After watching " Goosebumps " with my 10 year old, she wanted more. So I got her a few books and I have actually read this now and I have to say, I wish these were available when I was a child. Constant page turner and great little stories that go have that chill factor. Perfect gift weather in paper or via kindle. I will be looking for more, not just for her and her friends but for me also .

HASH(0x9a3b2e04) out of 5 stars Creepy and shocking...A page-turner all the way. 5 July 2003
By Nick G - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Ellie Saks is tired of the city and her dead-end temp jobs so she decides to move to the Hamptons for the summer.
Ellie is just getting out of a relationship with a guy who won't take no for an answer, her mother constantly reminds her of her short comings with her life, and to make matters worse she has started reliving a terrible incident that happened to her back in high school.
Upon arriving in the Hamptons Ellie finds out the job she had lined up has been taken, but a stroke of luck has a new job opportunity placed right in front of her. Ellie meets Abbie Harper, a young woman desperate for a live-in nanny to care for her two children. Ellie takes the job, but what looked like a great job turns to a nightmare as Abbie's young son begins acting weird, and strange things begin happening.
Ellie begins receiving disturbing messages, and the Harper's previous nanny warns of ghosts, and the evil locked inside of Brandon. Ellie dismisses everything, until the messages become gruesome, and a violent act proves that someone wants her dead.
Time is running out for Ellie to find a madman, and as she races to save herself she comes face to face with a horror she never expected.
`The Sitter' is a creepy and suspenseful shocker. Good old fashion horror unfolds in a story that's part supernatural, part slasher, and all-around scary. From it's chilling opening scene to it's surprise ending readers know they are in the hands of a master. R.L. Stine has written countless bestsellers for children and teens, but he out does himself with a gripping thriller for adults that deserves to be a huge success.
You will be hooked with this page-turner that's reminiscent of early John Saul novels.

HASH(0x9a3b2e58) out of 5 stars R.L. Stine at his best... 16 Aug. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is R.L. Stine's second attempt at an adult novel (his first being 'Superstitions'), and I believe it hits the target. At 309 pages, its quite an easy book to read, but at least for me, was a little more challenging than say Goosebumps or Fear Street.
I read R.L. Stine as a child, both the Goosebumps and Fear Street series, and it was quite a surprise to see him write an adult novel. Language, sex, drugs, alcohol, and very difficult situations play into this novel, so I wouldn't recommend it to anyone under the age of 14.
The book is very well-written, and has a great surprise ending (what else would you expect from Stine?). I hope very much Robert continues his current writing process, that being no series, but a novel or two every 6-8 months.

HASH(0x9ab836cc) out of 5 stars Mediocre 16 April 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I used to read Stine's Goosebumps, Fear Street and Point Horror books, and I still find some of his goosebumps books more entertaining than this. In this book, he's clearly finding it hard to shake off his 'teen' style, and sex, drugs, alcohol and excessive swearing don't make this a proper adult thriller. It was too short, almost lazy, but still ok. I'm sure he's capable of writing a proper adult novel given time, and this was too kiddy, too inconsistent. But hey, I'm only 16, what do I know?

HASH(0x9a004bac) out of 5 stars Interesting, but ending didn't hold up. 11 Jun. 2004
By Syrielle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
First of all, I did read to the end so I gave it 3 stars because "The Sitter" did keep me there until the end.
However, the way the plot unraveled and the book ended left much to be desired. There was no way to guess the ending, which was quite random and bizarre, in my opinion. I was expecting a little more realistic creativity rather than unbelievable "whatever" conclusions.
The best thing about this book was the setting (The Hamptons) and the main characters (attractive and young). Stine did a great job developing several characters that kept you wondering about their intentions and mysterious backgrounds.
A pretty fun thriller-style beach book that remains interesting throughout two-thirds of the book and then plummets to its end feeling like you wasted your time. As long as you keep that in mind, you may not be as disappointed as I was.

HASH(0x99fac27c) out of 5 stars Watch out, Stephen K.! 23 Nov. 2005
By Sparkina - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is excellent. It's Stephen King meets "bridget Jones." Though out of the target market, i did read some of Stine's "teen" stuff, and it was GREAT! Like Stephen King Lite --but THIS made Stephano's writings look like nursery tales! The character of Ellie was likable and I cringed when she received the gruesome gifts, and her stalker ex tormenting her. Horror and chick lit combined in a scrumptious, refreshing cocktail of entertainment. Should have bought two copies. i have a feeling I will wear the first one out with rereading
