For a writer of series that primarily appeal to boy readers, R.L. Stine has never been afraid to tell his stories from the viewpoint of a girl. Some authors of middle-grade horror might hesitate to use a female lead, fearful of their male readership losing interest, but R.L. Stine has done so many times and always to just as resounding of success as his novels with boy main characters. In the tradition of Carly Beth Caldwell and her terrifying encounters with haunted masks on Halloween, it's no ...more

Our six year old has been reading voraciously and we've trying to encourage that as much as possible, trying to be flexible with the material. She's been trying to find 'creepy' books more and more and so we reluctantly started dipping our toe into Goosebumps. This was the first I read with her and she enjoyed it immensely and I was surprised to enjoy it myself. It had some depth, some decent structure and narration and was entertaining without being overly scary for her. We'll definitely read m ...more

If you like reading about mysteries, thrillers and adventures then you will love this book. Peter and his sister Monica are out trick or treating like any normal kid would do on Halloween night. As they are about to start heading home Peter decides to go to one more house. This one last house will change Peter and Monica's destiny. There are settings like thick woods, ancient Egypt, snowy mountains and a cemetery. My favorite quote is “Normally Im not a fraidy

I think that Goosebumps Hall Of Horrors The Five Mask Of Dr. Scream is a very good book because it has horror you can feel.There was a girl named Monica she had a story its about Five Mask she said it was a bad day for her and her brother.The story begins on a Halloween night Monica and her brother planned on going trick-or-treating with Monica's friends then her brother Karate chopped her friends and they left.Then Her brother said he wants to do one last block and Monica said,"I don't like thi ...more
The Goosebumps books that demonstrate the greatest narrative strength are those that take a normal adolescent life, then toss in a strange occurrence that affects how the characters interact with each other. The rest follows naturally, and is naturally entertaining. For example, How I Learned to Fly and Be Careful What You Wish For... come to mind.

The Five Masks of Dr. Screem does not follow this formula. Instead, its plot serves as an excuse to set up a series of "scary" scenes that are mostly
This was really confusing story because the main characters were going trick-or-treating around the neighborhood and then all of a sudden, they end up in a crazy person's home and they started an adventure of mask collecting and everything was mixed up. They were confused with the words of 2 "villains" and they did not know what would happen if they did not do what they needed to do. I also thought that this was a very creepy book because of one of the "masks" that were used in the story. It was ...more

Geekling picked this book as our first Goosebumps book for me to read aloud. He has read a few others to himself and loves them which makes me happy since they were a favorite of mine at his age as well.
This is one I had not ever read. I guess as an adult I did find it slightly predictable but I still found it enjoyable. I am glad to see that no matter the age Mr. Stine has managed to figure out away to captivate all audiences!!!

It has 183 pages in it. If you like horror books you mite like this one. The book is by R.L. Stine and the name of the book is goosebumps hall of horrors the five masks of Dr. Screem. I like the wolf mask the most and it is pretty cool. I like the first part of the book I really like it a lot. I also like most of the craters they have pretty good text. You mite like this book I think it is good so mite you.

I thought that this book was action packed from beginning to end. Dr. Screem kept throwing unstoppable obstacles at Monica and Peter. Monica and Peter were frightened due to all of the unusual events happening on halloween night. Reading this book made it difficult for me to fall asleep at night. Overall anyone who enjoys action with horror I'd recommend this book.
Monica and her brother are out trick-or-treating when they run into Bella, a woman who has their names already written in a decades-old book. She tells them that the evil Dr. Screem will steal five haunted masks, and indeed he does. In order to save their world, the children must chase after Screem. But, when they put on each mask, it transports them to fantastic (and dangerous) locales.

This was a very good book! I loved reading it and it gave me thrills and chills down my spine. I could just see the exact situation the characters were in! It was an awesome book! I recommend it to R.L. Stine fans and people who love horror stories.

In an effort to bring back the love of Halloween from my childhood I decided to read the goosebumps series as the teen books before I go to bed. They are a little more hokey than I remember, but it did make me feel a little more in tune with the 1985 me...

This book was ok and it finally had the old twist that I loved from his fear street sagas. Good Halloween take for sure.
