The Haunting of Vancouver Island: 04/28/20
The Haunting of Vancouver Island by Shanon Sinn is a tour guide of rumored haunted locations on Vancouver Island and nearby islands. The book is organized geographically, starting down at the southern end of the island, and working up and out from there.
I heard about this book on Facebook a month or so before it was first published. Last year when we were planning our twenty-fifth wedding anniversary road trip I purchased a copy. My plan was to read the book and note down interesting places to visit during our week on the island.
Unfortunately COVID-19 has shelved our plans. We must stay in California. The events along the way are all understandably cancelled. Disappointment and worry about the future has clouded my reading enjoyment.
The first chapter, as well, soured my potential enjoyment of this book. Not completely, but enough to re-contextualize subsequent chapters.
Before I pass judgment one way or the other on the book of the whole, I plan to re-read it when it's possible to do our trip. Whenever that's possible, I revisit The Haunting of Vancouver Island

I’m sorry about your plans but I’ll be interested to know what you think of the places you visit from this book when you go.

The border has been closed now through June. We have plans now to have an elaborate backyard picnic for our anniversary. We'll go sometime in the future.
