    Informative but not pushyWhat I liked about this book was that the author states her opinions and a very matter of fact way however is not pushing you to believe one way or the other In fact she mentions that certain noises that we hear and some of the bumps in the night have very plausible explanations I really appreciate that from the author.The stories of her experiences are very well written and paint a clearer picture for the reader to see exactly what the author was seeing at that poi Informative but not pushyWhat I liked about this book was that the author states her opinions and a very matter of fact way however is not pushing you to believe one way or the other In fact she mentions that certain noises that we hear and some of the bumps in the night have very plausible explanations I really appreciate that from the author.The stories of her experiences are very well written and paint a clearer picture for the reader to see exactly what the author was seeing at that point in time.However, once again I have to ask Llewellyn Publishing what is going on with the formatting for the books The Kindle version that I received from Netgalley was very scattered with misspellings and letters and words missing and the pages were scrambled I really hope that once they go through the final draft that these errors are fixed I m almost certain that they are.Besides that, this was an all around good read and very informative I d be glad to recommend it

    Right off the bat, the author built up some solid respect in my eyes by discussing her own paranormal experiences and going into some detail regarding the equipment she d be using and her own fail safes in place to avoid false readings, etc I like that you could see she took it very seriously, and that feeling continued throughout the book there were some cases in which she even readily admitted they didn t find any conclusive evidence, and in one case, she explained that she could only detail Right off the bat, the author built up some solid respect in my eyes by discussing her own paranormal experiences and going into some detail regarding the equipment she d be using and her own fail safes in place to avoid false readings, etc I like that you could see she took it very seriously, and that feeling continued throughout the book there were some cases in which she even readily admitted they didn t find any conclusive evidence, and in one case, she explained that she could only detail the homeowner s explanation as the homeowner had asked her not to investigate the property for risk of stirring up trouble.All in all, I thought it was solid on the technical aspect As someone who strongly believes in paranormal phenomenons, some books of this type have left me feeling annoyed or belittled, as though the author didn t really believe in what they were saying, and was just looking to make a quick buck Robin Strom never makes the reader feel as though she s anything less than sincere, though.Overall, if you enjoy nonfiction about paranormal events and investigations, I strongly recommend picking up a copy of On the Hunt for the Haunted, and I know I ll be recommending this one to friends for a long time to come Thank you so much to the publisher for providing me with this ARC in exchange for an honest review

    My biggest complaint about this book was the formatting, and since this is the third book I ve gotten from this publisher that had terrible formatting, I have to blame Llewellyn Publications and not the author The writing is solid, the stories interesting The author doesn t pile on the evidence and proclaim that everything is haunted I m still skeptical about dowsing rods, but found their usage interesting But the horrible formatting just made things so hard to read I hope by the time the My biggest complaint about this book was the formatting, and since this is the third book I ve gotten from this publisher that had terrible formatting, I have to blame Llewellyn Publications and not the author The writing is solid, the stories interesting The author doesn t pile on the evidence and proclaim that everything is haunted I m still skeptical about dowsing rods, but found their usage interesting But the horrible formatting just made things so hard to read I hope by the time they get to publication date that Llewellyn gets the formatting issues taken care of I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book given to me by the publisher, via NetGalley

    I would like to thank Llewellyn Worldwide, Ltd for providing me with a free temporary electronic ARC of this book, via Netgalley Although I required their approval, the decision to read this book is my choice and any reviews given are obligation free.As part of my open and honest nature I will state here and now that I am a bit of a TV junkie for shows like Haunting Australia and The Other Side from Canada Heck, I am even a fan of the Canadian Knock Knock Ghost and not afraid to adm I would like to thank Llewellyn Worldwide, Ltd for providing me with a free temporary electronic ARC of this book, via Netgalley Although I required their approval, the decision to read this book is my choice and any reviews given are obligation free.As part of my open and honest nature I will state here and now that I am a bit of a TV junkie for shows like Haunting Australia and The Other Side from Canada Heck, I am even a fan of the Canadian Knock Knock Ghost and not afraid to admit it This follows on from my childhood and teen years of loving to read any tales of real life ghostly encounters I could get my hands on Remember folks, this was before the time of the Internet so books on such topics were hard to find Which is why I really wanted to read On the Hunt for the Haunted.And I LOVED it I think what I liked the most was the level of true scepticism that went into each investigation As in, they were going into each house building with an open mind, but a rather large dose of logic and science They wanted to find true supernatural interactions, but weren t about to jump to a positive conclusion based on slim to no evidence I have to admit that s the part of the ghost hunting TV shows I don t like They are usually rather biased into proving there are spirits there as that s what gets the ratings So, by detailing these investigations in a book, the author has the ability be less biased and sensationalistic and add some good doses of reality and lack of evidence to even out their stories and, to me, make thembelievable.Oh, and yes, I do believe in ghosts and spirits I have had too many odd encounters to NOT believe But I am still a child born to science as well as fiction and so like to seek logical reasons behind such events And I feel On the Hunt for the Haunted gives some very sage advice and explanations that don t rule out a spirit world but also don t ram it down the readers throat saying they have to believe it or else.I will say, however, that I found the transcripts a little tedious in the end I totally understand why they were used, but it would have been better if used in a book that was companion to a TV show of the same investigations I also got a little frustrated in how the author would go off on tangent, mid investigation, to give the reader a minor lecture in studies into the afterlife and ghost sightings that weren t always that relevant to the investigation It seemed like paddingthan in context information and I admit I almost nodded off at one point, as it detracted from the investigation so much.But other than those very minor quibbles, I still found On the Hunt for the Haunted a very interesting and enjoyable read.Formatting and layout side of things, there were a few sentences that were a bit garbled and areas I feel the copyeditor may have also fallen asleep, as they shouldn t have gotten through but I was reading an ARC so I am sure they have all since been fixed up in the final edit I also read this book as an ACSM and do not feel it was formatted for this,to be a paper book So the formatting wasn t that easy to read in places, but again I felt this was just an ARC issue and the final book wouldn t have these issues.Would I recommend this book to others Yes I would Anyone interested in paranormal investigations or insights to the spirit world trying to make contact with the living, or even those who are sceptical of it all and want ascientific approach to it all I feel this would be a good book to read and one I would recommend.Would I buy this book for myself I might, but I m really not too sure I mean, I enjoyed reading it but I can t see myself needing to refer back to it or read again in a hurry So it might be deemeda library book for me One I can borrow and read, then return for someone else I feel I must emphasise it is a very interesting and well written, well investigated book I just don t know if I feel a need to own my own copy.In summary A well balanced and scientific look into paranormal activity in the USA

    On The Hunt for the Haunted Searching for Proof of the Paranormal by Robin Strom was a fun book to read for this believer in ghosts I lived in a haunted house, so I come from a position of belief, anyways However, I usually laugh at the so called paranormal investigation TV shows They are obviously staged and I used to watch them to catch them out However, Robin Strom is not that type of investigator and I appreciated her seriousness and approach to ghost hunting in this book.First, I m On The Hunt for the Haunted Searching for Proof of the Paranormal by Robin Strom was a fun book to read for this believer in ghosts I lived in a haunted house, so I come from a position of belief, anyways However, I usually laugh at the so called paranormal investigation TV shows They are obviously staged and I used to watch them to catch them out However, Robin Strom is not that type of investigator and I appreciated her seriousness and approach to ghost hunting in this book.First, I must say I realize the book was an ARC from NetGalley and Llewellyn Publications and I appreciate that However, I feel it is a disservice to the author that the book was presented with many formatting issues that made it difficult, and in some spots, impossible, to read I hope the author gets a new company for future publications In the parts of the book I could read, her skill at telling a tale with a sense of humor shines through.It was refreshing to read that Robin does not believe that everything is haunted and she always does multiple investigations on site along with research She also doesn t use psychics on her investigations, either She presents what she and her team experience or not in a straight forward and clear manner She also presents her theories on how places or people become haunted and what equipment she uses or doesn t use, and why.I do have to take some points away for the boring transcript style results she uses for some of the cases I feel the author could have presented the final thoughts in ainteresting way While I was reading the book, I could sense the author s great sense of humor and I wish the book containedof her witty thoughts.The other point I hope the author addresses in upcoming books maybe this was corrected in the published edition I hope so was how did the author get interested in ghost hunting She should start the book off with this, I feel She makes a brief mention of watching Ghost Hunters on TV as inspiration I used to like this show, too, until I saw a so called apparition in one of the many jail investigations wearing sneakers Overall, this is a good book for aspiring ghost hunters or to read about real live haunted houses I did not find it scary at all, but then again, I lived it.I rate this book 3 5 stars

    I was pleasantly surprised by how much I ended up enjoying this book So many of the books that fall into this category end up being nothing but silliness, and I thought this one was uniquely honest instead The author doesn t make overblown claims about her and her team s experiences and was good at conveying her feelings to her readers I didn t get the sense that the author was trying to fool her readers into believing anything particularly extraordinary, but that she was giving an honest cou I was pleasantly surprised by how much I ended up enjoying this book So many of the books that fall into this category end up being nothing but silliness, and I thought this one was uniquely honest instead The author doesn t make overblown claims about her and her team s experiences and was good at conveying her feelings to her readers I didn t get the sense that the author was trying to fool her readers into believing anything particularly extraordinary, but that she was giving an honest count of her experiences This turned out be a really interesting book with a lot to recommend it If you are curious about the supernatural, you should give it a shot There were parts of it that really made me think about the possibilities of things we have yet to discover This review is based on a copy provided through Netgalley All opinions are my own

    Robin doesn t try and big up her findings at any point during this book If all she heard was a sigh, then she states that s all she heard There are no over dramatics of made up parts to try and capture the reader s attentionat least, that s the impression I got The investigations she s chosen to include are really attention grabbing for me I especially like the one that the cover depiction is based on I feel like that investigation in itself has movie potential.I usually read in bed Robin doesn t try and big up her findings at any point during this book If all she heard was a sigh, then she states that s all she heard There are no over dramatics of made up parts to try and capture the reader s attentionat least, that s the impression I got The investigations she s chosen to include are really attention grabbing for me I especially like the one that the cover depiction is based on I feel like that investigation in itself has movie potential.I usually read in bed at night, lights off But I did find myself having to put the book down a couple of times as my mind would start to wander, and I would get chills down my spine
