    I picked up this book to learn about some local oddities and places of interest, hoping to find a few things that might be worth making a day trip out of them. It was entertaining, and makes for a great coffee table book - something to open up to a random page every now and then. Unfortunately, even though this edition is less than a decade old, it's already pretty dated - it makes a good starting point for some trips, but more recent research would be required.

It was entertaining, and makes for a great coffee table book - something to open up to a random page every now and then. Unfortunately, even though this edition is less than a decade old, it's already pretty dated - it makes a good starting point for some trips, but more recent research would be required. I thought that the information was decently well-presented. The book includes many legends as well as factual places and events, offering something for believers in the paranormal and those whose minds are firmly planted in the world of scientific reality. Many of the places and events were presented with the authors' opinions, which sometimes was welcome and interesting, but sometimes detracted from the reader being able to form their own opinions and credibility. Short review: Interesting book to flip through when you're bored. Nothing grand or mind-blowing, just highlights the state's legends and notable places and people.

    I got this book at the library to learn some history and find some cool places to photography in my home state. Turns out it’s more interest vs. travel oriented. I was hoping for something that was organized by region to aid in planning tips and such and this wasn’t it. It was enjoyable though.

    Good book, but definitely skewed to the St. Louis side of the state.

    Missouri evidently doesn't have nearly the level of weirdness needed to flesh out one of these books, because a good number of the topics in this volume were just not very interesting, let alone "weird." The book would definitely have benefited from a more in-depth look at the religious weirdness in Missouri, from the varied grottos and shrines scattered across the state to the alleged location of the Garden of Eden. That said, I did enjoy the descriptions of Times Beach (aka Route 66 State Park Missouri evidently doesn't have nearly the level of weirdness needed to flesh out one of these books, because a good number of the topics in this volume were just not very interesting, let alone "weird."

That said, I did enjoy the descriptions of Times Beach (aka Route 66 State Park) and Weldon Springs, two eerie locales in the St. Louis metro area, as well as the Rolla Stonehenge, a favorite place to stop on the way to visit friends in Licking.
