Don t get me wrong this is a gorgeous book reminiscent of an old sailor s journal with full drawings of maps macabre artworks of skeletons and just overall really pleasant to look at and flip through I think it s part of the appeal of this book that certainly and the enticing title Atlas of Cursed Places If you re a casual connoisseur of the macabre like me you d probably instantly think that this is the book for youBeyond the excellent packaging however there s little to be said The entries are sparse and although charming witty and captivating enough to the casual reader failed to engage both the intellect and the imagination For example why is Chateau of Montsegur has the subtitle Satan s Synagogue As an avid reader of internet Creepypasta and horror stories to me this title seems like a gift from God ironically to a writer especially in a book themed as such but alas it s the first page and the book failed to live up to its promise Maybe it s just me but I think this book should really capitalise on the stories bit the human interest since legends and mythologies is what kept these supposed cursed places alive and well in the collective human psyche not dry facts Yes birds mysteriously commit collective suicide in this place but why It s not enough to say experts say maybe it s this and that and legend had it that plus some witty sardonic joke which I actually really appreciate I love the brand of humour here at least it d be engaging if you kept to the spirit and spun a yarn Tell us a story We wanted to be entertained we wanted to be terrified we wanted to be haunted We wanted to be cursed We wanted to understand just why these places in particular are cursed This book just often felt too light hearted for me and maybe that s the point to lay down an atlas of places that was supposedly cursed but we know curses don t exist now do we Barbara to people who lack imagination who trembled at the mere mention of the Suicide Forest And I do love how this book raises awareness on those places who s not so much cursed as it is the making of mankind sometimes we do curse ourselves unnecessarily as a species I do love how this book raises awareness about climate change about global warming poverty and so on and so forth We as a species must never lose sight of ourselves especially those that we usually call less fortunate I wouldn t call their unsung and unspoken tales a real life horror story that d be an absolutely unfair judgement towards their plightBut sadly this is the bane of my generation I guess no pun intended I was born in the dark whereas you merely adopted it I have braved the dark waters of the internet in search for truly horrific and disturbing tales and frankly if I may be so honest I ve watched videos on Youtube interesting than the contents of this book Still three stars since I uite enjoyed the ride the aesthetics and it was indeed fairly entertaining could use photographs of the actual places instead of just maps though A nice addition to my bookshelf

    Atlas des lieux maudits E–pub READ 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

    Atlas des lieux maudits E–pub READ I was SO excited for this book I can’t begin to tell you how eagerly I started reading it I first started reading it on a long haul flight so when I struggled I figured it was just the flight messing with me and I put it away Two weeks later when my jet lag was fully recovered and I was wanderlusting once I tried againStill no luckThe introduction is very good but a book can’t stand on an introduction alone “The cases described in thi

    Atlas des lieux maudits E–pub READ While certainly a very pretty book with several lovely mock historical maps in it The Atlas of Cursed Places suffers from a distinct lack of research into the places it mentions Some of the stories are close to accurate some are little than repeats of commonly told urban legends appearing all over the internet The worst

    Atlas des lieux maudits E–pub READ 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 co

    Atlas des lieux maudits E–pub READ You'd think that just based on the title of the book that I would love this one but you'd be wrong And you guys this book is a thing of beauty to hold and flip through How did such a wonderful premise go so wrong? Yes it has lovely maps something I always geek out about and there are some interesting nuggets but overall this one simply fell flat in the execution Each location has about a page of information and a map and maybe some diagra
