One thought on “The Boy Who Saw True: The Time-Honoured Classic of the Paranormal

  1. Wendy Gillissen

    I first read this book years ago, when I first became interested in the pararormal, and I have treasured it ever since.The book is the diary of a young boy who grows up in England in the Victorian Era A sensitive boy who can see aura s, spirits and other lifeforms, he would today be described as an indigo child But in the strict British middle class family in which he grows up, he quickly learns to keep his observations to himself.The text is almost exactly as he wrote it down, full of funny lit [...]

    Wonderful I found this book in paperback in my stash Printed in England This boy s journal begins in 1885 It is one of the most remarkable documents of its kind Highly recommend.

  3. Leanna Palermo

    What an amazing journey I was drawn to the book because of a review I read claiming its existence as a classic in spiritualism, clairvoyance and kindred subjects As if that were not eye catching enough for me, this book is from a most unusual perspective a young boy of the late 1800 s who decided to write a diary The edition I am commenting on was printed in 1952, and commented upon by editor, Cyril Scott in order to shed light on the circumstances of its mysterious history The details of the a [...]

  4. Peter Upton

    I last read this about 26 years ago it is the diary kept by a Victorian child who could see and hear spirit entities starting from the death of his Grandfather There are many books like this that test your credibility and I am a believer but not this one because rather than going for fame and fortune the author wrote the book from his childhood diaries but refused to have it published until after his own death I particularly remember his account of going to a Catholic religious service for the f [...]

  5. Sumangali Morhall

    Most of the story comprises the diary of a young boy, living in the north of England at the end of the 19th Century The author at first has no idea that his special gifts of clairvoyance and clairaudience are in the least unusual He is innocent to the fact that not everyone may converse with the deceased, watch gnomes or fairies at play in the garden, or discern a person s health and temperament by the state of his aura Indeed such things are recorded in the same breath as everyday household new [...]

  6. Rachel Hanlon

    I finished this little gem a few night ago and have continued to go back and re read several entries within on numerous occasions Why didn t I find this book a long time ago I m going to give it the benefit of the doubt, and believe that yes it was written by a young boy in the 19th century, but that is only because I believe in the honesty of the human spirit If you haven t read this, and are one to read many esoteric books, this little gem will become the ONLY one you continue to return to I l [...]

  7. Liz Wallis

    I love this book I would recommend this book even to those who have no interest in the Paranormal The humour is unintended, and takes you by surprise right from the start Victorian life as seen through the eyes of a young boy with an unusual talent, and described in an unassuming manner which captivates one disarming any negativity one may feel about the subject matter It is a piece of literature well worth reading for pure entertainment value

  8. Nickolas

    This ones a doozie A little clairvoyant boy who keeps a diary of all the supernatural things he sees but doesnt understand others can t see Supposedly a true diary kept in Victorian England Keep it real

  9. Cindy

    Intriguing and trippy from beginning to end, this book kept my attention until the long dissertations from the Elder Brother This book would have much credibility if the author s identity were known.

  10. Amanda Banks

    The beginnings of New Age thought from a late 19th Century boy Profound, funny and highly readable.

  11. Charis Branson

    I never heard of this book until recently I found it fascinating Lots of things to contemplate I highly recommend it.

  12. charlotte

    Amazing An amazingly , fantastic read.A must read to all skeptical and non skeptical people out their Would recommended to the whole world

  13. Linda

    Published posthumously, this diary, written by a young boy in Victorian London, chronicles his growing awareness of his psychic ability and his connection to spirit.

  14. Sidney Schwartz

    A wonderful book describing how a young boy dealt with his mediumistic abilities, before he totally understood them.

  15. Elizabeth Torphy

    Okay, so the writing isn t great I ll be the first to admit that Hence the four stars But it was written by a little boy in the 19th century as his diary What is so amazing about him He was a gifted psychic without really understanding his gift This is what is so charming about the book His visions, interpretations, and interactions are so real, pure, and beautiful Anyone doing research about English 19th Century society will get a clear vision of language, behavior, societal status structure, e [...]

  16. Andrea

    This book gives you a lot to think about It takes you through the eyes of a child to show you what we can t see on a natural basis I have always believed in seeing spirits and having a special gifts This book reinforces what I already knew.

  17. Max

    p8e young diarist never set out with the intention of carrying convictiond lends validity to what is written The book is a diary of a young boy in the Victorian Era in England so we are treated to the perspective of an innocent boy of that time Great humor in a young boy trying to grow up in our western society.I feel that much of the book compares to the Tibetan series Below are a few things of interest to me that I want to remember Orbs p 124 e protestants did quite wrong not to pray for peopl [...]

  18. Moonshadow

    At first I found this book a bit boring, although interesting because it is the diary of a young boy who sees dead people and elementals Halfway through I couldn t put it down, the visits from Elder Brother are fascinating and what he says about life beyond is amazing and actually very comforting.

  19. Reka

    The narrative of the little boy is quite entertaining and endearing I did enjoy the book in the beginning, although the fact that the author had edited his true diary did make this book seem as increditable to me as another great book of supernatural powers that most of us might find in the motel nightstands Painfully egoistic narrative, but a light and interesting read.

  20. Jessica Lee

    I enjoyed reading this book in conjunction with A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle This book is actually a Victorian Age boy s diary This boy has the gift of being able to see auras as well as many other things The lessons imparted by the visiting entities support most of the messages in A New Earth perfectly.

  21. Elisa Kay

    I enjoyed this book written in diary form by a young boy with second sight It confirmed previous held thoughts and added some gems from the spirit world guides.

  22. Simon Broad

    A great tale told through the eyes and writing talent of a young boy who discovers very early on in his life that he can see things other can t.Told through his diaries, complete with spelling errors which add to the charm of the writing.

  23. Spoonful324

    I am really enjoying reading this book It is diary style and a very interesting concept A little boy in the Victorian times who sees auras, dead people, and is clairvoyant but doesnt understand this and no one else does either.

  24. Nancy

    The Boy Who Saw True is the diary of an English child in the Victorian era who sees spirits and auras and can talk to the dead The book touches on a variety of themes such as reincarnation and clairvoyance and makes for a very interesting read.
