A Fate Totally Worse Than Death by Paul Fleischman

A Fate Totally Worse Than Death by Paul Fleischman

Published: Walker Books, 1996

Danielle and her friends from Cliffside High's cruelest clique — the Huns — set out to crush a ravishing exchange student from Norway. Will they go as far as murder? They have before. But as they plot and plan, they start to realize that something ghastly has started to happen to them, something they would no doubt describe as a fate totally worse than death!

I quite enjoyed reading A Fate Totally Worse Than Death. It was really tiny so it didn't take very long to read at all.

I thought the idea of the book was quite funny, for a while I couldn't work out what was going happening but then I realized what was going on and it became quite hilarious.

The characters were all typical cliché which suited the book well and made it all the more enjoyable.

The twist at the end of the book surprised me a little however. Which just made it quite good and it was slightly humorous.

Overall, I found A Fate Totally Worse Than Death to be a highly enjoyable novel. It's a good book to read on a rainy afternoon. I'd recommend this one to anyone who likes a horror spoof, or just a tiny little read.

My Rating: φφφφ


  1. this one sounds very entertaining but I'm not sure I'd like those cliche characters. Like you said though, it might suit the book well. I'll try and check it out of my library when they have it. :D

  2. hmm, i'm so curious about this horror-spoof. the little "help" dialogue bubble on the book cover is cute.
