Summary

I interview my neighbors in our shockingly haunted town Wellesley, Massachusetts and I transcribe their tales for my blog Ghosts in the Burbs. Three women told me a horrific tale from their past and in doing so involved me in their horror. You may have heard part of this story before but I didn't tell you everything.... This is the complete story of Claire.

WHAT THA F#!%!!...LOL

Hey Liz,
I LOVE this book. I listened to it in one sitting. (well pausing it when my family needed something...) I listened to your podcast as well in like 4-5 days from the very beginning. It's so awesome to hear this all together. At times I had the exact reaction you did to the experiences your neighbors/friends/witches had.
Thanks for the scare Liz. I know this will be a repeat audible and of course your podcast.
Goodnight and I wont forget my nightlight!

Most of this story is in the podcast

... but it is still awesome! I love Liz's voice and couldn't imagine anyone else narrating.

Just listen to the podcast for free

I really really really liked Ghosts in the Burbs. I downloaded Claire because I thought that it would have much more story. It really doesn’t though. And it simply ends when I know that the story continues with Claire and Liz. I’m pretty disappointed to be honest. I will say though that if you’re not into listening to podcasts this is a good stand alone entry point to Ms. Sower’s work, though you will be dissatisfied with the random “the end” that comes in the middle of a scene. Overall I liked the story even though I’d heard it all already in the podcast, it just feels unfinished.

I don't think I am the target audience

this felt to me like a "friends" paranormal soap opera. I couldn't like any of the characters, even the narrator. Each of the characters appeared to be overly self indulged.

wonderful gem

I have never listened to the podcast and heard the ghostess of Two Girls One Ghost podcast mention this book and Liz's podcast. I made it to the book first. the audiobook is worth the money! The story is intriguing and I can't wait until the next installment!!

might as well not

it's a good story. I enjoyed it alot. just one major problem. other than Claire's thoughts at the begining of the chapters, there's not much new here. a few little additions here and there sure and a cleaner recording but it is almost word for word what was already on the podcast. I read this book expecting some sort of conclusion to the story. I thought Liz would give us some information on what exactly Claire and Tom would do but instead it leaves off with an open almost cliffhanger like vibe. overall I'm pleased with the story and if you're not into listening to the podcast then this is a good one off version of it but i really do think you might as well listen to the podcast and you can prolly either skip the book or just listen to the parts you havent heard at the starts and near ends of each chapter. I love Lizs podcast so I hate to write a review like this but I also have to be honest. I love her work but the podcast version of this provides way more context and alot of the same narrative just without small tidbits like how it affected Chris and Claire's thoughts.
tldr: its fine for extra context on the podcast but ultimately didn't deliver much new content.

Love the podcast, love the book. Wish there was more!

I’m writing this a bit biased because I love the podcast. I’ve read other reviews saying this is more of a retelling and quite a bit of it is included in the podcast, maybe 80%, but having the story in one book form is very enjoyable and there was new material tying more things in. I really wish there was a part 2, I want to hear more about Claire and Liz’s adventures even beyond the podcast!

LOVE Liz Sower

Liz Sower hands down writes the best spooky but fun stories. Her writing is relatable and down to earth but also so spooky and down right hilarious. Love her work!

I love Liz Sower

I could listen to Liz's voice forever, as a matter of fact, I ended up listening g to Claire after I consumed Ghosts in the Burbs.
