Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

We had been instructed to enter by the back door. That's the part of the house where the old man had lived. It was where he still lived. Turns out he was watching us that day too, silent and heavy as the air, bound to the earth and his former home.

In 1994, Annie Wilder and her children moved into a 100-year-old house in a historic Mississippi River town. Beautiful but spooky, the house had been on the market for six months with no offers. It felt like-and proved to be-a very haunted house.

Essentially the story of a remarkable old Victorian house that seems to be a threshold to the spirit world and the astral realm, House of Spirits and Whispers has a backstory of the Wilder family's relationship with the ghost of the home's previous owner, an old man named Leon.

Covering a decade's worth of ghostly activity and supernatural events, from whispering radiators to visits and appearances from all manner of spirits and entities, this unusual story is the true account of Annie Wilder's experiences living in a haunted house.

4.0 su 5 stelle Listen to the warning bells in YOUR head 6 luglio 2012

I read it in one day. It kept me interested, I'll give it that much. But was it a ghost story? Or was it a writer trying to cash in on the current real ghost phenomena?

I gave it four stars, too, but will it find it's way into the paranormal pile of books or will it be passed on as paranormal fiction to someone more gullible? I tend to think it won't be on my bookshelf for long.

Here are some things to make note of before you take this story to heart. Listen to the warning bells:

1. The author, while not a writer at the beginning of the book, had aspirations to become a FULL TIME writer. *DING*

2. The house had major electrical problems when the author bought it and as far as I can tell, the author never fixed them. I wonder how that influenced blinking lights and electronics that came on or shut off by themselves. *DING*

3. The author spends a great deal of time presenting dreams as OOB experiences and omens which she interprets as ghostly activity. If you take all these out of the book, the book will be about 30 pages long. *DING*

4. The author "sees" not only ghosts but "electrical grids", heavenly beings, geometric figures (?) and other assorted neurological anomalies but she never sees a doctor to check for an organic problem such as a seizure disorder or medicine interaction. *DING DING DING*

Look, I've seen a ghost or two in my time, too. But we didn't interact and we didn't exchange mental messages. I didn't "feel" them protecting me or harassing me, or, for God's sake, trying to get in bed with me or STICKING THEIR TONGUE IN MY EAR. (Seriously, folks. She said an "astral being" stuck it's tongue in her ear.) The sexual overtones presented by a few of her stories were uncomfortable to read and made me less likely to wonder why her use of the word "beau" had an "s" on the end of it. She seemed much more in love with her ghosts than her real beaus.

If you want to read a "true" book on a stormy night, this will do the trick. If you are searching for something more, you might feel the price is too high for this read. And, btw, I resent the fact that the Kindle edition has no photos or drawings which I believe the printed text DID. Why am I paying almost full price for a book that isn't a full book?

2.0 su 5 stelle Well-written, but not scary. . . . . 8 ottobre 2012

The word "haunted" always makes a ghost story sound terrifying. . . but in this case, the story wasn't really very scary at all. The author writes a first-person story of her haunted house experience, and also discusses what was happening in her family and personal life to give more interest to the characters. While I feel it was an interesting tale, with some "paranormal" experiences, most of the time, I was not at all frightened. The author is very open to para-psychology and she herself was not really frightened most of the time, and seemed to harbor a belief that the spirits were benign in her home. It was an interesting story, but if you don't share the author's openness to other beliefs systems, she may come off as somewhat hokey. Some suspense, but little terror. It was, however, extremely well-written. If you are looking for a terrifying ghost experience, this is not your story. If you want a reasonably factual account of paranormal activity, this is it.

Di Sandy Rhoad - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I saw a program on TV about Annie Wilder and her house - seemed interesting so I purchased both of her books. This book was interesting regarding the house and its invisible occupants UNTIL -- she lost me when she said she saw her dead cat on the roof and went to the upstairs bedroom and reached THROUGH the glass with her hand and patted the cat - and then REALLY lost me when she communed with her dead irish grandmother who told her that she was late for lunch with the other dead relatives. LUNCH - really? I will read the other book because I already purchased it, but Wilder's credibility is pretty much shot over those two incidents. I've had paranormal experiences but I've never been able to reach THROUGH glass. Buy it if you are curious but don't expect more than cartoon animation in some places.

Ordered this book based on a podcast review where the host used the words "scary" and "terrifying". I kept waiting for that feeling but the writing was very light hearted and matter of fact. She accepted spirits in the house the way you would expect an occasional pest problem. It's a quick read and easy read but you will have no trouble falling asleep.

4.0 su 5 stelle Spooky Read! 16 ottobre 2007
Di G. Messersmith - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Why she bought this house I will never know but I'm glad she did so she could write the book and tell us all about it. The house was old and spooky to begin with but she fell in love with it - even though it needed a lot of work. The previous owner had been an older man who lived there alone except he rented out some of the rooms. At first I was scared of him but you will soon realize he is not threatening to Annie and her family but some of the other ghosts are. I'm not even sure I believe in ghosts but at night after reading and laying down to sleep I know I had some strange and sometimes disturbing dreams.

Wilder has a nice writing style - very conversational - as though she is telling you all this over a cup of tea. I found the book delightful and was sorry for it to end. I am looking forward to reading other books by her and I hope everyone enjoys the book as much as I did.
