To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It seems like that the most popular Goosebumps books are pretty annoying to me. This one was annoying because the parents didn't act realistically and the twist was meh. I knew the monsters were real from the beginning. The dialogue modifiers are getting annoying because the author tends to reuse them in all of his books. However, I did like how Lizzy solved how to get away from them by actually pinching them.

This story was pretty intriguing. I am 22 years old and I am studying to be a math teacher, and one of my assignments for a class was to read a children's chapter book. I decided to read this one, because I have read an R. L. Stine book in the past, and I love scary movies and books. I thought some of the parts were pretty sappy, but I was surprised how much the story intrigued me and made me want to keep reading. There are many references to numbers of things within the book, which can be used to help teach your kids or students about math. I do not recommend this book for really young readers, because it would probably be too scary for them. However, I do recommend it for grades 2 or 3 and up, especially if it is an assignment close to Halloween. The children should enjoy it immensely, that is if they are into scary stories.
