SUMMARY Atlas des lieux maudits

8 million migrating bats darken the skies; the Nevada Triangle in the Sierra Nevada mountains where hundreds of aircraft have disappeared; and Aokigahara Forest near Mount Fuji in Japan the world's second most popular suicide location following the Golden Gate Brid. Hard to resist title but unfortunately I didn t find the presentation to be up to the same standard I was very excited when I was approved to borrow this from the publisherNetgalley I mean who wouldn t be interested in a book about spooky and dangerous places It s broken down by region North America Africa etc but I found that a good many of the places listed were unfamiliar to this geography buff and to be frank not what I would really consider cursed or scary Some of the locations were man made disasters others seemed to have gotten their reputation based on folk tales and not empirical proof The maps provided were interesting but I would have much preferred pictures of the sites mentioned This book was provided free from the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

Aos paranormal activity and death The locations gathered here include the dangerous Strait of Messina home of the mythical sea monsters Scylla and Charybdis; the coal town of Jharia where the ground burns constantly with fire; Kasanka National Park in Zambia where. I just loved the idea of a travel guide to cursed places In this Atlas of Cursed Places by Olivier Le Carrer the contents section of the book made me even keen to read it I think that most people will be like me and know they want to read it or simply pass by For those who do want to read it there is a treat in store It is beautifully presented with maps and plans longitude and latitude for each cursed place The write up then indicates why the author considers the location a cursed place I guess any such book is subjective and others may not agree that some places are cursed and will wonder at others that are not included I found covering Nuremberg and yet none of the death camps a little strange for example The places covered in this book vary from those about which there are ancient legends through to really uite contemporary areas indeed in the case of the graveyard of Russia s nuclear submarines you could argue that the curse has not uite been fulfilled yet The range of places covered and the reasons are wide and variedThe basic outline of some of the places I was familiar with Krakatoa the Chateau at Montsegur Amityville would would be examples However others were completely new to me The graveyard of Russian nuclear submarines Cape York s killer crocs and the impact on the environment of visitors to the Maldives I knew less or nothing about it won t make them holiday destinations for me however I did find it very interesting There are actually places I d like to visit as a result of this book and certainly some I d like to know about If I have a criticism about this book it would be that the articles on each place are fairly short the feel was like magazine articles than chapters maybe While I really appreciated the maps that accompanied each place it would have been nice to have some photographs although I realise not every place lends itself to a picture photographs of the Bermuda Triangle would probably be less than interesting However it is still a book I enjoyedNote I received an advance copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair review

Oliver Le Carrer brings us a fascinating history and armchair journey to the world's most dangerous and frightful places complete with vintage maps and period illustrations in a handsome volume This alluring read includes 40 locations that are rife with disaster ch. This was a fantastic concept but it fell flat in execution for meThe book had a lot of good information but the reading felt very dry for most of the book There were a lot of old maps of where each area was but the scale was often so close up I couldn t get a good world reference I also would have rather had photographs of each area rather than a full page map So many of these would have been augmented well with images I had to keep going to the internet to find pictures or videos to add to what I was reading When I found images it brought the stories and history to life for me Without them I just wasn t engaged Perhaps a second edition with photographs would really make the difference for readersI plan to look into Aokigahara Suicide Forest This area sounds so devastating I hope the government looks into providing suicide help and education for the area Thank you Netgalley and Black Dog Leventhal Publishers for a free digital copy in exchange for an honest review
