I as well as almost everyone else who listens to that show loves his stories and are always requesting for more! I'm glad he decided to write this book to share his very scary experiences with all of us to enjoy! Thanks Oscar! These stories are scary, but fascinating! Wished narrator had a Spanish-speaking accent for authenticity sake.
I first encountered this book on my kindle device and enjoyed reading it so much that I put a review online, which I have copied below. Later I was gifted a copy of the audiobook, and it is now my preferred format for these stories. The book was great, but listening to the narrator's performance gave these stories an extra layer of grit and creep that will keep you on the edge of whatever you are sitting on.
I am re-posting my original review below, with the additional comment that the audiobook is certainly my preferred version. Review - This was a powerful read, and given that these are based on true events experienced by the author it is more than a little creepy, in fact, downright terrifying because this is happening to a young person. Presented in a rich first person narrative style, the author takes your hand and leads you along on his compelling journey. The descriptions are rich, and the flow of the tales feels more like real life and less like a carefully plotted piece of fiction, which lends to the sense of terror and urgency.
It certainly gives the reader some thought about what it might have been like for themselves to be in that situation, to have people not believe you, to feel alone against the dark. Well done. The Pig Man has got to be one of the craziest chapters, not just the story, but the narrators performance, truly creepy and rather visceral.
What does John Alan Martinson Jr. This audiobook has lots of little extras to it, little notes, sound FX, and atmospheric additions that combine with the narrators voice to make this feel more like an old school radio horror broadcast than just a plain old audiobook. Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you? Pig Man. Oh my god. John Martinson did a great job with being able to change his voice for different characters. Makes the read very entertaining and keeps the reader engaged. My favorite part is the sound effects added when a door opens and it creaks.
I did not expect that and for that reason I really enjoyed that element. Overall I enjoyed this book because those stories are scary stories that happen to a young boy. If you like scary stories this is the book for you!

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Oscar Mendoza and the narrator made a great team with this title. I liked Oscars stories, and the narrator added a lot of sound effects to make things extra frightening. It seems like a lot of the stories are a way to scare kids into not doing bad stuff. I don't know if that was intended by the author, but if you don't want your kids to stay out past dark, or you want them to go to bed on time, then perhaps have them listen to these stories. Good luck!

The Gallup Organization reports that more than 32 percent of Americans have seen a ghost.
More than half the population believes in the spiritual, cosmic, or supernatural. To Leslie Rule, such revelations come as no surprise. Rule has spent more than a decade researching specters and spirits and has chronicled her ghostly tales in three previous titles, Coast to Coast Ghosts , Ghosts Among Us , and When the Ghost Screams. Inside Ghost in the Mirror , Rule documents more than dozens of stories of paranormal apparitions that reveal themselves on the other side of the looking glass. Rule's painstaking archival research presents factual clues to each haunting, along with her own dramatic black-and-white photographs that capture the eerie unrest of the scenes she explores.

Oct 11, Jennifer rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Susie. Shelves: nonfiction-or-feminism , horror. Unlike many of the other books I have read on the subject, "Ghost" is written in a conversational style. As you read, you feel like you might be watching a television program, or chatting with your friends about ghost stories. In comparison, many other books are extremely dry, overly researched, and just flat out boring. This book was anything but boring. Starting with the foreward, which I almost never read, the book had my attention.
The forward is written by Ann Rule, Leslie's mother, and was very intriguing. The introduction by Leslie is also intriguing and makes you excited to read the book. The chapters were organized first by telling a ghost story involving mirrors, and then seamlessly blended in other ghost stories throughout the chapters. This is a perfect book to read if you only a have a little bit of time here and there or for bathroom reading as most of the ghost stories are only a page or two.
Leslie Rule does research to enhance the ghost stories, but this never feels like a burden to read - it always feel like you are just getting more interesting backstory into the ghosts that she is talking about.
I went into reading this book thinking it would be dry, boring, and about like all of the other books I have read on hauntings. Instead, I found it to be very readable, interesting, and scary. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good scare, likes ghosts stories, or just wants to get in the mood for Halloween. I couldn't be happier that I found such a great book of ghost stories and I plan to seek out Leslie Rule's other ghost books as this one was so much fun.
Mar 25, Catherine rated it really liked it. Great book for ghost lovers. There were quite a few stories in this book that were different from any ghost encounters stories I'd ever heard. They are definitely gonna stick with me for a while. This 'true ghost story' book, like many in the genre, doesn't provide a lot of evidence or scientific research, so I don't recommend going into it as a skeptic. This should be obvious but: if you don't believe in ghosts, you aren't going to enjoy this book.
Also if you are easily scared you might not wa Great book for ghost lovers. Also if you are easily scared you might not want to pick it up. But if you want a list of some cool haunted places and retelling of their claims to fame, you can't do better! Oct 23, Jack rated it really liked it.
Not too bad. These are accounts of real ghost encounters. Real ghost stories aren't as creepy as fictional ghosts. Kinda like real life I guess. I suppose the witnesses in these accounts would disagree! Interesting read. Jan 14, Jessica rated it liked it. This book was good, but not great. I found the stories to be interesting, but lacking in detail. I would have liked to know so much more about several of the locations, but before I knew it, it was on to the next story.
I can't put my finger on why, but this book wasn't quite as good as Ms. Rule's previous ghost books. However, the book is short and fairly entertaining Jun 02, Alan rated it it was ok. I bought this book because it promised to be tales of hauntings involving mirrors. However, very few of the stories within involve a mirror at all. For the most part, it's ghostly sightings told in a generic and bland style. Great stories!
Sep 25, Kerry rated it really liked it. Interesting stories from people Ms. Rule interviewed and such. Sep 12, Lourdes Hill rated it liked it. Oct 27, Marilyn rated it really liked it Recommends it for: anyone who likes ghost stories. Four stars. I like Leslie Rule's ghost story collections over others of the same kind for several reasons. She interviews those who claim to have had the encounters and I like her in-depth, detailed, and emotion-filled recounts. I prefer them over the books stuffed with quick, summerized, and emotionless accounts of spooky happenings.

The aut Four stars. The author sometimes includes the psychic envolvement in her book's recounted tales, and I really don't have much faith in those who claim to be sensitive. I like hard, scientific evidence. The author will sometimes draw conclusions, or is quick to believe other's drawn conclusions of identities of ghosts, ect, when there just isn't any evidence to support them.
What is Kobo Super Points?
There are several stories where there was mention of wierd, unexplainable phenomenon captured by the camera's of those experiencing the hauntings, but those photos are absent from the book. Makes me wonder if they actually happened and why they were not used as part of the book. Overall an easy and fun read! Feb 20, Bookmom rated it really liked it. This book is a collection of stories involving interactive spirit encounters or residual ghost sightings by everyday people, pulled together by a writer and researcher who already published 3 prior books on collections of ghostly stories.
The stories are short and plentiful, giving us the facts on who saw what, the history of the haunted site, and even talk a little about the research to discover who or why the ghost or residual might be there. You're even told when research couldn't uncover the This book is a collection of stories involving interactive spirit encounters or residual ghost sightings by everyday people, pulled together by a writer and researcher who already published 3 prior books on collections of ghostly stories. Many of the stories involve benign residuals or ghosts, although there are some who are definitely not of the friendly sort.
But you won't find a book loaded with horror stories or ghosts that rattle chains. As someone who has my own paranormal experiences, I found the book to be a light, easy read and appreciated that the author didn't appear to embellish the stories with rumors. Nov 08, Michele Lee rated it liked it Recommends it for: ghost lovers and ghost hunter fans. Shelves: horror-suspense , utter-bullshit. If you love real life ghost stories and tales of haunted houses, hospitals and highways this is an excellent book for you.
A compendium of tales of apparitions and mysterious happenings the book is cut into small, easy to digest pieces and often includes contact information for the restaurants, hotels and stores that claim to have ghostly residents. Rule does offer some research into the possible identities of the ghosts, as well as token information on area ghost hunters and enough contact information to plan a ghost theme vacation.
She doesn't offer a skeptic's point of view or attempt to make the otherworldly scientific aside from mentioning EVPs and batteries draining on investigations. She does include many interesting pictures that while not supernatural are mood setting.
