Looking for a Scare? Then Read These 13 Spine-chilling StoriesFor people who believe in the paranormal-ghosts, spirits, and other unexplainable encounters-most will agree that old hospitals and asylums are the most haunted places you can visit. With thirteen chilling chapters, Haunted Hospitals delves into the history of the most infamous asylums, sanitariums and hospitals on Earth, unlocking their dark histories and detailing their paranormal activities.
Take Waverly Hills Sanatorium, home to Mary, the apparition of a little girl who “wasn’t normal.” Left behind after a disease cut her young life short, Mary went from innocent in life to something more horrific in death.
Then there’s Old Changi military hospital, where a history of wartime bloodbaths still stains the old abandoned halls-leaving behind chilling images in the minds of trespassers.
Or what about any of the other haunted hospitals contained within, where apparitions, disembodied voices, and strange occurences are commonplace. With overcrowding and barbaric medical procedures being practiced, these buildings were the torture houses of the 20th century, and the eeriest haunts of the 21st.
Haunted Hospitals unlocks the dark histories of the most chilling abandoned hospitals from around the world. Every chapter describes the eerie and often frightening details of the best ghostly encounters. Are these sightings based on myth or true horrors? Only you can decide.

I mean, duh. I saw this and had to read it … I think we’re all aware that I have a type. One crucial thing to understand about this book is that it is not an in depth history. It’s a vague overview; like a tantalizing, small appetizer. I wish I could have a book with a complete history for each of the hospitals listed in this book, because now I want to know! This very tiny book gives a very tiny look into some of the stories from these hospitals. And I mean tiny. It whet my whistle for a ghost story, but it felt like this book was for those who don’t normally read horror, but want to say that they do. It was ok, but not enough for an addict like me!
