I'm probably in the minority, because I read only one Goosebumps book ever. It was a class read in elementary school - #26 My Hairiest Adventure. I wrote in-depth about that particular book in another thread, but I would like to emphasize it was the implications about what the adults were doing (some very ethically questionable experiments) that got to me. I was still fairly sheltered at the time and used to reading older books or classics so the idea that the events of this modern book were set in place just like where my classmates lived? I was creeped out at the implications of what parents could or would do afterwards.

It does mean he is more skilled than other people might believe. So kudos to Mr. Stine.

I used to love the Goosebumps books whilst I was at school! I believe there was also a Goosebumps TV show in the UK a few years ago, but I didn't watch it regularly.
Also, R.L. Stine also wrote some books in the Point Horror series which is for older readers which were really good, definitely would recommend them
I go to seek a Great Perhaps
