A Ghost in My Suitcase: A Guide to Haunted Travel in America Reviews
Are ooky spooks your thing? Are you the type of adventurer who sinks into the history and character of a location? Up for a good haunt? A Ghost in My Suitcase: A Guide to Haunted Travel in America could be the right fix for your jones. This travel guide by Mitchel Whitington holds the keys to the best haunted spots in the United States. Whitington himself lives in and runs The Grove Tour House, one of the featured properties in his book. Shameless self-promotion? Perhaps. But that fact, coupled with him having been to each place in his book certainly gives him the credentials to write this 2005 book. Each chapter is set up in basically the same way. Most have a picture of the establishment, but a few are shown with a standard replacement illustration of a suitcase. The establishment, city, and state are listed with the picture (or the “error 404” illustration.) The chapter will run through the history and perks of the location—mind, the author certainly has a habit of mentioning the food. He’ll tell you about the ghosts as specifically as he can (sometimes so specifically that the believability decreases,) and about the experiences of himself and others. Whitington lists the address and contact information of the establishment at the end of the chapter. The author does this with a friendly voice, but glosses over most of the creepiness in order to welcome the reader to the facilities rather than drive them off. All this accomplishes, however, is making interesting things seem less interesting and contributes to the travel guide’s tendency to become monotonous after a period of time. A reader looking for tales of interesting places, or, perhaps, an interesting place to go, should grab themselves a copy of Mitchel Whitington’s A Ghost in My Suitcase: A Guide to Haunted Travels in America.
In Whitington’s book, the reader will walk the halls of haunted houses throughout America and learn of the history surrounding the area. You will read personal, first-hand accounts of chilling encounters with the unexplained. If you love ghost stories, you’ll love this!
