Book Review: Paranormal Intruder | Caroline Mitchell

It may be a small known fact that they actually consider myself a little bit of a wimp. So when it comes to reading books in genres which encapsulate something that could potentially evoke my fears, I generally steer clear. I must admit when I was sent Paranormal Intruder by Caroline Mitchell, it took me quite a while to build myself up to be brave enough to actually read it. This book tells us the real-life account of one family’s dealings with a very nasty paranormal intruder. The contents of this book are what actually happened to Caroline and her family, and I think the fact that the events in this book actually happened made it just that little bit more scary to actually try and read.

But eventually from somewhere I actually managed to grow some balls and read this book. What I was presented with was a very intense read that managed to keep my attention to the very last page. It may seem twisted to say that I really enjoyed this book, considering the fact that it documents the misery this family went through when something invaded their happy home. But this book was truly captivating in the way that it gave a first-hand account of paranormal experiences. I am somewhat of a believer in otherworldly beings and spiritual entities, and have always been curious about that particular world. So what I found in reading this book, was that it added fuel to the fire of my curiosity. I now have a new reaffirmed love for all things paranormal, and actively seek out television programmes or other forms of media in regard to the exploration of this world.

Caroline Mitchell is clearly a naturally skilled storyteller, and I can’t help but admire her commitment to reliving these events in order to tell her story to the world. Everything is told with such clarity that you can’t help but feel like you are actually there with her. While reading, I felt the fear and the intensity that Caroline wrote about and it gave me a better understanding of what she and her family went through.

This is an incredible book for believers and the sceptics, because it gives a true and honest perspective from people who originally didn’t give much thought to otherworldly beings.

Caroline is now a successful author with further books under her belt, while these new books are works of fiction with paranormal elements I have no doubt in her skills as a writer and look forward to reading more from her as soon as I can.

I gave Paranormal Intruder a chilling 10 out of 10
