    1. What a great compilation of stories! I don't know about everyone else BUT I sometimes forget that there are such cultural differences right within our own country. It was wonderful to read these stories that are so rich in Hawaiian culture. Oh, and I learned a few things along the way1) Don't pick up hitchhikers in Hawaii (although it's definitely a sound rule no matter where you are!!)2) If visiting Hawaii and someone calls your name (and you don't know them) keep going! Don't look back.3) IF y [...]


    2. The stories in this book are not meant for a Halloween night by the campfire for children. These stories actually reflect 25 years of study by the late Dr. Grant, who held a doctorate in American Studies from the University of Hawai'i and was a teacher at Hawai'i Tokai International College.No urban legends here about taking pork over the Pali or disasters following removal of lava from the islands (true stories, but, over time exaggerated.) Even if you don't believe in the supernatural, you'll [...]


    3. This is seriously one of the best ghost story books one could ever read. Especially if you're from the islands of Hawaii. It just may be the ONLY ghost story book you'll ever need to read. Although the Chicken Skin series have some good ones as well. I would read this as a kid being obsessed with the paranormal and even now as a young adult, will still never get tired of reading it. There are countless upon countless accounts of ghostly sightings and personal experiences. Enough to keep you up f [...]


    4. Glen Grant collects ghost stories from island residents. The stories are simple and aren't sensationalized. It's more of an oral history project. Have you had a ghostly encounter? Hawaiian ghost stories give me chicken skin/the heebie jeebies. This is a nice reference for Hawaiian/Japanese American ghost stories. Topics include rocks, heiaus, Pele the volcano goddess, menehunes, disappearing hitchhikers, fireballs, and night marchers.facebook/CatOverlordcatoverlord/2013/


    5. I very much enjoyed the content of this book, delving as it does into Hawaiian folklore and the mysteries throughout the island. Unfortunately, though, it really lacked a style I was looking for, a tone that would give me the chills when reading. It is fairly straight-forward reporting with no attempt to set the mood or the tone to suit each piece. For content it rates a five, but unfortunately the lack of atompshere drops it way down for me. In short, it didn't give me chicken skin and I wanted [...]


    6. I still mourn Grant's death because nobody knew the history of the islands better than this author and people trusted him with their obake (ghost) stories. He talks about places and people that don't exist anymore but still manages to make you feel as if they do. Some stories are frankly disturbing and some are just fascinating. I took his Walking Tours of Old Honolulu before his untimely passing so some of these stories were familiar. Not a book to read late at night if you are alone. Trust me [...]


    7. While we were in Hawaii, we did a ghost tour. It was a LOT of fun. Our tour guide recommended Glen Grant, so I picked this book up at the bookstore on our way home. It's a fabulous collection of first-hand accounts of ghostly happenings in Hawaii. The stories really give a new insight to the Hawaiian culture and people.


    8. I had read some of the stories when I was younger and was terrified by the story that took place at Manuka State Park. It stuck with me and I think about it every time I drive past Manuka.
