Ing bats darken the skies the Nevada Triangle in Atlas des MOBI #180 the Sierra Nevada mountains where hundreds of aircraft have disappeared and Aokigahara Forest near Mount Fuji in Japan the world's second most popular suicide location following the Golden Gate Bridge While certainly a very pretty book with several lovely mock historical maps in it The Atlas of Cursed Places suffers from a distinct lack of research into the places it mentions Some of the stories are close to accurate some are little than repeats of commonly told urban legends appearing all over the internet The worst part is the factual errors made in several stories one glaring one being that King Tut is not displayed in Cairo but his mummy remains in his tomb and the lack of completion of the stories Several feel unfinished as if the author repeated what he knew about a place and stopped there without looking into any details A good example of this is the story about Stull Cemetery which he repeatedly states there is no way of knowing how the story that this cemetery was a gate to hell began when I found this information out in less than five minutes with Google So while a very pretty book not a very useful one to anyone with than a passing knowledge of urban legends and cursed places Book received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Atlas des lieux maudits

Oliver Le Carrer brings us a fascinating history and armchair journey to the world's most dangerous and frightful places complete with vintage maps and period illustrations in a handsome volume This alluring read includes locations that are rife with disaster chaos par This was a fantastic concept but it fell flat in execution for meThe book had a lot of good information but the reading felt very dry for most of the book There were a lot of old maps of where each area was but the scale was often so close up I couldn t get a good world reference I also would have rather had photographs of each area rather than a full page map So many of these would have been augmented well with images I had to keep going to the internet to find pictures or videos to add to what I was reading When I found images it brought the stories and history to life for me Without them I just wasn t engaged Perhaps a second edition with photographs would really make the difference for readersI plan to look into Aokigahara Suicide Forest This area sounds so devastating I hope the government looks into providing suicide help and education for the area Thank you Netgalley and Black Dog Leventhal Publishers for a free digital copy in exchange for an honest review
