great book! Sep 6, 2007
my son loves these books! he likes that you can choose how the story ends and then read it again and choose a different ending. nice to have a book that can be read more than once and still be fun.
Warning: This is NOT the original version Apr 20, 2007
Don't buy this book expecting a reprinting of the original 1982 Choose Your Own Adventure book. The text has been revised, though the revision is serviceable enough; but what's worse is that all of the illustrations have been replaced with hideously bad cartoons. Words cannot even express how amateurish and badly drawn these cartoons are, and they're on nearly every page, so it's impossible to ignore them. Buy a used copy of the original book, or choose something else to read.

This book is crazy. You are a young detective, solving crimes. The story begins with a mysterious phone call for help. You end up following clues to the old site of a prison. That is where the real adventure begins. There are talking chimpanzees, a professor, genetically altered plants, aliens, explosions, and all sorts of advanced technology! Each turn of the page brings a new scene with new characters and new dangers. It's up to you how the story ends.
great innovative idea Apr 6, 2000
This was the first of the Choose Your Own Adventure books that I ever read, and I loved it. That was about fifteen years ago. I am currently trying to hunt all of them down and add them to my collection, because I loved them so much growing up.
These books are perfect for a younger reader. They are not straight novels. They are not 300-400 pages long. In fact, some adventures can last about 3 or 4 pages! They are not filled with big words, and they are not boring. In fact, they're aimed at pure action and adventure, yet they're not violent at all. There's little plot and character building, which is something that might turn a younger reader off.
Plus, as small as each book is, they contain numerous different stories. It is up to the reader to decide how the story ends. It is Nintendo in book form!
In this particular book, you are investigating a mysterious house. Who owns the house? What kind of strange things or people will you encounter?
If you are looking for material to encourage a child to read for any reason, these books are perfect!
