The New Year's Party was a five-star,two thumbs up, all around awesome book. This book was really good and it had a shocker ending. I was horrified. The New Year's party is definitly for anyone who likes to be held in suspence. No one can ever guess the ending. I couldn't put the book down. It was a real pageturner. It is one of R.L. Stine's best Super Chiller books. It was great when,in 1965,two teenagers die,but they don't know it, and when they come back for revenge it leads to murder. You have to read the beginning thoroughly because when you reach the end of the book,the conclusion will make no sense at all, unless you understand the beginning. The New Year's Party was so scary,yet so fun to read. It was spine tingling. I recommend that you go out and buy the New Year's Party by:R.L. Stine.

One thing you should do before reading The New Year's Party: buy it. I highly recommend everyone buy this book before casting your eyes on the first page because as soon as you've finished reading it for the first time you'll want to read it again and again to go over the story once more and to just pick up on those things you sorta missed the first time. Okay, enough buying recommendations, what about the book? Well, I loved it. I thought it was extremely clever and really entertaining to read, and it stands as one of R.L. Stine's finest achievements to date. That man writes much better when he knows he's writing for teens and not children. At the start I didn't really care about the characters in The New Year's Party, but when the horror really starts to roll around, you start to wonder if this mysterious killer is going to get Reenie and her friends or not and you really start to care about them. The mystery is really, well, mysterious. I kind of guessed the plot twist before the end came but that wasn't a problem because I still enjoyed reading the final few chapters. The book really builds on its suspense and is a total page-turner. I read this book in two days. Maybe that's a record for me and how fast I read chapter books. This fabulous mystery will probably be the most enjoyed by young adults and teenagers, but I recommend everyone have a good, scary time reading it!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Reenie and the kids at her Christmas party decided to play a prank on P.J., the new kid at school who never talks. But they're prank goes much farther than they planned--P.J. ends up dead. And when P.J.'s body disappeared, the terror got even bigger. Now, someone is taking P.J.'s revenge by killing Reenie's friends one by one. When midnight strikes, they'll all be dead.
I really love Fear Street books, but this one has got to be one of the best of them all! It had horror, romance, mystery, and a little bit of historical fiction. I really liked how some parts of the book took place in 1965, and some parts now. The beginning was kind of boring, but then it started to get much better. And like most Fear Street books, the ending is a complete shock.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The book starts out in the early morning hours of 1965, two teen siblings, Jeremy and Beth, are killed in a car accident. The book then skips to the present day where Reenie Baker starts dating P.J., the new shy kid. Reenie also makes friends with the new girl in town, Liz.

At a Christmas party, a terrible prank goes wrong. Reenie and her friends believe that P.J. has died of a bad heart. They soon discover that his body is missing. Is P.J. still alive, or is someone out for revenge from the grave?

"The New Year's Party," is a fun read, but it does have some violence in it. Just like real life, the teens in this book can be cruel to others, but R.L. Stine throws in a supernatural twist towards the end. If you're looking for a good thriller, check this book out.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I thought that this book was very suspenceful. The characters were very easy to relate to, however the plot wasn't. I have never been in a situation near death so it was very shocking to see everything that was happening. This story was fun to read because it had parallel plotting. There were two different stories that led up to one suprising conclusion! The book is scary, but kind of like a mystery because you have to recognize who the characters are and what they play in the murders that occured. Overall, I think it was a very good book and I enjoyed reading it.

This book was one of the best of R.L. Stine's books.
The book kept on switching from 1965 to the present time and then back. That part was cool by it's self there,
But the whole story was fantastic.
Trust me.
Also if you want to read another fantastic book buy
Broken Hearts.
You dont want me to go off on that one.
R.l Stine I give mad props to you!!!!

I had a bookreport and I chose this book. It was great. I think it's one of the best books of Stine. I like the books he write, and this one was as great as all the others. In the begining I thought it was a boring story, but later in the story, you get the idea behind the story and you get the point. I can really recommend this story!!! So you want to read a good book, read this one!

This is definatly one of R.L. Stines best. I read this book years ago, but I remember it was very good and scary. It was a real page turner. It is full of twists and turns that makes you read on. It tells about two different time periods, 1965 and present, that intertwine in a suspenceful thriller. It is such a good book you HAVE to read it! Its great and the endings a killer!

More About the Author

Why is Tim Jacobus R.L. Stine's favorite illustrator? Maybe because they've done so many scary books together. Tim did the cover paintings for more than 80 Goosebumps books, as well as the six amazing Amazon books. Recently, the two of them got together and asked the questions they've always wanted to ask each other...

~~~~

TIM (the illustrator) asks R.L. STINE (the author):

TIM: When I illustrate, I can "see" the image in my head before I start to draw. Do you "hear" a story when you write?

R.L.: I hear kids when I write. I try to hear the voice of the boy or girl who is telling the story. I visit schools a lot and talk with kids so I can keep up with what they are saying these days and what real kids sound like. Then I try to hear their voices tell the story as I write it.

~

TIM: You've written so many books I can't do the math, but I bet you've used millions of words. What's you favorite word?

R.L.: Someone once got in an elevator with a very witty author named Noel Coward and said, "Say something funny." And Coward said, "Kangaroo." Kangaroo has been a favorite word of mine ever since I heard that story. But as a horror writer, I guess my favorite word is SCREAM!

~

TIM: Where is the strangest place you have come up with an idea for a story?

R.L.: An empty movie theater. My wife and I went to see a scary movie in a big, old movie house-- and we were the only ones in the theater. It was kind of creepy. Then about halfway through the movie, I turned around and saw that the back row was filled with people sitting straight and still. Suddenly, I thought-- They are zombies! I'm trapped in a dark zombie theater! And that's where the idea for the book Zombie Town came from.

~

TIM: If you couldn't write-- and you possessed all skills-- what would you like to do for a living?

R.L.: I drew comic strips from the time I was in 4th grade, and I always dreamed of being a cartoonist. You can imagine my shock when the other kids told me how bad my art was. They were right. I stunk! I got over my extreme disappointment by starting to write. But if I had the skill, I would love to do what you do, Tim.

**********

R.L. STINE (the author)asks TIM (the illustrator):

R.L.: If you couldn't be an artist what would you like to be?

TIM: I would like to be a "Snowmaker" at one of the big ski resorts, out west, like Mammoth Mountain in California. You work at night when everyone goes home. Set up the snow guns, cover the slopes, and groom them with the Sno-Cat track machine. It's kinda like a snow tank! Then, you get to ski for free! I love that snow!

~

R.L.: When we were kids, my brother and I used to go to a horror movie every Saturday. We loved them all. The covers on our six Amazon books look like movie posters to me. Were you also influenced by horror movies? If so, which ones?

TIM: I was a complete "chicken" as a kid. I couldn't sit through any horror movie. The first scary movie I saw was on TV. It isn't really a horror movie. It was the Hunchback of Notre Dame-- the black-and-white version with Charles Laughton. That movie freaked me out! The mutant, Quasimodo, was something that REALLY could exist. Black-and-white movies, black-and-white photos--they all seem more "real" than full color to me.

~

R.L.: You have painted so many great covers. I think your scariest Goosebumps cover was for The Barking Ghost. And the black cat on The 13th Warning is really creepy. Do you have a favorite cover? Is it a scary one or a funny one?

TIM: It's hard to pick a favorite. But you gotta love the blue bathroom blobs in Monster Blood IV. That one is a little creepy and WAY funny. For just outright scary, I love the ticket taker in Zombie Town!

~

R.L.: What was the weirdest thing someone ever asked you to draw?

TIM: Oh, I have drawn a lot of weird stuff. One time, I had to paint a pimple! You know... acne! It was a medical illustration. Gross. When I first started illustrating, I painted pictures of food. My food illustrations were used in the Sunday newspaper for the local supermarket. I painted every food you can imagine. I can draw a pretty mean potato!
