Something New, Something Strange …
The review this round is going to be a tad different than normal. I’m reviewing three different books by the same author. Paul Fitz-George writes about ghosts. He’s a bit of a supernatural historian.
The Reviews …
4/5 The West End Ghost Book: A Ghostly Gallivant Through London’s Haunted Heartland
Summary: Sort of a who’s who of creepy ghosts and where to find them in London.
– Kind of glad that I didn’t have this book before my trip to London.
– I heard the audio version. The narrator did a lovely job with the performance, but some of the titles were really hard to distinguish because of the sound effect used to make it even creepier.
– It’s like an occult history book. I found it interesting because it’s vastly different from my usual listening fare.
Conclusion: If you’re up for some ghosts, give this a go.
4/5 The Whitby Ghost Book
Summary: A peek into the supernatural goings on in Whitby, England.
– Writing and narration are both good, though I could do without the sound effects. Sometimes they help, but in this case, they just made some sections hard to hear.
– Cover’s pretty creepy, but it fits the mood nicely.
– A nice companion piece to the West End Ghost Book (though I think this one was actually the first book).
Conclusion: Historical supernatural accounts. Not exactly sure what to call them.
4/5 Christmas Customs of Old Whitby by Paul Christopher Fitz-George
Summary: A super-short, niche book about Christmas customs in an old English town.
– The title sort of says it all.
– I heard the audioversion. The narrator fit the project well.
– If you’re into history, it might be a good fit for you.
Small slice of history with a touch of weird.
Paul Fitz-George’s works definitely fall outside the realm of normal, but they’re fun and short overall. He’s got two narrators: Time Winters and Petrina Kingham. Both handle their respective stories well. I’d listen to more works by them.
