The Haunting of Sam Cabot by Mark Edward Hall
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received "The Haunting of Sam Cabot" for free or a reduced price on Amazon.com. In return I am giving this honest review. This is one of the books read during the "Dewey Read-A-Thon."
The positives of this book are the hooks; The cover, the title, and the plot line. Also, Sam Cabot is a writer / veteran who gets haunted.
Another thing I appreciated is that Mark Edward Hall knows his trades people. He understands the kinds of jobs that they do. Author Hall knows what they need for the job. It boosted the most interesting aspects of the book.
I loved the generational or historical threads. They were too short, but had they continued, it could have made this a five star book.
The negatives were that I felt like I missed a first book and came in at the middle of the haunting. There was too much left not addressed. Why was the "Farnam House" after a Cabot? There seemed to be no tie in.
The Haunting of Sam Cabot is a creepy and supernatural book that will give a little thrill. It was a fast read.
