    Having been penned by one of the innovative minds behind the creation of the "Choose Your Own Adventure" Series, Horror House is a comparative failure. It is, in fact, quite possible to read the book and go through several sequences, only to be ordered to turn to specific pages without the element of choice (aside, that is, from putting the book down entirely from boredom). As a child who is investigating the "haunted" happenings at a relative's new home, the reader is involved (through a second- Having been penned by one of the innovative minds behind the creation of the "Choose Your Own Adventure" Series, Horror House is a comparative failure. It is, in fact, quite possible to read the book and go through several sequences, only to be ordered to turn to specific pages without the element of choice (aside, that is, from putting the book down entirely from boredom). As a child who is investigating the "haunted" happenings at a relative's new home, the reader is involved (through a second-person narrator) in the discovery through a limited series of choices. The most common choice throughout the story relies on whether or not the surrogate shares information with other characters, or remains silent. This is, clearly, entirely blasé when put into perspective of the so-called "horror" element of the tale. Twice, I had read through the book not only to fail to uncover the cause of such "haunted" happenings (the discovery of an eviscerated rabbit inside the house, for instance, or unexplained voices eminating from the basement), but was left feeling entirely unsatisfied by the limited opportunities in which to "interact" with the storyline. The reader must "Turn to Page [x]" a total of seven times prior to being offered any imput, and variant upon which choice is made at this juncture (Should you unlock the door, or go for help?), a reader can slog through as many textual pasages before encountering another bona fide narrative option -- still with no guarantee that the story will be resolved in a satisfactory manner. After my own two "lengthy" read-throughs, the story came to an eventual end with no explanation as to the causes behind the milksop "horror" experienced by the main character. This is the nature of "Choose Your Own Adventure," this arbitrary ending. But it should not have to be such a disappointing element after such an investment of time on behalf of the reader.
