Guillermo's Thoughts:

Dan Jolley's style of designing gamebooks involves introducing widely different storylines depending on the choices the reader makes. None of the plots presented here have much depth to them, and the outcomes of choices are quite random, so therefore I found the book rather uninteresting. This is not nearly as innovative and involving as the excellent Vampire Hunt, and you can skip it without regret.
