Críticas:

Beautifully written ... lithe, complicated and hugely rewarding (James McConnachie Sunday Times)

Simmering as it is with personal reflections, this handsome volume ... is bursting with a giddy passion, buoyed further by an expert's thirst for abstruse facts. The main pleasure of reading this book is Clarke's own enthusiasm, intelligence and seriousness ... a deeply interesting, revealing read ( Book Hugger)

Splendid ... compelling ... Clarke manages to give goose-flesh and a giggle while informing the reader - an enviable feat ( Scotsman)

A highly enjoyable (and disturbing work) ... I am in awe of [Clarke's] intrepidity ( Guardian)

Outstanding ... Clarke's dissection of the shocks, sadnesses and sexiness of the seance tables from the late Victorian era is brilliantly done ... The book is deeply enjoyable, hugely informative and at times distinctly unsettling ( Shade Point)

Britain has over 500-years' worth of ghost stories in the cupboard and in The Natural History of Ghosts, Roger Clarke makes them dance ... the most original and readable book exploring our ghost-rich culture to appear for years ... fascinating ( Fortean Times)

Clarke's examination of the need people have to believe remains insightful and illuminating throughout ( Observer)

Roger Clarke explores the endlessly fascinating subject of the dead who won't lie down, the places they haunt, as well as the hysteria and panic they inspire. Why and how over 500 years their existence has never been scientifically proved - but at the same time, never disproved. Ghosts are masters of the elusive and ambiguous, but Clarke is a master investigator (Fay Weldon Daily Mail)

An intriguing, shivers-down-the-spine book ( The Lady)

Lively and absorbing ... [Clarke] has proven himself an ideal guide to this troubled and disorderly realm ( Literary Review)

Roger Clarke tells . . . gloriously weird stories with real verve, and also a kind of narrative authority that tends to constrain the sceptical voice within. There's simply so many of these accounts, each unique to its own setting but having much in common with the rest, particularly poltergeist activity and ghostly apparitions. What prevents the reader from casually dismissing it all as the delusions of disturbed minds is the frequent presence of some unflappable English person unlikely to be rattled by a mere bump in the night . . . [an] erudite and richly entertaining book ( New York Times)

A fascinating social history ... exceptionally well written and researched ( Starburst Magazine)

Why do ghosts wear clothes? This is just one of a number of interesting questions raised by this jaunty book ... In a series of short, snappy chapters, Clarke examines the evidence for just about every ghost who ever drew, or withdrew, breath ... but A Natural History of Ghosts is also haunted by another story, lurking not very far beneath: the story of the author's childhood need to believe in ghosts, and the gradual erosion of that belief (Craig Brown Daily Mail)

A gripping history that traces the scientific and social aspects of ghostly sightings ( Telegraph)

Compelling ... Research into the paranormal necessarily involves a fair degree of debunking, and Clarke is careful to be sceptical. The narrative of ghost-hunting is simultaneously a history and exposure of fraud and popular delusion ... [yet] Clarke retains a boyish and ... well-informed enthusiasm for his subject ( Independent)

[A] voyage through the half-lit world of lost souls ... tales told with ghoulish relish ( Telegraph)

Reseña del editor:

The fascinating true history of ghosts - how we see them and why we believe in them, from Roger Clarke

What explains spectral sightings? Why do we fear the supernatural? What proof is there? Growing up in a haunted house, Roger Clarke spent much of his childhood trying to see a ghost. From the terrifying true events behind Henry James's The Turn of the Screw to the frenzy of the Cock Lane poltergeist, he takes us on a journey of belief with ghosts of every kind.
