    1. this book is crap. it's like listening to an aunt you don't like go on and on about rumors she's heard about ghosts. the writing is terrible, there is virtually no structure, and the author presents herself (unwittingly, i'm sure) as perhaps the least convincing authority EVAR.drivel.

    2. I have tried reading numerous books on hauntings and ghosts, but never enjoyed any as much as I enjoyed Leslie Rule's "Ghost in the Mirror: Real Cases of SPirit Encounters". Unlike many of the other books I have read on the subject, "Ghost" is written in a conversational style. As you read, you feel like you might be watching a television program, or chatting with your friends about ghost stories. In comparison, many other books are extremely dry, overly researched, and just flat out boring.This [...]

    3. Great book for ghost lovers. There were quite a few stories in this book that were different from any ghost encounters stories I'd ever heard. They are definitely gonna stick with me for a while. This 'true ghost story' book, like many in the genre, doesn't provide a lot of evidence or scientific research, so I don't recommend going into it as a skeptic. This should be obvious but: if you don't believe in ghosts, you aren't going to enjoy this book. Also if you are easily scared you might not wa [...]

    4. Not too bad. These are accounts of real ghost encounters. Real ghost stories aren't as creepy as fictional ghosts. Kinda like real life I guess. I suppose the witnesses in these accounts would disagree! Interesting read.

    5. This book was good, but not great. I found the stories to be interesting, but lacking in detail. I would have liked to know so much more about several of the locations, but before I knew it, it was on to the next story. I can't put my finger on why, but this book wasn't quite as good as Ms. Rule's previous ghost books. However, the book is short and fairly entertaining good for a quick weekend read.

    6. Four stars. I like Leslie Rule's ghost story collections over others of the same kind for several reasons. She interviews those who claim to have had the encounters and I like her in-depth, detailed, and emotion-filled recounts. I prefer them over the books stuffed with quick, summerized, and emotionless accounts of spooky happenings. The author includes many of her own b/w photos of the various haunted locations that do a wonderful job of adding to the fun and spooky flavor of her book! The aut [...]

    7. *I received this book as part of the LibraryThing Early Reader Program.If you love real life ghost stories and tales of haunted houses, hospitals and highways this is an excellent book for you. A compendium of tales of apparitions and mysterious happenings the book is cut into small, easy to digest pieces and often includes contact information for the restaurants, hotels and stores that claim to have ghostly residents.Rule does offer some research into the possible identities of the ghosts, as w [...]

    8. This book is a collection of stories involving interactive spirit encounters or residual ghost sightings by everyday people, pulled together by a writer and researcher who already published 3 prior books on collections of ghostly stories.The stories are short and plentiful, giving us the facts on who saw what, the history of the haunted site, and even talk a little about the research to discover who or why the ghost or residual might be there. You're even told when research couldn't uncover the [...]

    9. This is a collection of true hauntings. Ms Rule has written on this subject before. There is something about her writing that I'm not a huge fan of, a certain earnest self-insertion into the stories. It wasn't that bad in this one though. This one bounced all over the country with the following chapter headings, ghosts and children, haunted hospitals, ghosts on the road, haunted travelers, hungry and haunted (ghosts in restaurants), ghosts in the window, business as usual (employees who haunt th [...]

    10. It's been awhile since I've read a non-fiction book about hauntings. The anecdotes are usually rather short and seem to be lacking in detail, but I think that's just my own perception of them since I'm more used to fictional accounts at this point. With fictionalized accounts, it's expected that the author is going to fill in a lot of details, so a non-fiction story seems bare by comparison.My biggest legitimate complaint is that it seems that the author was reaching quite a bit on some stories, [...]

    11. Italics for dramatic emphasis, stupid metaphors, and cheesy alliterations and plays on word made this book almost feel like it was poking fun at its own content. There are a handful of actually interesting, specific, and detailed stories in here --any one of which I'd read a whole book on. Instead the couple nuggets of interest are buried in a pile of casual, short, super generic stories. Putting a first and last name or a location doesn't make an interesting story out of "This person was in thi [...]

    12. I've read Rule's early true ghost stories ("When the Ghost Screams," "Coast to Coast Ghosts," and "Ghosts Among Us")and I found "Ghost in the Mirror" curiously unenjoyable in comparison. The earlier books had better storytelling quality and this book reads more like a journalist's documentation. Without the dramatic appeal, the accounts read pretty dry. I think this book also contained fewer photographs. I kept the first three books, but I probably won't read "Ghost in the Mirror" again.

    13. I particularly liked the parts of this that recounted individual people's experiences with seeing or hearing strange things. It was well-balanced with the standard information about different places that are allegedly haunted and a little of their histories. I like it that Rule doesn't cling to unsubstantiated rumors the way a lot of other writers in this genre do. She actually investigates the history of places to see if the legends have any merit. Often they don't, which really makes you wonde [...]

    14. Not great, not horrible. I'm miffed because I thought I was in for a book about ghosts in morrors (which makes sense, you know, considering its title) and the foreward made it sound that way too and very few of these stories had anything to do with mirrors, or even windows. There were restaurant ghosts, ghosts on ships, haunted highways but I was prepared for mirrors.

    15. I was a bit disappointed in the book. It seemed the stories were all scattered and didn't blend well. It seemed like some of the stories were only added just to fill space. I guess I can't complain too much since it was a free kindle book. I definitely wouldn't pay anything for it though. This may be a good read for children.

    16. It may be light on ghosts, for some but it is rich in history. This is my 2nd book by Ms. Rule and I have to say I liked it. And although, little here gave me the creeps, I'd be lying if I said I didn't feel a shiver go down my spine while reading one of these tales. (I'm not saying which one actually made me shudder in fright, you'll just have to see for yourself.)

    17. I love accounts of true hauntings. This was written very well in a way that kept you turning the pages. I also really enjoy the history behind hauntings.

    18. October is my month to read ghost stories. There were several interesting stories, but not all the stories were in details. She did leave website after each story.

    19. OK, I confess -- ghost/haunting books are my "guilty pleasure"! This one lives up to Rule's previous standards. The time-and-space-defying-biscuit story made for a fun finale!

    20. It wasn't terrible but it wasn't great either. I just kept wanting it to be better. I liked her last book I read and I live a good ghost story.

    21. I want to read more Leslie Rule. She has a great story telling quality in her writing. Not scary just interesting.

    22. I enjoy reading about ghostly encounters. I believe in ghosts and places or things can be haunted, but the skeptic in me says, "I have to see it for myself".
