Demian's Thoughts: After a few exceptional books in a row, the series has returned to average here. Only a few things seem notable about this volume. First of all, its atmosphere is a little closer to being genuinely creepy than is usual for the series... but it's still not nearly close enough. Perhaps more interesting is the fact that the adventure isn't as clearly partitioned into multiple unrelated stories as most of the other books in the series are. Usually, in this series, the first choice determines which storyline you encounter. Here, though, there's no such clear partition between the book's storylines. However, just because the book isn't clearly partitioned, don't think that it's a united whole -- it has as much inconsistency as any volume in the series. Finally, there are a few gameplay gimmicks, but they're nothing special -- just some pointless randomization and a "how many words can you find in this phrase?" puzzle. This isn't a bad book, but it's also not really a special one. I am indifferent to it.
