Ghosthunter: A Journey through Haunted France

by Simon Marsden

Sir Simon Marsden is the kind of man you'd want around a campfire--his deep and resonant voice conveys the perfect combination of gallantry and intrigue that makes a good ghost story get under your skin. And what ghost stories he has! In pursuit of his lifelong passion, he has traversed the globe capturing images of the supernatural in his signature, atmosphere-charged photographs. His latest work documents fifty haunted sites in France, from the burial place of Paris's finest in the P#65533;re Lachaise cemetery, to the Sun King's Ch#65533;teau de Versailles, and from the eerie abbey of the Mont St. Michel to the ch#65533;teaux that dot the harsh landscape of the Pyrenees. France is rich in lore surrounding the Knights Templar, and Marsden has featured their stories prominently in this collection of indelible images. Each mysterious site has a tale behind it that is brought to life not only by Marsden's spectacular photography but also by his narrative that is worthy of a suspense novel. The personal experiences of this spellbinding storyteller will inspire fellow ghosthunters and convince the staunchest skeptic to reconsider the supernatural world.… (more)

L'auteur a parcouru la France à la recherche de lieux hantés - surtout des châteaux abandonnés et des cimetières. Le texte est intéressant; Marsden est très sensible à l'esprit des lieux, parfois il suggère des choses que je me suis déjà demandé (la mémoire des pierres dans le cristal et le silicone, est-ce que nous pouvons hériter de la mémoire de nos ancêtres), parfois il se sent observé dans ces lieux insolites. Ce qui me plaît surtout ce sont les photographies, extraordinaires, du noir-blanc sur film intrarouge qui donne une impression étrange de présences à peine cachées. Elles fichent tellement la trouille que mon mari, qui avait acheté ce livre, n'ose pas les regarder! ( )

Absolutely fabulous pictures throughout, and lovely to look at otherwise (great coffee table display book!). The stories are just in-depth enough to satisfy, and "lightly" written for entertainment. We all knew France is a fascinating, historical gold mine - who knew it was also creepy? Terrific book for everyone, treasure for collectors! ( )
