Haunted Plantations of the South by Richard Southall

Haunted Plantations of the South by Richard Southall
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Richard Southall has compiled a book about haunting's in plantations in America. He has done a very good work, listed the plantations in different states. So here we have haunted plantations from South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and so on. All very neatly put together, Every plantation is described; its history and its ghosts. Very academic and also a bit boring to read.

It really feels like reading a thesis. Some histories were kind of interesting to read, especially the very tragic ones, women waiting for a soldier never to return to her and so on, but hell, this is about ghosts and the book bored me because everything was so clinical and dispassionate.

Also, I missed images in the book. I hope the finished book will have images of the plantations, even if they are burned down and in ruin. It would have been much more interesting to read if one had some images to go with the story.

Thank you Netgalley for providing me with a free copy for an honest review!
