My Thoughts: First of all, I would just like to thank Jamie for contacting me about this book and then being kind enough to send me a signed copy of it to read. I loved it! Being somebody who has had personal paranormal experiences and believes in this stuff I found this book to be really good! It was cool to read about the flashlight sessions they did and what they got to experience while visiting these places. It makes me want to get back into the ghost hunting myself. Reading the histories of the places they visited was amazing, I love learning the histories of old prisons and asylums and learning what went on there and what lead to the places being closed down. It’s hard not to feel sorry for the people in the asylums who were just treated so poorly for no reason at all. It was a good and interesting read that’s for sure. If you are interested in this kind of thing I would HIGHLY recommend checking this book out.
