One of the first serious studies of the supernatural written in the English speaking world, written in 1848. As the author emphatically points out, in Germany this phenomena had been taken very seriously by psychologists and scientists for a long time and had come up with much incontrovertible material. The author provides a case-still relevant today as ever- as to why we simply cannot dismiss the reality of supernatural and parapsychologist phenomena simply because it cannot at this stage be se [...]

It took me awhile to get into this book. Crowe has a very definite outline to her book. She starts by focusing on the dreams of people, and how they may be able to foretell events, from this she looks at ghosts or spirits of the recently dead visiting people in dreams, then to apparitions visiting people when awake, and then appearing to people not just at the time of the death to say goodbye but as regular hauntings of either people or places. She recounts the stories of many different people, [...]

Take a Walk on the Night-Side . . .In The Night-Side of Nature, Victorian author Catherine Crowe explores and examines various paranormal phenomena such as ghosts, doppelgangers, wraiths, precognitive dreams, visions, presentiments and more.On the whole, this is an interesting book, filled with many fascinating anecdotes and stories having to do with the supernatural. Crowe is at her best when relating these tales of ghosts, hauntings, etc but she can glaze your eyes over a bit when she is expou [...]

I loved this book! Although is was written around 1848, it's still as timely as ever. The author gathers together many experiences with the supernatural, from believers and non-believers alike, and shows us without a doubt there is another world beyond our earthly existence. This book proves that when we die, our spirit continues on to the next realm. I found this book to not only be very interesting, but very comforting as well, knowing that I will see my loved ones and pets who have passed on, [...]

I was surprised how good this book was for being published originally in 1848. There are hundreds of reasonably verified accounts involving Prognostication in Dreams, Doppelgangers, Ghosts, Hauntings, Poltergeists, etc. etc. Crowe's perspective is more that of early Greek Platonism than conventionally religious or scientific. She was primarily a Novelist and a good writer, and the book's a good read, inspite of her sometimes marathon-length sentences. The book went through many reprints. (It is [...]

Nice Victorian-era collection of ghost stories. Mid-19th c. retelling of a sizeable collection of old ghost stories, along with some theories as to the origin and nature of spirits and apparitions, in accordance with the contemporary fascination with spiritualism and mediums and seances.

I struggled to finish this book, got about halfway and gave up. It's full of interest but being written in 1848 it really feels like it. Maybe I'll go back to it at some point.
