Most of the book's photographs are of the abandoned asylums, themselves. These are scary enough, but there are also drawings and photographs of the horrors inflicted upon the inmates, including a photo of a doctor performing an & pick lobotomy' in the 1940s. It requires a more mature audience.

This was sent in a timely manner. Great condition. I learned a lot from this book about abandoned asylums.

Elaborately constructed insane asylums were once a common sight on the outskirts of our 19th and 20th century cities. The ones that remain serve as a grim reminder of the horrible mistreatment of the mentally ill. The most frightening stories in this book concern the living, not the dead. The few ghosts the author did discover are pale remnants of the cruelty inflicted upon the inmates of these gothic structures.

Troy Taylor, President of the American Ghost Society is listed as the consultant for these eleven stories of sadism and misbegotten medicine. Most of the book's photographs are of the abandoned asylums, themselves. These are scary enough, but there are also drawings and photographs of the horrors inflicted upon the inmates, including a photo of a doctor performing an `ice pick lobotomy' in the 1940s. The `ice pick' "is forced into the brain through the eye socket." It appears as though the operation is being performed under non-sterile conditions, and without anesthesia.

Are these really the kind of stories you want your pre-teen to read?

The book's language is simple and dramatic, and some of the more difficult words such as `ice pick,' `inmates,' and `insane' are defined in a glossary. An adult could probably read through "Abandoned Insane Asylums" in less than half-an-hour. This book has very little to do with the supernatural, and is primarily concerned with the mistreatment of mentally disturbed patients. The stories within are: "Bedlam at Bethlem" (Bethlem Royal Hospital, Moorfields, London, England); "A Doctor is `Cured'" (Christian Church Hospital, Kansas City, Missouri); "The Tree of Tears" (Bartonville Insane Asylum, Bartonville, Illinois); "Lost But Not Forgotten" (Athens Mental Health Center, Athens, Ohio); "The Scary Sounds of Soft Walls" (Fremantle Lunatic Asylum, Fremantle, Australia); "A Small City of Misery (Philadelphia State Hospital at Byberry, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania); "Murder at the Metropolitan" (Metropolitan State Hospital, Waltham, Massachusetts); "Trapped by Fire" (Seacliff Lunatic Asylum, Seacliff, New Zealand); "Taking the Care Out of Caring" (Whittingham Hospital, Whittingham, England); "The Cold Bath Cure" (Dixmont State Hospital, Kilbuck Township, Pennsylvania); and "Ghosts That Won't Be Tied Down" (Monson State Hospital, Palmer, Massachusetts).

A map, bibliography, glossary, index, and an internet site where a reader can learn more about abandoned insane asylums are provided at the back of this 32-page book. I really can't recommend this book for 9 - 12 year-olds. It requires a more mature audience.
