    The Most pointless book ever

    Do you like reading extra long, boring, highly exaggerated, pointless, stupid books? Well, I have an excellent book for you to read. I recommend it to you especially. The book is called ¿Freaks and Shrieks (mostly, ghostly)¿by R.L Stine. To tell the truth I love the series of ¿Goose bumps¿ that R.L Stine wrote but I don¿t even want to know what he was thinking when he wrote Freaks and shrieks. The book is basically about a boy named Max. Max knows to ghosts named Nikki and Tara who live in his house. These two ghosts are absolutely anxious to turn back into living humans again because they are tired of everyone not noticing them. Until one day a short little man started following them and they thought that he was dangerous but it turns out that he really wasn¿t bad he was actually good he wanted to help the two ghosts turn back into humans. When they go back to the laboratory the only way that they could actually turn back into humans is if they used Maxes brain! But ¿¿.. Oh wait I cant tell you the rest of the pointless end. Out of all the statements I made about the book I think that the one that would most describe it is that the book was longer than it should¿ve been because it had a lot of unneeded information. For example, is when R.L Stine writes ¿hee haw hee haw¿ max hesitated for no reason and another example of that is when Max begins to talk about a new flash light that he brought that has nothing to do with the book. I recommend this book to younger kids like in the third grade because for middle schooler's this book would be extremely boring. I actually do recommend reading mysteries but if you don¿t like reading boring mysteries don¿t read ¿ Freaks and Shrieks¿. From a 1-5, I give this book a 3. Even though I didn¿t enjoy it I hope you do.
