      As you may, or may not have noticed, my review have been somewhat different to the others, the reason being is that I have been to see my English teacher and she had said that many of my reviews had been in 1st person and that I should be writing them in 3rd person as it makes reviews much more better. But in my opinion it has quite made them worse and that those reviews have reached a somewhat lower than expected rating. So today I shall write in 1st person as I usually do and see if my rates are higher or lower than the ones before and then see which is better for me to write in 1st or 3rd. The reason I bought this book is because I am reading all the Goosebumps books in order. There must have been a reason why there was an order of chronology to put them in this way. This is book 4 and I have yet have spotted why they all were put in this way, whether R.L. Stine wrote them in this order or whether the publishers saw some connection between each of them, or they were just thrown into any sort of order, I do not currently know, but I do hope I shall find the answer at the end of the whole series! Now this book was quite intriguing. I shall not say it was my favourite as it wasn't, but definitely one for someone to read. My favourite so far has to be the first book in the series, Welcome to Dead Town. And if anyone who decides to read all the Goosebumps books in order will probably agree with me that the first book is a good one. Anyway considering this review is not currently on about the 1st book I shall no0t go into any more depth about it. This book was quite scary for a 5-10 year old, considering I'm currently 15 I wasn't scared, although there was unexpected bits that I was quite wondering how they were going to get out of these twists. It starts off with the main character Gabe. Now he has gone on holiday with his parents and his uncle and his cousin Sari. His uncle is an Archaeologist and he is their personal guide. But something comes up and his parents leave him with his Uncle and his know-it-all older cousin. He gets to go into the pyramids and follows his cousin around and everything, but then someone kidnaps Sari and Gabe and they manage to escape out of the car, but they have no idea where they're going and then ask a nice man where their hotel is and its right in front of them. But to get rid of this kidnapper they have to kill the mummy. Its part of the curse, but problem is they are trapped and ready to become mummies themselves... How are they going to get out of this? Or are they going to become mummies? You can never quite know the answers to the questions with R.L. Stine! This book is priced at a shocking price of £2.99 which in my opinion is dead worth it for everyone and anyone. I believe on Amazon however they are even cheaper possibly £0.01, but you might end up spending more due to the Postage and Packaging fees. There are very good points about the book ,especially where R.L. Stine keeps you reading quicker and quicker, but there are also some bad points like there is predictable moments, and a few boring bits but overall, even grandparents would like this book, I surely did! So if I was you I'd go and buy this book, even if you think it's not your thing, I think it is so for anyone who is buying it, once you have it you'll probably get annoyed by the disturbances you may have around your house as you are mesmerized by this book and you'll want to endlessly read it and finish it and you don't want anyone to make you stop reading it even if it means for 1 complete whole second, you'll think 1 second is an hour! So GET THIS BOOK NOW, before you die, everyone has to read this book! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
