Classic Goosebumps #17: You Can't Scare Me! (Goosebumps #15)
Eddie and his friends: Hat, Molly, and Charlene - decide to scare Courtney. Why?
She's really asking for it,...
*shivers Some of the scariest words in the English language. But I've got to shake it off and realize it's Stine and 12-year-old kids we're talking about here.
Anyway, it seems to personally annoy the kids, especially Eddie, that Courtney is so fearless and brave when he's such a scaredy-cat.
For example, when a green snake scares Eddie, Courtney comes along an ...more
You Can't Scare Me! is the fifteenth book in the Goosebumps series. You Can't Scare Me! is a lesser known and loved Goosebumps book as well as TV episode. I can't remember ever seeing the TV episode so I'm not sure if I enjoyed it. You Can't Scare Me! is a book all about scaring people, but lacks actual scariness.
My problem with You Can't Scare Me! lies with both the plot and the characters. Mainly the characters since the plot relies on them, I blame the...more
Courtney picked it up and was holding it. She teased Eddie, and it happened again with some bees. She three them at Eddie and his friend, Hat. Hat and Eddie freaked out, which is normal if bees come at you. Courtney made fun of them and besides Molly and Charlene ...more
I remember being VERY scared of this one—but honestly I think the thing that scared me most was the cover. I also saw the TV episode, but it wasn’t nearly ...more
I rated this book 4 stars because it is just a really good book for me and other people who likes to read scary stuff and watch scary things as well.
My favorite character in the book is Courtney because she likes to show-off and she thinks that she is better then everybody and braver then everybody.
Another character that I like is Eddie because since Courtney likes to be a show-off and thin ...more
This was a fun one, but it's not one that I have an extreme nostalgic connection to, because I'm not 100% sure I read this one as a kid. I probably did, but it didn't make much of an impact on me. It is a fun one, though; it's early Goosebumps, which means it's probably about a million times better than later Goosebumps, and also, to steal something from Blogger Beware, BEE THROWING BEE THROWING BEE THROWING
Eddie and his friends hate Courtney because she's always showing off and making their lives miserable. How does she do this? She does her school work. She isn't afraid of a green snake, or bumble bees, or spiders for that matter. She likes dogs. She shares her lunch. She saves a cat from a tree. And we're supposed to think she's a horrible person?
Let's take a look at some of the things Eddie and his fri ...more
Plot Synopsis: Eddie hates Courtney. She's just so perfect and so brave. Nothing seems to scare her at all, and it drives Eddie crazy. So he decides to pull the perfect prank to scare C ...more
However, the book lives up to its name. It isn't scary. It is the least scray book so far. The plot is that there is this perfect girl who all the ...more
Most of the time is spent focusing on how much of a know-it-all show-off Courtney is and how whiny and afraid of everything Eddie is. Granted, while I appreciate that kind of scene-setting there wasn’t a whole lot of it around the concept of these mud monsters. The woods that they supposedly inhabit aren’t even mentioned until maybe two-thirds ...more
"Не можеш ме уплаши" е слаба история. Може да съм гледала епизода, а може и да не съм - но във всеки случай той не е оставил никакъв отпечатък върху мен. 80% от историята се състои в несполучливите и не особено оригинални опити на група деца да сплашат нахаканата си съученичка. Чак към края започва да навлиза свръхестествения елемент. Легендата за Калните чудовища е всъщност и ...more
PLOT Friends Eddie, Hat, Charlene, and Hat just can't seem to scare the fearless Courtney. Snakes won't do it (real and rubber), Bee's won't do it. Tarantula's won't do it. Big snarling fluffy dogs covered in mud and whip crème won't don't do it. But there *is* one thing that might get her attention. You see Courtney is a believer of monsters and it just so happens there's a story going around about a famous Monster that lurks underneath the bridge known as "The Mud M ...more
Anyway, the plot.
Like most Goosebump books this one features an utterly despicable kid. In this case, it's the protagonist. Upset at how he's u ...more
