Phrogger by Candace Nola
What would you give for an extra life?
When one man loses everything while risking it all for an extra life, he vows to teach others the value of a second chance.
Hopping from pad to pad, he chooses one player to compete against him to save their family. If they win, he moves along, if they fail…Game Over.
Play or Die? What do you choose?
A wonderful fast paced story filled with nostalgia, home invasions, a sense of serial killer impending doom, and of course....a commodore 64. Blend it all together on high and out pops Phrogger by Candace Nola. Nothing held back in this novella of what it takes to win this game of life.
Very creepy concept and a lot of great descriptions. Quick read, if you haven’t read it yet, check it out.
This is my 4th Candace Nola book and I haven't been disappointed yet. Such good story telling.
While the act of Phrogging itself creeps me out, Candace takes it one step further and makes it absolutely terrifying. He hides in your home, learning your everyday routine. Doing things that make you think you are losing your mind. A book slightly moved, toys arranged differently, or food missing. Patiently waiting to make his move. Will you play his game to save your family? Do you have what it takes? If you beat his high score, he moves on; if you don't, you die. One of Candaces best stories to date. Intense, violent—did I say intense already? lol Fantastic story from a fantastic storyteller. Definitely check this one out. You won't be disappointed. 5 severed fingers out of 5
