Summary

Our greatest fear is the fear of the unknown.

We've all had that feeling at some point, that gnawing, gut-wrenching fear that comes from our desire to know, and at the same time, not to know.

When it comes to a paranormal encounter, we try to rationalize that what is happening isn't real. How could it be? Ghosts, aliens, monsters - they aren't real...right? It must be something rational. We try to explain things to make ourselves feel safe. We try to believe that the world is still normal. But sometimes...it's not. 

In My Creepy Paranormal Story: Scary Stories Inspired by Real Encounters with Ghosts, Creatures, and the Unknown, we plunge deep into the terrifying world of the supernatural in a bone-chilling anthology of paranormal encounters from people who've experienced the unexplainable. These spooky selections are all based on alleged real encounters of first-hand experiences - stories so strange, they will have you questioning the world you thought you knew. 

From ghosts, to extraterrestrials, to unknown creatures lurking in the dark, you'll be on the edge of your seat as you take an unfiltered trip through the horrifying realms of the paranormal and beyond. 

David Hann and H. J. Tidy share these stories in an entertaining way while still maintaining the realism that makes them truly bloodcurdling to listen to. Guaranteed you'll finish this book with more questions than answers as we guide you through these scary stories.

Written in an easy-to-follow, hauntingly gritty, and incredibly gripping style, laced with a deliciously dark feeling of unsettling possibility, each of the stories in this collection transport you to places of mystery and otherworldliness, where real encounters with the supernatural have been documented. The first-person narrative leaves you feeling as if you are inside the story, part of the terror, and wrapped in ghostly arms of diverse experiences of the paranormal.

The title says it all!

I was given a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Subtitled "Scary Stories Inspired by Real Encounters with Ghosts, Creatures and the Unknown" the book purports to offer eleven tales based on true accounts. Of course this claim stretches credibility quickly, with many of the stories keeping only cursory acquaintance with reality, but every story is entertaining and some, well, some are genuine rather creepy.

With themes ranging from ghosts to aliens, and a great deal in between, there is sure to be something for everyone in these eleven tales. Each story in generally presented as an anecdote, with few having what we might think of as a "proper ending", but this isn't the flaw you might first take it for. Some of the stories work extremely well, and I found myself considering their implications long after the story was over ("Tell Me Your Name", my favourite story, immediately comes to mind).

There’s a podcast like quality to the stories, which is not at all a detriment to the book, but rather a positive. Each story is self-contained, and none of them last longer than twenty minutes, making this particular book a very convenient read on a commute. Not that I think you'll be able to listen to just one, I certainly couldn't.

If you are looking for strong violence, or graphic sex or language, this isn't the book for you. This is not a hard-horror title, its title kind of says it all, but this does mean that it’s probably suitable for almost any age (though some of the stories might give more sensitive souls a few uneasy nights).

This is my first book from any of its creators, including Lisa Leslie (the narrator), but I imagine it will not be the last. Though the whole package is a little "light", both in running time as well as in tone, it is not written to make you run screaming into the night. Rather it is written as an old fashioned fireside creeper, a campfire tale, and Lisa Leslies narration serves well in this aim. At first I thought her style of narration ever so slightly mechanical, but I soon warmed to it, and thought that - perhaps - narrating such a broad range of stories in one book would offer its own unique challenge. After finishing the book, I found I rather liked her performance and seeing her name in the future will probably encourage a sale from me.

My Creepy Paranormal Story probably won't hit your favourite books of the year, but it will be an entertaining four or so hours of you time. I can easily imagine being in a car with my family on a long journey listening to these stories, sparking up conversations between each, encouraging us all to chip in with our own creepy tale.

In conclusion all I can say is this. Would I listen to another similar book from the same team? I certainly would, and with some enthusiasm at that.

What more could I want?

Great bunch of creepy stories that won't let you go. Amazing for those evenings when you're tired of the tv and just want to listen to something spooky and mysterious.

Spooky and suspenseful

I really enjoyed this set of eleven spooky and suspenseful paranormal stories. A couple of the stories really sent shivers down my spine. Engaging and compelling, combined with mystery and danger, these tales kept me hooked wondering how they would turn out. I liked the alien-themed one, but I wanted more to the story. All the others had a reasonable closing, even when you didn't get all the answers. My favorite is the last one, Lonely Cabin. Who wouldn't want to have a family gathering place where memories live on and the party never ends?

The narration was really good. The stage was set with just the right amount of tension, suspense, fear, and dread, but not overly dramatic.

I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and am voluntarily leaving this honest review.

Love Love Love!

Loved this collection! I love anything scary with mystery, ghosts and suspense so this was exactly what I was hoping for. I enjoyed each and every story, they were all very gripping ( I listened to all of them in one sitting) and read with such detail to where it was easy and enjoyable to understand and imagine. I love painting a picture in my head and getting into the story like if it were a movie. This is a great collection , awesome narration and I like that it was in first person. Thank you!

great stories!

The stories in here we're pretty scary. I like it a lot. The narrator was a bit bland... but not too bad. My husband asked if I was listening to a computerized voice, and I said no, at least, I don't think so. The stories were pretty scary though, so it's worth the listen. I think the narrator could ave been more unique/personal in her presentation, but other than than that, it was overall enjoyable to listen to. You should give it a listen.

I am a ghost and paranormal lover. I am very satisfied that I bought this book. I listened to it at night in the dark to create a scary atmosphere.

It’s inspired by real stories. I recommand it. Some stories made my heart beat and jumped. Be scared!

Creeptastic

Regardless of the truth in these stories, they are well written and cover all sorts of spooky topics. Did I have to go outside halfway through and cut a branch that was scratching my window? Maybe...
