    1. Margaret s father may be a botanist, but what he s doing in the basement suggests he may be a mad scientist A tall, treelike plant sighed and appeared to bend toward them, raising its tendrils as if beckoning to them, calling them back This book is undeniably kitschy, and then BOOM the author drops some serious science into the mix DNA, genome mapping, reproductive isolation, genetic modification and transgenics These topics are explored in simpler terms, but they re nonetheless present That s w [...]

    2. This was a jittery one.Even for the brave hearted.Two common children, siblings, are happy that their dad is doing plant research in their basement.The research is all harmless, says the blurb Nothing to worry about.Believe me that s a white lie.Whatever happens you should not go venturing into the basement There s where strange things reside.The curiosities of the children gets peeked up on seeing their dad exhibit traits of plants Is he a freak botanist Do they go and find out the truth in the [...]

    3. Sooooo Book two I liked this story quite a bit than the series opening book It had some issues, but on the whole, it was a better story and made a hell of a lot sense than Welcome to Dead House The premise here is that the family moved to Cali for Dad to take a job in a science lab but then his experiments started getting a little strange and dangerous, and so he was let go But he didn t care, he just kept up the work IN THE BASEMENT THAT EVERYONE SHOULD STAY OUT OF He s down there nearly 24 h [...]

    4. 4 starsWhen Goosebumps came out, I was in my later teenage years and was reading King and Koontz and Agatha Christie, deep down inside, I ve always been jealous of the kids that grew up with Goosebumps books and have always wanted to try them I would have loved these and read every single one if I had of been a kid when they came out.This is book 2 in the first series While I wish I had of read book 1, it isn t necessary, story wise My son loves these books and I can see why They would be on the [...]

    5.

    6. The second book in the Goosebumps series, Stay Out Of The Basement, did not disappoint What started out slightly slow picked up in a couple of chapters On the surface this book is about a father who was recently been fired from his job, his obsession with making a scientific breakthrough, his descent into madness, and the two children suffering to learn their father s secrets Stay Out Of The Basement is a brilliant combination of a story where Poison Ivy meets Frankenstein meets Little Shop of H [...]

    7. I loved this one.Although, these cliffhanger endings are really frustrating, seeing as most of the books in this series are standalone, and I want to know what happens next, Damn you

    8. Introducing my daughter to the wonderful world of horror She loved it l have always wanted to read these books Now I have perfect excuse Great fun.

    9. The book I am reviewing name is Goosebumps Stay out of the basement by RL Stines It is a science fiction book My thinking is the books theme is that never listen too your dad if he has leaves sprouting of his scalp.The book starts with DR Brewer he is scientist who research on plants shifts his experiments into the basement because he gets fired from his job One day Casey and Margaret Dr Brewer s kids went into the basement to call their dad but unfortunately they get yelled at by their dad he a [...]

    10. La verdad es que el libro es un pel n rarito No me ha defraudado, porque empec a leerlo ya que era el pr ximo que tocaba para seguir el orden de la colecci n, pero no ten a pinta de que fuera a gustarme tanto como los anteriores Sobre todo algunos No est mal, pero de no ser que est s siguiendo la colecci n por orden como yo, te aconsejo que pases a otro n mero porque lo encuentro demasiado infantil Y por supuesto nada de miedo en ning n momento ni similar.

    11. 3,5 m s bien Me ha gustado, y s que de peque o me hubiera encantado, pero no ha sido de mis favoritos de la serie Aun as , est bastante bien de todos modos.

    12. I really loved the twist at the end This wasn t as well written as the first book, but it was still enjoyable.

    13. This is the 2nd book in the Goosebumps series, and I do think the first one was better, although both tales have similar scores I ve always wondered whether people whose favorite genre is horror are really frightened by what they read And if not, then why do they keep coming back Fear is an emotion everyone wants to avoid Genuine fear has only recently in our history been isolated from its companion, Danger The fear in a bungee jump, say, is almost devoid of danger, that s why it s a pastime Bun [...]

    14. This is the first book I ever remember reading I mean, I m sure that my parents and grandparents read me stories as a yute, but the Goosebumps series is one I can remember choosing to read this nuance is important.My copy of Stay Out of the Basement is with the original cover, a green very detailed hand coming out of the basement This is the original edition from 1992, from when I was 10 years old I have to say, the nostalgia of holding the same book I read almost 20 years ago is a high water ma [...]

    15. Goosebumps stay out of the basement is a great book This book is mysterious and eerie This book is about two kids and their crazy father.The kids are named Casey and Margaret The story starts when the children s father starts to act very wierd and suspicious The kids think something happened to their father, but they don t know what The kids suspect it has something to do with him workng down in their basement Casey and Margarets father is working with plants and machines down in the basement do [...]

    16. My daughters and I recently read Goosebumps 1 Where that book was written in classic ghost story style, Stay Out of the Basement was much modern Where the first book had many gothic elements, this one was typical of today s off beat horror works The first book had a creepy feel the entire way through the book while number two just felt weird.One thing the books did have in common was a cliffhanger ending Stine obviously uses this technique purposely In the first book it felt very natural With [...]

    17. Another amazing read in the Goosebumps series R.L Stine is on a roll here Who the hell would have thought these books would still be enjoyable after all these years This book was actually scary In a way, scarier than an adult book would be because it is told in the point of view of a young child her little brother, whose mom has to go to Arizona to be with her sick sister and leaves the kids alone with their insane father who spends literally ALL his time locked in the basement conducting twiste [...]

    18. Well Welcome to Dead House was better in my opinion I m not to keen on plant human scientific dna stuff and I kind of knew what was happening from the start so the story was kind a dragged on for me, but still a very interesting book.Judging a book by its cover the other editions clearly show a human plant I expected a completely different story Like a monster in the basement killing all visitors or something, but it turned out alright.One thing I realized after reading this book, was that I nev [...]

    19. Another five star read from R.L.Stine Goosebumps is great, like short, sweet creepypastas, who can also be funny, but still disturbing view spoiler Here a girl witnessed her father eating food for plants, a boy was grabbed by animal plants and they both so human tomatoes hide spoiler it sounds absurd, but eerie as well Loved it.Review in Bulgarian here citadelata %D1%81%D1%82%D0

    20. Esperimenti verde speranza Mass , divertente vicenda con due ragazzini alle prese con pap che non assomiglia troppo a pap.La storia regge benino, tra una scemenza e l altra ma la solita stoccata finale, come da pronostico, raddrizza i bambini per metterli al loro posto di giustezza.

    21. The two stars are for the last paragraph, its idea is simply awesome Maybe the world became scarier than horror stories, that s why I can t enjoy em any

    22. This book is quite good, not that scary I just love how it caters to teenagers.

    23. Mi spiace dirlo, ma l ho trovato noioso I capitoli mi sono sembrati uno la copia dell altro rendendo la storia parecchio ripetitiva.

    24. I enjoyed this one compare to book 1 What a creepy mad scientist How I wish I can turn HUMAN to plants, why It s eco friendly LOL

    25. R.L Stine combines science and obsession in a winning formula with his second Goosebumps novel, Stay Out of the Basement Casey and Margaret s father, Dr Brewer, has been spending an unusual amount of time down in the family s basement, working on his experiments with plants He doesn t talk to his family much any he doesn t seem interested in anything except his scientific studies One day the two siblings sneak down to the basement when their parents are away and discover their father isn t worki [...]
