      Comments about Red Rain:

      I usually like this type of book and genre, and I have enjoyed other titles by R.L. Stine... but unfortunately, after several attempts I could not finish this book and abandoned it after getting 3/4 of the way through.
      I was unable to connect with any of the characters. Daniel and Samuel failed to creep me out in the manner I'm sure was intended... and the narration felt dry.
      So this book was not for me.

      I had initially picked it up because the story itself is very interesting. and the mythology behind the story is captivating - it just did not execute well for my interest.

      Comment on this review

      "Red Rain is a slam-bang, stay-up-all-night, leave-the-lights-on thriller. R.L. Stine has scared out kids for years. Now it's our turn ..." -- Harlan Coben "This is a sophisticated thriller with real characters, crisp writing, and a wicked sense of humour. Keep this book far, far away from your kids." -- Douglas Preston "Ready to be haunted by the master? Red Rain proves he's got nightmares for us all" -- Brad Meltzer "Leave the lights on and the door locked. R.L. Stine is now scaring the bejeezus out of grown-ups. Red Rain will put goose bumps on even the toughest adult" -- Kathy Reichs "[T]he pacing couldn't be more perfect as the plot unwinds at a steady speed that maintains plausibility. Stine has written a really scary book, where seemingly impossible situations occur, yet, somehow, he makes them believable" Huffington Post
