My favourite book of all time has to be 'This House Is Haunted' by Guy Lyon Playfair. It tells the full story of the Enfield poltergeist. Copies come up on ebay from time to time. Anything by Peter Underwood is good too.

Have you had a chance to start this yet Claire? James had bought a copy and is finding it a bit hard going but I think it is the easiest book in the world to get into.

meant to say on sat Mark, I've still not read this yet (despite you lending me it months ago - sorry!), however I've picked it up a few times and looked at certain bits of it. I can see what both you and James mean I think, it looks easy enough to read but its not the most interesting to read cover to cover to keep your attention etc, despite the content being interesting. The reason I've flicked as oppose to started reading it properly is I've picked it up a few times to start and as its not gripped (and I'm trying to read up on other stuff at the moment), as it wasnt quite as entertaining and easy to read as I presumed it would be I've resorted to flicking and leaving it until I can give it my full attention.

No worries, I was just curious. There's nowt more annoying that when someone lends you a book to be constantly asked "Have you read it yet? Have you read it yet?"

I'm so glad. I'd be interested to know your thoughts about the case when you've finished it.

you'll get them Mark, I'm just sorry I've not read it sooner!
I'll be watching the utube links bout it too which you/Jay/Abaddon put on bout it somewhere (that post was what reminded me bout it, I'd started it a while ago but then got sidetracked,never mind, I'm back on track now,sincere apologies for having your book for the best part of a year!!!!!!!!!xxxxxxxxxxx)

The way the book is written, whilst I read it it draws me in to believe every word of it.....although I know from reading other things bout the case its not quite as clear cut.....but gotta say, reading the book I'm there,the familly are lovely,all genuine and whilst reading I believe it all 100% as the book says it, if that makes sense!

I know what you mean. The is much contradictory stuff written about Enfield, and there is no doubt that the author is coming at it from a paranormal angle, but then again, why shouldn't he? After all, he was there and lived through the thing, and all the other peices I have read 'against' the polt have been from people with little or nothing to do with the case.
