It was a pleasant surprise after all these years to finally see the full Bell Witch legend come together in one book.

    I would consider this my most scariest read for this year. Reading this book gave me doubt and slight fear when I am alone. The book has pictures so readers can refer to it upon reading. It could have been better if the author have edited it well and removed some information that is not useful. I find it redundant on some parts that make this book to take a long time to read.

Reading this book gave me doubt and slight fear when I am alone. The book has pictures so readers can refer to it upon reading. It could have been better if the author have edited it well and removed some information that is not useful. I find it redundant on some parts that make this book to take a long time to read. The story of the bell witch started when a family named Bell settled in a big land in Tennessee. The land was a burial ground for a very long time. The author somehow failed to get the point on what entity the so call "bell witch was" however the author have experience some scary events while writing this book. I do believed that the long explanation in the entity and about the bell family made this book interesting to read at night. The entity that killed John Bell and Elizabeth failed marriage was because of the entity known as the bell witch it has been said that it can take any animal form. But it cannot read minds. It also played tricks to those visitors of John bell and as well as peddlers. The spirit can recall the sermon and can sing hymns. Its favorite subject was debating about the bible and religion. It was said that the bell family is active church goers christian and Baptist. The author however have given recent stories about the Bell witch cave and the bell cemetery. The book could have been great if the author have presented the background of the characters and the narration of their encounter about "KATE" the name KATE was suspected because they have a suspected neighbor involved in witchcraft. Another incidence is POWELL hidden affection to LUCY BELL one of John Bell daughter. The marriage of Lucy Bell didn't happen because of kate. It was believed that the with of the bell family still lurks around the cemetery and the land where John bell home is erected . As a reader I believed that it has a lot of entity that disturb the bell family. It is a chilling tale to read alone at night. I even believed that it was the devil who pestered this family. One story I recalled while reading this book is that there was a bachelor whom "KATE visited" to outsmart the entity the man hugged the spirit and throw the spirit with a covered blanket into the fireplace only to find out that the smell and spirit vanish i fire. Overall I enjoyed reading this book. I agree that this book could have been edited.

    This book was well written and contains a great deal of information about the Bell family and the infamous "witch" that haunts them for generations, as well as providing tons of background information about the town and family history. However, he loses the reader during several chapters from the second half of the book because he spends way too many pages discussing the religion of the time of the incidents.

However, he loses the reader during several chapters from the second half of the book because he spends way too many pages discussing the religion of the time of the incidents. While the Bell family were deeply rooted in religion, these particular chapters never mention the family and take the reader on an entirely different journey that no longer has anything to do with the subject matter. In addition, I could have done without his personal assumptions on how the paranormal works, considering he speaks about his theories as if they were fact, which is not so. For these last two reasons, what could have been a great 5-star book, loses some of its luster with me. Sorry, Pat. Just being honest. You should have stuck to the subject matter. I do give kudos for the amount of research done.

    I don't know why this book has so many good ratings. I couldn't finish this load of crap. The author doesn't show references to 99% of what he reports, he mentions pictures but doesn't show them, describes drawings as photos, and each chapter is a bunch of hear-say anecdotes. Don't waste your time or money. I don't know why this book has so many good ratings. I couldn't finish this load of crap.

    This is a REALLY COMPLETE book related to the "Bell Witch". It has EVERYTHING you would like to know about it. It starts with the actual story, told by the protagonists. As it was written in dialogues, like a soap opera (it also has an anguish love story!). And then follows a very detailed explanation of "what happened to everyone involved" after the Bell Witch was gone. It shows today pictures of tombstones, sites where the story took place, available tours, experiences people had while visiting This is a REALLY COMPLETE book related to the "Bell Witch".

And then follows a very detailed explanation of "what happened to everyone involved" after the Bell Witch was gone. It shows today pictures of tombstones, sites where the story took place, available tours, experiences people had while visiting the surroundings, paranormal analysis of what could have been the Bell "witch" (a spirit? a demon? a poltergeist?) and also some biblical scriptures related to life after death, God, spirits. You just have a super global analysis on the Bell Witch theme, the ultimate book, the author covered every single corner from every single viewpoint (religion, story, paranormal, scientific, etc). Great book.
