~Coldheart Canyon~

by Clive Barker

A guest review by Lara Frater

 

Heroine: plump/abundant

 

      When famous actor Todd Pickett goes missing after blotched plastic surgery, his most fanatical fan, a fat housewife named Tammy Lauper, decides to try to find
her missing heartthrob. She tracks him to Coldheart Canyon, a great mansion haunted by old Hollywood stars and controlled by Katya Lupi, a silent screen star whose youthful ethereal beauty is still strangely preserved despite decades of hard living, and who will do anything to keep Todd by her side.

 

What worked for me:

       Tammy rocks!  She starts off as a stereotypical character, a fat housewife obsessed with a famous actor; but she turns out to be a tough, sweet-natured and intelligent woman.


       Size-wise, although her weight isn't mentioned, I expected she's
a rather big girl.  

 

What didn't work for me:

          Not enough Tammy in this book, and she should have been given a love interest.
 

Overall:

          I highly recommend this suspense-filled horror novel. Tammy Lauper is a great heroine; do not judge her right away.  She becomes a wonderfully well-defined character as the story progresses.
 

Warning: There are mentions of the occult in this book, as well as some very violent and sexual scenes, including rape and bestiality.
 

If you liked "Coldheart Canyon" you might also enjoy the Halloween reading list, "Delores Claiborne", "Etta Mae's Little Theory", "The Folly of Assumption", and "Such a Pretty Face".
