|User Summary:||Your friend Reggie makes a bet that you and another friend named Julie can't survive the hour from midnight to one A.M. in his father's store, which he claims is cursed. You foolishly accept.|
This is the first book in the series to include a plot line that's largely non-linear and that uses inventory management to prevent the final battle from being won too quickly. Although not a total triumph (there's a continuity error or two that crop up if you do things in the wrong order), it's a decent gamebook, featuring some genuinely interesting gameplay. It sort of reminds me of the Megaman video games in that you have to conquer certain areas first in order to acquire special items which make victory attainable in later locations. The adventure is further enhanced by the fact that an effort has been made to make the little puzzles more interesting and challenging than usual -- the word search puzzle is somewhat unconventional, and the maze is both tricky and restricted by a time limit! The paths that don't lead to the non-linear part of the book aren't nearly as interesting, but they're certainly no worse than average for the series. This is a book worth reading, and if you enjoy it, be sure to also grab a copy of You're Plant Food, which does the same thing, only with even more success.
