    1. Novelist Ghost Lore Ghostlorist.

    2. Whoever made up the saying "the best is saved for last" wasn't kidding; thee ONLY reason I gave this book two stars is because the last two stories touched my heart. I'm judging this book simply based on my emotions. Realistically, this is a good book, but for me, I couldn't stand it. Hence why it took my three years to finish

    3. I would give this book a 3.5. I love to read about dogs. This one is a bit different. these are short stories. Most take place years ago. some in the 1800s early to mid 1900s. These stories are known as "folklore". are they true? stories that have a spin to it? I think it is up to the readers to decide. each of the stories take place somewhere in a southern state. Each story involves a dog. some of the dogs are alive and can see ghosts. other stories have dogs who have died in the story and thei [...]

    4. I loved the flavor and whimsy of this book. Southern tales that ring to the South I grew up in and my grandparents' times and before always are close to my heart. Good dogs are always good dogs, ghost or not.

    5. Perfect, especially when you drive around with a brick from the old cementery (to keep you safe) where your grandmother was buried. Not me, my aunt. This was a gift for her and I had to buy a copy.

    6. My parents picked this up for me when they were in Hilton Head- they know me so well! This is a collection of short stories involving dogs, ghost dogs and dog's interactions with ghosts. The title is slightly misleading for not all of the dogs related here are (or become) ghosts but the tales are so enjoyable this didn't bother me. The tales ranged from possibly true to almost certainly tall tales and legends. Some stories, such as A Dog's Wish (which falls into the later category of probable fa [...]

    7. What an amazing book. I could hardly put it down. The simplest of stories were told in fascinating detail and mesmerizing storytelling. If you don't believe in ghosts, you need to read this book. I read some of the stories aloud to my boyfriend, who is a nonbeliever, and I think that now his opinion has changed. "What reason would they have to not tell the truth?" was his question. Some stories seem too odd to believe, but I've always known that there's "something else" out there when we're not [...]

    8. I enjoyed the book of short stories. Some are more interesting than others and some are very touching. I have always had an interest in ghost stories and as these are set in the south, it makes it more interesting. I have been to some of the places mentioned.

    9. The stories were more folklore that had been retold and retold and exaggerated beyond even partial belief.The book wasn't what I had expected or hoped it would be.The prologue and the foreword, I'm sorry to say, were the best parts.
