If you haven’t yet read any of the books in R. L. Stine’s Goosebumps series, you have a lot of catching up to do! The Werewolf Of Fever Swamp is the 14th book in the famously frightening series!


We really, really loved this book because whether you like to read about werewolves, vampires, ghosts or mummies, or you just love a good mystery, you’ll really enjoy reading this novel. The book tells the story of Grady, a boy whose family moves near a swamp in Florida so his dad, a scientist, can study swamp deer. When Grady meets Will the two boys hit it off immediately – they both have adventurous personalities and love to explore.


When Grady and Will decide to check out the swamp they’re unaware that someone actually lives there – a deranged hermit who hates pesky visitors trespassing on his property. After they’re chased out of the swamp Grady hears howling coming from the swamp and something (or someone) scratching at his door. That’s when he learns about the legend of the surrounding woods – a werewolf is said to live in the swamp as well. Now it’s up to Grady to uncover the mystery of the swamp.


The Werewolf Of Fever Swamp Rating: 5

I believe that it depends on the kind of person and what their crime is. I would feel a lot safer if a person who was a serial killer wasn't around anymore. Again, the Anders Breivik case is a great example of a country treating a mass murderer like a human being rather than a monster (after all, we are a little bit old to be believing in monsters).  So...after reading up on him, I'm very surprised.  He was the Taliban's Taliban.  But he's twisted. He should not of been deemed sane. He should be spending the rest of his days in Solitary Confinement.  Would locking this man in a small space and letting his mind corrode even further really service anyone? Would you or I actually be better off? Do you think the victims' families will be safer at night knowing we've crushed the psyche of a murderer?  Being in prison is good enough, and he'll stay in prison as long as he's a threat, I see no reason that we need to torture him (and that is exactly what indefinite solitary confinement is), other than to satisfy our primal desires. This is why I consider this such a progressive decision. Treating even mass murderers like human beings who still have potential value is progress.  Crushing his psyche is more humane then killing the man. And at this point, he's not going to be much good to society.  Not every psychopathic murderer can come back to be a good citizen. Should he get a shrink? Of course. But if he's deemed "broken beyond repair" I don't see why we should let him be among others, so that he can either be martyr'd for his beliefs in jail or kill a Muslim who is in the prison, or spread his message to to others.  The compromise is that we need to have a volley of psychological tests to determine if they could be fixed (And yes, i know it's not that simple...but its better then letting EVERY SINGLE PSYCHOPATH in a regular prison) and use those tests to place them either in a regular prison, or have a makeshift Arkham Asylum, or solitary confinement.  I think you're confusing high-security and solitary confinement. There is absolutely no reason to keep anybody in solitary confinement indefinitely. We do not need to kill him, or crush his psyche, we have other options. IF he is still deemed unsafe, they can deal with him as they see fit. Obviously if he presents an active danger to other inmates, he should be kept away, but I seriously question the idea that we should preemptively punish him for things he hasn't actually done yet. I don't disagree that it's a case-by-case basis, obviously not every murderer can be reintegrated into society, but if there's even one, don't you think we should give him that opportunity? I think we should start by assuming that every one can be rehabilitated (which obviously won't happen), and then narrow it down from there, not the other way around. Prison is not about making people uncomfortable, it should be about keeping society safe, and about reintegrating violent criminals into a safe society.
