    Jack is frustrated by Wilson s constant competitive nature and always been outshone by him, especially when Mia is about.So when Jack discovers a book in an old abandoned house called Flying Lessons, he instantly thinks this would be a perfect way to impress Mia.Quite different to most of the Goosebumps books, withof a fantasy element has quite a good message at heart.As Jack will learn that it s better to be himself than constantly trying to impress.

    This book is a hot mess Jack Johnson is a 12 year old who is in a pissing contest with another 12 year old named Wilson Schlame I don t get it I thought testosterone poisoning set in a little later than this Maybe I was wrong The boys compete with each other in EVERYTHING and Wilson always wins He s a complete asshole who has to one up Jack on everything Jack attempts to do.What s the root of all this A cute girl, of course Her name is Mia The boys make complete idiots out of themselves This book is a hot mess Jack Johnson is a 12 year old who is in a pissing contest with another 12 year old named Wilson Schlame I don t get it I thought testosterone poisoning set in a little later than this Maybe I was wrong The boys compete with each other in EVERYTHING and Wilson always wins He s a complete asshole who has to one up Jack on everything Jack attempts to do.What s the root of all this A cute girl, of course Her name is Mia The boys make complete idiots out of themselves vying for her attention If I were her, I d be really fed up and tell both of them to scram However, she seems to find Wilson s assholery charming and just kind of ignores the facts like a both boys act like complete cavemen around her and b Wilson is a complete asshole who stomps on Jack s accomplishments at every opportunity.So I suppose you want me to get around to talking about the flying Okay, Jack flees Mia s birthday party because he can t stand Wilson acting like a total asshole nonstop for four hours He for some reason hides out in an old abandoned house where he finds an admittedly very cool sounding book titled FLYING LESSONS Instead of being about airplanes, like Jack initially assumed, it is illustrated with tons of pictures of people in old fashioned clothes flying through the air.Jack takes the book home and follows the instructions to be able to fly It involves a lot of hopping and making a crazy dough mixture with a secret ingredient.Long story short, it works And that s when things go badThe narrative stream in this book is very poor Events are happening, it s a big mish mash, and it doesn t really make much sense, even for a Goosebumps book Another problem is Wilson is just such a dick Jeez Louise, what is with Stine and creating kids who are little terrors I really don t expect three dimensional characterization in a Goosebumps book, but Wilson was grating on my nerves I sympathized with Jack for wanting to beat the kid at something anything and wipe that annoying smirk off his face.Until page 80 when Jack starts acting like a jerk, refusing to teach Mia how to fly because he s a selfish person Ugh That made me so mad And then when he decides he IS going to teach her how to fly, it s all because he wants her to swoon all over him and be the big man Ugh So gross I hate all this macho shit.Tl dr Poor plot, poor execution, terrible characters The ending was pretty good, though

    This book is enjoyable R.L Stine s way of storytelling is amazing But it isn t really the scary kind of Goosebumps everyone knows Not even the part where the main character was in a mysterious house was giving me chills This book could easily be a debut of a new series if you cross the Goosebumps title off But still, this book is great 5 5 And also, the ending is a happy ending, unlike most other Goosebumps.

    The book is about commpition is and how some one can be so mean just to win I like this book because it has so much detail in the book and a lot of charters I n the setting also feels like its actually in real life I recommend this book to 6 grader because of the book charters are different and have this good side and a mean side so a 6 grade will read this fun book and know what to do.

    Whoa Goosebumps huh I started collecting these upon chancing one at a book sale when we went home to my dad s hometown for the holidays And ever since, I got the impulse to just collect em all I have over 34 books of the original series and I recently found this one Right How I learned to fly This story story is actually quite different in a way with the other Goosebumps books One, flying is not scary at all spoiler ahead unless Jack somehow transformed into a real bird from gulping th Whoa Goosebumps huh I started collecting these upon chancing one at a book sale when we went home to my dad s hometown for the holidays And ever since, I got the impulse to just collect em all I have over 34 books of the original series and I recently found this one Right How I learned to fly This story story is actually quite different in a way with the other Goosebumps books One, flying is not scary at all spoiler ahead unless Jack somehow transformed into a real bird from gulping the secret recipe which did not happen, weird and two, there were no twist endings This actually peculiar and uncharacteristic of Stine since he never fails to manipulate horror symbols and come up with a mystery attached to every thing The house where Jack got the book, the freakish rats who acted insane and carnivorous, and the twist ending that I was expecting All of these were opportunities for Stine to unleash his trademark I got ya good scares But surprisingly, this book did not possess those elements but instead gives you a lesson That Jack is wacko for not wanting fame and autographs Kidding It was a fun read nevertheless

    Source I own this book Cost Free Title How I Learned to Fly Series Goosebumps 52 Author RL Stine Overall Rating 2 starsI have mixed feelings about it On one hand, it was good, but it wasn t really Goosebumps material I wanted to be scared, not mildly amused I don t think I ever read this one as a kid, but reading it now as an adult, I m not really a fan to be honest It was imaginative sure, but not spooky enough for my liking.
