    1 thought on “The Ghost of Guir House”

    1. Available on Project Gutenberg and LibrivoxHere is an older ghost story that does not follow along classic lines such as having a normal haunting involved. In fact it has more in common with some newer ghost stories and movies in how it resolves.It is pretty much a mystery throughout as a man seemingly on a whim answers a letter not addressed to him asking for assistance and to come to live at Guir House. There is a good amount of suspense as you try to determine what the assistance wanted is an [...]

    2. So Mr. Henley receives a rather strange letter from a Dorothy Guir inviting him to come and assist with some matter or something he eventually goes and embarkes on a series of rather strange happenings upon meeting Ms. Guir and Ah BenThis was quite an interesting and entertaining read, one of those tales where you haven't a clue as to what the outcome will be or could be, some occultic and theosophic stuff is included, some could have been eliminated but I guess it assisted in the reader getting [...]

    3. This starts out as a fairly decent ghost story that quickly devolves into a social commentary praising the benefits of socialism. What started as a paragraph or two of psychobabble became a page or two then a chapter or two until the ghost story itself is lost in the masturbatory thoughts of the author, written apparently for his own self-gratification rather than that of the reader.I could not finish this one and that disappoints me. I thought I had found a diamond in the rough. As it turns out [...]

    4. What a lovely story! I enjoyed this one from start to finish. Beale, about whom much can be written, wrote but little; we can be grateful he put his considerable talents on paper with this ghost tale.A man answers a letter that is not actually addressed to him; he is to go to a certain Guir House in Virginia. He goes, and there are portents that all is not as it should be at Guir House. Gradually, the reader finds out just how different a house it is -- and thereby hangs a memorable Victorian ta [...]

    5. I listened to this as a Libravox recording. At first I was intrigued by the unfolding ghost story. What could have been an interesting love story soon got mired down in philosophy, social commentary, and what seemed like the author's idea of utopia. Near the end I was trying to guess how this romance was going to work out. I believe the author could have made this an interesting short ghost story. For me, there were too many "statements" distracting from the story.

    6. Skip this oneLet's discuss - at great boring length - all the philosophical, religious, moral, social, magical, hypnotic, blah blah blah aspects of life and death. Were all these higher levels of discussions used?? I have no idea! I was so bored I skimmed. There is an interesting ghost story buried in all the mumbo jumbo. Feel free to dig for it if you like. But don't say I didn't warn you to skip this one.

    7. As other reviewers have stated, it started off well and then fell apart halfway through. The execution of the twist was long winded and resulted in tedium by the time the main character finally figured out what was happening. I am all for a good ghost story but the main character drove me nuts with his stupidity. It is interesting as a story of its time, but unless you are a die hard gothic fiction fan, do not waste your time

    8. Listened to this via Librivox and liked that it was not a traditional ghost story. It's a bit odd and has some philosophy in it which may put one off, but I liked it all the same. Especially at the end.

    9. I really enjoyed this romantic melancholy paranormal story! Honestly, I was surprised by my enjoyment of it. a hit outside the box, but no less entertaining.

    10. loved this book listened to it and enjoyed every second of it. The ideas in it are amazing and the ending made me want to cry a bit.
