      It is full of creepy, interesting and cool facts about nj

    2. Mark Speed says:

      A fairly wide variety of weird stuff from across the Garden State It used to be my job to go over there ever few weeks and visit our clients, so I know the state very well I rate it very highly there are a lot of wonderful things about it I used to fly over on a Saturday, leaving all of Sunday to go and explore.From the legendary Jersey Devil, to ghosts, to lights in church towers, and badly developed photos, it s all in there Very comprehensive Shame I only found it late in that period of my li [...]

    3. Peter Bylone says:

      I m not a big believer in the paranormal myself, but I do believe unquestioningly that people do weird stuff, and this book showed a lot of that stuff from all over my home state I d recommend it for anyone living in or from NJ, whether you re a believer or not It s got a lot of interesting history and certainly some things to throw into party conversations.

    4. Mike Da Silva says:

      If you have lived in Jersey long enough to buy a lunch, chances are you ve heard of this book or the magazine It s got alot of kooky shit in it, and alot of places you really don t want to visit in the night time Makes for a very good outing though, if you can get enough people to go with you.

    5. Halloween Queen says:

      I ve been reading these books since I was a little kid like 6 years old Now I m 14 and some of them still scare me I used to be TERRIFIED of the Pig Lady Also the New Jersey Devil and Big Red Eye, but mainly the Pig Lady So terrified that in the morning if I d hear a breathing sound, I d think it was her and it would keep getting louder since I kept getting scared If you want to be scared, pick this up Especially if you re like me in New Jersey and your town happens to come up for one of them Y [...]

    6. Valerie says:

      Great book Good conservation piece as well.

    7. Chuck Skorupski says:

      It lived up to the title and was as entertaining as the website NJ just has all of these little nooks and crannies not all right near a Turnpike exit that are just off It, like much of America has these oddities in otherwise mundane urban or suburban areas that one might drive past every day when one suddenly thing just what is that anyway And lest we forget the magic of roadside attractions To quote Neil Gaiman in American Gods In other countries, over the years, people recognized the places of [...]

    8. Lore says:

      The best thing about Weird N.J is how responsive the publisher was when I wrote to complain about one of the stories being illustrated with an inappropriate and completely not humorous photograph of a lynched man The publisher quickly apologized, eliminated the photo from the next reprint, and sent me an updated copy of the book with another apologetic letter The book itself is a quirky travelogue, good as a coffee table book, especially for people who know New Jersey There are a couple of spots [...]

    9. Robert says:

      Once upon a time I was into Weird New Jersey The magazine highlights interesting and weird places in New Jersey The interest grew over the years to expand beyond the state That is when things got weird pardon the pun for Mark and Mark The franchise lost its appeal as they went national, had a television show, and began publishing books.This first book about New Jersey was basically a re print of articles from the magazine put together in an anthology Overall, for longtime readers, this was disap [...]

    10. Jaime Krause says:

      I m from NJ and while I recognize a few names places Weird Things, I was surprised at how little I did know about our weird state Some of the history bored me even though some was interesting just because I m not a history person I ve known of Midgetville and the Albinos, but it s still an eye opener to read how people even currently will scream MIDGET or ALBINOS out car windows There are some obscure things and people though, like an albino midget cannibal That made me roll my eyes Some things [...]

    11. Erin14 says:

      I am currently reading my two latest Weird NJ magazines It is possibly the best magazine ever created If you love the supernatural, aliens, or anything weird, this magazine is for you It is printed twice a year and is just fantastic The majority of the magazine is comprised of letters from New Jersyians who have experienced the bizarre or fantastical The staff also does full pieces too Everything in this magazine is AMAZING I save all of my copies because they are JUST that good

    12. Jennifer says:

      I just noticed I never wrote a review about this book from any past book websites Well, simply put, it is clearly the best book out of the Weird series If you are a fan of the magazine or a sporadic reader , it may seem redundant But it is a great book to pick up for a friend who is moving to the state, or just to keep on hand for visitors to read.

    13. David Bales says:

      New Jersey s strange legends, abandoned everythings, monsters and UFO sightings are chronicled in a pretty good installment of the Weird series New Jersey seems to have a pretty good stock of urban legends in its history.

    14. Steven Eckardt says:

      Weird NJ books are interesting if you like going to scarey, haunted, creepy, abandoned or just weird places this is a book that you should read If you even just like reading about that kind of stuff than this would be a good book to read.

    15. Davis says:

      I ve read the magazines for years Finding this although it was a long time ago itself was wonderful The paranormal fascinates me, so does local history of N.J There was really no way this book could disappoint me It gets 5 5.

    16. Colleen says:

      I read a majority of this book in the past but read the rest of the stories this year Weird NJ never fails to amaze me every story and personal account gives me the chills I love it
