    Out of all the Point Horrors that I’ve re-read, this is the one that I could instantly recall. Cassie and her friends Eddie, Scott and Winks decided to get some extra practice in before their driving test by taking Eddies family car out for a ride. But tragedy strikes as the hit a man during the course of the evening. I can vividly recall all the pranks the group play on each other right at the beginning of the book, it instantly reveals the group dynamics. Not the most original plot but I liked how Out of all the Point Horrors that I’ve re-read, this is the one that I could instantly recall.

Not the most original plot but I liked how Stine’s raised the tension as the group were convinced they were going to be caught after living with the guilt of what happened that night. One of he’s better entries in the series.

    These characters are terrible. They have the worst sense of humor ever in the history of mankind.

Found one of his non-FS books (The Babysitter) for free at one of the local libraries a few weeks back (many, many years after being a sixth grader) and decided to take it home to see what I'd think of his work as an adult. It was awful. Decided to try this one, since I found it really cheap at Goodwill, to see if I'd think the same about this one. I did.

It was awful. Decided to try this one, since I found it really cheap at Goodwill, to see if I'd think the same about this one. I did. This isn't me ragging on young adult and children's novels because I'm oh-so-mature now; I've read and reread a few books for younger readers since joining Goodreads a year ago, and a number of them were still fantastic reading for someone of any age. Compared to them, neither of Stine's books are even worth mentioning. Okay, I'm being too hard on what is essentially a PG-rated slasher flick in book form. However, I'm not a difficult person to keep entertained; even a fairly crappy book I'd likely give at least two stars to if it did something to amuse me. Hit and Run just failed on all accounts, however. The story was far too predictable. (So was The Babysitter, for that matter.) As soon as Eddie is running over the man, you already know exactly what had happened and who was behind it all. Let's see; kid who is constantly bullied by people at school, including his three closest friends, who has a cousin who works at the city morgue and is enough of a dick and a jokester and lacks any respect for the dead that he'd let a kid take a dead person's eyeball home to play cruel pranks on people with? Said bullied kid is nearly traumatized the first time they all decide to take one of their parent's cars out without permission to practice driving...decides that they should all do it again not too long after? Yeah, he's planning something. He's ready to snap. The "victim" itself? "The surprisingly quiet thud of impact. The man's expression didn't change." Why isn't his expression changing? Oh, probably because he's already dead. I mean, Eddie has this asshole cousin who conveniently works at a morgue, right? None of these characters are very sympathetic or even interesting, besides maybe Eddie. A bunch of self-centered brats who don't seem to learn from anything that happens? There were also a number of things about Stine's writing that just aggravated me here and there. Seriously, how many times can you write "character cracked" or "character said sarcastically" in one, extremely short book like this? Can't they do anything besides crack jokes and be sarcastic? Sure, they're teenagers and all, but it just seems like lazy writing. Not to mention that most of what they say, jokingly or sarcastically, is all pretty "ho-hum". Another thing that irrationally annoys me: why does everyone get their outfits described at times? It's not like it happens every single time you'd think there'd be a costume change, or even very often at all. Even then, the adding of a description of the outfit just feels...random. Like, "so? What of it? Does that have any importance whatsoever to the current scene?" Clothes paragraphs don't always feel like unnecessary padding for some writers, but they just don't add anything to this book. I mean, at least when they described outfits in like, The Baby-sitters Club, it was entertaining to see what sort of atrocity Claudia would come up with each book, but here it's all just very "meh." Finally, I'm tired as hell of the heroine about to be killed by the perpetrator behind all the crimes, only to be saved at the very last minute by her twu-wuv (always male, of course), who always magically knows that she's in danger, exactly where she is, and always gets there in the nick of time. This isn't something directed personally at Stine; it plagues a great deal of suspense/thrillers for both young adults AND adults, yes, even by a number of authors that I otherwise enjoy. Sure, this was written in the 90s, but it was an already tiresome trope back then. All that said, I'm pretty likely to still pick up more Stine books if I find them used/free somewhere, particularly if I can actually find any Fear Street. No, really, I LOVED them when I was younger; I want to see if they're any better than his non-series books, or if these two books were just especially bad.

    I think perhaps R.L. Stine is just for the sixth-grader me. I used to really like his "Goosebumps" books and I remember having my jaw hanging in awe because of the wonderful twists and turns that he has at the end of his books. Now that I'm almost twenty, the only thing I can feel while reading is nostalgia--two fists of old memories ramming themselves against my gut. Only that. The old awe and fear were not present anymore. Even the twist at the end didn't surprise me in the least. "Hit and Run I think perhaps R.L. Stine is just for the sixth-grader me.

They tried to keep the crime a secret, but it seems that they can't keep it for that long. This book is just okay. I'm pretty sure that if the nine-year-old me will read this, I'll really like it.

It's pretty interesting how they're getting phonecalls from a man who is supposed to be dead and the most least likely person was the one playing the joke.I liked the book because I didn't know if something was really happening or if someone was trying to scare them.

    I view Stine as King's little brother. I was an avid Goosebump and point horror reader growing up and it helped me fall in love with reading and graduating to King, Koontz and anything else in the horror, thriller and Sci-Fi section I would eventually get my hands on. I havent saved all my goosebumps however I have saved my point horror and every once in a while go back to them if I want to read a quick YA horror in one sitting. This book was a very fun read. Very Nostalgic for me and definitely I view Stine as King's little brother.

They harass others and themselves without remorse and take it too far to boot. He successfully inspires antipathy for his protagonists, with the possible exception of Eddie, who seems to have the unfortunate luck to fall into this group of vipers and think they're his friends because they don't bite him as often as they could. By the end it's hard not to root for him. (The who-dunnit aspect is fairly obvious this time, so even I could guess it. This doesn't much detract from enjoyment though. It's satisfying to see these characters get a taste of their own medicine.) You can tell the teens don't feel much remorse. In terms of believability, the plot is a mess. The idea this coroner guy could haul a corpse around town without getting caught is insane, and the fact these kids see nothing too objectionable about that, or popping out decedents' eyeballs, drives home what sociopaths we're dealing with. Eddie may be crazy, but at least he has a soul, with feelings to be hurt. I like that he wasn't locked up forever at the end, merely committed to professional help. His friends and his cousin need correction more.

One day they were driving when Winks pulled a prank. It made Eddie furious but the next day Eddie decided to take his parents car and drive again. This is when the incident happened. This book was interesting and intriguing . It started off with a prank and really showed who Scott, WInks and Eddie are like. It also showed a little bit of Cassie. It also gives the viewpoint mainly from Cassie and what she is thinking. They all were learning driving and I could connect to that as I'm starting to do that myself. With this learning how to drive they had an incident that really had to adjust to the situation. The guilt really starts to get to them as they were worried the public would find out. To try and calm it down they call Eddie's , cousin Jerry who works at the morgue. This just makes them worry more though as it countines on.

    Not too bad. I think it’s obvious who’s behind the events that occur. I had my suspicions before the hit and run happened. None of this would have happened if they had done the right thing in the first place and called the police.

    Four young teenagers were just practicing for their driving test when something terrible happened. Even though the four teenagers did not have a license they took their parents car out for a practice run. They took turns driving, when it was Eddie's turn he hopped into the seat and started driving. It started off going well but then he suddenly hit a man on the highway. They all got out of the car and took his cubs hat off and found who the man was. The man the kids' hit name was Brandt Tinkers.

Then, Winks(Bruce) gets hit by a car just like how they hit Brandt Tinkers. Was this a coincidence or was this on purpose?

Kidding 😅 But they do kill someone 😬 After the accident, they start receiving creepy notes and one of them even gets hit with a car, and omg could it be the guy they killed?? 😲 Me and this book, we started off not great. There were pranks everywhere. SO many pranks... I just did not like 😒 But these pranks were basically only pulled on one poor character. Let me rewind, these four friends have been besties since forever. We got Winks, the annoying prankster, Scott, the hot jock/representative of the Student Government, Eddie, the quiet one who is always teased and the center of the pranks, and then Cassie, the only girl in the group. So yeah, I hated how Eddie was picked on! Scott just went along with whatever Winks did, and Cassie kinda tried to get them to stop... but not hard enough. And then she also laughed at the poor guy. Ugh! It was awful! Just pranks everywhere at the expense of Eddie and I was so done. Especially when I read this: “There’s one kid like that in every class,” Winks said. “One kid everyone liked to pound on. Eddie just happens to be that kid. He’s used to it.” “You think so?” Cassie asked. Fucking NO Cassie! God! What’s wrong with you? 😠 (view spoiler)[So I was not surprised at all when we found out that all the bad stuff that was happening was being done by Eddie. I knew it was him from the start. The way they treated the poor kid? He clearly did not like it, but they did it anyway. So yeah, it was glaringly obvious! The poor guy. I can’t say his asshole friends didn’t deserve it, if I’m honest. Winks in particular was awful! (hide spoiler)] The characters were just no good. The only thing I liked was the blooming relationship between Cassie and Scott. I thought they were really cute... you know, when they weren’t being completely awful to Eddie. The book wasn’t great, but I didn’t have an awful time reading it either 🤷‍♀️ I don’t know, I just like the feel of these books. And some parts did make me laugh... non-prank parts, mind you. Lol.

I think that this book is a good page-turner because it keeps you guessing what is next literally! I especially like mystery/horror stories that aren’t that much horror but more of a mystery. A good book is what this is and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a little mystery in their life. Also if you would like to find a certain author to follow I pretty sure everyone might have heard of R.L. Stine. The story starts out with four friends on a dirt road to nowhere and the come up on a hill and don’t see the man standing there. They hit the man and then run because they saw the guy roll into the ditch. A few days later one of their friends is injured in a hit and run, leaving them to wonder about the body. By now the body is in the morgue (found by the side of the road), so they go to look at the body and when they get to the morgue the body that was found is gone! The three go home and act like nothing happened but later that week, one of them goes missing. With two left they wonder about each other and the turnout is horrific! People that would not like this book might be people that do not necessarily like mystery books and/or people that do not get a kick out of page-turners. The reason I say that is because it is not really a bad book but also not a very good book but more right in the middle. This book is a great book from my perspective, but not enough up there to compete with other books. Many would say that this book is ok and I would agree with them in some ways more than others.

There was always a part in the book where if you thought about putting the book down it was hard. A part that was exciting was at the end when they start to tell you who were playing tricks on them. I like that all of the characters in the book have TOTALLY different personalities but they are best friends. When they all wanted to listen to music but not the same thing. I really like this book. The strength of the book was how the author kept a feeling of suspense at the end of every chapter. I don’t think the book had any weaknesses. I would recommend this book to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders, because it’s on a middle school level. This book is really fun I want to read it again.

What mortified me was the books ability to play off and wrap up Eddie’s mental disorder in less than five pages, and that the corpse of a real human being is used as a comedic gag, in particularly on the very last page of the book. I know I’m reading too deep into this children’s thriller novel from 1992, but these types of events that happens in these older novels just shock me in a sense that I doubt an author would write this way today. It was fun, campy, dumb, funny at parts, and a very short read. I would reread it for fun in the future, mostly for the drama of the average high schooler in the 1990s.

    Hit and Run by R.L.Stine is a Point Fiction novel published in 1992 that follows Eddie, Scott, Winks and Cassie as they find themselves the perpetrators of a hit and run accident. I gave it 2 stars because while I always enjoy Stine’s work, he follows a simple formula that gets tiring after a while; murder or accident, who did it, almost found the suspect, and a “twist” that’s usually pretty cheap.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I enjoyed reading this book. I thought the plot of the story was really good. The main conflict is Eddie and his friends go out driving, and Eddie hits a person, then trying to figure out how they’re receiving messages from that dead person. There was a big twist to it, that I didn't expect. Turns out Eddie was playing a horrible trick on his friends. This book was a page turner all the way through for me. When I figured out Eddie was behind it I was extremely surprised, because it’s not I thoug I enjoyed reading this book. I thought the plot of the story was really good.

    This book was rubbish. I'm not expecting masterpieces as I read my way through the Point Horror series, but I expected a bit more from R. L. Stine. The story was boring (they were forever driving!) as were the characters. I'm glad that I'm finished with it! This book was rubbish.

    Very bland and forgettable and just not interesting to me. I’d call this an I Know What You Did Last Summer rip-off only this came out far before the movie did. But it’s still super cliché. It took me longer to get through then the usual point horror book because of how dull it was. Next.

    I absolutely adored R.L. Stine's Point Horror books as a kid, but reading them now I am becoming very aware of how drastically they vary in quality. Some have been very good ( The Girlfriend , The Baby-Sitter II , The Hitchhiker ), some have been okay ( The Snowman , The Boyfriend ) and some have been pretty poor ( The Baby-Sitter , Beach Party ). Unfortunately, Hit and Run falls into the pretty poor category. I didn't mind Cassie as the protagonist, but her three friends are fa I absolutely adored R.L.

Some have been very good ( The Girlfriend , The Baby-Sitter II , The Hitchhiker ), some have been okay ( The Snowman , The Boyfriend ) and some have been pretty poor ( The Baby-Sitter , Beach Party ). Unfortunately, Hit and Run falls into the pretty poor category. I didn't mind Cassie as the protagonist, but her three friends are fairly underdeveloped and pretty much reduced to caricatures. This results in the romance angle feeling forced and Cassie's motivations and justifications for pursuing her boy of choice don't really add up. The plot is fairly typical for a Point Horror, falling back on familiar tropes like mysterious notes and prank phone calls. The biggest problem I have with this book is that it's all so obvious. I've mentioned before that I'm not typically good at predicting the big climactic reveals in these books, but the mystery in Hit and Run is so blatantly sign posted throughout that the climax ends up being incredibly underwhelming. There is also one aspect to this book that just does not hold up to scrutiny and makes absolutely no sense. Although their quality varies drastically, Stine does at least usually write his Point Horror books in a compelling way, with his ridiculous chapter cliffhangers keeping me glued to the book and reading onwards. That was all sadly absent in Hit and Run - it feels like Stine is writing on autopilot. 1.5/5 Point Horror Ranked 1) The Girlfriend - 4/5 2) Trick or Treat - 3.5/5 3) Fatal Secrets - 3.5/5 4) Teacher's Pet - 3.5/5 5) The Baby-Sitter II - 3.5/5 6) The Cheerleader - 3.5/5 7) The Hitchhiker - 3.5/5 8) April Fools - 3.5/5 9) My Secret Admirer - 3.5/5 10) The Lifeguard - 3.5/5 11) Freeze Tag - 3/5 12) Thirteen Tales of Horror - 3/5 13) The Accident - 3/5 14) Funhouse - 3/5 15) The Invitation - 2.5/5 16) The Train - 2.5/5 17) The Waitress - 2.5/5 18) The Snowman - 2.5/5 19) The Mall - 2.5/5 20) The Boyfriend - 2/5 21) Mother's Helper - 2/5 22) The Baby-Sitter - 1.5/5 23) Hit and Run - 1.5/5 24) The Return of the Vampire - 1/5 25) Beach Party - 1/5
