Read full description of the books Curtains:This I read just for the hell of it. I guess that could be said about anything I read, but in this case, I knew what I was getting into because I'd read a number of these R. L. Stine "YA horror" books when I was ten, twelve years old, and I thought I'd pick one up purely for nostalgiac value.
The writing is remarkably simple, the chapters often end in cliched cliffhangers, there's almost no violence to speak of, and... I don't know. There isn't much else to say. I can certainly see why these books appealed to kids in the 90s (I don't think they're very popular anymore, but then, I've been outta the scene for a while, so I may not know), but it seems to me that "genre" books intended for a younger audience have gotten better in recent years.
Bob Stine must have churned these things out every couple of days back then (and I know for certain that at least a few of his books were ghost written--thank you, Interview With Tom Perotta), and I think he's probably done a lot towards getting kids to read, and to read genre fiction, but there are certainly better quality books out there that are geared towards younger readers.
