Press play and prepare for a spooky, scary ride from the master of horror himself, the inimitable R. L. Stine! In Dr. Maniac vs. Robby Schwartz, Stine spins two dark tales: one about a boy who creates a comic book super-villain and then accidentally unleashes him on the real world, and another about a group of children trapped in a horror amusement park, trying desperately to survive.
Marc Thompson's performance of these eerie stories is pitch perfect, and accentuated by a musical soundtrack creepy enough to make the hair on the back of your neck stand up. Thompson captures the essence of the Goosebumps books, drawing out tension while simultaneously hamming up the humorous aspects of this thrilling audiobook.
Meanwhile, seven ordinary kids are now trapped in the popular theme park called HorrorLand. Can Robby survive long enough to find and save them? A hairy situation awaits in Werewolf Village. . . .

"The lead character is so obnoxious...."
The lead character is so obnoxious he's hard to stomach. Skip this R. Stine piece as he's done so much better. This story is a confusing jumble with constant back and forth between the story reality and story fiction the beginning can be a bit hard to follow and by the time you know what's going on you don't care.
"Brought to life by an awesome narrator."
Can't think of any at the moment.
Dr. Maniac. An amazing villain.
All of them. The man is the man of a thousand voices.
It had a lot of funny bits. Some creepy ones too.
Too bad Marc Thompson didn't narrate more of these.
Maniacal good fun
When dr. Maniac ate the dead squirrel (not the parents choice - the 7 year old is telling me what to write).
Marc Thompson does a great job.
Goosebumps are awesome (said by a 7 year old). As a parent they are fun. I appreciate the imagination she uses when listening to an audio book. Really reduces the tv and video game time. She will listen to books for hours and play legos. These books are not for the child who is easily scared.
