I believe I'm beginning to like these American Chillers. The author's style is rough around the edges and quasi-formed in a multitude of ways, but the plot of Ogres of Ohio is more cohesive and well-planned than the first book of the series, and the twists and turns of the action snap with superior energy. Residents of Ohio may never themselves have run across a monster-toothed, club-wielding ogre as seen on the book's front cover, but that doesn't mean they don't exist, as twelve-year-old Dani ...more

I read "Ogres of Ohio" by Johnathan Rand and I thought it was a wonderful book! I am totally looking forward to more Johnathan's books. This book had an amazing storyline and was very creative and just filled to the top with imagination. I really loved how there were lots and lots of cliff-hangers.
This book is about two siblings named Derek and Danielle who find a magical door to a whole new world full of magic.Both, Derek and Danielle meet wonderful gnomes that plead for them to help them save

Over Januaury i read Ogres Of Ohio by Johnathan Rand. I thought it was a lame book. I didn't like it very much just cause it was very interesting and the setting just seemed like it was kind of rediculous. I thought the setting was dumb because i didn't know exactly were it was if it was in another universe or on another planet or something and there were ogres and i just imagined it funny. The main conflict was that they went through a door and they ended up some where on a weird planet with we ...more
This wasn't his did not have anything scary at all.I enjoyed reading it and I cant wait to get the next one.
Aw. I used to love this book as a little kid! Not sure how good it is now, since it's been so long, but I really liked it at some point!

Not sure it's really a horror story though...didn't scare me at all.
Pretty scary and very good it is about ogres attacking Ohio and Danielle and her brother have to save the gnomes.
Jonathan Rand is probably my favorite childhood horror book author.
