    • This is an interesting book giving the history and true ghost stories of the Tower, one of my favourite historical buildings.Back Cover Blurb:The Tower of London's most horrific tragedies are well known; the gruesome deaths of the two boy princes in the Bloody Tower, Anne Boleyn's execution, the Jesuit priests and heretics who suffered the agonies of the rack and thumbscrew. Is it any wonder then, that there are frequent reports of blood curdling screams and moans, of unexplained footsteps and g [...]


    • I didn't read this book to take it seriously but I did read it with an open mind and a thirst to learn more about the history of the tower of London, the 'ghosts' were just an entertaining extra which is just as well as the storytelling throughout the short book reads very much like a tourist pamphlet. In fact, it reminded me a lot of the scripts the performers use at 'the Dungeons' (the Merlin entertainment immerse history attractions). The poetry at the start of each section was a nice touch.

    • Included interesting historical facts to accompany the wide range of supernatural activity, which added an extra dimension to it.Lost a star because it's quite out of date now being published first in 1980, although reprinted numerous times since then (most recently being in 2000) it hasn't been updated and I feel it could benefit from having some of the old blurry photos of the tower, replaced with modern counterparts, and stories updated to reflect modern day sighting (of which I'm sure there [...]


    • Looking at this slim volume, I worried it would be nothing more than a collection of "sightings" by too-easily spooked tourists. Happily, most of the book was historical anecdotes about some of the people who had lived and died at the Tower of London. Sure, there is the occasional paranomal experience, but it's told more like a campfire ghost story than a true believer's "evidence". A fun, if brief, tour of the Tower's darker days.


    • I borrowed this book from the library, thinking it would be about ghosts. It was, but only very little. It was more a about the Tower of London. There's nothing wrong with the book at all, in fact it was quite interesting, but it wasn't what I expected and that's why it only gets two stars.



    • A nice little book of stories about the Tower of London. The book is sectioned off by area. A good, quick read. While Abbott isn't the best story teller, the history is presented well.


    • I enjoyed this short book about people who died in the Tower of London. Only one bit made me really squeem (not squeegee as spell check seems to think!), otherwise it was really interesting!
