Review

This is a fantastic book with creepy locations from around the world.  In here you will find photos and information about some fascinating places and some interesting stories that will both thrill and chill.  It is a bit spooky and provides overviews of places that are connected to the occult and I must warn you that it is a bit graphic and not all photographs are suitable for children. For those reasons I wouldn’t consider it “family friendly”.  However, it is a well constructed book that provides the right atmosphere in each section while being very informative.  If you are fan of spooky places, you will like this book and it will give you plenty of ideas for travel.
