What is a ghost? A tormented soul that has left unfinished business on the world of the living? A soul who cannot find rest because of great wrath, pain, and a deep desire for vengeance? A soul that was wronged and now seeks justice, crying for help? Or is it the reflection of a moment from a dreary past? A supernatural ‘’videotape’’ that has a mind of its own and decides to become visible to the eyes of the living?
Whatever the answer may be, ghosts will never cease to fascinate and entice us to discover the truth.
And good luck with that…
Written in simple, yet not simplistic language, full of vivid descriptions and observations, this book is an absolute must-read both for the connoisseurs of the subject and the ones who want to familiarize themselves with arguably, the most perplexing and fascinating problem in the history of mankind.
