So, we have Abby, nice girl but total control freak! She likes being in control of her life, likes order. Getting straight A’s, being on the honor roll, etc. She doesn't have time for parties, her boyfriend, friends.. So, when attacks start happening on campus, she doesn't pay any attention to it.. But when the attacks start effecting her friends, she gets involved.. This book was a good one but I didn't love or hate it. Actually, there was one scene that pissed me off; (view spoiler) ...more

A monster is attacking students at Salem University. At first, it is believed to be just a rumour, or a fraternity prank. However, when Abby's friend is attacked, the group of friends realise how serious it is.

There's not much more to the story than that; the book's enjoyment is firmly placed on the idea that the reader is kept guessing at who/what the monster is. Unfortunately, I think I read this book twice when I was younger and I remember the twist.

Therefore, this time I found it rather dull
I liked MONSTER. It was creepy and cheesy and spine-tingly and it hit right for old school YA horror.

I just want to know who’s taking chemistry as a 100/200 level class if they don’t actually have to? Talk about torture. Another bid to my thinking that the Nightmare Hall books don’t really know whether to be high school or college. While I’m sure chemistry’s offered at college level no one would actually subject themselves to that unless it was required for a major or minor. Ick.

So a monster is

Knowing Diane Hoh's M.O., I already guessed the truth of what was happening after a few chapters. Still a good story.

This one is very different from the others. It was okay, not my favorite. But still a fun read.
