Im not much of a reader, but I could not put this book down. I finished it in one week and was sad it was over. Looking forward to his next one.

A fun easy read, definitely reminiscent of "Children of the Damned". I'd like to see this author dig deeper into the darkness of his adult psyche, let's see what original horror is in his mind. The story is well written and carries you easily along with a nice little twist at the end. I'll be looking forward to the next book, I thoroughly enjoyed this one.

All I will say is I would have liked this novel a lot better if I was 13.

I read many Goosebump stories back in the day, and still encourage young readers to try them. This was a fun read. Revenir, revenir, revenir. Once I started, I couldn't stop reading. Stayed up at night reading like I used to with the Goosebump stories.

I was a big fan of R.L. Stine as a kid and was excited to see he had written an adult novel. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. I was not scared at any point in the book. The storyline was weird and the only thing "adult" about the book was the sex scene and the gore. It wasn't a bad book, but definitely not up there with the other adult suspense/thriller writers. He is a good storyteller for the younger readers, but sorry to say I won't be reading any future adult books.

I was super excited when I had seen that R.L. Stine was writing adult fiction. I was an avid reader of his Fear Street series in high school. When I got the chance to review his latest, Red Rain, I couldn’t say no. Lea Sutter has survived Hurricane Ernesto on the island of Cape Le Chat Noir and found two orphaned angelic looking twin boys, Daniel and Samuel, who lost their family. She immediately feels the need to be their mother and bring them home to her husband, Mark, and her children. Mark is a renowned child psychologist whose latest book has a lot of parents gunning for him. Once situated the twins began their devious plans to “rule the school”. Mark is immediately unsettled with the children and feel that they are taking his wife away from him. The twins decide that they need Mark out of their way so they kill several people that could be linked to Mark in order to frame him. Let’s just say the only unique party of this book is the intriguing island that Lea was on. I had high hopes after reading about this island that the dead and the living coexist. Lea also witnesses a ritual that men commit suicide and then brought back to life. Once Lea leaves the island that is the end of it. Nothing really ties back to it. We already know the twins are evil and it is no secret when the murders are committed who were behind it. Red Rain is full of gore as a good horror book should have but that is about it. It did not have a scare factor at all and personally the narrator wasn’t my cup of tea. It was just like any other horror book I have read before. Every now and then Stine threw in a sex scene that felt forced and a “have to” for it to be considered an “adult” book. The police detectives were not very intelligent and seemed to be typical for what you would find in a standard horror novel. Still, if you are a diehard R.L. Stine reader then you will enjoy the trip down memory lane in his latest gruesome creation. (Audiobook was provided by publisher in exchange for an honest review)

Not a bad horror novel but, then, not great either. The book is fun if not a bit cliche. The twist I didn't see coming but should have. Reading this is like watching a decent horror movie on Fear Net. The book does hold your interest as you try to figure what these twins are about but the other characters are rather flat. Plot is okay. The book is probably most fun for fans of the old series Fear Street. There's a familiarity there and the book reads fast. Like most of Fear Street, however, Red Rain is just not good enough to stick.

This is truly one of my favorite books in general and of R.L. Stine's. I am a big fan of his Goosebumps series and this was the first book I read of his that is for adult readers. The book cover design is beautiful. The story was very well told and a complete page turner, I couldn't put it down! I loved the book and if you read it I hope you do too!

I've loved his books since I was a kid, and this one was great.

It had its moments but unless you are a big RL Stine fan, I would not recommend it as a "must read" for the thriller/horror aficionados out there.

Aside from the first thirty pages, I finished this book in one day. It was so good and kept my attention. I couldn't put it down. I loved his goosebumps books when I was a kid and now I love his adult book.
