Ghosts from Our Past: Both Literally and Figuratively: The Study of the Paranormal - Abby L. Yates, Blakemore Erin/ Gilbert Tavia (NRT), Andrew Shaffer

Let me start out by saying that I have not seen this movie yet but I do intend on watching it even though I have had a few people tell me they didn't like it. It's probably just because it's hard to improve on the classic film. However, if the film is anything like this book I know I will enjoy it. I laughed quite a bit while reading this story. It didn't take much imagining to be able to hear and picture Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig in my mind while reading about their childhood and research of the paranormal in later years. Andrew Shaffer did an amazing job capturing their personas.


I am told Ghosts From Our Past makes an actual appearance in the film which is always cool. The illustrations drawn by Abby and Erin to go along with their research are a nice little add-on. This book mixes what would be real topics from a paranormal guide with humor and tie-ins from the movie to make it a fun and enjoyable read for anyone who is a fan or interested in all things supernatural.


If your looking for something lightweight that you can just kick back and relax with for a few laughs, you should pick this book up and read it now. Recommended!
