Review: Curtains by R.L. Stine

Cover Source:
Title: Curtains
Author: R.L. Stine
Version Reviewed: Finished, hardback.

GoodReads Summary:
Her terrifying secret was buried--until driven director Meritt Baxter tore it out of her during a performance. Suddenly Rena wasn't safe anymore. And the Merritt Baxter Summer Theater Camp had become a trap, where Bax would stop at nothing to elicit emotions that would lead to murder--onstage.
As with all R.L. Stine novels, I loved this book. It's an eerie thriller written for teens and young adults.

This book was pretty violent. Everything from animal slaughter, suicides, stabbings, attempted drowning, gunshots, and even slashing of Rena's clothing. Swan lovers beware.

This book kept you guessing for quite a while. It was hard to figure out the killer's identity and motive and it had that classic Stine twist of an ending.

I enjoyed the characters and the setting of Curtains. Since it is set at an acting camp, it's hard for Rena and the reader to tell when characters were acting and when their actions, thoughts, and words were genuine.

Must read for any R.L. Stine fan.

Favorite Character:
Rating: 4 Stars.
