This book is so engagingly written I often had a hard time putting it down for the night Jeff Belanger has really done the legwork in unearthing every stone and peering into every nook and cranny to uncover the little known people, places and things that have influenced the Bay State A floating island crashing into waterfront backyards Cars rolling uphill Ghost ships, balancing rocks and Bigfoot It s all here amusing, mysterious, scary and strange There are giant chairs, spooky abandoned asylums and the Cat in the Hat Did you know Dr Seuss was from the Bay State How about a Sacred Cod in the House of Representatives and a Holy Mackerel in the State House You will enjoy this wacky ride from one end of Massachusetts to the other, and you can rest assured you won t be missing anything along the way I haven t had this much fun between the pages of a book in a long time Here s the award for the funniest and most devious story in the book The Cape Cod Canal Resident Tunnel Permit How many tourists have driven the length of the canal hoping to find this local oddity C mon, was it you I live in this weird state and have heard some of these folktales and legends It s great to see them in print and to recognize some of the places I fit right into this state.
A mix between anecdotal stories, folklore, and historical information about obscure landmarks A fun not serious read and a must read for the person obsessed with local small town obscure adventures.

despite massachusetts being my home state, and being very familiar with many of the towns and quirks mentioned in this book, i just could not get into it usually i suck these books up like water and re read them constantly with weird illinois i actually took a state make a color coordinated different attractions i wished to visit , but this one was almost a chore to read it was still interesting and very true to the weird state s tradition, but i just found the stories of MA very mediocre maybe massachusetts just isn t that weird.
It was just an ok read A lot of it dealt with stuff that wasn t weird or interesting to me so I skipped quite a few stories I got this book from the library under the impression that it was a travel book, which would tell me cool places to visit Instead with some of the stories it was hard to even figure out where they took place until reading further in Even then not all places gave concrete info on where to visit these areas even though they were public places Some really needed photos, but didn t provide any So for addresses and photos I d have to search the internet I would have liked to hearghost stories from the area and would have loved an index in the back of town by town As I said, an ok read, but I wouldn t bother reading it twice, and has no gotta buy it value to me.
