Do you believe in ghosts? Whether you are a believer or a skeptic, the stories of the supernatural in Ghosts Among Us: True Stories of Spirit Encounters will keep you riveted.

Macabre and fascinating, Ghosts Among Us offers true-life, haunting accounts of eerie visitations and paranormal experiences along with artistically shot black-and-white photographs of haunted sites. The personal, firsthand reports and chilling, full-length stories are bolstered by sidebars of actual accounts of "Ghosts in the News." Each chapter explores mysterious events-events that the reader will find hard to pass off as mere coincidence.

In her quest to uncover explanations for each incident, Leslie Rule extensively researched library archives and interviewed credible witnesses, historians, renowned psychics, and parapsychologists. Throughout Ghosts Among Us, Rule's findings are mesmerizing. She writes about being raised in a haunted house. "To top that," Rule explains, "[my mother] introduced me to a serial killer when I was fourteen." The reader is invited to skip ahead to learn about that chilling episode...but the pages prior to that offer their own gripping, spell-binding encounters.

L-A-M-E...One of the worst collections of ghost stories I have ever read. I had to force myself to finish it. Most of the stories in the book could easily be explained as natural occurrences rather than mysterious, unexplainable events. Glad I checked this one out from the library rather than purchased it. I would have been more upset if I had actually spent money on it.

This book would be great for a young teen, but definitely not adult reading. It is not very well put together and reads less like a book, and more like a travel guide on places you might want to visit for ghost stories.

I'm still reading through and though I don't have the entire book to report on I will say that the majority of what I have read is interesting enough to keep me reading, but not gripping or particularly memorable. Also, I think the genre should be reclassified under "Teen" because the author (daughter of Ann Rule, True Crime author) talks to the reader in a very non-intellectual, almost child-like way. It can be a little irritating at times. If you are looking for intelligent, adult ghost fair, you might want to skip this one.
