Well, this was a fun, creeptastic ride!
I love books that have to do with carnivals or old diners, or just old creepy stuff. I had no idea this was a video game! Lol! I just saw it on overdrive, it sounded good so I picked it up. I can't say anything for the video game but the book was awesome!
When Charlie was young, her father used to own Freddy Fazbear's Pizza where he had animatronics serving people and putting on shows. Charlie's dad built all of these himself. He even build some animatronics for her room. She had Ella the doll, Stanley the unicorn, and Theodore the purple rabbit.
But something went wrong. One of Charlie's little friends was dragged away by the fox with a hook and things just went south from there. Seems there were more kids taken, or where they?
Ten years later, the friends come back to town (with the exception of one family that didn't move) to celebrate the scholarship fund Michael's parents were giving to a student.
The friends got together afterwards to catch up on old times etc. Charlie, John, Jessica, Carlton, Marla and her little brother Jason.
They ended up at the old pizza place. It was going to be turned into a mall but it was just abandoned and the kids found out that they build the mall up around Freddy's. <---like that isn't weird.
They found a way in and saw all of the creepy life size dolls. Freddy the bear, Bonnie the rabbit, Chica the chicken and Foxy the pirate fox with a hook. And there is something really messed up in that place. I really enjoyed the creep factory, it is totally there.
I loved the book so much, but there were a few parts where I was confused. Like there was a part where John and Charlie talk about her early childhood. She's getting these memories of having a brother and stuff like that, well. . . what happened to him? They moved and he wasn't around any more so I'm wondering did something kill him, someone, uh, what? I have an idea but it's never really explained. Also, Charlies mom just takes after after her fathers death and Charlie grows up with her aunt and that's about it. Her mom is still around but not around, but whatever! It was so much creepy fun and some really sad, sad stuff came out in the wash at then end!
They have this paperback on Amazon for like $6 and some change. I think I will be adding it to my collection. =)
