Summary

The Ouija board continues to be a popular means of entertainment for a wide variety of people: paranormal thrill-seekers, adventurous adolescents, temperamental teens, tipsy party guests, and even curious skeptics. Most of the time, those who dabble with the Ouija experience nothing out of the ordinary. But many times that's not the case. And many times that extraordinary experience isn't just strange, but downright awful.

Ouija Board Nightmares takes a look at some of those terrifying experiences, which range from nightmarish manifestations to outright physical assaults. The author's intention is to inform and engage, but primarily to warn. While the Ouija board may be marketed as a harmless game, it is indeed neither. If the accounts in this book don't convince you of that, then nothing will.

middle of the road. enjoyable but not amazing

the stories within this book are a little too short. I feel like a little of what occurred after the alleged fact took place would bump the rating up a little.

it is a short book and as such you never feel like you are having to sink huge amounts of time in to it. and I finished it within a day mostly while on I was on the treadmill at the gym.

the narrator at times elongated the words for no apparent reason. however overall not bad at all.

Not The Best But Would Recommend

This book is filled with factual and useful information. Each example consists of a few paragraphs which are very comprehensive and leave no time for a person to lose interest. These examples are divided into chapters which grow in intensity as the book progresses. Remember, the entire book is just about 2 hours in length and the author does a good job of only using one chapter for introduction and the rest for actual stories and experiences of people using the boards and their results. It is not written with the same attention to detail as The Demonologist; it is more of a collection of short stories. I have only two complaints regarding the listening experience. First, the author seemed to end almost each story with some version of “they will never do it again.” That was tiresome after about the first ten stories. The second is the narrator. I dislike criticizing voiceover artists because I know, from experience; it is not an easy job. This guy just sounded rather plastic. That being said, the information in the book is well-researched, knowledgeable, and is something many teenagers, not to mention adults, would do well to read.

Interesting, with some scary parts!

This book is a bunch of very short "true" stories about Quija board incidents. There are some that are scary, and some that are not so scary. Pretty much every story ends with "and they swore they would never touch a board again".

Eh... it was ok, I guess...

I didnt think the stories were that scary. They were a little dull and mostly predictable. I would skip over this one if I were you...

Decent book but as is the case with a lot of audible books, poor choice of narrator

The book was decent. Other than the fact (mentioned by a lot of posters) that every story ends with “and they never touched a ouija board again, it’s very well written, though I kind of wished they’d focused on fewer stories and given more detail. With that said whether you believe in this type of thing or not, it’s VERY hard to take seriously given the infomercial-style of the narrator. It’s like when I red JFK’s book PT-109 & they had his thick New England accent read by a backwoods Texan sounding guy. They’ve gotta do a better job

Just What the Title Says

This was a very scary collection of scary encounters with Ouija boards. Never use one for any reason. This book gives you a number of stories, many of which don’t end well. Many of the participants had no idea about the dangers involved and wound up paying much higher prices than they expected. The narrator was great, his voice was clear and the stories were fascinating.

The Kind of Stories You Can Scare your Kids With

Where does Ouija Board Nightmares rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I love the content, it's entertaining however I'm disappointed with the audio a little bit. The speaker is very mono-tone and almost robotic so it was hard to get engaged with it because it was putting me to sleep. After I got passed the first chapter, the content made a big difference.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I enjoyed Chapter 5 a lot.

What does Michael E. Smith bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Too early for me to say...

If you could give Ouija Board Nightmares a new subtitle, what would it be?

This is pretty exact, I wouldn't change it.

Any additional comments?

This book needs a new reader. Please.

An Interesting Collection of Short Stories

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this to a friend, or anyone, looking for an interesting collection of urban legends/anecdotes involving the paranormal and Ouija Boards. The book is a very quick read which can be listened to in a single sitting.

Would you be willing to try another book from John Harker? Why or why not?

The book was not quite what I expected. I'm not sure how reliable these "true tales" actually are, however, it was an enjoyable book, and I would consider getting another in the series.

What about Michael E. Smith’s performance did you like?

Michael E. Smith's performance was adequate. It wasn't the best performance, but it certainly wasn't the worst either.

If you could give Ouija Board Nightmares a new subtitle, what would it be?
