Publisher's Summary

Incredible? Impossible? Someone, somewhere has sworn that each of these nine terrifying tales is true... Strange, unexplained 'spirit stones' haunt a remote Australian farmstead. The horrifying apparition of a young girl avenges her own murder. A restless mummy walks abroad on Hallowe'en... Look at the facts and decide for yourself: do you believe in ghosts?

A fun listen

Liked the history discussed in this book and the spiritualism movement of the 19th century. Interesting stories, some I have heard some I did not know.

Other Reviewers Found this Chilling and Scary???

Would you try another book from Terry Deary and/or Denica Fairman?

Not unless I need something to put me to sleep.

What do you think your next listen will be?

My next listen will be a novel or anthology of novelists.

What three words best describe Denica Fairman’s performance?

Beautiful lilting British (voice that sang me to sleep)

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from True Ghost Stories?

You couldn't do it, because many of the stories are between 1-3 minutes long.

Any additional comments?

I love a good ghost story, and if they are supposedly true, my interest is that much more piqued, unfortunately, this was a let down. There are many, many stories, all preceded by the narrator with a number, and as stated above between 1-3 minutes. I felt like we were gossiping rather than storytelling (did you hear?? oh my! let me tell you!).Pass. I won't be listening to any further additions to this series.

"Alleged 'true' stories from eyewitness accounts"

If you could sum up True Ghost Stories in three words, what would they be?

Really Good Fun

What did you like best about this story?

That the author tells the stories and lets the reader decide how credible they are.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

N/A

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

Yes, but I was able to break it up into sections.

Any additional comments?

Obviously aimed at younger readers i.e. 8-14 years but I still found this enjoyable as an adult. Just wish it was longer.
