    1 thought on “Help Wanted

    1. Rating: 4 of 5Help Wanted was among the many Point Horror books I read in the early 90s, between the ages of 12 to 15. In those days, when I wasn't buried in a Stephen King novel, nine times out of ten I was reading L.J. Smith, R.L. Stine, Christopher Pike, Caroline B. Cooney, or Richie Tankersley Cusick. Their novels always thrilled and entertained, and yes, there was a healthy dose of jumps and creepies.Nowadays, I'd recommend the Point Horror books for younger 12- to 15-year-olds, who want to [...]

    2. I would have taken the blurb from like I normally do, but it was just outright wrong. So I got it directly from the source WANTED is a book that’s halfway to being the ridiculous cheese of RL Stine, but it’s also half-grounded in something resembling reality. Robin appears to be a rather level-headed, somewhat well-rounded, character that comes off as genuine and like a real human being. So does her friend Walt. Not a whole lot of drama or hyperbole going on with either of them, all things [...]

    3. Point Horrors are always good for a quick burner to top up the yearly Reading Challenge. Help Wanted does embody the definition of a good point horror, but I always finish them thinking they'd be better as a screen play, so as to end up with the inevitable Netflix Original seriesis aside I enjoyed the story, and the characters had their macabre based personalities ranging from demented janitors to high school jocks. Wouldn't mind the library and crackling fireplace myself.d up to 4 stars on this [...]

    4. I really don't think that I gel with Richie's writing, I feel there wasn't really anything happening throughout this story I wasn't kept on the edge of my seat like I want with these books. Ihave some more of her books so not going to write off Richie's books yet.

    5. I liked this book a lot. It's quite different to the other Cusick books I've read - for one thing, Robin's mother isn't entirely absent, although we don't see her much - and there's more of a "normal" background than in books like Trick or Treat or Teacher's Pet. It is still a good read, though, with that creepy gothic feeling that Ms Cusick does so very well.Robin, reserved and introverted class brain, applies for a job cataloguing books in a personal library. She's a little hesitant, because t [...]

    6. I had to add the cover of the copy I had and the new cover on amazon. Robin dreams of spending her vacation with her friends but the only way that is going to happen is if she can raise the money for the trip. For a smart high school senior that shouldn't be too hard, all she has to do is find an after school job. As luck would have it the perfect job just happens to land in her lap taking inventory of old books for an eccentric old man. However, something is looming in the shadows, the new girl [...]

    7. Yesterday something reminded me of a moment in Help Wanted, so when I woke up this morning I had the urge to give it a re-read. It's by far one of my favourite Point Horror books and among one of the first I've ever read. It never gets old, despite me knowing exactly what's going to happen and when. There was one thing different about this re-read though, I realised how annoying the main character, Robin, really is. I don't know, maybe it's just her naivety, but I couldn't help yelling at her th [...]

    8. I keep saying this, but I am just so thrilled that my library has a bunch of these teen horror classics available to check out as e-books, since they purged all the hard copies. (Now, if only they would get e-books from Fear Street, Terror Academy and Nightmare Hall!)I remembered the cover of this book vividly, but the actual story itself not so much. I still think Richie Tankersley Cusick is the most talented writer from this genre, and I really enjoyed reading this. I didn't remember anything [...]

    9. The only thing that kept me going with this one was the mystery of who did it. I actually finished this a few weeks ago and sadly already I forget a lot of what happened. I do remember that I didn't like the character interactions because they felt to forced or out of place and I was surprised at the ending. All in all I don't think this was her best work, I think so far this is the one that I have enjoyed the least.

    10. This is my favourite Point Horror book. Robin Bailey takes a part-time job working for Herk Swanson, an old man with plenty of family secrets. His grandson Parker is the light of his life and the misery of Robin's. Parker's waif-like stepsister Claudia is fragile and Robin feels sorry for her. But Robin should maybe be a little bit more careful when deciding who to trust.

    11. I found it very enjoyable, it even gave me some scares which I found fantastic. The novel was a thrilling and captivating tale that kept me refraining from putting it down, it not only has all the good making of a proper scare but also an ending that leaves you wanting more and is somewhat surprising to the tale. I would absolutely recommend it for some scares but also a great twist.

    12. Huge fan of Richie Tankersley Cusick. This book is creative and despite how I am someone who is usually quick to solve the mysteries, this book kept me guessing until the very end. The book was also paced really well and the pace really picks up toward the end.

    13. This was quite good, and I loved the ending, just enough of a twist in the plot to keep me on my toes :-)

    14. Totally wasn't expecting Claudia and Skaggs to be behind of it all Crazy twist! pretty good book, although my romantic side wants to know whether Robin chose Walt or Parker?

    15. Well written book, ending was very fast paced and I think could have used at least another chapter to wrap things up. Nice quick read.

    16. Such a brilliant crazy family! The only problem I have is the romantic interests! I need the romance as well as the horror!! But still awesome.

    17. first ebook reading on my new e-reader ! Thanks Ms_prue:) reading on the bus however @ 100 ish pages its not gonna take long

    18. This book starts off with a cliche plot,but it turns into something creative. I will say the twist at the end made no sense.
