Don't get me wrong. I LOVE Stine's writing. Goosebumps comprised about a fourth of my childhood reading time--I couldn't get enough of those creepy, chill-raising books. And I can't WAIT to read Red Rain, his first adult horror novel. So...is it just me? Am I growing up? Is writing horror myself alerting me to the tricks the genre and spoiling the suspense? Or are vampires just so totally overdone at this point that any book concerning them makes me roll my eyes.
I'm about halfway through Temptation. I've blown past the first death and hardly blinked at it. But I'll save my final verdict on the novel for the last page.
Have you read R. L. Stine's new horror novel? What were your thoughts on it? And what are your thoughts on the horror genre in general?
