The Ghost Box by Catherine FisherFull review at http://thebookshelfgargoyle.wordpress... from May 5th 2014.
I received a digital copy of this book for review from the publisher via Netgalley.
Ten Second Synopsis:
Sarah finds a box. Sarah finds a boy. Boy wants box opened. Problems ensue.
The first thing that grabbed me about the book was the stunning cover art. Really, you could just blow that up and stick it on the wall for instant atmosphere, couldn’t you? The first thing I appreciated about this book was the fact that it felt, for all intents and purposes, like your average late MG/early YA read. There was nothing about the writing to indicate that this was a book for kids still gaining literacy skills. The dialogue wasn’t stilted, the characters were well fleshed-out for the limited word count and the content was appropriately atmospheric and engaging.
While the story related in The Ghost Box is fairly formulaic, Fisher has really set the tone beautifully with some fantastically suspenseful and creepy bits. I also really enjoyed the relationship dramas that Sarah experienced weren’t forced, but evolved naturally as part of the story and appeared in the resolution in a believable way.
For the confident reader in the target age group of 11+, this will be a quick, creepy read and one they should enjoy if they are a fan of spooky stories. I think it will also appeal to those confident readers aged 9 and up as there is nothing here content-wise that would be inappropriate for younger readers. I’d also say that this should appeal greatly to that targeted 11+ age group who may struggle with reading, or those in the same age group who need something to bring them back into the reading fold.

A ghost box is a device used by paranormal investigators to channel inaudible voices from what they believe might be ghosts, spirits or demons. Paranormal investigators believe that ghost boxes can be used to hear messages that normally would be inaudible to the human ear.

Hello, Im trying to make spirit box for EVP but i dont have enough knowledge for that. As further I came I need a mic, some type of frequency raiser and an amplifier for speaker and output - speaker. Do you want to make a proper 'ghost box' receiving random snippets of radio transmissions or are you looking for an audio frequency pitch shifter for use at seances? As further i came is set low pass filter under 20Hz and everything under 20 Hz to charge capacitor and to speed up to discharge that capacitor to Hz per second. Most folk seem to use mobile phones or transistor radios as a starting point because to buy one costs much less than buying the components separately. And if you read through the comments you will see reference to radios with the squelch turned right down. I think this is the strongest method provided you live in a very active area.
