central ohio legends lore Reviews
This was one of the most fun, interesting books I've read to date. The author was informative, reasonable, and at times, throughout the book, quite humorous. There were many intriguing stories told and I love the way that parts of the book were broken down into specific sections such as those that relate to ghosts and urban legends and those that relate to Central Ohio true crime (subjects I find immensely entertaining).The book is a quick read & sparked a lot of interest in me to seek out some of the areas mentioned in the book, due to my proximity to them living in Columbus.Fun and educational, and I'm pleased to have read this.
There are good parts of this book and others that weren't so engaging. It seems like there were a few people who may have been born in Central Ohio, but didn't really do anything here, which was more of what I was looking for. However, the book was an interesting look at legends, people, places and things that are talked about in Central Ohio. I particularly enjoyed the chapter on urban legends, and loved seeing the places I used to hang out around like Mooney's Mansion and the "Gates of Hell" discussed.
Great relaxing read. It was fascinating to trace back, as far as one can, the folklore and find the nugget that started it all. The humor cut in at the perfect moments! Satin...ha!
