I say to all fans of books, "Read on!"
am 23. Juli 1996
This was the first R.L. Stine book that I had ever read. Now I have read over 50 books by R.L. Stine. He is one of the greatest young adult authors that I, personaly know of. His Fear Street and Goosebump books are a huge hit at the Dallas City, Illinois Public Jr. High School.
I loved this book, The Cuckoo Clock of Doom, and have read it 2 or 3 times! I could really get in to it because I have an older brother that I also would sometimes like to have disappear. He has done some of the things, like tell my crushes that I like them, as in this book.
I am also a big fan of things like time travel. In this book, Cuckoo Clock of Doom, a boy of about 12 or 13 years of age gets sent back to the past over a few days of his life only to try to get back.
This boys frustration I can sempathize with. I haven't been sent back through time, no. I have had hard time witch I thing everyone can understand. The adults that I know of don't even celebrate their birthdays to the extent that the younger genaration dose today. When an audlt reads this book, even though it's geared for young adults, they will enjoy this book remembering the good times that they have had as a youth.
For all of the above resons is why I recomend this book to any person of any age. The only reson I give this book only a 9 is because I have read a few, not many, books that I thought bettter. I am glad to say, though they were by R.L. Stine.
