    After nearly short circuiting my brain pounding massive, phone-book sized classics like War and Peace and the first two volumes of Journey to the West, I decided that I would revisit some childhood favorites for some R&R. Pure YA junk food. And it doesn't get much junkier than R. L. Stine. I vividly remember eating these books up, knowing they weren't very good even then but consuming them addictively for their mix of comedy, horror, sci-fi and adventure elements. This one is a little schlockier than many (the heavy comedy influence never QUITE sticks, and the comic vampire villain swings between Mel Brooks and menace a little too loosely), but it's one I treasure for the memories it provides.Christmas Eve and I was newly eight years old... I remember sitting on the bed in the guest bedroom, a room I improbably decided was my "reading room." The lamp cast an orange, shadowy glow as I read through this one in the dark, just after taking a walk in the light snow with my parents, my little brother and my aunt. We carried powerful flashlights and swung them around like lightsabers, with my mom and aunt teasing me that we were "just checking for vampires." With a story like that, who cares if the book was good or not?

    (1.5 Stars)Four reasons young readers will enjoy How To Be A Vampire1. It's pure vampire fantasy. The protagonist, Andrew, gets to experience flight as a bat, travelling through cracks in doors as a red mist and running through the town as a wolf.2. Young readers (and boys in particular) will enjoy the fighting between Andrew and his sister, and the tricks he plays on her. Like Andrew, they might also think that the best thing about being a vampire would be the possibility of scaring a sibling!3. There's a strong bad guy, whom the three central characters have to team up on in order to have a chance against his vampiric powers. He's not too scary, though, so more sensitive readers shouldn't have nightmares.4. The ending is very much in the horror genre vein and young readers will probably enjoy the twists and turns of the plot as it reaches that point.Two things that may disappoint about How To Be A Vampire1. The vampire myth is not expanded upon in any way. Hall's vampires are taken solely from the more popular aspects of the mythology, with no real attempt to personalise them at all. This leads to the story feeling a little unimaginative.2. As a protagonist, Andrew doesn't have a lot of personality. Because there isn't a lot to identify with about his character, readers are likely to be less invested in the struggle between him and Count Ved.

    Rating: Step Into The Light (Good Enough to Read But Not Own)A fun, fast junior fiction read for all fans of the old school vampire style. Middle school boy wakes up one morning to discover two small bite marks on his neck and comes to the realization that he just might have been a late-night snack for a hungry bloodsucker. A bit like the Goonies meets The Little Vampire, this Fear Street novel is great for struggling readers and makes for a fun and easy summer read. It is thin enough that non-readers won't balk at its length and the short sentences and casual dialogue are designed to encourage rather than hinder hesitant readers. Think of it along the lines of a Goosebumps televisions series segment. Fun bubble-gum fluff with fangs.

It was amazing book I read the whole thing.

    I read this to my children last week ( Ages 6,8, and 11) and we all enjoyed it. It had a few frightening or intense scenes, but nothing too gruesome. There was humor relating to situations that children with siblings all tend to deal with. This was not one of my favorite vampire books, but it was a good for the children and it was a light read. If you're an adult, don't expect it to be on par with Twilight. This is written for a younger audience.

    Keep in mind that I am adult reviewing this book - one who loves R L Stine and vampires.I thought this was going to be more fun than it was. The story seemed goofy and didn't make much sense. The characters were poorly developed, especially of Vlad.It did read quickly. I live in NYC and got it finished in one bus and subway ride.

    3.5 starsYes the writing of this is not great, yes it's juvenile, and yes the characters (particularly Count Ved) are not great but this was still a really cute little vampire story that I thoroughly enjoyed.

    I wanted a light quick vamp read for New YEars so I chose this one. A boy who loves horror and is fascinated by vampires finds his life changed when he is bitten by one and starts changing into one - an official vampire-in-training

    I expected this book would be horror but to my surprise it turned out to be completely funny.

    Not too scary, but not too dumbed down. When I read this back in the day, I didn't know what a bagel was. Now, whenever I have one, I think of this book.

    This was bad. This was not a good R.L. Stine book at all.

    It brings me back. One of the first vampire books I read. I got a little obsessed with it, to be honest. It's more for pre-teens.
