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.

"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.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
