♥The Interview ♥

  1. What drew you to this book?
♥ The title, also I’ve read other books by R.L Stine that I really enjoyed.

Q. What do you enjoy most about the horror genre?

♥The thrill I get from reading. I love suspense.

Q. Based on other books you’ve read by R.L Stine would you say this is one of your favourites? If not, what’s your favourite and why?

♥Honestly, I would have to say this is not one of his better books. Although I did like it, it wasn’t as good as some others I’ve read. My favourite would have to be Twisted because there was a ton of suspense.

Q. Favourite part of this novel?

♥ When the characters went roller skating.

Q. Favourite character?

♥ I like Hillary a lot because of her spunk.

Q. If you could say anything to the author what would it be?

♥ I would suggest a bigger thrill content. Although it did have moments of suspense, it didn’t have all I had hoped for.

Q. What did you feel was the best done?

♥ I felt that the setting was easy to visualize. When I closed my eyes I could really see Shadyside.

Q. Who would you recommend this book for?

♥ Firstly, I would like to mention that I got this book from the Young Adult section at my library,       so I would have to say that this book is meant for an older group. Secondly, personally I think if you like the horror aspect of books this is a pretty decent first read if you don’t’ want to jump in all the way.

      ♥Pg. 25

“’Why?’ Hillary demanded. ‘Why’d they suspend him?’
       Vincent grinned at us. ‘Al rolled up his English term paper and smoked it in front of Mrs. Hirsch.’”


♥Pg. 52

“’Didn’t you used to baby-sit for those twins?’ Hillary asked as I skated up beside her.
        I nodded. ‘I just fell on one of them,’ I told her. ‘But not hard enough!’”


Thanks so much for reading,


Sidny xoxo
