that is that the rest of the volume (a collection of lengthy book excerpts the author is quite unabashedly trying to hawk) are of somewhat better quality than the preceding Bigfoot stories.

I liked this book, do not get wrong, but the author implies that we always need to fear the bigfoot. Some people have stood up to the forest people and they have backed down. Maybe it is how you act before you meet them that dictates how they act towards you. By the way, have you heard about the incident in Russia in the fifties where hikers were killed by an enraged yeti that was scared of the government secret testing of a rockets engines.
2.0 out of 5 starsSave your time and money. Not original material. Nice try!!

Ouch!! Written to the level of high school sophomore. Maybe. Most stories are not original and there are missing details. Look at the bright side ... the writing can only get better. Two stars for better luck next time. Cheers!! ??
