Publisher's Summary

Based on the best-selling horror video game series, Five Nights at Freddy's.

It's been exactly 10 years since the murders at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, and Charlotte (Charlie for short) has spent those 10 years trying to forget. Her father was the owner of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza and the creator of its four adult-sized animatronic animals, and now Charlie is returning to her hometown to reunite with her childhood friends on the anniversary of the tragedy that ripped their town apart.

Curiosity leads Charlie and her friends back to the old pizza place, and they find it hidden and sealed, but still standing. They discover a way inside, but things are not as they once were: the four mascots that delighted and entertained them as children have changed. The animatronic animals have a dark secret, and a murderous agenda.

Brilliant.

I honestly loved this book. Suzanne Freeman does an amazing job voicing the characters. aswell as telling the story. Scott and Kira did a very good job with the story, but it did leave me with wanting more. My favorite character is CHarly, Mainly because the story resolved around her. She is the main character.. My least favorite was Lamar.. I felt he was undeveloped really. If there is a second book, I will be grabbing it. The Story, I will admit, wasn't scary at all. But being a fan of the games, I knew what was happening around every corner. Overall. It's a good book, and a great listen. Suzanne brought character to these characters.

Suzanne makes it!

The writing was well done, enough even to stand on its own... but the voice acting was very well done. I was reluctant because horror books can be made silly very easily by the wrong tone. Suzanne definitely delivered the suspense very, very well. Story was lacking a proper ending for me but still, overall a steady 5.

A simple game turns a good mystery

The novelization of the FNAF game series proves to produce a solid story in novel form. The games themselves are largely very simple, in gameplay, but it's the subtle details and atmosphere that draw so many in for speculation and anticipation. The novel manages to capitalize on these traits quite well, spinning an excellent tale woven from elements familiar, but much more involved, than those gleamed from the games.

As such, I absolutely recommend it to those who are hungry for more story from this setting, though it may confound speculation on the game story, as I hear it's considered a parallel or alternative interpretation. Just the same, what is revealed is very compelling and absolutely stands on it's own. In fact, the way it's written, I could easily see this adapting extremely well to film - if they are basing the movie on it - in the hands of a capable director. ... And it says Book 1? Oh spud.

A little up and down but worth a listen

There were some glaring flaws in the story and its characters that caused the experience to sour a bit. It feels very much so that both Scott and Kira had different stories they wanted to tell. Much of the plot feels like filler and exposition, which isn't always a bad thing, but it can detract from the story's flow. I felt that it became apparent early on that much of the character interactions and character exposition were written by Kira, where as the lore and the horror aspects where written by Scott. This will be less distracting to listeners who are unfamiliar or only slightly familiar with the games but advent fans may find it difficult to ignore. it's also worth mentioning that Scott's trademark clue weaving is present yet slightly lacking or obvious. With that being said, the book shines bright in so many areas and when it gets it right, it's right. The atmosphere gets so thick in parts that it's hard not to believe that it's just a story. The backstory is so rich in detail that you will find yourself feeling like you're thinking about a true story. ultimately if it's on sale or your a fan of FNAF. it's worth a buy, the story isn't perfect but it's great for some fan service.

A fun story reminiscent of Goosebumps

The story starts a little slow, but has an interesting mysterious tone lying beneath. Only an hour in I was hooked! The book reminds me a lot of Goosebumps but a little bit more mature. The climax is a blast and super fun. Not a scary book, but a good mystery thriller for pre-teens to young adults. Only big complaint is the ending felt a bit too rushed. I'm a gamer, but never got into the FNaF games, so I feel confident in saying non fans can really dig this book too. Totally recommended.

Welcome to Freddys

ill admit this book took time to get into with a intresting opening thats tries to grip you with a cliff hanger of whats to come. which i thought wasnt needed.. however where to story starts very slow it needs to keep you intresred some how. when listening to this book the characters where believeable and its easy to realate toe given how past events have effected them all. all connected to "freddy faz bears pizzaea" now closed down and left to rot. and with good reason of child disapearences and murders. on the anniversary of a certon characters death all the friends reunite to clear the past and hopefully give it some closeure on the murders that happend. only to find out the animatronics have a big story to tell in their haunting actions and rusted parts. it realates to the games well but changes the story enough to keep it fresh and i prefer the story here compared to the games story. its alot of teenage drama to start with but stick with it as the great deatailed story really shines when the horror kicks off. its great for those who love the game series and for those looking for a solid horror story. Suzanne tells it well if only making the male characters sound very dull and emotionless compared to all the female characters but you will soon get over it as the story takes over. over all a fantasic read

So good!

pleasantly surprised! I am a big fan of the games and felt this gave so much more to the story. The narration at times was a bit slow and felt some scenes dragged on but other than that, it was fantastic! Very creepy description of the animatronics and some suspenseful parts. On to book 2 right now!

Had potential

For such a popular game, I was expecting something a little more well developed. It had some good moments, but overall the story lacked, so it was really only okay.
