So I've been in a very nostalgic mood lately, and have decided I want to re-read some series that I liked as a kid but haven't thought about in years. I particularly loved this Nightmare Hall series for reasons I can't seem to recall, so I thought that would be a good place to start. Unfortunately, my library doesn't carry ANY of these anymore, and I am having to get every one of them from Interlibrary. What a pain! The first hasn't come in yet, so I ended up starting with the second , but I don ...more

I love 90s books like this so I liked it but as part of the Nightmare Hall series/the sequel to The Silent Scream I was a bit disappointed... Silent Scream was very exciting and even scary (especially when reading before bed) but Roommate was a lot slower, didn't get real exciting til the end, and honestly I wasn't in love with the characters either.

Second entry in nightmare hall series and the second book is already ghost written by Nola Thacker. I guess the first book is a smash hit that the second book must be made quickly so they hire a new writer since the original author couldn't meet the deadline possibly.

The only difference I see is mostly the dialogue. Hoh's dialogue is more "casual" but Thacker's dialogue feels like it's trying to be hip and trendy with strange phrases she used. I honestly prefer Diane
Another quick read. Took me just under two hours. I do love these refreshing books. It makes me feel accomplished to be able to just finish them so quickly.

The writing style may be a bit simpler, not as many details, and all the characters are always full of mysteries only revealed at the end.

These books all seem to have a similar pattern, so beware of that if you read to many of them in a row.

This particular one was very interesting, with a wonderful twist at the end. Rushed? Yes, but worth a r

This wasn’t as good as the first book, but it wasn’t bad. I spent the entire story wondering which of the roommates was the crazy one. The author did a wonderful job keeping you guessing because to be honest, they all seemed a little off to me. All of the characters were written in a way that made them seem suspicious. Even the most normal character, Danni, was paranoid as hell. About two-thirds of the way in, I figured out who the psycho was. There were two very blatant hints dropped and I auto ...more

This was my very first Nightmare Hall book when I was an eighth grader at Matafao Elementary School in Faga'alu, American Samoa. I tell you, I loved it from the beginning but then turned against it by the end of the book. The ending is a shocker, that I can tell you! All of Diane Hoh's books can be disturbing, in an exciting sort of way. Read at your own risk. :)

I had all the Nightmare Hall books at one time. I loved them as a teen. I found this one in a box of books this summer and read it again.

It began really slowly and then the end was loads of details shoved into a small space of time. Bad pacing but the story was good.

It's been awhile since I read this, but I do remember I enjoyed it very much, as I did everything else written by Diane Hoh.

It good for what it is. Though, I wish they were more books like these being published now.
