‘Goosebumps: Vampire Breath’ RL Stine

Goosebumps: Vampire Breath

Best friends Freddy and Cara think they’re tough, so when they discover a hidden passage in the basement of Freddy’s house, they don’t waste time debating their next move. But the secret room reveals something unexpected – a coffin, and a mysterious bottle…

As with all the best horror stories, Mr Stine doesn’t allow his heroes to hang around, instead he establishes the characters and throws them into a scary situation. Or rather, a situation that could have been scary. Admittedly, I’m an adult, so maybe it takes a bit more than an ageing vampire who’s lost his gnashers to put the jitters up me, but I think Stine missed a trick with this one. Having said that, it’s an easy read and the neat twist at the end was unexpected, so it wouldn’t put me off reading other Goosebumps books.

    Nice review of this book, Colin. I personally don’t like Goosebumps but I know the kids do. My son, Greg, read them all when he was in pre-prep school.

      Yeah, must admit I thought they’d be better. Ho hum…
