A Kid's Review on January 2, 2003
Format: Paperback
Wow I can't believe it! This is the first Goosebumps book I've read and it's good so far. I always thought goosebump books are not good until now. The story is about a boy named Max who's birthday party just ended. When Max decides to bring his left over friends upstairs to his room, Max's friend Erin is so excited to go to the attic so they go there instead. Then Max's dog finds a hidden door and starts scratching it. Max finds that there is a mirror that sllows him to turn invisible. The next time Max turns invisible it will be.....forever....

Bought for my 8 year old daughter after a discussion about how I used to read these books at her age. It didn't disappoint. Also, the book was in good condition (used) and shipped really fast. Will definitely buy from them again!

Though not in the very highest echelon of Goosebumps entries, Let's Get Invislble! comes close, and hails from a time in which Stine took a darker and more carefully written approach to the series. No silly monsters here.

I like Max. He's a good kid who looks out for his little brother, nicknamed Lefty, and is cautious of the potential dangers of the mirror, which turns characters invisible when they pull a light switch. The brothers and their friends (two girls and a boy) compete to see who can be invisible the longest, which eventually becomes less interesting since they do very little with the powers of invisibility. But the mirror is like a drug in that it makes the user grow faint the longer he/she is invisible, though for some reason, Max feels the side effects more than the others. I wish the consistencies were more ironed out, but it still works.

Blogger Troy Steele said that this is the most leisurely-paced of the series, and I agree. Time is taken to build suspense, drip out every moment of angst, and make characters likeable. You really need to "stick with it". Chapters are longer than most in the series, keeping false scares at a minimum and paying more attention to fleshing out the story. It's also the longest of the series, at 139 pages, which I noticed as a kid.

Let's Get Invisible is a good read and I recommend it.

Bit disappointed in Stine with this effort, compared to other invisible man (boy/girl) adventures this story is pretty mild entertainment and thriller wise. Stine is one of the better Horror/scary story authors out there, I just expected more. It's almost as if the invisibility part of the story is only even there as it is needed to tie the reason for Max, his brother and friends to hang out around the mirror, the chances to have fun with the characters being invisible just isn't explored. We the reader, only have one experience of a character doing anything with the unsuspecting public and that was very mild indeed.

Plus Stine takes the lazy option of food eaten, clothes, hair and everything else turning invisible as well as the human which again misses the reader out on opportunities for funny or interesting situations with the characters, especially since Max (the main character) would have to have been naked to fully be invisible in the same room as girls that go to his school (including one he thinks is cute). The author could have let the reader have a lot of fun with something like that. There are just a lot of areas this story could have gone that it didn't which make it disappointing being such as simple and uneventful storyline and how predictable is the ending as well?

If you don't know what this book is about but the title seems interesting to you, it's the story of Max who just turned 12, who after his birthday party while taking a girl he likes, her friend and his younger brother up to the attic discovers a room (that somehow his parents and everyone else have never noticed before) which has an old large mirror inside. Tugging on the chain to turn on the light he becomes invisible and only reappears when the light is turned off.

ISBN 059045370X - Maybe because it's an early volume this is, in my opinion, one of Stine's better books. Later in the series, many stories just got a little too silly.

Max has a dog named Whitey, a left-handed brother nicknamed Lefty and a few friends. Pretty standard kid, average life. Until his birthday party, when boredom prompted the kids to investigate the attic and Whitey found a hidden door. Behind the door is a small room that holds just a mirror - but it's not like any mirror you own! Attached to the top of the mirror is a small light and when it's turned on, the person in front of the mirror becomes invisible. For the kids, it's something different to play around with and it doesn't SEEM dangerous.

The only flaw Max finds is that, after being invisible for a while, he feels lightheaded and it takes longer for him to become visible again when the light is turned off. He's not sure why that is, but he's going to find out - and he's not going to like it. If he's around that long!

Not scary-scary, but a little creepy-scary. Makes you look at mirrors a little differently for a day or so. :-) I have yet to come across a Goosebumps title that refers back to an older story, but I couldn't help but think that Max's grandparents have a story that ought to be told - and I hope Stine tells it someday.
