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.

An ok story with some pretty terrible writing (If I hear the word "sheepishly" one more time, I'll start breaking things).
Starts with the overused teaser opening and then skips to "3 days earlier" cliché.
And ends fairly predictably as well, which I won't spoil.
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.
"My Son Loved it!"
This book had a great vibe and was enjoyable! My Son had a great time listening to it. My son is a fan of the game and really enjoyed the lore.
"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.
Amazing and probably the only good Fnaf book ever made. spring trap died why just why
"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.
"great for fnaf fans"
I loved this book and for one credit it was awesome and if you like fnaf (Wich why else would you be looking into this book) long story short totaly worth it if under 15 USD
"Wonderful and Vibrant"
The narrator was fantastic, but at times I think see needed more emotion for the characters, Example; when Bonnie hit Carlton and he was weezing on the ground the narrator should have sounded like she was weezing, to give emotion.
I also felt it should had added some sound effects, like when Foxy slammed into the game consoles it would be cool to actually hear the thud, Freddy's music box just quietly playing just barely audible, and when Charlie tripped the Spring Locks in the suit hearing them snap like the sound of a gun. I think these sounds would be good to add, but there would be no need to overuse the sounds, like Foxy's hook or gears whirling, that wouldn't need a sound effect, the table crashing wouldn't need one either.
Other then that it was fantastic thank you for reading this. - Diemand
