I love R.L. Stine. I bought this book because the cover looks like Luxo Jr and I. Unfortunately, the twist is present from before even opening said cover. Was it always like that and we just grew up or was this one particularly obvious? Either way it was fun and took like an hour to read. Love me some Fear Street.

I just finished Cat and it was one of those Fear Street books that wasn't awful and also wasn't amazing. While the plot was somewhat original and the mystery (for the most part) was intriguing, nothing else really stood out very much. The characters were wooden, the ending was cliche, most of the scenes that were supposed to be suspenseful fell a little flat, and I was unfortunately able to uncover the killer's identity just a few pages before the reveal. I'd have to categorize this as another " ...more
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! :)
Pretty creepy. I loved it. It so can lead up to a part 2.
This kind of end I didn't expect. Amazingly written story. 5/5

I don't know if cat lovers will be a fan of this book or not, but I liked it. It makes you think about animal cruelty and the punishment for it, which was something I didn't expect from an R.L. Stine book. I was also engrossed with the fact that the main character Marty gets completely railroaded over the accidental death of the cat. The ending was really morally interesting because the reader has to ask themself, "Does Marty deserve this?". It doesn't help that Marty is kind of a jerk to girls.

I got this back when I was a kid as a birthday present because I loved cats so much, and this book certainly didn't disappoint me. I was never a huge RL Stine fan, I did like him and read some of his books but I never collected them or anything like that. This is a really fun book, especially if you like cats, and was good for a young adult-rated book. I think I still have it somewhere :P

I love going through these old R.L. Stine books. I am still shocked by how poorly written they are. The plots are actually pretty good but the writing seems like the writer just wanted to get through the outline as quickly as possible. Its very formulaic, but I appreciate the thought that went into the outline, if not into the actual story. Character development, what is that?
Aku suka sih novel ini. Ceritanya seru antara manusia dan kucing. Tapi ada nilai minusnya. Katanya kucing itu suka sama Marty tapi koq dia malah bikin Marty celaka pas latihan basket, jadi agak ganjal aja dibagian itu.

Noted, kalau membunuh kucing sengaja/tidak, pastikan dia mati 9 kali, supaya tidak bangkit lagi setelah kematian pertama... >,

My least favorite R.L. Stine book it was just so jumbled and well stupid. I didn't like it one bit.
Even though I'm not huge fan of Stine, I can still say this is one of his wosrt book ever.
I've read most of R.L. Stine's books and after a while they start to get boring.
