I didnít find anything that would make this book stand apart from others in its genre. Thatís not to say it wasnít interesting, it was. However, it followed the path of others of its kind. It gave supposed accounts, tales, and sightings, along with pictures.
At times the wring could be a bit understated. It tended to jump around a bit, as well. If giving the history and then moving on to the myths or stories, I feel it best to stick to that format and not go from one to the other and back again. Some of the pictures left something to be desired, such as: The Haunts of Richmond Tour, The State Capitol, and the Coulters Theatre Seat. There were a few comma errors and typos throughout the book.†
The book had some very strong elements to it. The pictures of: The VampireCrypt, Confederate Granite Pyramid, The Dooley Mansion, and the Castle ThunderPrison were outstanding. The stories: Byrd Theatre, The Terrible Fire, The Catastrophe at the State Capitol, and Hollywood Cemetery were particularly interesting and well written. At times, the humor added was a delight, like in the story of the Berkley Plantation. I think the most interesting aspects to me were the historical facts that the author credits. This made the book stronger in a way that even if you do not believe in the paranormal, the tragedies and history behind some of the locations are fascinating to read about. She also gives specific addresses and websites in case you want to visit them. If you are going to be in the Richmond, Virginia area, Iíd recommend taking this book along with you.
