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.
