Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest
By: G.L. Davies - 6th Books, $18.95
Description: Blissful beginnings for a young couple turn into a nightmare after purchasing their dream home in Wales in 1989.
Their love and their resolve are torn apart by an indescribable entity that pushes paranormal activity to the limit.
Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest is the prequel to the bestselling A Most Haunted House.
Dare you step inside ...?!
Verdict: For all intents and purpose, Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest is an account of a true haunt, with several people telling what happened to them during their stay in the house.
A majority of the text is written in interview format, which may give the account more credibility, but for some reason, fell a little flat for me, personally.
That is not to say that I wasn’t enthralled to keep reading along, it just made for slightly more literary reading pitfalls along the way.
I can see, and for the most part understand Davies kept it in this format, especially given his other books of the same ilk, but I just couldn’t get it to flow when silently reading it, as much as I would have liked, that’s all.
Anyway, moving on and it seems, via the related stories that what happened to these couples in the house was indeed very terrifying and for that alone this book kept my attention!
For, and as they are revealed to be, the unholy spirits that haunt this house are most definitely pissed at something, or someone, of course!
Now, in truth, Haunted: Horror of Haverfordwest is a very intriguing book, chock full of spiritual wonderment and ghostly possibilities, but you will either be of the mind to run through it in the one sitting, or read bite size chapters each or every other day (it works both ways, trust me).
Embedded with working theories that delve into what could have happened in the house, ranging from mold to psychological to psychedelics and, of course, never leaving the possibilities of aliens to far out of the spectrum of possibility, the book takes you slowly down rabbit holes without you even realizing!
Sure, the research was most definitely done in trying to understand the possible haunting, but whether a genuinely satisfying, perhaps even believable conclusion is ever reached, well, I’ll leave that down to you to determine.
