I love that most Goosebumps books have a twist to them. A turn of events that the reader doesn't see coming. I'm really good at figuring books out but this one, a simple Goosebumps book, actually surprised me. I did not expect the twist and I honestly thought that the story was heading in a completely different direction. The only thing I didn't like about Welcome To Dead House was Josh. He was super annoying and I just wanted to smack him and tell him to hush.
Other than the one annoying character, I loved this book and love that the series began with a bang.
Rating: 4 Stars.
K and I read about a chapter or two a night before bedtime and he is always asking if I can read one more chapter.
With Welcome to Dead House we are introduced to Amanda and Josh who will be moving to a new place called Dark Falls (which I love the name) when they first see their new home it isn't what they expect it to be. The house is old and the street just seems dark and creepy, it also doesn't help that Amanda is seeing someone in her bedroom window but who is it?
When they move in Amanda is starting to see things and to top it off their family dog Petey is not acting normal but her parents do not believe her or her brother. What is really Dark Falls and is it a safe place to live? When you find out what goes on within Dark Falls you can't help but go wow didn't think of that as you might have thought they were something else instead.
This author does a wonderful job with not only the characters but also the scenes. They have that creep factor to them which is perfect.
Question and Answer with K.
1. Did you like this Goosebumps book?
"Yes I did it wasn't scary.
2. Would you recommend this book to your friends?
"Yes as all of my friends in my class read these books"
3. Did you have a favorite part?
" I liked all of it."
With these books he really is enjoying reading. These books takes him to a whole different world filled with adventure and disgusting monitors or spooky ghosts only an eleven year old would enjoy.
And it's way better than his face locked on to an iPad or iPhone. At least with a book he is exercising his mind and imagination.
So there you go, out of all the Goosebumps books I've read this is the only one that has some balls.

Only just started reading this series, but good start.
I wasn't completely terrified, but it was a little creepy.
Nice and short too.
