Ghost Trackers: The Unreal World of Ghosts, Ghost-Hunting, and the Paranormal Reviews
I have always been interested in ghosts, paranormal activity and the like, so this book was right up my alley. It is extremely well written for the age group it is intended for. The book is based on a TV series and you can check it out at Ghost Trackers.The author has nicely split up the book into chapters discussing the history of ghosts and ghost hunting, the science behind proving if ghosts are real or hoaxes, some really great examples of hauntings and a how to sectoin on tracking ghosts yourself.I would have to say after reading about the different types of ghosts I would never want to meet up with a poltergeist, they sound very mean and nasty. Though I wouldn't be upset to meet a helpful ghost like the one mentioned in the coal miner story - the ghost appeared to a miner, who then followed it to another tunnel to try and see who or what it was, and once in the new tunnel the one he was in collapsed behind him and he would have died had it not been for the helpful ghost who lured him out of the doomed tunnel.There are chapters on the supplies and equipment you would need to track ghosts and the safest way to do so. There are tips and tricks, but I would assume watching the TV show would show you better how to use the equipment as the book just tells you about the equipment and not how to actually use any of it.I really liked how there were references to search on the internet to watch videos of the stories mentioned. The following is the video for the Argentina Ghost Swings. (youtube video embdded) Do you believe it or is it a hoax?Overall, I enjoyed the book very much and believe that the target audience would enjoy reading through the different sections to understand more about ghosts and where to find them.
This easily read book is based on the TV series "Ghost Trackers" which showcases kids, already taught how to use the equipment and what to look for, to investigate purported locations of paranormal activity. The book's purpose is to give kids enough knowledge to do their own investigations. I've never seen the show.The author breaks the book down by giving a little bit on history, science involved in investigating, the different types of ghosts or spirits, some famous haunted sites, and information on what you need and should do if you want to try this yourself. Sprinkled throughout the book are colorful pictures and interesting tidbits and stories. What I found most unusual is that the author says multiple times that no one really knows if ghosts exist.As someone with paranormal experiences, I would have appreciated more information and examples on the different subjects, although the book is geared towards kids who are probably more interested in getting to the "how to track and what to look for" portions of the book. Sensible advice is given on what you need and should do, although while describing the equipment needed, it doesn't say how to use it. Kids watching the show might already have a good idea.Overall it's a decent book for the target audience.
Do you believe in ghosts? That is the question that is asked in this television series inspired book for young adult readers. If ever there were a treasure chest of ghost hunting basics, this photo filled guide is it. This page turner is for the novice ghost hunter or even for the experienced ghost hunter who wants to brush up on their terminology. Just about every page is filled with eerie photos and colorful sidebars full of quick and easy defintions, how-to's and true ghost stories. If you aren't a believer in ghost you will be after reading Gudgeon's book. Readers will be dazzled with everything pertaining to ghosts, hauntings, and sightings dating all the way to 68 CE. Skeptics will read what the scientist think about ectoplasm, fake photos and pyschic tricksters. This very interesting and informative book will educate readers about animal afterlife and a checklist to determine if their homes are haunted. The index in the back of the book makes for a quick reference guide. If parents or teachers wanted to teach a course on ghost tracking this book takes the lead.
Chris Gudgeon's, Ghost Trackers, is a short book that serves to educate young readers on the history of the paranormal and to provide insight into the world of ghost-hunting. The book is clearly geared towards younger readers and provides some interesting features, such as pointers to web links to continue your paranormal education beyond the provided content.[return][return]I do find it a bit disconcerting that a book on ghost-hunting is geared towards children. Granted, handing junior a DVR camera and an EMF detector may be a great way to get the kids out the house while you watch the football game, but that would probably not be the best means to gain an award in parenting. I would advise that parents read this book first to ensure that they are comfortable with their children consuming this subject matter. An enjoyable read and a great introduction to the world of the paranormal.
The creator of the popular show, "Ghost Trackers" is offering his expertise in a how to guide for teens. Packed with spooky stories, popular case examples, and information on outfitting yourself as a ghost hunter, teens interested in the paranormal will be able to set up their own investigations and hunt for clues themselves. The pictures are probably the weakest part of the book, mainly featuring dull house shots or artist illustrations from old newspapers. - C.
This was a fun book and definitely targeted toward children. I did enjoy reading through it, and would recommend it for children who are fans of the television show or are interested in the subject of ghosts.
