    It was okay. There were a few interesting stories, but most of them were just... meh.

    An interesting look @ Hollywood & other Southern California locales.We are treated to stories about: Movie Stars, Movie Moguls, Famous & unique architecture, ghosts, legends, murder, suicide, mayhem, trials, and more.Many stories although short, include the websites of the contributor so that the reader may read more about the subject.I found the book to be lacking, I prefer more details when reading non-fiction.

    Another interesting and intriguing installment in the Weird collection. I like the way the editors provide information on various topics and histories instead of limiting the book to just one (ghosts, monsters, etc) like so many others do. This method provides a more well-rounded introduction to the weirdness of the region.

    Re-treads quite a few stories from Weird California.I think I enjoyed the chapters on the ghost stories and the unsung Hollywood heroes and legends the most.If you have an interest in stories about Hollywood and it's surrounding areas, this is a fun book. You aren't going to get a lot of in-depth info, but you do get a taste.

    My sister-in-law and her fiance got this for my husband and I for Christmas. Definitely right up my alley. If you live in LA, this book is a must have. If you love facts, this book is a must have. As someone who lives in LA and loves facts, this book is great. Now to go to all the placed mentioned in it.

    I've collected a lot of "weird stuff around Los Angeles" books over the years, but this is one of my favorites.

    This book probably isn't for everyone, but I thought it was a fun read. I've never been to Los Angeles, but this makes me want to go just so I can check out some of the places mentioned in the book.
