    One thought on “The Phantom”

    1. What a waste of paper. Barbara Steiner has written some quality books, and some not so quality books, The Phantom is one of the poorly written ones. It was bad from the first word to the last. Amelia spends much of the story either trying to console her friend Jilly, or getting mad at Jilly for being unable to move past her former boyfriend's death. Things kick off in September, Reggie Westlake died 10 months prior. Jilly HAD apparently managed to move past his death until the first day of schoo [...]

    2. After a first chapter where the dead quarter back mysteriously appears at a pep rally this goes from teen drama to horror movie and back again. All the while it fails to build the suspense and tension needed for this to be scary. I seem to remember hating this in the 90's and age hasn't improved it.

    3. The Phantom wasn't all that great, to say the least. I didn't have overly high expectations to begin with, but it was so predictable and generic that I just found it boring.

    4. This has to be one of the worst Point Horror books I've read. Most Point Horrors leave a cliffhanger at the end of the chapter to get you to keep reading. This barely had any so I had no incentive to keep reading. I'm also not very good at spotting who is going to be the bad guy in these books but within the first few chapters I knew exactly who it was so most of the book was just spent waiting for the inevitable.

    5. Lol wow, so many dislike this book! I do not remember how bad the writing was but i remember the story well. I read this book in elementary. But i gave it a 5 because i remember loving it and thinking of it made me smile. Seeing this is actually making me want to read it again. Maybe like watching a really old movie ill realize how terrible it truly was lol.

    6. Phantom, a book which use to belong to my sister now rests on my bookshelf. I diffidently didn't expect the ending when I read it. It's a good horror book. Not too scary, but not-how do i put this- not something I'd read to a little child.

    7. Not really sure what was going on in this book, but somehow I still sort of enjoyed it. 2 stars may be a bit harsh, but I just wish that I could have understood what was happenning!

    8. Early stuff written for YA and middle grade is really simplistic so while this is an interesting story, it's unfortunately a product of the time it was written.
