Preview — The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb by R.L. Stine
The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb (Goosebumps #5)
Gabe just got lost - in a pyramid. One minute, his crazy cousin Sari was right ahead of him in the pyramid tunnel. The next minute, she'd disappeared.
But Gabe isn't alone. Someone else is in the pyramid, too.
Someone. Or some thing.
Gabe doesn't believe in the curse of the mummy's tomb.
But that doesn't mean that the curse isn't real.
This was an alright story because the concept is very common. I've seen stories similar like this from various sources.
Well, this is how story goes: Gabe Hassard is spending Christmas vacation in Egypt with his parents. Gabe's parents own a company, so they are in Egypt for business. However, Gave's Uncle Ben is working at the pyramids and so they take the opportunity to see him. They visited Uncle Ben in Giza and then the s ...more
At first, Gabe is really excited to spend time with his cool Uncle Ben. He loves the idea of exploring a new tomb and takes great delight in telling Sari exactly how mummies are made - in gruesome detail.
But then things get a little strange. The Egyptian man - Ahmed - who works ...more
This isn't my favourite book in the series so far but I was definitely entertained while reading it. I found it interesting to note that Stine strays slightly from the supernatural aspect, and the plot is more realistic in a sense. There are quite a few chuckles to be had in this book and I found myself constantly wondering what was going to happen next.
It follows the same Stine formula as the rest of the series (i.e. cliffhangers at the end o ...more
So this is a story about a kid who have a rich parents with/the most cliche catch, they are always busy so he is taken care by his uncle who is somewhat nice and have a really cool job but have a very ANNOYING daughter. And by annoying I mean really really really annoying that I wished that she dies. Oops spoiler alert she doesn't!
The plot is interesting but it's not that scary and I hated ...more

Este en particular me gustó un poco más que los anteriores que he leído de la serie, porque mete una idea diferente sobre las maldiciones de las tumbas egipcias. ¿Existirán estas maldiciones o no?, ¿serán reales?, en este libro no importa, porque lo que en realidad está ...more
Oh, and a pyramid can't be 13 acres long. An acre is a unit of area, not a unit of length.

I'm gonna read like it's 1994! I was 6 when I first started these books, borrowed 'Night Of The Living Dummy' from one of my friends and I was hooked from there. I read them all through the 90's and loved them. I only stopped when the 'Goosebumps 2000' series came out but I'm not sure if that's because they were rubbish or I was just getting older and had started to lose interest.
These are starting to get better now. You've got to love a good mummy story an ...more
On one hand, The Curse of the Mummy's tomb does differ from the previous Goosebumps books I three major ways. So I at least have to give it some credit for originality. The first difference is that the adults actually play a sizeable role in this one. Like in most Goosebumps books, Gabe (the main character) is left by his parents with a relative. But in this case, his uncle actually is involved in the story throughout. The second difference is the ...more
Dulu waktu kecil saya suka membaca berulang-ulang dan ceritanya tampak sempurna. Sekarang kok ada beberapa bagian yang kurang ya. Salah satunya bukunya terlalu tipis :D

MC: Gabe. Unfortunately a little more chicken than Sari.
The run down: Gabe and his cousin Sari are in Egypt on holiday, but it seems like something's wrong. Maybe… cursed?!
Cliff hangers: 14
Doomed ending: No! Amazing.
"Outstanding!" declared: 3 (low, but a little high for a twelve year old over the course of three days)
Stine's main character for this Goosebumps thriller is called Gabe... and Gabe's favorite word is apparently outstanding, because he only used it about 40 times in this book.
I went back and forth to thinking this book was decent for a good scare (for kids) to being so dumb and lame. (view spoiler)[ The part where Gabe crash landed into the secret room with all the mummies and materials, pretty creepy. The part where Gabe and Sari got kidnapped by Ahmed... pointles ...more
R.L.Stine was my favourite author and I am currently reading his new book 'Red Rain' some years later. Such great childrens books.
