If you love a good ghost story like I do, this is definitely one for you. Parks delves into the real world of the things that go bump in the night. In her introduction, she talks about her extensive experience with the spirit world. She describes the spirit world as “rarely malevolent,” and so unlike our fiction phantoms. She briefly describes her struggle with her clairvoyant abilities, and the necessity for each of us to open our minds to the greater possibilities out there.
The book is divided into chapters with each one dedicated to a single entity. Most have specific names, but the first chapter is simply “Night of the Poltergeist.” In it, she talks about the frighteningly unpredictable nature of these pesky spirits. There’s an incredibly creepy description of a house that would make Henry James proud it’s so haunted. There are a lot of wonderful details about paranormal experiences, real life ghost hunting, and quite a few just unexplained creepy events. Her ghostly encounters run the gamut from children (cold spots and all), to dead actors in a haunted theater.
If you love fictitious ghost stories, this is a fantastic dip into the real world side of the paranormal. For the true ghost hunter fans out there, Parks delivers time and time again. Her descriptions will make the hair stand up on the back of your neck and goosebumps crawl down your arm. Something for a roaring fire around Halloween to give you a scare.
