A different reason to avoid Freddy & co.

I saw the word fanfiction and cringed a bit, but I've always liked Five Night's at Freddy's atmosphere and the constant sense that there's more going on than what we are shown, so I decided to give it a try. It's not a bad story, but a lot of that comes from the games themselves. What I dislike most is that the potential for a great story is there, but poor execution means that it's never realised. About forty minutes in a man says to his son "What if they kill you for good?" and any chance of immersing me in the story died. Who doesn't kill someone for good? I listened to the rest, determined to give the book every chance, but no. The plot jumps constantly between the present and the past - I found this a bit too confusing for comfort, although I like that the roots of the story (the infamous "bite" events referred to in the games) are explored as much as the plot in the present. Every character is described in this order - hair colour, eye colour, clothes or dress, socks or stockings and shoes. It's that much of a checklist, and it really irks me. Also - I personally don't like that the animatronics talk. The games with their limited budget had a lot of menacing silence, which I agree doesn't transfer to a written story well, but was such a part of the fear factor the game induced that it just seems wrong to give Freddy a voice.

Having said all this - I'd be wrong if I didn't mention the occasional bright spots. I think, again personally, that a couple of the more melancholic scenes, particularly the opening chapter with the dead boy at the birthday party, and a later scene where the animatronics discuss how to proceed (not wanting to spoil the scene too much) are done quite nicely. It's too little to save it for me, but at least it's not all bad.

I have to admit I wasn't expecting much, but rather than being surprised I was only disappointed.
