I am a teacher and bought these for the children in my class who are not the world's best readers and don't get a lot of support at home to be encouraged to read. As these are so often the children who struggle to write because they have no ideas to draw upon from their reading then these books give them lots of different ideas within the same story. They find it a fun way to read and it doesn't seem to be too onerous for them to reach the end of a story. They will go back and read them putting different twists into the tale.

I don't like giving negative reviews. I really don't. Even some of the worst books I've ever read I would probably still give 2/3 stars, as I usually try to look over flaws and plotholes. But I simply cannot get over my utter disappointment on this abomination. Let me elaborate.

Having read one of these CYOA books when I was around 8 yo, I recently got my interest in interactive fiction back, so I looked up and ordered some of these books for no other reason than that the idea, even now, still speaks to my imagination (I'm 27, by the way). At no point did I expect a masterpiece, exceptional writing or elaborate character development, so I was very aware of the limitations of the 'genre' and my expectations were quite low to begin with. But as I said, I was hoping to bring out the inner child by pretending to be 20 years younger and simply enjoying the concept.

But as I sat down to read the first one: Space and Beyond, I could barely believe how bad it is. But hey, maybe I just chose wrongly and therefore arrived at a crappy ending, so I tried again, and again, and again, until I read the whole thing with all its different endings. My opinion remained the same. Two days later I tried some of the others I bought; Journey under the sea, Abominable snowman and Mystery of the maya. Again, no difference. And here's why:

No matter which path you follow, the ending will be abrupt, illogical, incoherent, preachy and not even a little satisfying. This is due to one thing:

The author, R A Montgomery, who wrote all of these paperwastes is unable to construct even a basic logical plot following simple rules like cause and effect to create a narrative. This guy writes stories like an authistic three year old with ADD and the memory of a pea.
