Focusing on EVPs, Electronic Voice Phenomenon, much of the investigation relies on recording the voices of the Dead. As the Audio CD wasn't included with the eGalley I received from the publisher, I cannot say how much I would have managed to "hear" in the examples gathered. People like to think in patterns, so the interesting question would be, how much we are reading into what, to some, is only noise?
My skepticism aside, especially regarding how easy it seems for the team to visit places and the ghosts will always make their "appearance", no patience and waiting needed, I appreciated how the reviewing of evidence and collecting of data doesn't lead to instantaneous assumptions that ghosts must exist. Essentially it's about logging and recording and the hope that one day this will lead to definite answers.
Either way, I found the book itself genuinely intriguing. From introductions to haunted places to the actual process of recording, sadly skimping on technical detail, straight to developing theories on the dearly departed and why they sometimes dwell, I can well imagine this book to work great if presented as paranormal show on TV.
In short: When ghosts talk! Or do they?
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the NetGalley book review program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
