For those of you who are interested in the paranormal, I have just TWO suggestions as far as guidebooks on places you may want to visit. This book, The World’s Most Haunted Places by Jeff Belanger, falls into my second place slot. First place goes to NatGeo’s Guide to the World’s Supernatural Places, which is a gigantic glossy hardback color-photo guide book. It pretty much as everything. This book, however, focuses on just a one or two places from different parts of the world that are considered the ‘most haunted’.
There are 33 chapters in this book and each chapter covers a different haunted location. Among the most infamous are: The Catacomb Museum, The White House, The 1891 Castle Inn, The RMS Queen Mary, The Whaley House, The Tower of London, Aokigahara Jukai, and the Waverly Hills Sanatorium. It’s definitely a good read to anyone looking to plan a haunted vacation or a paranormal investigation. The accounts are all written really well, including history of the locations and in some cases personal experiences of the author. But, there is the downside to there only being a select number of entries, and that most of them are in America or Europe. Overall, it’s a pretty easy and interesting read, and well worth the money. It gets a 4/5 from me.
