1984. It signaled the debut of the Apple Macintosh, the Winter Olympics took place in Sarajevo, the novel '1984' was probably read by more people than in any other single year, 'Of Mice and Men' was removed from Tennessee public schools for being a "filthy book", and I was ten years old and reading 'Horror of High Ridge' which was officially book number 27 of the 'Choose Your Own Adventure' series.

My first of the "choose your own adventure" series. A pretty odd experience. The generic set-up is overly familiar and the writing is pretty bad and packed with cliches; attempts at atmosphere building are cringe-worthy, to say the least. I guess it works if you're a kid though.

The most unsatisfying thing is that, when playing, we ended up on a cliffhanger and then got 'THE END'. No resolution, no death, no solving of the mystery, nothing. It's a huge cheat. I skimmed through the rest of the pag

Pretty badly written but fine for some light entertainment. Took me all of 5 minutes to finish the first route (the correct one it would seem) and then a half an hour or so to exhaust all the other options.

I have fond memories of my childhood being addicted to choose your own adventure books, I was always found with my nose in a book. Loved shopping around old bookshops and second hand stalls for them. I Still haven't completed my collection and am always looking out for the odd missing volume, as they are now quite rare, the original editions anyhow.

I strongly remember Horror of high ridge as quite a scary and creepy book, for a child.

The plot revolves around a town (High Ridge) that is built on

I loved the Choose Your Own Adventure books, and constantly borrowed them from the library. I owned a few, too, and would mark little pencilled notations on all the endings I managed to reach in my own copies (I'd tuck aside a piece of paper for the ones from the library). When I was nine and ten, these books got re-read so many times it was unreal, and they paved the way to me wanting to write, too, as sometimes I got annoyed at an obvious, missing option.

I suspect my adult self would not like the cultural stereotypes implied on the cover of this book I owned as a kid . . . but I wore out the cover reading and swapping with my friends.

A "sequel" to HOUSE OF DANGER, written by a completely different author! Still, this one has stayed with me to this day.
