The Scariest Stories You've Ever Heard, Part II Reviews
Love this series of short, scary stories! These are easily some of the spookiest ones I've ever read! Will definitely be keeping these with me through the years! Favorite one's: Terror Trip, The Last Initiation, The Rose Garden, The HitchhikerScariest one: The Last initiation
A while back I'd gotten a copy of some other scary stories volume and was like uh I guess these are giving me terrific nostalgic shivers but like not really? But then at one of the million yardsales we just went to in Minnesota Joe picked up THIS and I was like OH BECAUSE I HAD THE WRONG ONE BEFORE and then spent the evening deliciously hooting my way through all the back alleys of my kid-year old creeper self who used to love to lie in bed pretending moths at the windows were fingers. Bloodcurdling.
3.5 stars. Fun and quick ready, and surprisingly scary (I don't scare easily!). A bunch of these stories were already familiar to me, but a few were new, and pretty creepy for stories geared toward children. Actually, I think these are probably a bit too scary for middle school-aged kids and may be more suitable for young adults. "Terror Trip" and "Trick or Treat" were stand-outs for me. I'd definitely check out the other two books in this series for a short, fun summer read.

The stories were enjoyable for any age group -- simple & short enough to recall to tell around the campfire.
I borrowed this book from openlibrary on an impulse. I thought it would be fun to read scary stories before going to bed. The first few stories are more disturbing rather than scary. Then it gets creepier and creepier. After The Man on the Dock story I decided to stop reading this book because it scared me (I was reading it at 2 AM). I continued reading and finished this book in the morning when the sun shines bright. It was fun but I'm not sure if reading this book before going to sleep is such a good idea.
Besides the use of the word 'neat-o' to describe someone, twice, the stories are in fact not the scariest I have read. They are more like retold urban myths. Didn't bother to finish it. It is now in the donate box for the local library. The writing was good, but used typical 1989 cliche words.
I remember reading this book as a kid, in the late 80's! The stories in this book are better than some of the spooky stories that are written today.....except for the Goosebumps books!
