Nije čista petica kao "Kobno ljeto" ili "Vikend u divljini", ali ne može biti ni četvrtica poput "Dragi dnevniče mrtav sam" ili "Zaključna ocjena" :D Nešto između...
Scariest book I've read in this last year. You'll never know when you are going to find out the true killer. Are Elli's vision's only playing a trick on her. When her visions gives her clues about who the true killer really is. When one of her visions show's her, that her boyfriend might be the killer. She has to decide if to believe the police or her boyfriend. I recommend this book to people who like to read about mistery and suspension.

The book was good it was about a girl who has visions about things that might happen.
Her friend works in a diner the girl went walking with her dog and the dog found bones.
The body they found was her mom.
I recomond this book to anyone who likes mysterty books.
What can I say? The Mind Reader is a short popcorn novel designed to quickly immerse the reader into a mystery without all of the unnecessary details. I love reading these books after completing a confusing and time consuming epic.
This is my first R.L.Stine book. I Just now completed this book. It just took two days to complete it.I never felt horror thing in the story but I felt like reading a good thriller or a mystery book.

Coming to the detailed review of the book at the starting I didn't like the book and I was just reading it because I have started. But when I read more than 60 pages I tasted the interesting plot. I didn't expected the first twist of Sarah but I expected the ending. Overall a good small book to read.

You see, this book is outstanding! Really, like, this book is a real Fear Street novel, and it is suspenseful as well!
a murder mystery with a classic feel
I've read this book ages ago...back in secondary school days. I remember this author was so popular among our cliques that we have our own book club dedicated to the author and would exchange books among us if we don't own a certain title.

And of most of the books by this author that I've read, this one definitely stands out. I never actually predicted who was the killer cos usually I manage to point out who.

I think this is another good thriller written by one of my favorite childhood authors. It has psychics/mind readers, and twists throughout the book. I like it how all the evidence points to one person but, it ends up being someone you would least expect. This one is definitely making my list as one of my favorite books by this author. :)
I think I don't need to write a lot about how much I love Agatha Christie and how much I love her style of writing, but I need to confessed that at the beginning I didn't like this storie, but I kept reading it tilll the end. I'm glad that I did that, because this is really good book. I recommend.
This Fear Street book's twists are a lot twistier than other entries in the series. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing, though. It kind of gets annoying after a while, but I must admit that this ending was much darker than I expected. I liked it, though.

This is my favorite R.L. Stine book. I love the thiller factor of this book. If you like ghost stories or murder mysteries, this is the perfect book for you. It's aimed at teens but I loved this.
Always a guilty pleasure, reading the Fear Street series. This one was really good, I love mind reading, and paranormal storylines.
I read this book while in middle school. I was a HUGE R.L. Stine fan and like most of his other books, I couldn't put it down.
It was creepy and scary. It led you to believe one thing and then the ending SHOCKS you completely. I really enjoyed to book.
A short, likeable, guilty pleasure type of book.
It's nice to revisit childhood authors every now and again.

It was kind of predictable, the ending I had in my mind would have been a cooler twist.
This is one of the first books I ever read. Kinda creepy but really fun!
