Fear Street -- where your worst nightmares live...
Chelsea is the typical shy girl. Always home on a Saturday night, she would give anything to have her first date. Finally, Chelsea's luck begins to change when two new guys move into town and both ask her out.
Too bad that one of Chelsea's new boys has a terrible hobby -- murder. Now Chelsea may be looking for love, but he's looking for a new victim.
The Fear is Catching.
Hmm, the premise sounded great but I didn't know that Chelsea was going to be so whinny. Yes, being a very shy girl myself I can relate to her but when she constantly complained and even to her parents (which I never did) it made me not want to like her sometimes. And then the first guy who asks her out, she jumps right on it even though she barely knows the guy- they only like said a couple of words to each other. Even on their first date she invites him over to her house, which they'll have all to themselves. Um, no, I don't think so....
Sadly from the very beginning it wasn't hard to see who was the killer out of the two new boys. Mr. Stine tries to throw you off but there's one thing that caught my attention and I was like, yeah I know who it is. I knew before the halfway mark I believe and that disappointed me.
Overall, this was meh to me. I devoured it, isn't hard with his books but being how obvious it was left me unsatisfied. And though this review may sound like I didn't like it, I still enjoyed it but wished it was a bit better is all.
Sweet Readings Everybody!
