Written by Leslie Rule, true crime Queen Ann Rule's daughter, Coast to Coast reads like your friend is into ghost stories and she wants to share a few with you. Leslie has that same warm, folksy style of writing that her mom has. Ann actually provides the intro of the book and they have very similar writing voices. It was a quick read, part history, part ghost story. A lot of the stories were just people recalling different experiences they had. I enjoyed the haunted places the most, especially Capt. Tony's Saloon in Key West. They have a grave and a hanging tree right in the bar. Since the publication of this book Captain Tony has passed on and it wouldn't surprise me if he was still hanging around his favorite place. Also interesting was the history surrounding Oprah's Harpo Studios in Chicago. As a lover of history I found that aspect the most enjoyable of the book, the majority of ghosts stories were unmemorable. Recommended if you would enjoy a quick and quirky tour of the US. ( )

Fall is my favorite time of the year and in the area where I live people go crazy with Halloween decorations. I love Halloween and in honor of that, I'm pulling books off my shelf that deal with the supernatural. This book listed some fascinating cases of haunted places. I thought the writing was stilted, trite and cliche, but nevertheless, it held my interest. ( )

Epigraph
I am in the shadow that creeps across your wall And in the fingers of the wind as it tangles up your hair; I am in the corner of the eye of the stranger lurking by; I am Ghost. I am in the shriek that shatters your sleep And in the dance of the branches of the dying autumn trees; I am in the silence and in the shouting too; I am Ghost. I am in the tears weeping on your window And reflected in the puddle in a fold between the ripples; I am in the loneliness as she reaches for the phone, And in the empty house, that aches for a family who will never return; I am Ghost. In am in the echo of hollow laughter gone; I am in the rip in the wallpapers stacked up in the hall; I am Ghost. I am in the invitation forgotten in the drawer And in the legs of the spider who lives beside the light; I am in the rusty ring on the claw-footed tub. I am Ghost. - Leslie Rule

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0740718665, Paperback)

Ghosts have been the entertaining subject of many works of fiction, but they're even more intriguing (and perhaps even scarier) when they are the focus of real-life hauntings in our own backyard. An employee of the St. James Hotel in New Mexico watches in shock as a fair-haired toddler with a terribly disfigured face disappears into the floor. This is just one of the paranormal mysteries Leslie Rule shares with us--a result of extensive interviews and research uncovering the reasons behind ghost sightings across the country.

Coast to Coast Ghosts features dozens of spine-tingling, real-life ghost stories and approximately fifty black-and-white photographs taken by Rule, including some believed to have captured actual apparitions.

Only the reader can decide. . . .
