Montgomery was an adventurer all his life, climbing mountains in the Himalaya, skiing throughout Europe and scuba-diving wherever he could. His interested included education, macro-economics, geo-politics, mythology, history, mystery novels and music. He wrote his first interactive book, Journey Under the Sea, in 1976 and published it under the series name The Adventures of You. A few years later Bantam Books bought this book and gave Montgomery a contract for five more, to inaugurate their new children s publishing division. Bantam renamed the series Choose Your Own Adventure and a publishing phenomenon was born. The series has sold more than 260 million copies in over 40 languages. He was married to the writer Shannon Gilligan. Montgomery died in November 2014, only two months after his last book was published.Review:
After a brief hiatus from the presses, the venerable series is back and moving into the 21st century. Founder R.A. Montgomery started the Choose Your Own Adventure series with 'The Abominable Snowman.' Each book is written in the second-person and you play the role of the main character. Readers are given choices and decide on a course by turning to different pages. Each book has many possible endings and side stories, some with over 100 variations. Furthermore, you can continue reading until you attain a favorable ending if you, as this author did in his first read, die in your first attempt. --Blast Magazine, January 1, 2007
