Sourball. That's what Greg calls his English teacher, Mr. Saur. He's a real grouch. And now he just gave Greg a big fat "F" on his oral report.

He didn't believe Greg's story. About the camera Greg found last summer. About the pictures it took. About the evil things that happened.

Poor Greg. He just wanted to prove old Sourball wrong. But now that h

Ugh, I have NO tolerance for this kind of stupidity!

First, Greg decides to make the story of what happened with the evil camera in Book 1 his non-fiction English report. MORON.

Then, he's shocked when the teacher doesn't believe him and gives him an F. MORON.

Then he decides to get the camera, bring it to school, and prove to his teacher that he was telling the truth. REALLY? REALLY?!?!!? You are going to bring a lethal weapon that could wreck untold damage and end lives to school to prove a fucki

Greg had a report to write on a true story. He decided to write about what happened in the first book. The camera where you took pictures and instead of the picture you took being the one that developed, there was another disturbing image that turned out. His teacher didn't let him finish his oral report and deemed that Greg didn't take the assignment seriously. So he gave him an F.

Greg's parents had told him that if he didn't get good grades on his remaining report cards, he wouldn't be able to

Title: Say Cheese and Die-Again
Series: Goosebumps #44
Author: RL Stine
Overall Rating: 4 stars


The first one terrified me. Like I was so scared of this evil camera, and the second one, although not as spooky, is definitely more suspenseful than the first. It's so good! Definitely one of the top 20 in the series.

He did it again. Another bad ending. Here we have Greg who gets a failing grade because his idiot teacher doesn't believe his "summer story" or whatever it was. So, Greg looks for the camera and bad things happen.

In the first book, if I'm not mistaken, the way to reverse the "curse" was to rip up the photo. In this book they acted as if they had never gone through this before. Greg and his friend panic when the bad things happen to them. I feel they should have started right away with the photos

Well, if it's in THIS series, you can't expect it to be good...This was contrived and weird, just like all Goosebumps books, but this time I'm almost satisfied with the cliffhanger ending.

"Saurball" (the teacher) was unpleasant and unlikable, but I can almost see his point with the bad grade; I wouldn't think the report was true, either, if I were in his place!

This one kind of creeped me out a little bit. The idea of wasting away or gaining hundreds of pounds rapidly does not sit well with my very vivid imagination. The ending was just horrible. I can't think of what the camera will do to the whole class now. If only that butthole of a teacher had gotten is picture taken too.

Currently rereading my original Goosebumps collection

Wow. What to say about this one? As a sequel, it's terrible. It hardly follows the plot or themes of the first Say Cheese and Die. There are plot holes galore. It's never explained why Shari becomes skinny or why the photo is negative. Also, the ending was disappointing. You'll see why once you finish the book. Not a great book in the series. Especially not compared to the first Say Cheese and Die which I loved.

In Goosebumps Say Cheese and Die, by R.L Stine, Greg found a camera last summer that was haunted and got rid of it. However, that was not the last Greg saw of his camera when he had to prove Mr.Saur or as Greg would call him, sour ball wrong when Greg wrote a paper about it and got an "F". Until Greg proves that this camera is real, Mr.Saur will keep his grade at an "F". Greg goes through a lot of conflicts with the camera with his friends. It started when he took a picture of his friend and she ...more

This book was pretty good. It was not the scariest Goosebumps book I have ever read, but it was still good. I would recomend it to anyone who likes a good laugh if i do say so myself.
It is about a haunted camera that when it takes a picture of someone somethng terrible happens. Such as a making a boy weigh over 400 lbs.

Ahhh, the Goosebump days. I would borrow so many of these from the library they seriously considered extending my limit of books checked out at one time. R.L. Stine you were a reprieve from a harsh and dreary childhood in which my mind wandered far away from the troubles of the day. I stole books into my bed and read far into the night by the faintest of lights. I might have better eyesight were it not for you; however, I regret not one page or line.

This is absolutely the best goosebumps book I have read yet. Stine uses amazing detail and even more amazing plots.

The story begins when Greg's English teacher doesn't believe his report, so Greg decides to prove it. He brings back the camera and accidentally snaps a photo of his friend Shari, who snaps a photo at Greg in return. Now this is no ordinary camera, the pictures show odd things, odd things that always come true. Shari's photo comes out negative...what will happen to her? But Greg's i

The original "Say Cheese and Die" is one of the classic Goosebumps books in the series. It has a very interesting story, good scares and action, and a darker, more surprising ending. Plus, the cover is one of my favorites. As for the sequel, I think the cover here is even better than the original. While it doesn't depict a scene from the book like the original, the skeletons on the "Say Cheese and Die-Again" cover are a definite step up. But what about the story?

Well, it isn't as good of course.
well...if there's one thing that i've learned about r.l. stine... he's not too great with second books. although this one is a little bit better than the night of the living dummy series this one makes me question how smart is greg, really?

greg decides to do a report on what he did over the summer, and brings up the creepy camera that he and his friends found. of course nobody is going to believe you!! what makes everything worse though? he wants to prove to his teacher that the camera really d

Say Cheese and Die—Again!
2 out of 5 stars

As a child, my parents did not allow me to read Goosebumps books for fear of giving me nightmares. I was rather intrigued and slightly excited to read my first Goosebumps books. However, my excitement quickly faded within the first few pages. There was a conflict in the story between the main character and an evil camera. The conflict was resolved at the end of the book, when the main character “defeated” the camera. Stine told the story in chronologic

Lets face it, everybody hates the old camera. If you do, you are going to hate this one. This camera takes your picture, and comes out different. For example, if you take your friend's picture, and the picture comes out, you will see that the picture comes out different. Your friend is screaming in pain and yelling for help. This book is the sequel to the first book, so I highly reccomend you getting the first one first. Greg and his friends encounter another dangerous mission when Greg's teache ...more

Where as I feel like this had a stronger plot than the first I found that Greg was beyond stupid and that made it a bit more difficult to read. I definitely liked how the things that affected them do to the use of the camera were definitely something that would take an emotional toll, and since doctors were unable to find any explanation it really made them more isolated?!
Why biggest issue why in the world Greg thought he could tell his classmates and they believe him!? Seriously.

Continuing the Goosebumps reads with my 7 year old daughter and this was one of the more interesting of the books we've read so far. It was "logical" (within it's own rules) and intriguing. It twisted well several times despite always hinting what to expect. I think I enjoyed this one more than she did this time around. She prefers when the evil thing has a personification than when it's just an object.

Sourball. That's what calls his English teacher. Mr. Sour. He's a real grouch. And now he just gave Greg a big fat "F" on his oral report. he didn't believe Greg's story. About the camera Greg found last summer. About the pictures it took. About the evil things that happened. Poor Greg. He just wanted to prove old Sourball wrong, But now that he's dug up the camera, bad things are happening. Really bad things.

The book i am readiNg is SAY CHEESE AND DIE AGAIN. It is a science fiction book. The main character is greg. The story takes place at his middle school. Problem is greg found a evil camera.

The best book among the whole franchise.

Because for a young-reckless abandoned person like me, the concept was good and I wished it has unlimited sequels because what the heck this is so awesome.

And I also wished that time that I wanted to have the deadly camera because yeah, I am a devil with a halo.

This was a fun book and brought back memories of elementary school. After I saw the Goosebumps movie, I really wanted to read some of these books again. This one was definitely for a kid audience, but it was still entertaining to read. Not really scary, but I was always very interested to see what happened next.

Another Goosebumps I mercifully missed as a kid. As an adult, this one is even more disappointing, a nasty ripoff of Stephen King's "Thinner." I keep saying "cheesy," but this book just won't die.

This book was my favorite goosebumps book. It was more suspenseful than the other book. This book is the sequel to say cheese and die. Read my other review first so you'll know what's going on. On this book, Greg wanted to visit his cousins, but to do that, he'll have to get better grades at school. When he told the class about the evil camera, and everything that happened, his teacer gives him an F. So Greg goes back to the coffman house to pick up the camera and prove it to his teacher.

This was an okay Goosebumps book. I liked the first one better, although there are some interesting things that happen in this book.
