Not #1 3 Jan 2011
By Melbourne Australia - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This was not in fact the first CYOA. The first was 'The Cave of Time' by Edward Packard.
So why is 'The Abominable Snowman' being shown as the first in the series? Well... R?A. Montgomery (the author of this book) co-founded CYOA with Edward Packard. They were the Lennon and McCartney of CYOA, if you will (there's a good Wikipedia article about its history). Sadly, somewhere along the line the two went their separate ways and Montgomery, when reviving CYOA, seems to have written Packard out of the series' history. It's like McCartney deleting all Lennon's songs from the Beatles back catalogue!
If you are interested in acquiring the REAL first CYOA title, the classic 'Cave of Time', as well as other works by the author many regard as CYOA's best, don't bother with these CYOA re-releases. Instead you will have to go to Packard's 'u-ventures' website, where they have been repackaged, revised and expanded by Packard himself, and turned into really neat iPhone apps. Check them out. I definitely recommend them over the Montgomery titles - including this one.

Choose Your Own Adventure - Abominable Snowman Kindle Version is Abominable 6 Jan 2010
By Katie - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Downloaded the Kindle version as a fun bedtime story for my child. The first couple pages had typos "...climbing in South American", "but what is is?" Further, the instructions say, "If you don't like your choice, press PREVIOUS PAGE to go back and decide again." When we selected PREV PAGE, it went to a different thread of the book instead of the choice page, as it should have done. Improvements would be great as these were really fun stories to read when I was a child, but the problems with the Kindle version put a damper on my enthusiasm.

A Fun, Old Time Read on the Kindle 16 Dec 2009
By Michael Gillett - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Back in the middle ages when I went to school the Choose Your Own Adventures came out. It was a perfect time for me and our school library couldn't keep the books on the shelves. This is the first book in the series and it is a joy on the Kindle. The navigation was easy, the pictures were all there, and the feeling of reading the book remained. I'm not sure I'll be buying the other books on the Kindle though. This was a kind of kitsch purchase for me. A fun walk down memory lane, but like other children books, not something I need to re-read or spend a lot of money on.

If you're like me and read these books as a kid and have a Kindle as an adult it's worth the couple of bucks to snag one. If you can trust your kids with a Kindle then they will probably enjoy this as well. And lastly, if you want a history of interactivity, then you would want to buy one of these as well.

RL 4 - 11, Excellent Book- Self Motivation for Reading 28 Mar 2006
By Bobbies.Books - Published on
Format: Paperback
The Choose Your Own Adventure series is excellent to motivate your children and students to read. The book lets you make your own choices and find out what happens to your character. Kind of like a video game in a book. This particular one The Abominable Snowman is one of RA Montgomery's best and will be lauched on DVD in August of 2006. Imagine being able to make your own choices on DVD and in a Book that effect the outcome of you as the main character.

If you choose to lauch you adventure in reading, go to page 5.

If you choose to miss the biggest thing since Harry Potter, go to page 36.

Good idea, bad execution 7 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Back in its heyday, the "Choose Your Own Adventure" series was one of the best, most exciting series for kids there was. Especially good were the ones by Edward Packard. His colleague R.A. Montgomery wrote less successful efforts. This one displays his fondness for negative and often arbitrary endings, as well as for a sort of new agey bizarreness. Ace illustrator Grainger is always good, though I wonder to think that anyone would ever pay for a hardcover of this light text, when a paperback would do.
