    One thought on “The Haunting of Sam Cabot”

    1. This one started off wonderfully and was very engagingen, as the book continued, it became very disjointed and hard to follow and then BAM- a very very sudden ending that didn't really match the vibe of the rest of the book. This was a very uneven read. Great premise, though--Jen from Quebec :0)

    2. In the world of terrifying, ghoulish, and bizarre ghost stories, haunted house, and haunted people. This creepy story takes its reader on a psychological whirlwind of terror. Lock your doors, wrap your shawl around you tight, and take hold of a love one’s hand if you must, but steady yourself for a twisted, terrifying read. The well-written author, Mark Edward Hall, takes his readers a wicked ride. The main character Sam Cabot, whose life quickly, spirals downward and out of control when you m [...]

    3. i should start a shelf here for half-read books. i'm trying real hard not to waste my time reading crappy books. that means abandoning them in various places once i've decided there's little chance of them improving. this is one of those books. two major things bothered me about this book. one, the main character, sam, acts, reacts and feels emotions that simply don't make any sense in any world i've lived in. granted, in the book he's supposed to have been influenced by this nebulous evilness t [...]

    4. Short but exciting! This author definitely takes inspiration from Stephen King. I love a good haunted house story and this one has a nice little twist that I didn't expect!

    5. This is the classic storyline - family see old house and fall in love with it, family move in, things start to go bump in the night. It's a short book and easy to read. There were a couple of twists that I liked but there were also, for me, some unlikely reactions to things that were going wrong. All in all, though an enjoyable read.

    6. Its not an original story.Young couple falls in love with the old run down house and must have it.Creepy things start to happen, but with a twist, this was a fun novella that kept me turning pages. With our stormy weather I guess I was just in the mood for a scary story. . .

    7. Reviewed for Monster Librarian Sam, his wife and son have just bought a dilapidated monster of house in the countryside, determined to see the old hulk rehabilitated and livable for the first time in over forty years. But things aren't adding up, like the previous owner, who keeps visiting despite having already replaced the bits he agreed to, and the creepy old heater in the basement. Then one of the roofers tells Sam about the strange murders that took place in the basement long ago, and hint [...]

    8. Very Scary!The main character of this book, Sam Cabot, stuffers greatly with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). Besides the nightmares, things are not as they should be. The question poised here is could Sam be hallucinating or is he being manipulated by a possible malevolent being. All Sam wanted to do, was to fix up an old abandoned house with his wife and son and become the author he always dreamt he could be. Life does not always allow us to have what we want. Even though this book is ve [...]

    9. Some might say that haunted houses have become a cliche in dark fiction, but in the end it's how you tell the story that gives it its originality.The same can be said for Mark Edward Hall's "The Haunting of Sam Cabot" by Damnation Books.Once you start reading, Hall just won't let you go. It's like being caught in quicksand.His prose has a hypnotic quality, taking you deeper into Sam's head and the horrors that affect him.Although you know very early that there's something wrong with the house th [...]

    10. Read this in one dayI liked this book so much, ended up reading it in one day! I love the paranormal and this filled the bill. Sam and his wife and so wanted to move closer to her parents. The house they found was huge and needed work done on itde and out. Something started to take over Sam's body. He was having a lot of nightmares. This is the first book by this author I have read and won't be the last!!

    11. I found this as a free Kindle ebook and was able to read it in just a couple of days. I found that the beginning was interesting enough to keep my attention, but towards the middle the plot begins to get more and more confusing. By the end I wasn't entirely certain as to what had happened - I felt as though there was no closure in the ending, and I was left scratching my head.Also - fairly disappointed that the book ends at roughly 75% - the last quarter of this was a preview for another book en [...]

    12. This was an OK horror story. I enjoyed the author's writing style and I liked the twist at the end (although I did figure something like that was going to happen about halfway through the story). This is a pretty quick read if you're looking for something short.This is most likely just me, but when they were describing the heating system for the house, I just kept picturing Kevin from Home Alone and his mental battles with their furnace lol. I think it made it a bit less scary for me :)

    13. A true page TurnerI love a good mystery but I read this late into the night. And boy did I have some weird dreams. Books don't normally do that to me but this one did. Almost as good as watching a good thriller movie at night. Poor Sam was overwhelmed by the house

    14. Fine writingThe author has talent. You become wrapped up in the story and in the characters themselves. While not my style of supernatural thriller, this is very well written and I enjoyed most of the story.

    15. Creepy!I enjoyed going on this ride. Wish it was scarier but it was still good. The descent of the characters was creepy and well done.

    16. HauntingI chose four stars because the spooky value is pretty high. The story pulled me in and carried me along. Loved the ending.

    17. Extremely, extremely creepy. Messes with your head in a big way. The ending was a bit of a shocker, too. Loads of scary fun!

    18. Even once I got to the end and understood the events, I found the main character, Sam, to be a very frustrating individual. Reading the book, you see him, time after time ignore the feeling that Something Is Very Wrong and proceed with his descent into crazy. It's a classic tale of a family who buys a house and it turns out to be haunted, but you have it figured out very quickly. There is little suspense, beyond wrapping up a few loose ends. Doesn't really keep you guessing, and the melodramatic [...]

    19. The Haunting of Sam Cabot: A NovelThis is a cautionary tale. When you’re a less-than-stable main character and you’re driving through the country and you see a huge, but lovely fixer-upper in the middle of nowhere that is for sale, don’t stop. When there’s a creepy old caretaker who gives you a tour and everything from the overgrown lawn to the monster of a heating system gives you the heebie-jeebies, don’t offer to buy the place. Don’t move in. Nightmares, anxiety, murders, and ghos [...]

    20. I quite like a good haunt, but this was not a good haunt. It had a bit of everything, too much for my liking. A haunted house with a supernatural furnace needing bodies for food. A slimy monster living in the well in the garden eating a young man sent to test the quality of the water who "accidentally" fell into the well and an ex owner killed in the war years, but still alive and feeding the furnace. These are not spoilers, I could not spoil more than was already spoilt. And Sam Cabot? He was h [...]

    21. Not scaryI gave it 3 stara becauae I like the Author But this story was just not good. It was extremely slow and at times kinda dumb. I gave it a chance but wanted to stop more than once

    22. LikedI really liked the book the story kept me reading and wanting to know what would happen next the ending to me surprised me

    23. Page turner!Really enjoyed this book got you gripped from page one until the end. Good twist which I never saw coming! Great characters.

    24. EntertainingI feel like this book was pretty good, but it could have been better with the correct author and editor.

    25. So-So!Not a very good story! I guess I am not crazy about this author. It may be that i am too accustomed to King and Poe!
