    • This book has me thinking of the ever-popular 8675309 song. It's a cheesy little thriller reminiscent of the 1980's and films like Slumber Party Massacre and Prom Night, but though it's a little limited in the way of vocabulary and good character development, if you love horror I'd still definitely recommend it, if for nothing more than a laugh.

    • Holy crap this book is terrible. Everyone has serious mental health problems, not a single one of them reacts to anything in a psychologically healthy way. Is the secret twist that they all have PTSD from some unmentioned trauma before the book started? It's the only possible explanation.

    • Great googly-moogly. I just--You know, if you have mental issues and you get help, I am here for you. Because if you were like this girl Karen, and you were jumping and screaming because there was snow in your boots, or because the phone rang, or your brother made fun of you eating Pop Tarts, that must be a really difficult way to live. I would think that the assistance of your choice would make life bearable; take the edge off everything that was setting you off, especially if you were set off [...]

    • I recently found a pile of old R.L. Stine books at my mom's place. Not the Goosebumps stuff, but some of his YA books for high schoolers. I decided to read them partly out of curiosity, and partly because I needed something low-stress during a busy couple of months, and found myself enjoying them more than I expected. From this handful of books, I can see why Stine was such a big deal. The writing is short and sharp. Lots of short sentences, lots of short paragraphs. Nothing fancy, but propulsiv [...]

    • I love how awful this is. It exploits the idea of hysteria and "boy-crazy" in teen girls, combining it with misdirection and tension. But it's almost a parody when read against today's society. Oh, Stine- I love you.

    • Before I begin, can I just ask how Micah can complain in a velvety voice? Spent a good five minutes trying to imagine that one! Reminds me of: the movie Pillow Talk with Doris Day."It was probably just a practical joke" moment: (view spoiler)[Karen should have thought this more often. What with that brother and cousin of hers we must have had a world record of disappointing cliff hanger chapter endings. The best was the "it isn't a joke" kitchen knife dream. Though I think Ethan said it a few ti [...]

    • I'm a huge fan of R.L. Stine. I like his style of writing and his work is really good (especially his Fear Street series). But there are some books where he isn't at his best. This is kind of one of them.Karen's a teenage girl who suspects her boyfriend Ethan is cheating on her with a girl from school named Wendy. Soon after, Karen starts getting threatening phone calls from a person who claims they want to kill herexcept they aren't, because it's revealed later on that Karen was making up the c [...]

    • I'm not ragey anymore.but I still have that feeling of, not disappointment, but disillusionment.Call Waiting is a masterful piece of exaggeration—the cringey, please stop using exclamation points type of piece.Honestly, I don't know which to hate moree writing, the plot, or the characters. From Karen, our MC, to Ethan, the love interest. I didn't realize it until I started reading Stine's work again, in my adult years, how each "suspenseful" chapter endings were all this like shocking ending o [...]

    • I found a few of my old, young adult books while cleaning, so I'm going to give them a bash. It's quite a difference reading books which are so short, and with such massive text size! R.L. Stine was one of my favourites while growing up, first Goosebumps, then Point Horror as I 'matured'. It was interesting to read this one from an adult's perspective, but I was sad to discover I didn't enjoy it quite as much as I was expecting!To begin with, the entire story was incredibly predictable. I worked [...]

    • In the begining karen was normal but it all started with karen going out with ethan. Her and her friend went to ethans house to see if he was lying to her about canceling a date with her. She thought that he had canceled the date because he was cheating on her with wendy. She and her friend Micah where still in the car outside his house they finally saw him come home. She was relieved that he didn't cheat on her. When they saw him get in the house she got out of the car and got a wiper out of th [...]

    • Okay. This book was almost complete trash. I haven't read a Fear Street title since I was a kid, and I don't know why in the world I enjoyed these books. Basically Karen is getting "mysterious phone calls" where someone is threatening to kill her and needs her boyfriend , Ethan, to be at her side at all times to "protect" her. Karen is a complete psycho. She has anger issues, mumbles to herself constantly, is super clingy one point she says (repeatedly) that she's going to kill a girl because sh [...]

    • I like to email my friends whole chapters. We had a Fear Street reading group in college (and by that I mean - everyone jump on my bed while Danielle leaves on the desk light and narrates while Bobby screams at every scene because he is drunkitydrunk and I secretly revel in the fact that I brought Fear Street back from my past) and I can't seem to let that Fear Street book club go. Viva R.L. Stine. If you want me to forward you the emails, just let me know. I use fancy red and black font.

    • I am basing my stars off of what I vaguely remember about it. I remember, I think in the 5th grade reading this and thinking how grown up it was compared to R.L. Stine's main series Goosebumps. lol I was updating my digital library and stumbled across a book that made me suddenly remember this one.

    • Call Waiting Lust, desire, and loyalty all sound like normal things in someone’s life, but sometimes ends in destruction. The book Call Waiting by R.L. Stine involves all three of those characteristics and many more. This mystery has parts based off of reality that will truly get in your head. I give this book a three out of five star rating. This book has an amazing mystery that makes the main character believe she’s in danger. Stine also added many suspects to extend the story and gets you [...]

    • I used to be a HUGE fan of R.L. Stine Point Horror novels. I searched high and low for any and all of them back in the day, and this was quite a find. I was a fan of the Halloween Night duology, so I figured this would be more than up to snuff. Wrong, just wrong. The main character Karen is a needy girlfriend, who doesn't trust her boyfriend Ethan so much so, that the opening scene is literally Karen and her friend parked outside his house, stalking him to make sure he wasn't lying about having [...]

    • This definitely did not stand the test of time and maturity. How the heck did RL Stine manage to get paid for these. Even ignoring the rampant sexism, the writing is just terrible. He really had a thing for redheads, and all the boys had rust colored hair. We were told at every opportunity that Jake had a hoarse voice. Nostalgia is probably the only reason I gave it a 2.

    • I remembered the title and cover of this book, but not much else - probably because this was pretty bad. Karen is absolutely psychotic, and being in her head was not fun. The ending is also completely unsatisfying, and this was just a weird book all in all.

    • You know, I don't even know what to say about this. I remember when it came out, it looked really exciting, but I never got a copy until I was about 16. I remember I borrowed it from friends at least twice. Then I picked up a 3-in-1 collection containing it in a second-hand store. I read it a handful of times since then.And you know what? I did not remember a darn thing about the book. Not the plot, not the characters' names, not even a single powerful scene like R.L. Stine is famous for includi [...]

    • I just finished this book this morning in only a few hours! Loved it! I felt like I was reading an early version of Pretty Little Liars (though I know this came first). But to give you an idea of how it reads, there are many different factors, characters, motives that come into play to create a wonderfully weaved plot.I really liked this because of all the twists and turns. I didn't see pretty much any of them coming. Stine did a wonderful job of creating a basket case MC who was super unreliabl [...]

    • Work leaves me little time to read for Halloween, so I randomly picked up a short Stine story from the school library.Beginning with Karen the supposed victim as the stalker watching her boyfriend, the book successfully kept me hanging and guessing till the end. Although, this being a quick read, the suspense didn't last long in real time, and hopefully will not bring me nightmares on Halloween night.It wasn't nearly as thrilling as I had thought it would be, but there were moments when I hesita [...]

    • Who do you trust when you are a teenager in love? Then your boyfriend is seen talking to another girl, he asks to start seeing other people, the time he spends with you is less and less and all the while those voices in your head drive you to act. In an attempt to gain the love of the boyfriend a plan of rescue is hatched and spooky calls start to happen while you are on the phone with him and he dashes to your side every time. The trouble begins when REAL spooky calls starts to take place, who [...]

    • I liked the book but it was very predictable. Whenever Ethan called and turned down a date or something well talking to Karen, she said "hold on I have a call waiting" and then she would be crying because of a scary voice. Another key clue that the first set of phones were fake was that it never told exactly what it said you would only read Karen get back on the line with Ethan and say she heard a horrible voice. The second set of phone calls were obviously real because you heard the voice say t [...]

    • 46%I remember reading this book when I was in middle school/ high school and I loved it. Now thoughKaren was so insecure and overly jealous! It made her so annoying. She would literally jump to the worst conclusion with one simple sentence. When someone says, "have to pick up extra night shift. Gotta cancel our date" doesn't mean, "I canceled our date to be with someone else. I'll probably break up with you too." And that endingdisappointing is too nice of word. The ending was total bullshit.

    • this book is one of my favorite books that r.line has written. you can sort of connect it to the baysitter part 1 because both charatcers get creepy phone calls but its a lot more different. the main character isnt being stalked on a baysitting job but at her home. i suggest that if you read this book you need to pay very close attention beacuse the ending will shock you. it ends up becoming an ending that you never saw coming!!!!!

    • This book is about a girl named Karen who's been getting phone calls that were threatning to kill her. I think it was a pretty frightning and surprising book. I liked how there was a surprising ending at the end. But also there were some parts when the story was going too slow so that I skiped some parts. I also liked how there were a lot of action and confusion between Karen and her friends. I recommend this book to people who like horror stories and mysteries too.

    • I remember loving this book when I read it. I've read it quite a few times and I still love it.I honestly NEVER expected the killer. But, of course, I was still young back then and hadn't done much reading. I love R.L. Stine, honestly, and I've been collecting Goosebumps for over fifteen years. He has never disappointed me.

    • It was not the best of R.L Stines books, that's for sure. But it was hilarious when you get to the end. It was so over dramatic, and cheesy, to the point that it was hilarious. R.L Stine is one of my favorite authors, so when I say this book kind of suck, I say it with love. It was just too silly.
