Has anyone bought the new versions of the Choose Your Own Adventure books for their kids?

Any different than the old ones?

  • My 12 yo likes them. Personally, I didn't think the story lines were as good as I remembered - but that could be my memory, or the fact that my son's interests lean more toward science fiction than mine.

  • I didn't even know they started making them again! I loved those things when I was my son through my oldest daughter's ages! I'll have to look 'em up and see.

  • I didn't realize they had, either. Thought I'd look for some for him on Ebay, and instead new ones showed up.

  • I don't know what the new ones are vs. the old ones. DS has read a few that he got from the library, but I don't recall what they were about. He liked them, but I have to say, they don't seem to last very long or keep him entertained for very long.
