    1 thought on “The New England Grimpendium”

    1. I'm morbid, and have been for as long as I can remember. Graves and cemeteries and, in general, the grim and gruesome side of history fascinates me. I'd rather read about the Black Death and its preceding famine and parallel religious wingnuttery (and murderous excesses) than contemporaneous lords and ladies and royalty and all the ins and outs of court protocol and intrigue. (Big, fat YAWN more often than not.) Charles II and his mistresses rate very low on my Interest-o-Meter in comparison to [...]

    2. Overall I found Ocker's book to be well written and full of interesting pieces about several different dark events and stories in New England. However I think it might have benefited from a bit less irreverence and a little more impartiality. Why? Well maybe I should explain what sort of book The New England Grimpendium is. Ocker's Grimpendium while documenting the various darker bits about and from New England is very much the cynics guide to these things. Ocker makes it clear in the introducti [...]

    3. I so thoroughly enjoyed J.W. Ocker's Poe-Land that I had to read more from him.The New England Grimpendium is another travelog, in this case arranged by theme rather than location. Ocker scours New England looking for 1) Horror Legends and Personalities, 2) Infamous Crimes, Killers, and Tragedies, 3) Horror Movie Film Locales, 4) Notable Cemeteries, Gravestones, and Other Mememto Mori (one of my favorites), and 5) Classic Monsters (another favorite), which focuses on sites relating to local tale [...]

    4. "If New England is a spooky attic at the top of the country, then you're about to read the account of a man who has rifled through the attic as if it were the afternoon before Halloween and he hasn't found a costume yet." If you are moving to or visiting New England and love the macabre, get this book immediately. It's a road trip guide to 200 sites that are a wee bit morbid. I have read this author's other books, seen him give a lecture, and followed his blog; therefore, much of the contents of [...]

    5. Lightweight, but cool tour of creepy sites in New England. The author clearly shares my taste for the dark and morbid.

    6. I was given this book, along with others, as a xmas present, and I feel awful someone had to spend money for this.It was by far, one of the worse written books Ive had the misfortune of reading.I thought it would be useful to just jot down some facts/info for research, but quickly found that it was just so lame to read, that I had to by pass the first & last sentences just to get to the facts of each section. I gave up close to the ending of the book, I couldnt stomach the corny "wit" and 5t [...]

    7. I have to say this was one of the only non-boring tour guides I have ever read. Ocker made sure he kept enough of his personality in this book through and through.It was well written and not just some "ghost chase" like a lot of the paranormal books out there. It was honest, if he didn't see some amazing event he didn't sugar coat it for extra interesting. It wasn't even all about that, it had the weird places that really describe New England (You can't really deny that it ISN'T a weird place.) [...]

    8. I liked the subject matter of this book, weird things in New England, but the sarcastic tone of the book is off-putting. The author lists many interesting New England oddities and in the same paragraph almost makes fun of anyone that would be curious to see them. It's one thing to discount ghost stories and legends, it's another to make fun of your target audience for being into them. I did like and appreciate all the Pee Wee's Big Adventure references

    9. If you want to look up spooky places in New England, take this book along. If you want great writing, this is not the book to read. I barely made it through the book because of the "oh so clever" banter of the author. Ugh.The book had some fascinating nuggets of joy and macabre, so it is worth a try, especially for graveyard ethusiasts.

    10. This is a very fun travelogue of obscure information. There was all sorts of cool and creepy trivia about scenic New England.The author is a blogger. Sometimes his writing is really funny, but sometimes it's a little too conversational and a touch annoying.

    11. If you are interested in the most obscure of the obscure about supernatural New England this is your volume. I loved it in spite of the sometime weird gothic style the author writes in. I may even go buy it or at least have someone give it to me as a Christmas present.

    12. This book has everything for looking for the bizarre in new england and the directions on how to get there. Also check out Ockers great website Odd Things I've Seen

    13. I've been a fan of the Odd Things I've Seen website for several years and this book did not disappoint. J.W. Ocker's writing is quirky, witty, and delightful. This book is great.

    14. Well written, witty, and genuinely interesting. Although I may be biased, as Ocker more than once references 'Pee Wee's Big Adventure' (one of the greatest movies in the history of cinema).

    15. I originally thought this wasn't a book I'd want to own. Then I read it, and it was so much more, and so much better, than I expected.

    16. I found this book to be interesting (coming FROM New England, how could I not?) but I thought he was a LITTLE too cheeky about the commentary; otherwise, I thought it was a good read.
