I, like many other reviewers here, remember fondly reading these type of books as a child, flipping back and forth, reading all the twists to each excitingly different ending. My memory isn't sharp enough to say if these are the actual books or not. They seem much shorter now, but of course I'm now viewing them from an entirely different perspective.

I bought this set for my daughter when she was 9, thinking that she would love the books as much as I did. I was mistaken. She blew through them and moved on. It's not that she doesn't enjoy reading, beause she does. But I think today's kids have so many more exciting things available to them than we did, so it just doesn't have the same effect. For us, these books were our video games of the time!

So my advice to you would be to find just one of these books used, or borrow it at a library, and gauge your child's interest before buying these fairly expensive sets.

Got this as a gift set for a child - friend who doesn't like to read so much.

I remember these from when I was a child. My brother liked them because you can "choose a path to follow" every few pages. It makes kids feel like they're taking part in an ACTIVE adventure... almost like a game. As a result, kids are more willing to sit down with the book and attempt reading.

As a teacher, I've recommended this to so many parents as a means to get children interested in reading. Since reading motivation has a lot to do with confidence, books like this are a bonus because they're active, exciting and use very basic language. Any 4-6 grader should be able to pick these up and enjoy them.

My nine year old loved these books, even though they're well beneath his reading level. He lost his daddy a few years back and identifies with anything that Daddy had done/read. When he found out that he enjoyed these books when he was little, he just had to have them. He reads them over and over, each time with a different twist. Very entertaining!

I remembered the "Choose Your Own Adventures" fondly from my childhood, so for Christmas I bought the first set of books for my 5 1/2 yr old. While some of the text and concepts are still a little over his head occasionally, he really loves them. We work with him on reading and use the choices to encourage him to really think about what we have read as opposed to simply passive listening. The great part is... I don't remember the stories and I love getting to experience them again. Going to be buying the next set when I finish this review as we have read all of the first set of books pretty much through and through...

I wish more of these types of books were written.

Thanks!

My grandson Loves these books. Choose your own adventures. These books when they came out my kids read them. They are very hard to find. They can change the adventures my going to certain pages for different outcomes to the stories. This has 6 books in the series and the price is great for what you get. A must read for all teens!

My husband remembered having these when he was a kid, so Santa brought them for my 9 year old who loves to read. He likes that he can read them over and over and that he can alter the story each time.
I wish they had some new ones that would appeal to my daughter. She likes them, but not as much as my son.

I bought these books for my son he says "they're interesting to read and I especially like mystery ones. What I like best is that there are bunch of different parts so like you can mix up one page and it still makes sense. I also like that there are tons of endings." I remember reading these books when I was a kid and thought he might like them too. He doesn't have the same love of reading his sisters and I do and I'm trying hard to cultivate that. So glad he likes them, will be purchasing additional sets in the future.

I bought this for my son to show him an alternative to mindless video games. He read through one adventure and then tossed it aside. I liked them, though. This might be a better gift for some of us older 80's generation kids. Today's youth are too absorbed with the power of their graphic card rather than the power of their imagination.
