    1. I know this book because my sixth grade teacher read it to us, and I remember falling in love with the noir lite, quasi sci fi tone of the story I was reunited with this long out of print book after years of looking for an affordable copy, only to have an internet query discovered by someone closely associated with the author, who was kind enough to send me a replica of the first printing After 30 years, did this book hold up for me Mostly The language and dialog are certainly dated, but it read [...]

    2. My fifth grade teacher read this book to our class and I was utterly engrossed Flashes of the story stayed with me, and when I saw her again a decade later I made sure to get the title so that I could track it down again.

    3. In fourth grade, in Kent, WA, my teacher read us this book and I just loved it I want to re read it someday just to recall what it was all about.

    4. I read this in about 4th grade LOVED it then One of the first books to really turn me on to reading.

    5. I think I was seven or eight when I read this it may be the first SF novel I read The five stars is for how this book affected my young self.

    6. When Uncle Fred said Welcome to Grisly Manor, he was joking That was yesterday.Believe me, tonight it s no joke Teenager Steve Forrester arrives to spend the summer with his aunt and uncle at their rural motel, expecting a slow, tedious vacation All of that changes, however, when on his first day running the desk by himself, a strange overdressed man checks in Steve takes a towel to the man s room and discovers that the man s skin is bright blue, and witnesses him draining energy from a nearby l [...]

    7. This review will contain spoilers, since my appreciation for it lies in the ending itself I found this book in my attic, and since it looked like a quick read, I decided to add it to my list of books to read I was not disappointed The thing about this book is that it s a mystery that morphs into a bit of a thriller before going back to the mystery and explaining everything, and in a very nice way, I must say The use of the journal the blue man kept to explain things may seem rushed or not well t [...]

    8. I first read this book in Jr high and was completely blown away I guess this was the first book, other than say the Tom Swift, Jr and Hardy Boys novels, aimed at teens that I read and could identify with Possibly because the lead character was also named Steve.Very happy living with his parents in New York City, Steve is not thrilled when his parents decide to send him off to spend the summer with his aunt uncle They run a small hotel in a rural area, and he finds himself pretty bored When a rat [...]

    9. Yeah i really liked this book in 5th grade, dont remember it much but i liked it then If i ever get my hands on a copy i will reread it as i have just learned it was a four part series That is a fact i never knew, and it really blew my mind

    10. My aunt recommended it and after looking all over on line I was able to buy a used copy Every review I have read gives this a five star I am eager to get it here and read it This was a weird, quirky book but an easy, engaging fast read Any 12 year old boy would love this.

    11. I also remember reading this as a child don t remember the plot But remember that it was memorable and I remember the name of the book.
