Book Review - A Ghost Hunter's Guide to The Most Haunted Places in America

About the Book 
America is full of haunted places. Find out why these fifteen places were selected as THE MOST HAUNTED. Each chapter is laid out in an easy-to-read format and includes a detailed and fascinating history and documented paranormal activities. The book contains thirty photographs, lots of fun facts, and visitor information. This includes addresses, tips, accessibility, and websites. Discover the history and ghosts who haunt these places: Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum...where experimental lobotomies were performed. Moon River Brewing Company...learn why no one is allowed to go to the top floor where the ghost resides. Shanghai Tunnels...where men and women were kidnapped and forced into servitude. Pirates' House...where pirate ghosts still demand rum. Ohio State Reformatory...even though it has been closed for a long time, some prisoners remain incarcerated here. ...and much more!

My Take on the Book 
This book was full of so many great facts and figures as well as photos of some truly scary looking places. While I have not visited any of these places, after reading this I am more apt to seek them out, especially with a daughter that loves scary things. The book was well written, short and to the point, but the author does not leave out any detail. She does a great job at describing the locations completely and gives you as a reader a clear glimpse into what you can expect (or not expect) when you visit these locations. It was well written and for anyone who loves haunted places, this is definitely the book for you!
