    I read this book with my daughter before bed each night and we looked forward to it each time. It was kind of our special time and that may be why I rated it a little higher than I normally would. The story was a little lacking in suspense and those twists I come to expect from Stine, though the ending was pretty good. It was titled Frankenstein's dog, and the dog didn't really play much of a part until the end. It was mostly about robots, which can be cool sometimes, but didn't seem very unique I read this book with my daughter before bed each night and we looked forward to it each time.

I am a big Goosebumps fan. I read the original series up to about number 42 or so, and enjoyed the television series. This one just didn't have the same feel as those ones did. My daughter thought it was just okay too, though there were nights where she would want me to read the next chapter cause she was so into it and didn't want to end.

    I really enjoyed reading this Goosebumps Most Wanted book! Perhaps it is the literary inspiration behind the plot, or just the super cool elements that Stine infuses into the story... but it's a fun read! Herein we find a modern day Victor Frankenstein who doesn't create monster creatures (even though the angry villagers believe that he's up to the same tricks that his ancestor was)... No, not at all! He's a knowledgeable computer scientist who is into AI technology... He builds robots! Totally d I really enjoyed reading this Goosebumps Most Wanted book!

    Most Goosebumps books feature a villain of R.L. Stine's own creation, but Frankenstein's Dog is a bit different, and I like that. When twelve-year-old Kat Parker is sent by herself to a faraway country to visit her Uncle Victor Frankenstein (great-grandson of the notorious doctor who brought Frankenstein's monster to life), she has some idea that the vacation won't be a normal one. She's enjoyed spending time with her scientist uncle whenever he's visited her family, but Kat is a little spooked Most Goosebumps books feature a villain of R.L. Stine's own creation, but Frankenstein's Dog is a bit different, and I like that. When twelve-year-old Kat Parker is sent by herself to a faraway country to visit her Uncle Victor Frankenstein (great-grandson of the notorious doctor who brought Frankenstein's monster to life), she has some idea that the vacation won't be a normal one. She's enjoyed spending time with her scientist uncle whenever he's visited her family, but Kat is a little spooked by the idea of staying alone with him in a castle-like manor built several hundred years ago. The villagers are on edge and don't exactly greet Kat with warmth and cordiality, but Uncle Victor tells her not to worry. The people may still hold his great-grandfather's reanimation experimentations against him, but Kat is perfectly safe as long as she doesn't wander far from the house. Like the original Doctor Frankenstein, Uncle Victor is interested in animating lifeless matter, but his expertise is artificial intelligence, particularly advanced robotics. Victor has invented state-of-the art robot assistants to help him in the laboratory, robots that look, sound, and feel exactly like humans. Kat wouldn't even know that Victor's main assistant, a robot named Frank made up to look like a young man, isn't human if Victor hadn't told her. But cutting-edge artificial intelligence can be difficult to keep from getting out of hand, and as Kat explores her uncle's mansion with a local boy her age named Robby, she finds things that cause her to worry that Victor may not be as in control of his experiments as he wants her to believe. Could his robots be on the brink of breaking free from their creator's control and terrorizing the village as Frankenstein's monster did three generations ago? With robots all around that are nearly indistinguishable from people, it becomes challenging for Kat to discern who is human and who is merely masquerading as such. Will she ever figure out who's who in Doctor Frankenstein's modern house of horrors? Frankenstein's Dog is a good concept, though I wonder why it was given that title. I'd give the book one and a half stars, and if the ending were more clear and concise, I probably would have rounded up to two. I like that R.L. Stine continued innovating after so many years writing for kids, creating new books to please young readers who prefer their stories with some zest. Like most Goosebumps novels, Frankenstein's Dog has that zest, and I had fun with it. Nothing hits the spot for juvenile horror literature like a Goosebumps book.

    My boys liked the suspense, and I did as well. However, Kat is an idiot and entirely too naive.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This book is just full of robots, I don't appreciate the plot. It was only interesting in the middle part when they go around exploring the mansion. This book is just full of robots, I don't appreciate the plot.

    In this book the main character is Kat. She doesn't want to go to visit her uncle, Vic Frankestein's house because of the rumors about him. The rumors are that he is a bad person, and is like Frankenstein. He lives in a big dark mansion. Vic is really a nice man who likes to build things like roborts. He has a small white dog. Vic does things to the dog in his lab and the dog turns mean and does bad things. In this book the main character is Kat.

    I found this book a lot cuter than my first choice. Kat is off to visit her Uncle who is a descendant of the original Victor Frankenstein. When Kat arrives, she learns that her uncle is creating robots with artificial intelligence. She starts exploring his old home and soon finds some things that don't make sense. Victor's dog Poochie immediately warms to Kat and really plays a few key roles in the entire plot.

Will Kat be able to find out what is going on or will she become one of her uncle's experiments herself? I liked Kat. She was curious and rambunctious and she clearly loved her uncle a lot. And as I mentioned, I also liked Poochie. The book made me chuckle in places and I could actually see it play out well as a kid's animated film. And the ending to this one actually made sense. Overall, I'm glad I ventured into the world of Goosebumps and while I now see that I really missed these books due to older than the targeted audience when they released, they might be fun to visit from time to time.

Stine put a lot of mystery into the book and trying to make it like real horror.If you read on there will be a spoiler!!!!(spoiler alert)At the begging of the story everything was calm for Kats (fake)uncle.But she doesn't know that the uncle she is with right know is FAKE!!!!!At the end Kat is starting to relize that her uncle is doing strange things to her like take her brain waves and putting it in a robot.Now there was a big mistake Kat was Wow!!!!!What an amazing book this is.The author R.L.

    I though the book was amazing because it all ways each chapter ends with a cliff hanger and each chapter has a big mystery about something in the book.I love R.L book's because his book's have a part of it when it keeps you on the edge of your seat.Over all I love R.L books and i think you should read it to.

    Review for “Frankenstein’s Dog” by R. L. Stine: It’s the forth book from the “Goosebumps Most Wanted” series written by the bestseller author, R. L. Stine. The story focuses on a girl named Kat who visits her uncle Victor. She likes to explore his mansion and play with his dog Poochie. She also befriends a boy named Robbie. At first, she doesn’t believe in the rumors and sees her relative as a gentle man with a weird sense of humor and passion for robotics. Weird things started to happen after an Review for “Frankenstein’s Dog” by R. L. Stine: It’s the forth book from the “Goosebumps Most Wanted” series written by the bestseller author, R. L. Stine. The story focuses on a girl named Kat who visits her uncle Victor. She likes to explore his mansion and play with his dog Poochie. She also befriends a boy named Robbie. At first, she doesn’t believe in the rumors and sees her relative as a gentle man with a weird sense of humor and passion for robotics. Weird things started to happen after an accident in the lab. Will Kat be able to find the truth? The book is similar to Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” with a pinch of humor and suspense which awakens the reader’s curiosity. Mr. Stine attracts his readers through his writing style which is simple and easy to understand. The readers will feel like they’re in the main character’s skin and the novel itself will put their imagination to work, making them decide the ending as it happens in all the author’s books. There are some references to mythology, fairy tales and sci-fi movies. Kat is similar to Pandora, the character from Greek Mythology whose curiosity made her open the box Zeus had given her as a wedding gift despite the god’s warning to not open it. Just like Pandora unleashed the evil upon men’s world, Kat unleashed her uncle’s monsters despite the relative’s warnings. It’s both Robbie’s and her curiosity that get them in trouble. The scenes with the door of the room where Victor keeps his failures is similar to the one in the fairy tale “The Diligent Girl and the Lazy Girl” in which the girls are asked by the fairies to sweep six rooms and never open the door of the seventh room. In R. L. Stine’s novel, the children explore the lab forgetting the bad experiences they had before. Uncle Victor’s robots can be associated with the ones from the “Terminator” movie series in which man’s creation turn against their creator. As they read further on, the readers will enjoy the wonderful mix of mild horror, comedy and science fiction. Along with Chris Grabenstein, James Patterson, Beatrice Masini, Sir Steve Stevenson, J. K. Rowling, Sophie Audouin-Mamikonian, Mr. Stine is the author who will forever be in his readers’ hearts and who revolutionized literature through his unique style and the world which he created. The Stephen King of Children’s Literature and the Master of Goosebumps are the perfect names for the author. I recommend this book to readers 12+.

    I received this book as a free book through Kellogg's promotion. I knew that any book I get from these promotions is bound to not be very good, but I like to read anything and everything. I had read some of the complaints that the title and cover are incredibly misleading, and it is very true. I wonder why they made that choice and how much Stine had to do with it? I didn't grow up reading Goosebumps, so I have no idea how this compares to the classics. I think I've read one other, which was about I received this book as a free book through Kellogg's promotion.

I'm sure there are better kids' books out there, but what can I say? I find it hard to turn down a free book. This book is labeled as for 4th through 6th graders. It's been a long time since I've read a book targeted at this age group, so I'm not sure how appropriate it is, but the text seemed strangely large.

I was hoping for a tacky spin off of the real Frankestien, where the dog was the main antagonist. The story was going very good but suddenly it took a very dull turn. Nevertheless, it was a light and casual read which opened up many gates of nostalgia in my heart. 2.5/5 stars. Will not recommend buying it if the cover looks promising to you too.

    Although I enjoyed the book, I thought it was a bit misleading. The cover shows a dog who looks like it had a surgery to put it back together. This made me think that the storyline would be about a dog that was brought back to life, like Frankenstein! But it was just a dog that licked up some type of potion, and grew big. The dog did not cause any harm though. And it certainly WAS alive. This would've been five stars if it weren't so misleading. Although I enjoyed the book, I thought it was a bit misleading.

    This book was interestingly titled, considering the dog wasn't really the main focus of the story. I liked the story, none the less. Like R.L. Stine's other Goosebumps stories, there was more than one twist. This book was interestingly titled, considering the dog wasn't really the main focus of the story. I liked the story, none the less.

    Personally I don't think it was as good as the original goosebumps books such as welcome to dead house and others but it's still worth a read and creeped me out a lot SPOILERS I would totally be freaked out if an army of robots that look like my uncle tried to make a robot version of me.

    Frankenstein's Dog has a perfect amount of action, suspense, and plot twists. The more the story continues, the more things Kat starts questioning everything. This book is just incredible in so many ways. Frankenstein's Dog has a perfect amount of action, suspense, and plot twists.
