A pretty good horror for younger readers, not much of a mystery

Used to love them as a teen but this one was one of the weaker ones.

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 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 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! :)

Clearly not Fear Street at its best. I’m getting a feeling that Stine doesn’t like cats. I love cats so much that this one was a bit difficult to get through. I always loved the cover, but a good cover does not a good book make (duh).

Basically, Marty is the typical teen asshole that always frequent Fear Street novels. He thinks he’s a hot shit basketball player. He also doesn’t care that he’s hurt a girl named Riki. He has two best friends: Dwayne and Barry.

The boys always have basketball prac

I really got a kick out of this one ... lmao I am so a cat person

in 2013 my local library was getting ride of all paperback books and they had all the R.L. Stine / Christopher Pike books so I bought all of them and read them with a massive teen book marathon .. I really hope that a whole new generation of teens gets to fall in love with these books !!! as they are simply the best I loved all of these books in my teens .. :) and I really enjoyed going down memory lane re reading them as an adult

Ini Fear Street pertama yang saya baca dengan tokoh protagonis Laki-laki,
semua yang pernah saya baca tokoh utamanya perempuan.
Cerita dan alurnya menurut saya pribadi kadang baik kadang saya
kurang terlalu menyukainya.mungkin karena saya termasuk penyuka kucing.

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
