I can’t believe I read this book in less than 24 hours. I haven’t done that in ages! What’s more is I don’t read a whole lot of non-fiction. I prefer my reading to be completely made-up junk, but “Tormented By Ghosts”, by Lynda Bogert pulled me in right from the start.
The tone of the book, as you might not expect, is almost light-hearted and very casual. Going in I was afraid it would be about facts and sterilized paragraphs of documented happenings, but it was written more like a first-person fiction. It was that choice of style that really made things easy for me to adjust to the true story format and allowed me to focus on Lynda’s story.
From beginning to end, Lynda’s journey jumps from mysterious to frightening to hilarious and back again. It’s (brace yourself for a wonderfully cliche descriptor!) quite literally an emotional roller coaster of feelings that force you out of your comfort zone then butter you up with heartfelt moments that leave you ill-prepared for the torment to come!
“Tormented By Ghosts” isn’t a scary story. It’s a chilling tale with two clashing poles. One side pulls you to hope and happiness then the other side leaves you dreading the dark. I’m sure as hell never inspecting any bumps in the night ever again.
