May Book Review: "Guide to Haunted Places of the Civil War"
Author: Blue and Gray Magazine
Publisher: Blue Gray Publishing
I picked this book up last weekend, eyes glazed over, in my frenzy to read another good Civil War Ghost book (I'm a CW ghost fiend). But, to my dismay, I was very disappointed.
This book contains stories which can be found in about every other Civil War ghost book, through and through. Some of the stories I wouldn't even rate as ghost stories, but as mere coincidence. The Blue and the Gray did a poor job on this book, and its left a bitter taste in my mouth. Now, I'll think twice before buying another one of their books
Overall rating: *
By the way, last weekend I attended the Mansfield Civil War Show, and picked up a good years worth of Civil War reading. Expect some great book reviews in the future!
Rating system will go as follows:
*=not worth reading
**=better, but still not good
***=okay book. recomended
****=great book. recomended!
*****=Excellent book. Highly recomended!!
