    It says on the book's home page that this was co written. Maybe the second name is the sketch artist instead of a co author. Nevertheless it doesn't feel like a Goosebumps classic. Too many uselessly emphasized short dramatic sentences that are where they shouldn't be. At one point I was curious of how the story would be stretched, but beyond that I had little desire to read. There are icky bits, but not ghoulish bits. This could have been written by anyone. Drew and Kelsey might have been inspi It says on the book's home page that this was co written.

There are icky bits, but not ghoulish bits. This could have been written by anyone. Drew and Kelsey might have been inspired from real kids, but they aren't real even on paper. I really missed the banter and playfulness from the first third of the story. Not all Goosebumps story must be alike but this one offers nothing much. One star.

    A nice story with mystery elements and a good moral (The true curse is nothing supernatural. It is the fear that we succumb to.) Recommendable for kool kids.

    My first LibraryThing review ever! Thanks, Adriane! I remember in elementary school when we had weekly trips to the library, we'd always look at the shelf that held all of R.L. Stine's classics. The Goosebumps series --gosh, they caused a ruckus! We little first graders would all be standing in a lopsided line, waiting for the librarian to check our books out for us, and while the long wait, we'd glance by the "horror" bookshelf. I don't think they were much too popular, so they were located on My first LibraryThing review ever! Thanks, Adriane! I remember in elementary school when we had weekly trips to the library, we'd always look at the shelf that held all of R.L. Stine's classics. The Goosebumps series --gosh, they caused a ruckus! We little first graders would all be standing in a lopsided line, waiting for the librarian to check our books out for us, and while the long wait, we'd glance by the "horror" bookshelf. I don't think they were much too popular, so they were located on a bottom shelf; however, at three-and-a-half feet standing, they were right at eye level for us. Perfect. "You know what the scariest thing ever is?" one boy taunted me. "Reading one of these books. They will haunt you forever." "So?" I said. The covers looked pretty scary, but being a book freak even then, I found it hard to believe that a book could actually scare you. "In the dark," he continued. "These books are scary if you read them in the dark." I was not impressed. First of all, everyone knew that you couldn't read a book in the dark unless it had glow-in-the-dark text. Second of all, the dark never really had adverse affects on me as a child, so to me, reading the book in the dark would have been the same as reading one on the sun. Nevertheless, the fact that the horror novels could supposedly haunt me forever was not a very appealing idea. I never picked up one of the books, and never had thought about it, until I was given the opportunity to review Eye of the Fortuneteller by R.L. Stine. It isn't Goosebumps, but it comes pretty darn close... Blurb: Who's afraid of the ghosts of Fear Street? Not Kelsey Moore. She's lived on Fear Street all her life, and she's not afraid of anything. Until she meets Madame Valda --a strange old woman who says she can see into the future. She tells Kelsey that only fools are fearless. Kelsey just laughs. But she isn't laughing when she climbs into bed -- and finds it full of disgusting sand crabs. Or when she goes for a swim --and finds the ocean swarming with giant jellyfish! All of Kelsey's worst fears are coming to life! Has Madame Valda doomed Kelsey to live in fear forever? The only plausible way this book can be considered a horror novel takes me back to first grade, when even all the boys were afraid to read R.L. Stine. The only plausible way this book would eternally terrify a person, is if they were six years old. The plot is simple: 1. Kelsey and her cousin, Drew encounter a creepy gypsy. 2. Kelsey and her cousin, Drew anger the creepy gypsy. 3. Kelsey and her cousin, Drew are cursed by the creepy gypsy; they get lost and chased by a rabid dog. 4. Kelsey has hallucinations about the only things in the world she is afraid of: sand crabs. 5. Kelsey has hallucinations about the only OTHER things in the world she is afraid of: horseflies and jellyfish. That's really the "scary" element of the story; but for someone like me who cannot imagine a sand crab being scary, it was hard to associate. Being a children's novel, it did end happily (Kelsey's curse is lifted by some gypsies who aren't quite as evil as the first one she encountered), but I totally saw it coming. Children's stories never end tragically, but that factor probably also made the story less horrific too. Eye of the Fortuneteller was a quick, I-should-be-doing-something-productive-but-instead-I-am-entertaining-myself read. I read it in about twenty minutes, as the there are only 105 pages and the font size is about 16. I enjoyed taking a break from the really dramatic genre that makes you think too much (we're studying Dickens in class right now...ugh), but having already graduated from elementary school, this book wasn't really for me. Radical Rating: 6 hearts- Would recommend to people. ♥♥♥♥♥♥

    I'm skimming through random R L Stine books, mostly for the plot elements. I've always been more of an Animorphs kid. I'm skimming through random R L Stine books, mostly for the plot elements. I've always been more of an Animorphs kid.

    This was the first book my grandmother handed me as a child and was essentially my gateway to the joy of reading. So, truthfully, I might be biased on my rating.

But u know it was good the way it it !! I really didn’t understand why the ending happened like that coz that was just crazy !! But throughout he book was a great read !! U should go read It !!

    Kind of like an elementary school take on Drag Me to Hell, with the cure of the Gypsy curse echoing a bad episode of Fear Factor ("YOU HAVE TO EAT A JELLYFISH!!"). Pretty middle-of-the-road Stine. Kind of like an elementary school take on Drag Me to Hell, with the cure of the Gypsy curse echoing a bad episode of Fear Factor ("YOU HAVE TO EAT A JELLYFISH!!").

    What the hell was that? Granted, they can't all be winners, but the increasingly nonsensical plot to this one seemed to run in circles and go nowhere. There wasn't even an eye... did he hand the title off to a ghostwriter and say "just go with it?" What the hell was that?

    You can't convince me that the woman on the cover isn't Teresa Giudice, lol. But this book was pretty creepy. A quick, short read. You can't convince me that the woman on the cover isn't Teresa Giudice, lol. But this book was pretty creepy. A quick, short read.

    One of my favorites. I used to bring this book with me to school so I could read it on the ride home. Kelsey's bull-headedness lands her in trouble with Madame Valda. She has a curse put on her and consults gypsies to have it removed. She nearly loses her life acquiring insects and a jellyfish, which she eats, only to discover that she was still doomed. What a fun read this was. One of my favorites. I used to bring this book with me to school so I could read it on the ride home. Kelsey's bull-headedness lands her in trouble with Madame Valda.

    Ir doesn't make much sense but the wild antics made it a fun enough read. The concept is enough to carry it but it could have taken more advtange of the premise. Also, way too many uses of the G slur. Ir doesn't make much sense but the wild antics made it a fun enough read.
