Publisher's Summary

This book - which put Liverpool on the paranormal map - is about ghosts - whatever they are. Every culture has believed in ghosts at one time or another: Buddha trained himself to overcome fear by sitting in a haunted cemetery. Spooky tales are not just a contemporary phenomenon - there are several ghosts mentioned in the Old Testament. In the course of a person's lifetime, the chances of encountering a ghost are surprisingly high. Many of the stories within this book originated from the numerous letters and telephone calls Tom Slemen received from readers of his weekly newspaper column about local mysteries and also from listeners to his many radio programs about the paranormal. The tremendous response from the public is confirmation of a widespread fascination with the paranormal. In Haunted Liverpool, take a spine-chilling journey along city's streets and meet Spring-Heeled Jack, the Penny Lane Poltergeist, Bernie with the broken neck, the Grey Lady of Grove Street and many other spooky characters and unearthly beings.

The Book That Started the Popular Series

This is the first book in the popular Haunted Liverpool series. Several of the stories were later published in collection books and have lost none of their amazing details. Unlike many of the other books in this field, Tom Slemen's books are extensively researched and often verified. These true tales will astonish, delight and unsettle you. They are also highly addicting. I read this book using immersion reading while listening to the audio book. Narrator Norman Gilligan's voice is perfect for this series, refined, understated and uniquely British. A must read/listen for paranormal lovers.

Hear-say accounts and opinions, not stories

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

its like an audio version of the small paperback guides and folk tales on a local area, you pickup when you visit a place.

its not bad, just gets a bit dull after a few hours.

to be honest I have given up about halfway through it, there is only so many..... this person said, superstition says and I was told accounts.... I can stand!

What will your next listen be?

not sure.

How could the performance have been better?

it's perfectly adequate, just the subject gets a bit dull after a while.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Haunted Liverpool 1?

its not really that sort of book.

Any additional comments?

its not awful, just more of a local radio feature than an audio book
