The Ghost-Hunter’s Handbook by Herbie Brennan

Stars: ***1/2

This book was read as part of the R.I.P. II challenge. It was an extra book.

I’m glad I got to this book. It was a good book, but I rated it 3 1/2 stars because it wasn’t what I would want in a ghost-hunting manual. Most of it was about different kinds of ghosts and lots of case stories. Although I imagine you would need to know about types of ghosts to be a ghost-hunter I do think more information would be needed on actually looking for ghosts. There was a section on making and using some tools to find ghosts but there should have been much more. This book was more of a guide to types of ghosts.

That said, it was very interesting and I enjoyed the stories. Many books talk about ghosts and poltergeists but not many seem to talk about grey ladies and astral travelling and time phantoms. These were really interesting.
