A Strange Little Place is the kind of book I’ve not read in a long time. When I was (a lot) younger I used to have a particular fascination with UFO stories based on actual events. A book called The Pennine UFO Mystery by Jenny Randles started off a period of me reading these kind of books heavily and produced a lifelong interest in the paranormal. I may often be sceptical, but that’s doesn’t dim my interest one bit.
It’s nice to be back on familiar ground with A Strange Little place. The premise of the book, that being stories of the paranormal variety from the town of Revelstoke, Canada piqued my interest immediately, as the stories give a look into life of this small town, as much as it does for paranormal events. This book speaks volumes of the oral history of this isolated but beautiful area.
A Strange Little Place starts with the history of the area. The author made this history both interesting and engaging. It set the scene well for the following paranormal and ghost stories.
So what do I think of A Strange Little Place?
One of the first things that popped into my mind whilst reading this book was that I loved the authors “voice”. Brennan Storr has great storytelling ability. It honestly felt like I was sat round a camp fire being told these stories by a really great storyteller. The kind that everyone stops what they are doing and listens in silence.
The book contains many pictures of the places and buildings described in the stories. This was a really nice touch and allowed the stories to come alive visually. The stories are for the most part short and sweet. There are no embellishments, and it’s refreshing that Brennan Storr doesn’t feel the need to push his own beliefs and theories down your throat.
A Strange Little Place has been a genuine pleasure to read. Those that enjoy a well researched collection of paranormal will find this book a real treat. 4 stars.
