The Stranger Game

In my opinion...

An intriguing concept, but I found the early descriptions of following people and inventing their life stories a little repetitive.

Around two thirds of the way through, the pace started to move a little quicker, and became much darker, with some interesting final twists-but I couldn't feel a connection with any of the characters.

There seems to be a trend for novels involving different types of social media , and the potential dangers it brings with it- and this novel did make me think, what if... this could happen...

Rebecca’s on-again, off-again boyfriend, Ezra, has gone missing, but when she notifies the police, they seem surprisingly unconcerned. They suspect he has been playing the ‘stranger game,’ a viral hit in which players start following others in real life, as they might otherwise do on social media.

But as the game spreads, the rules begin to change, and disappearances are reported across the country.

Curious about this popular new obsession, and hoping that she might track down Ezra, Rebecca tries the game for herself. She also meets Carey, who is willing to take the game further than she imagined possible.

In playing the stranger game, what leads Rachel closer to finding Ezra will take her further and further from the life she once lived . . .

My rating...

An inventive unusual idea
