A Ghost Hunter's Guide to the Most Haunted Historic Sites in America - Terrance Zepke



                If you’re someone who is interested in the supernatural and also enjoys traveling, then you may want to check out this book written by journalist/parapsychologist, Terrance Zepke. This book is just one in a series of travel books called Most Haunted. I’ve previously read and enjoyed A Ghost Hunter’s Guide to the Most Haunted Places in America so I knew that I would enjoy this book as well. Ms. Zepke takes the reader on a trip across America and visits some of the most well-known haunted historic sites. It is a quick and easy read with lots of fun and entertaining facts that won’t end up boring the reader. Sometimes travel guides can be monotonous, often filled with useless information, but the author keeps things short and to the point for each site while still providing enough information about ghost sightings to keep the reader’s interest piqued. Pictures and maps are provided for each site as well as any pertinent information, such as the cost to visit the site as well as the distance and travel time to the site. At the end of the book there are some fun quizzes about the information in the book to see what the reader can remember. If I ever have the chance to visit America, I hope to see some of the sites mentioned in the book and hopefully see a ghost or two. The site’s history I was most surprised with was the Hollywood sign. I had no idea it was haunted by a young lady who committed suicide there. Of course the areas where many people were killed are full of ghosts and I’d love to visit these sites as well, as they are written about so well in the book. This book is perfect for the budding ghost hunter and I hope sometime in the future the author will write about haunted sites outside of the United States. 
                I read this in the digital format on my ereader and it formatted well. The pictures were clear and distinct. The editing in the book was also well done. The cover was quite eye catching as well. I look forward to reading more books from this series and maybe, one day in the future, I will get to experience a ghost siting at one of these places.
