5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book
This book is really amazing. Been a few years for the author so was a bit worried but no need because it was so good. Now they may be making it into a film is even better,

I say if you like horror and a good read then this is for you :)

2.0 out of 5 stars More like Fed Up Rain
I had not heard of R L Stine before, I now understand he is known for writing children's books. Perhaps he should stick with that.

The story is pretty weak and predictable. The characters are okay, but there are just too many simple flaws. It is certainly not scary at all. The last couple of sentences at the end just made me cringe.

Please don't...

4.0 out of 5 stars Red Rain, 15 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Red Rain (Paperback)
R.L Stine is perhaps better known for his Goosebumps series for young adults. "Red Rain" is for the grown ups. It's not particularly scary but it does have some chilling moments. The book has a Village of the Damned feel about it, but is in no way a reworking of the classic. It is a good, thrilling read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Heavily Disappointing, 10 Oct 2012

This review is from: Red Rain (Paperback)
To be blunt I was expecting quite a lot from this book, not only because its been a few years since RL Stine was last released but because I felt that the brand of horror he brought to people of my sisters age would have ben brought bang up to date to scare the hell out of them as adults.

Sadly this wasn't the case as for my money this felt more like a cash in than a real attempt at getting a serious tale out there. The characters were laughable, the story one I've heard something similar before and when added to what appeared to be any lack of humanity within the lead character that should have exhibited some sort of intelligence and all in I felt really cheated. It's a great shame all round and if you have to read this wait until its in a charity shop, at least that way you'll be doing some good with your money.
