This book is, in my opinion, THE best book in the fantastically creepy and mystical Which Way series! I first read it when I was about 10 years old, and it did indeed give me nightmares. The deliciously scary stories that can unfold from your choices in this book include: being trapped in a small town under alien control and being devoured by black slime, trying to escape from a haunted house inhabited by dark forces (which has many adventures within an adventure), or witnessing a Frankenstein-like mad scientist try to bring his only son back from the dead with other people’s body parts.
I honestly think that any child under the age of ten should proceed with extreme caution when reading this book, as it is truly scary! But that is what makes it so good!
Incidentally, R.G. Austin was really two sisters: Rita G. Austin and Nancy Austin, now Rita Golden Geldman and Nancy Lamb. Their Which Way books gave the Choose Your Own Adventure series a run for its money in the early to mid 80s, due to the fact that they are generally scarier and more exciting. ;>)
