I stared up into his hideous face - and gasped.

His eyes were deep, dark pools - with tiny worms swimming in them!


Ew, nasty.

Okay, this is a little different from regular Goosebumps books - the monster shows up early, about 55% of the way through the novel.

Gretchen and her stepbrother Clark (I think this is the second Goosebumps books where there are divorced parents), are being unceremoniously dropped off at their grandma and grandpa's house in Georgia.

They are shocked to find that their grand

I loved this book! I've read it about a year or two ago, and just LOVED it! It's such a creepy, scary and thrilling story that I've read it in two days (and yeah, that's fast for me! ).

In don't want to spoil anything, but there's a huge and totally unexpected twist in the middle of the book, and you think; OMG, how will those two ever survive this? xD - You really want them to succeed, but they don't! You feel the struggle and them being so afraid, and just have no clue what to do... And that's

If I didn't have to review books for my website I'd just skip straight to the final 10 chapters.

The title of the book is boring which made the development of the plot drag on and on and on. The title doesn't start to make since until around page 82. Two children are left alone in a house with a monster....talk about child neglect sheesh. Anyways I'm glad the book only has 112 pages. Any more pages and I would have thrown myself out the window. A real borefest, not one of R.L.'s best work. I'd su

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 book, along with "Welcome To Dead House", is my favorite book in the Goosebump series. I absolutely loved it. I remember when I first read it it was amazing. The only thing I didn't like was the grandparents. Who in their right mind would lock their grandkids in a house with a monster? Now, that part, in my opinion, is ridiculous. Nonetheless, this book was great. It was fun to read.

Currently rereading my original Goosebumps collection

There's quite a difference between a fun, silly story for kids and just lazy writing. This book falls into the latter category. First of all, these have to be the worst grandparents in history. Who in their right mind would lock their grandchildren up in the house with a monster? And don't even get me started on how they end up "killing" the monster. I really hope this book wasn't written by Stine.

Read from June 24, 2014 - June 24, 2014

It has been years since I read this particular book. That being said, I can still recall so much of this book and it has carried with me over the years. I remember curling up under my blankets with a flashlight reading and rereading this book over the summer when I was free to sleep in late. Something about this book fascinated me and prevented me from putting it down. I was the child with a nose constantly between the pages of a well worn book and this book was most often the one I was lost in.

In this fiction horror thriller. Gretchen and Clark are staying with their grandparents, and they're not alone. When, Gretchen and Clark were told by their parents that they had to stay with their grandparents for three weeks. The children said they did not want to go to swamp land. The children said, good bye to their parents and went into the house. The first day that they were there the grandparents locked the doors and left them in the house

I read the first books of the Goosebumps when I was very little and I realy enjoyed but sadly not all books of Goosebumps were published or weren't found in my area so I only read a few. As I found more of those in the past few days I decided to at least try to finish the series evev if they are to childish for me. It is a very good way to make children starting to read. The stories are enjoyable and ti is a very easy reading. Definitely one of those books parents should buy to their kids.

READ BUT BEWARE YOU CHOOSE A SCARE!!! Monster Blood is a great story about a boy and a girl. They go to their grandparents house which is in the swamp. They find out their grandparents have a secret room and when their grandparents are gone they sneak into the room. They find out that there is a monster in that secret room and later on in the story the monster attacks them. If you want to find out what happens to them then read the book. Will they get out you find out.

This is the first goosebumps I ever read. I found a copy of it in an abandoned apartment when I was 10 and I still have it. The pages are worn and the cover is now missing but is still my favorite of them all.

This was our first R.L. Stine book and it was so much fun!
Kaeley already picked out the one she is going to get from the library next week. Already looking forward to it.

IT FELT REALLY GOOD TO SLOW DOWN AND READ BELOW READING LEVEL BOOK LIKE THIS ONE. THIS BOOK IS OKAY IF YOU WANT TO TAKE A BREAK FROM HARDCORE BOOKS. THIS BOOK IS ABOUT TWO CHILDREN NAMED GRETCHEN AND CLARK AND THEY SPOILER ALERT;THEY GO TO THEIR GRANDPARENTS HOUSE AND END UP HAVING TO KILL A MONSTER.THE PROBLEM IS THEY HAVE A HARD TIME DOING SO.



I THINK THIS IS A BOOK FOR PEOPLE WHO LIKE A LITTLE SUSPENSE , NOT A WHOLE LOT OF SUSPENSE.THIS IS AN OKAY BOOK BY MY STANDARDS I REALLY NEEDED A BREAK

Who wouldn't be afraid of living alone with just a sibling in a home with a vicious monster on the loose. Gretchen and Clark are staying at their grandparent's home while their parents are on a business trip. It was normal and boring until they find a locked room that's been causing a lot of noise. In that room, was a monster. What would they do? Were they any more?

How were Gretchen's and Clark's grandparents able to live through such terror knowing that there was a beast in their home? I would

Read this a while ago, it's not too shabby.

This book was terrible among heights. The worst of all the Goosebumps, I keep dubbing it. The humor was slaughtered, the horror was cheesy, the drama was abominable, and I kept seething to myself more and more as I turned the pages. Luckily I finished this in one day so I could completely believe that Goosebumps books CAN BE THIS BAD. This might be even the Fourth Musketeer of Failure on my list! Like, CHICKEN CHICKEN bad. If you've read that book, you'd know that it's HORRIBLY bad. But that's a ...more

Gila!
