Like all the other Fear Street Sagas books, this one takes place in the mid-1800s. This book is supposed to be for pre-teens or teens, but it is SO GORY. The ghostwriter (Eric Weiner) held nothing back. I think he was imagining all his enemies perishing with every death he wrote about.

The book opens with Jake Fear's journal. We learn that he was set to marry the woman of his dreams, but she ended up leaving him for another man and then slowly poisoning him until he died. Jake is an unoriginal gh

This was my first time reading this one! It was really cool to have no idea where the story was going or what to expect, because even when I only vaguely remember a Fear Street book it usually all comes back to me while reading it.

This one was actually legitimately good, and definitely got me in the Halloween spirit! The only thing I don't understand is why this is called "Door of Death", but I guess they were running out of ominous-sounding names by this point in the Saga series.

I think I liked the Fear Saga more than just plain old fear street the series just had more to it for me .... I really loved all the twisted tales from this series so much fun

I had an absolute blast reading all of these again in 2013 .... :)

I sort of spaced most of the book out because I was focusing on something else, but it was still pretty fun to read. A real thriller. Not stretched out over months or weeks, but one night. Supernatural to boot; visions, ghosts, revenge. I wish there had been a bit more about Jack Fear since I really enjoyed his story, but I still liked it. A classic ghost revenge story.

Again proof that some ghosts lose all sense of what's right and wrong. The people the ghost killed did nothing as horrible as the people who cheated him. ...more
