Possible spoiler alert:So this one leaves no death uncovered. A ghost realtor sells the family a home, kills two members, ruins their lives, and makes everyone left go crazy. What I don't get about this story is the finances: who buys a first home without a mortgage, especially after waiting so long? How were they able to pay for the housekeeper when they were starting to struggle and not sure they were going to stay in the house. This one was loaded with gore.

I thought that this book was pretty good. I thought that it was really scary, but I thought that it was a little predictable. I had a good idea of what was going to happen in the end, but I found it to be very scary as well. All in all, I thought this was a very good start to the 99 Fear Street books. It is a pretty good read!

This is the best book I've ever read! I'm 20 years old and I was cleaning out my room and I found some old R.L. Stine and Christopher Pike books that I used to read. They brought back so many memories, but this was definatly the best and I'm a little embaraced to say, but I'm reading it over... I just had to!!

I loved this book. Its plot was really good. I think that the other two books aren't as good as the first even though that they really good.

I loved this book. But then again I love all of R.L Stine books. I think they are such a thriller and sometimes the suspense is to much and I end up skipping a few pages. I would definitly read this book again wouldn't you.

I like this book alot. It has alot of interesting events in it. IT has alot of action and alot of gory parts. So if you don't like that kinda stuff don't read this book. It never gets boring and it's JUST INTERESTING!

I really liked this book because it had ALOT of action and suspense! But I didn't give it five stars because it was VERY gory.. unlike some Fear Street books, and some people don't like that.. I don't mind it. I didn't like the ending. If you liked this book then you will also like the 2nd and 3rd horror.
