The ending was sooo creepy...
This book is your typical Fear book. So why am I giving it one star instead of the usual two or three? I mean, the story itself is sound and beside the horrible ending of "evil wins, good loses", what's wrong with it? Um....how about the fact that IT'S NOT CANNON??????? In The Burning, Daniel and Nora are married and go straight to tell Simon Fear. Unless they're consummating their marraige on a horse or in a carraige, this book couldn't have happened because Nicholas could never have existed. W...more
I really liked this series. It seemed like it was geared toward an older audience and readers got more history of the Fears and I love stuff like that. I'm 22 and I might even read this series again someday. Some of Stine's best.
This is not the first one in the Fear Street Sagas. This is the first one in the Series of Fear Street Sagas. To be read after you read the trilogy.
a new tragedy begins.

Have you ever wondered how R.L. Stine's Fear Street series began? How the "Street" became "Fear Street"? The Fear Street Sagas gives a glimpse into the history of the Fear family and Fear Street of Shadyside. A family feud between the Fears and the Goodes, have created a long history of fear, hate, mystery and wonder. Nora Goode and Daniel Fear had hoped to put their families' feud to an end through their marriage. Unfortunately, the night of their marriage announcement a fire rages through Fear...more

How do you even start reading those books? I mean i found a few that can be read in Goodreads, but this cant be read online.... :(
It's been since 1995 the last time I read anything by R.L. Stine and I figured I'd give him a read again to bring back some memories of my childhood horror days. I must say I was surprised at how good this story was, as it takes place in 1900 and gives way to what becomes the street called "Fear Street" so I thought that was neat to read about. I knew it would be a quick read and I almost couldn't put it down because of that. It's very straight forward and has a pretty good ending. Although I fe...more

R.L Stine is an amazing author who creates a whole new world for readers. His story is written with multiple techniques to allow the reader to imagine and feel at the same time. His stories are also creative. In this book two girl switches bodies. However, one gets married to Mr.Fear, a man who is considered curse because of his last name. After the protagonist is married to him awful things start to happen. This story has a tragic ending that will shock the reader.

Buku ini (kurang lebih) bercerita awal keburukan dan malapetaka yang terjadi di fear street, rumah tua yang menjadi titik utama kutukan yang terus menerus menjadi teror di lingkungan ini.
gak terlalu bagus sih, hanya saja sebagai teman perjalanan jauh boleh juga.
this book is all about curses of the Fear Family. This girl and her friend switch places and the girl marries Mr. Fear suddenly these crazy things start to happen after her husband died after an accidental death. extremly good book for R.L.Stine.
I read these ages ago, found them in our library and decided to re-read the whole saga collection. I still enjoy them! I didn't remember it being quite as graphic as it was but it makes the book!
I read this book while in middle school. I was a HUGE R.L. Stine fan and like most of his other books, especially the Fear Street Sagas, I couldn't put it down.
I was a huge R.L. Stine fan in my early teens! I loved all the fear street books! They are what got me into reading again! :)
One of my favorite series growing up. It's always fun to revisit the books that helped make us bibliophiles!
read this in maybe 5th grade..summer days spent inside reading THIS book instead of playing outside..its that good.
The Fear Street Saga ones were some of the best. I loved the back story given. Great books!
This one managed to scare me sh!tless for a month when I was twelve.

Richard Blanchard
I was shocked from the first chapter! And beyond

One of my childhood favorites.
