True Ghost Stories and Hauntings by Barb Shadow is an otherworldly experience. Being the co-founder of the Sullivan Paranormal Society, she has a vast well of knowledge of the subject. This book has hundreds of accounts from eyewitnesses and their brush with the paranormal. We learn about the types of hauntings and suddenly you become very aware of your surroundings. From full body figures to a light touch or a disembodied voice, these stories will have you reaching for the covers. In this book, the paranormal and hauntings are approached from a logical point of view and always followed up by a personal story from Shadow herself. Some of these stories are comforting like when loved ones come back to say goodbye, but then other stories are more sinister in nature. This book takes the little of what we know about the paranormal and puts it out there for the world to see.
True Ghost Stories and Hauntings by Barb Shadow was a very exciting read. I loved how the book didn’t just consist of her experiences but so many other everyday people too. It was insightful and intriguing to read about all these different types of hauntings. To think that even animals can haunt a place sounds farfetched but sure enough, it is possible. That is what makes this book special. Nobody is made out to be crazy, and even the reader will begin to question their own experiences with the potentially paranormal. This book will leave you sleeping with the lights on, not just because some of the stories are actually scary but because it could happen to you. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves things that go bump in the night.
