A Scare for All Ages!!!
Reviewed in the United States on December 7, 2016
I am a forever fan of R.L. Stine's books. I found out about the Fear Street series when I was in the 6th grade with the Missing book. From then on I was always reading them, borrowing them from a friend, or ordering them through Troll and Scholastic book clubs. This was waaay back when I was in elementary and high school. Now that I am an adult, I was thrilled when I found out R.L. Stine was releasing Fear Street books again just recently. I had ordered the first one, Party Games, that came out in 2014. My adult self did not really enjoy it because it had felt like it was more for teenagers. But this book! Wow! This book had something for all ages. There was a Goosebumps feeling to it (Goosebumps is R.L. Stine's horror series for elementary and middle graders) and there was a Fear Street feeling to it as well but then there was also a new twist that made it appeal to my adult self. This was the first Fear Street book R.L. Stine wrote that really had gory elements to it. I'm talking about gory as in the 80s horror films "C.H.U.D." and "Day of the Dead." Yes, it's cheesy but also entertaining because it's creepy when you really think about it. I won't spoil the ending but it's predictable, that I can tell you. The reason for the 5 stars is the way this book really made me go wow for transforming a really cuuute character into something out of this world. I know you will have a different opinion about it than I as with other reviewers on here who complained that it was more of a Goosebumps story but eh...everyone has different tastes... From a loyal R.L. Stine fan to another loyal R.L. Stine fan out there: try it out, it's got elements for all ages. To the Christmas 2016 shopper, order it, it's not a waste of your money and time. I don't regret ever ordering it for myself. And I hope it will be for you too!
