House of Small Shadows (2013)
language
English
3.5 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: That was, by far, the singularly, most f*ed up book I think I have ever read. And I've read Lovecraft. I can't even figure out what just happened there at the end. I have never been so thoroughly disturbed. That's the mark of a great Horror book. But holy crap. I may never be abl...

review 1: There are many small pleasures to be found in "The Ritual," even if it never quite adds up to a coherent whole. It seems to me that Nevill's "prose reach" far exceeds his "prose grasp." He never quite gets to that special place that his acknowledged influence Cormac McCarthy in...

review 1: I'm rather torn over this book. On the one hand I think there was a gripping occult thriller story lurking in there, and I did keep reading to find out what happened. But the writing style was a huge problem for me: over long, repetitive, and in dire need of more active editing. ...
Apartment 16 (2010)

review 1: Dos palabras definen este libro al inicio: atractivo y muy impactante. Una palabra define a este libro en su desarrollo: asqueroso. Y disculpen si uso este término, pero lo es. Cuando el autor se propone crear la atmósfera para el personaje (¿antagonista?) Seth, de verdad no lo p...

review 1: Really torn on this one. On the one hand Nevill is a master at creepiness. His intricate descriptions of the characters, settings, marionettes, taxidermy, and dioramas in this book are nothing less than horrifying. On the other hand, the main character was unlikable, and the plot...
El Ritual (2012)

English

review 1: This book was spectacular! Greatest piece of horror I've ever experienced! The first half was a better, gorier version of Blair Witch Project/Slender kind of horror. And the second half slows down a bit to show us the darker sides of humanity and explain the ritualistic society t...
Apartamento 16 (2010)

review 1: When I started reading, I thought this was going to be a typical British haunted house story. It turned out not to be, the plot is closer to the plots seen in H. P. Lovecraft than Henry James, Edith Wharton or Wilkie Collins. Barrington House is not the Bramford, and yet it does...

review 1: Although initially intrigued at the very start of this book, I felt that the story dragged a little and never really reached a climax. However, there was enough there to keep me reading and I felt that Nevill really depicted the 2 main characters - Seth and Apryl - very convincin...

review 1: I can admit this wholeheartedly: I am an Adam Nevill fan. I like how he writes the creep factor. It's very atmospheric. I did like Apartment 16 but just not as much as I loved his other books. Apartment 16 is told from two different POVs in alternating chapters. The first is Seth...
