Книга жанра: Старинная литература, Старинная литература: Прочее. I Have Been Ghost Hunting. Cambridge has the reputation of being a city of ghosts. With its centuries’ old colleges, streets of ancient buildings and a maze of small alleyways, the spirits of the men and women who once lived and died in the area are almost tangible.

I really struggled with this book. I came to it expecting to be entertained with modern ghost stories, but found that many of them dated from the early 1900's.

Sep 20, 2008 Danielle rated it really liked it. Shelves: tidbits, non-fiction. I know what you're thinking. I really struggled with this book. Some of them were very long-winded. All was not lost however. in the near future though.

The stories themselves range from chilling to psychological, and from humorous to poignant. Overall, a compelling argument for not judging a book by its cover. Rather than emphasizing pieces featuring moaning phantoms, clanking chains and other staple but simplistic fare common to the genre, Haining sought stories heavy with eerie mood and tone. As with any anthology like this one, some vignettes are better or more effective than others.

The book was a great price and in pretty good condition for the price I was offered. It was a great deal.

Not one single one of these was outstanding. Even the stories by well-known authors (M.R. James, for example) were the ones I liked the least from their individual anthologies. I started every story with high hopes of chills and prickles, and put down the book after each with a disgusted feeling that the editors got together a selection that they knew for sure would have extremely low royalty costs. There's a good reason these stories are ones you probably haven't read before! They aren't very good !! In some cases the idea was good but the execution was poor, or the writing was good but the story itself was poor, or both. One more note - the typesetting is anything but classic, with cheesy illustrations and a distracting page of synopsis before each story. I think that was for the purpose of seeming to add value, but it didn't.
