Andy stood beside Kermit. Evan saw the blue container of Monster Blood in her hand. Just seeing the can made Evan shiver.

So many bad memories. So many nightmares.

The green gunk inside the can was so dangerous.

Ugh, this book was terrible. What did I expect? Monster Blood is one of Stine's weakest Goosebumps subsets. Andy and Evan are back! Evan is still getting the shit beat out of him. Andy and Evan are still exchanging barbs and are very close friends. Their friendship is one of the only things

Have I mentioned how much I love the Andy character? I don't know why I like the girls more in every book. Either RL is a good writer or I've been single waaay too long! The cover art is misleading, because Evan doesn't grow THAT much, but still grows big enough to make it a fun read. Kermit is his cousin a new character introduced into the 4 part series. If he were my cousin I'd lock him in the attic with all the spiders and rats. On a side note, I would never name m

The story is about a sticky, gooey, and slimy stuff that will continously grow and grow and will gobble up things whole. The characters in the story are a boy named Evan and girl named Andy. He has to take of his little cousin Kermit, and what he does is experiments when Evan messed with one of Kermit's experments it caused Evan's life because once the stuff grew and grew,and popped, but some of the stuff landed in his mouth casing him to grow. Now once people are starting to see him they think ...more
I like that the same characters are carried over and that an actual person is the one to ingest the monster blood this time around, but the climax is ridiculous. There's also no resolution in regards to Kermit.
I honestly wanted to slap Kermit for being a spoiled brat. Being smart does not give you permission to bully others.
Almost every child in the Goosebumps world is an asshole. They are complete psychopaths.

Evan and Andy are back again with the Monster Blood. This time, they wanna use it as revenge against Evan's cousin, .... Kermit. Poor kid! What a horrible name! Anyway, Kermit is a Science and Math geek and he's eight years old. He enjoys coming up with schemes to make it look like Evan, his babysitter, is being mean to him. His mother buys it all the time. The revenge plot doesn't quite work out as planned. Andy decides to sip some of the monster blood into one of Kermits' experiments and inste ...more
Evan, a boy, hates baby-sitting. He hates it when the person he baby-sits is his cousin,Kermit. Kermit is a smart kid. But even though he is a smart kid, he is not like the other kids. Kermit doesn't like to do anything. He doesn't like to play games. He even won't play frisbee. All Kermit ever do is stay in his basement doing experiments and always play jokes on Evan and his friend Andy. But one day, Andy finds something that he thinks that will teach Kermit a lesson. It was a can that was mark ...more
Currently rereading my original Goosebumps collection

After two of these books Evan and Andy still haven't learnt their lesson. I thought this book was terrible. There were so many inconsistentencies and plot holes. The major one being why on earth would they use the Monster Blood again? These Monster Blood books just get worse and worse.

Read from October 4, 2013 - October 4, 2013

I think this topic has been about killed with Mr.Stine however, I found that I liked seeing the usual characters back in action. I have to say though that brat in the book was what caught my attention. He was just so despisable. He was what really gave the book some flair.

Another good sequel, I'm waiting for the next one.
Another Monster Blood sequel. Great! I just don't like these. Despite how dangerous it is, Monster Blood just doesn't scare me. It's silly putty. The stories are basically more about bullying than anything else. This one is a little more fun. Evan's cousin Kermit is an even better villain than the Monster Blood. All of his crazy experiments and inventions are pretty funny. A story based on this would be much better than another story where Evan and Andy stupidly use Monster Blood.

Luckily, this
Monster Blood III is a about a boy named Evan and his weird cousin Kermet. Kermet is not into exercising or sports, all he does is run tests and stays in his basement Evan always babysittshim. Every time he babysitt's, Kermet has something up his sleeve, he's always playing jokes on Evan and Evan gets blamed for every single one of them. Evan has had enough, he's going to play a trick on Kermet and it's not pretty it includes something dangerous,slimey and green... monster blood!! The reason I l ...more

I guess that it's Evan's 3rd time having to encounter the slime again but this time it was used in spite. Using this mysterious liquid created many problems for Evan but even if it was for revenge? How far did he take this didn't matter as long as someone ingested this, they became super sized. Kermit, Evan's know it all cousin who thinks he's better than everyone has been giving him a hard time of blame. It's just like how the older sibling takes the blame for the younger. I can see why Evan wa ...more
This book left me wanting more! If only they made the next chapters of the story into this one. Now if I want to know what happens next, I must go buy volume 4! That or it had a very abrupt ending :/
I had never read any Goosebumps, and I thought they were supposed to be scary. So I didn't really want my son to read them either. However, I had a couple hours to kill and no book of my own. I saw this on a shelf, and decided to check it out.

I was able to read it in one sitting, which is probably normal for an adult. It was kind of fun and not at all scary, at least to me. Lots of fantasy, but it was all crammed in at the end. I liked the main character's friend Andy. I liked her because of her
Amanda Sheila
Nasty! But I liked it, though of course, it's not that scary. Another addition to my collection. :)

Evan plans sweet revenge but it goes the other way round and he becomes huge.

Greatest Goosebumps book...except for the ending.

Evan can't stand baby sitting his genius cousin Kermit. He refuses to play video games. He won't even play frisbee all he likes to do is hang out in the basement. Doing strange experiments and play mean practical jokes on Evan and his friend Andy but now Andy's found something that will teach Kermit a lesson once and for's green it's slimy. And it comes In a can marked monster blood! It's the slime that never dies
I was hooked on these series as a kid. I remember when this first book came out and all the hype surrounding it, and quickly joined in on scarfing these things down. They were fun at the time, although even in grade school they had me rolling my eyes at some of the goofiness (and the cliffhanger chapter endings! Every chapter, without fail!).
The addition of Evan's cousin Kermit into the story helps to keep things fresh. Some things are similar to how they are in the first book, while R.L. Stine makes alterations, as well, to avoid letting the Monster Blood idea get stale. This story was highly anticipated when it was first released to a Goosebumps-crazed public!
Goosebumps. This is the series that kept me reading through my childhood. More than any other series, Goosebumps kept me interested in reading, and R.L. Stein is a wonderful children's writer. I applaud his efforts, and can't express enough my gratitude for the series.

Evan goes to lunch the next day and talks about what happened yesterday to his cousin Andy. Andy had told her to put monster blood in his food, but Evan didn't want to do that so he yelled out loud no way and everyone heard him and it turned into a fiasco.
I rated every book that I read during childhood 5 stars.
Why? Well because that was a time in my life when I loved every single thing I read. And because they bring back fond memories. Ah, the joys of being young!
Matthew Lafrance
Seems to me to be a bit repetitive from Monster Blood I and II, but... still written well and not too too repetitive. Another one of those rare cases in Goosebumps where Stine writes in the third person.
Joseph Defreitas
I think this book is good because it's interesting and fun. I just started reading this book yesterday and i'm starting to like it already. I think that all people of all ages would like this book.
Enaknya baca Goosebumps nih, biarpun loncat2, tapi kita tetep bisa connect ama ceritanya.. cuma aku agak pengen tau ajah, Darah Monster ini asalnya darimana sih, kok khasiatnya sebegitu dahsyatnya..
The entire series is corny, silly, far from scary, and bordering on stupid. But it's ADDICTIVE. It's a genuinely amusing series. Good for kicking back and relaxing.
Benjamin Plume
Another Goosebumps book I'd forgotten I read. These things were quite the gateway to reading. If your kids are interested PLEASE let them read 'em.
