Publisher's Summary

Editor's Choice in The Bookseller.

Based on the 'world's spookiest podcast' of the same name comes Unexplained: a book of 10 real-life mysteries which might be best left unexplained....

Demonic possession in 1970s Germany.

UFOs in Rendlesham forest.

Reincarnation in Middlesbrough.

Richard Maclean Smith delves into these mysteries and many more, with a supporting cast bringing to life the unexplained occurrences in this special immersive audio edition.

Based on one of the most successful paranormal podcasts ever, with over 10 million streams and downloads to date, Unexplained consists of 10 chapters focusing on a different paranormal event, from Australia to Germany, the UK to Zimbabwe, using the stories as gateways to a journey beyond the veil of the uncanny, exploring what they reveal of the human experience. 

This special immersive audio edition is narrated by Richard MacLean Smith and features full cast re-creations of the unexplained events. 

Taking ideas once thought of as supernatural or paranormal and questioning whether radical ideas in science might provide a new but equally extraordinary explanation, Unexplained is The Examined Life meets The X-Files

Just as excellent as the podcast.

Very different from the rest of it's genre. Unexplained is thoughtful, well-researched and resists the urge to dumb down like so many other titles before it.

Embarrassingly Tragic Narration!

Good story but the hilariously stupid sound effects that accompany the narration ruin it. Shame.

Brilliant!

Loved it! (as I live the Podcast too.)

Thought provoking and enternaing, Richards voice is melodic in his delivery, and gets you involved in the telling of the tales.

Thank you

Unexpected

A number of disparate but ultimately linked strange stories told in a very matter of fact if not slightly unnerving way by the author. A really interesting listen, but probably best lenjoyed somewhere you feel safe and can switch on the light if needed.

Creepy tales based in truth and science

Some of the tales of true life unexplained events in this book really disturbed me, especially the chapter on the notorious American hotel and the tale of the haunted box. The narration is atmospheric and suited the content well. A creepy, and thought provoking listen.

Exquisite story telling at its best

I absolutely loved this audio book. The worst thing about it though....is that it comes to and end!! I really enjoyed the audio version having devoured all the podcast episodes. Richard has a sharp instinct for delivering a story in a way that keeps excited and interested. I’ve heard (or read) one or two of these stories before but It’s still a joy to listen to this.

Fantastic! Engaging, interesting and unbiased.

Great find. The narration is great, the stories are fascinating. I'm already aware of most of the stories but this book gave more information and really makes you see things from a different standpoint. I hope he writes more! !
