Summary

For over 30 years, in his position as President and Chief Investigator of the Ghost Club of Great Britain, Peter Underwood was actively involved in undertaking night vigils and carrying out research into ghosts and paranormal activity in controlled, scientific conditions. This volume presents accounts of nights spent in haunted houses - and the folklore and violent past associated with them.

Findings include the headless Blue Lady, the disturbing inexplicable odour of lavender of Bovey House in Devon; the happy spirits monk of Bromfield Manor, Shropshire, who chuckles with delight when noticed; and the strange disembodied voices, footsteps and unnatural coldness of Newark Park, Gloucestershire.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

My 4 year old niece would be a better narrator

Enjoyable, cosy and informative book by the doyen of ghost hunters but the narrator veered between monotonous, laughably amateurish, semi-illiterate and if aloud would have been embarrassing. I can't believe this is being portrayed as a professional production. At points she sounds out words and names akin to a child learning to read. At other points she mispronounced words entirely adding letters as non-existant as some of the spooks. The high point was surely how she enunciates 'Langenhoe' three different ways within one chapter. Unbelievable.

The Most Boring Book I've Ever Downloaded

This book is so dull it's even hard to sleep to. This should not be categorised in Horror.
