Unexplained: Real Life Stories for Uncertain Times


If you love the unknown, mysterious, and weird yet true stories then I would highly recommend Unexplained by Richard Maclean Smith.

I love paranormal and unexplained spooky stories, especially if they are true! I tend to read this type the most next to true crime, serial killer, and urban legend books. I was pretty engrossed in this book through out. This is a busy time of year for me so I have less time to read than I usually do, but there were many times I put off things I should have been doing (oops!) to keep reading this because I was so into it. 

Admittedly, a lot of the stories in this book I have already heard or read about since this is my go-to subject. Even if you find this to be true for you as well, I think you'll find that the writing style holds your attention. 

This book covers quite a few subjects such as reincarnation, the Dybbuk Box, possession, and more. There are 10 different stories in here that will just plain creep you out knowing that they are all documented cases. 

About the book:
In every corner of this earth there are secrets. They are hidden in the dark edge of the woods, nestled in the cold stars, and staring out from a stranger's eyes. And whether they be demonic possession or an unsolved murder, the unknown has always haunted our dreams.

From the hit podcast Unexplained comes a volume perfectly crafted for the curious, the cynical, and the not-easily-frightened. Richard Maclean Smith is the expert in the unknown, and humbly offers up ten tales of real-life events that continue to evade explanation. With these chilling stories comes the missing key: a connection to our own beliefs in science, superstition, and perception.

What can a case of demonic possession teach us about free will? What can a cursed box show us about the act of storytelling? What can a supposed instance of reincarnation tell us about developing a concept of the self?

Perhaps some things are just better left unexplained.

About the author:
Richard MacLean Smith, part-Scottish, part-English and proud citizen of nowhere, is a writer and creator of the podcast Unexplained. An international success, Unexplained has been #2 in the US, UK and Canadian iTunes charts, and acclaimed by the Guardian and Financial Times.
