The Waiting Room (2010)
language
English
3.81 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Finally got to check out F.G. Cottam with this book. Not the most overwhelming first impression to be honest, the story took a while to get into and the both the story and the characters failed to emotionally engage throughout (this is an entirely personal perspective), but to au...

review 1: The description sounded intriguing and I was excited to start reading it. Sadly, the excitement didn't last as I could not even make it through the first l-o-n-g chapter. And I tried. I tried hard. I started the book three times, could not get into it, and finally gave up... So m...
The Magdalena Curse (2010)

review 1: This one had a good premise but it just didn't connect with me. No man is that macho without being a complete ass. And no teen is that affected without being whiny. So right away I didn't believe the main characters, and if you don't believe in the saintly dad and son what is the...
The House of Lost Souls (2008)
language
English

review 1: This came up as a suggestion when I bought Harwood's The Ghost Writer (no relation to the Polanski movie), and its main failing is the same: after many pages of wonderfully creepy atmosphere and absorbing nested tales, the ending goes right off the rails with a truncated, poorly-...
Dark Echo (2000)
language
English

review 1: This is my favorite of his horror novels thus far. The well developed characters loom large as he shifts narratives from the past to the present. Cottam is well versed in English literature and incorporates bits of history along with the arts and music from the time periods discu...
Brodmaw Bay (2012)
language
English
3.64 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: I am somewhat ambivalent about this book. I really wanted to enjoy but it was very predictable. I also felt the pacing was off. It takes at least half the book before the family actually moves to Brodmaw Bay. After they arrive, everything seems to happen at warp speed. I could ha...
A Casa das Almas Perdidas (2008)
language
English
3.31 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: This was basically a story about a haunted house. A place where something so evil happened it tainted the structure for years afterward. Visiting the house causes the evil to latch onto the visitor, who if was lucky enough to escape the house unscathed, couldn’t outrun the ghosts...
Im Haus des Bösen (2009)
language
English

review 1: To be honest, I was a little disappointed. The first quarter of the book is so plodding that I nearly gave up on it. To make matters worse, there are quite a lot of people, interactions, phenomena, and conversations in this section that are written as though the reader already kn...
