My Thoughts

Encyclopedia of the Unseen World is an interesting look at the paranormal. The subjects are listed A to Z, which is only fitting because of the encyclopedia format. Nothing is explained too heavily though, instead subjects are just generalized to give the reader a basic amount of information on each topic. This format works well for the book for the most part though, and readers are always able to do further research on the subjects that stand out to them. I wish it would have explained some subjects in more detail, but I understand why the author couldn’t fit it all in for the book. Don’t expect more than a few paragraphs on most subjects covered.

This isn’t my favorite paranormal book, but it does a good job for what it is. If you are looking for a basic understanding of a broad range of subjects, this is a good reference book to do just that.
