A book that reads like a video game

Advantages: Perfect book for action loving boys
Disadvantages: Not a great story from an adult perspective, high levels of gore and violence.

Does anyone remember the Old 'Give Yourself Goosebumps' books where you chose the ending? The new I horror series is something like those books, but quite a bit more violent. Every few pages you will be given a set of tow or three choices - each of which ...

A very different version of Snow White..

That was the best Big Zing ever!

Advantages: well made, lots of buttons to press, looks nice and colourful
Disadvantages: book is too big, story is too long.
