Last night I finished reading my first Goosebumps book to my oldest son, and let's just say it wasn't what I was expecting! I was surprised by the depth of vocabulary and complexity of the dialogue between the characters. Also, I was pretty darned surprised that there really was a ghost in there!
For a simple premise, the book did a great job of transporting both my son and I to new creepy places and making us question what was coming next. Yes, the next Goosebumps book is already on reserve at the library!
