Demian's Thoughts:

This book has some fairly good moments, but it also has some bad ones. While it's a more entertaining read than most books in the series, many of the choices in it are pointless or change the plot in seemingly random ways. Additionally, while it's slightly interesting that a maze is included in the book, it serves no real purpose to the gameplay.

Stockton's Thoughts:

This book is about average for Give Yourself Goosebumps. It's not especially good, but not especially bad either. Nevertheless, it does have lots of pointless choices. One asks whether a slamming door makes you scream or jump for no obvious reason.

Still, I must say I was mildly amused by the surprisingly logical second choice on page 50: "If you decide this whole business is too weird for your taste and it's time to close the crate back up again and call the police, turn to page 9." It goes almost without saying that on page 9, you never actually get the chance. But then, that's Give Yourself Goosebumps for you.
