    Between 2.5 and 3 stars, rounded up. You're in a public place and a person or group of people catches your eye. It may be the way they look, their actions, things they're saying, but you just can't stop yourself from surreptitiously watching them. You don't want to get caught, but y...

    Always remember the three simple rules.... 1 pick your subjects at random. 2 NO contact. 3 never follow the same subject twice! easy enough, right? But what am I talking about, what game?These are the rules for the game sweeping the nation the ?Stranger Game?... A game tak...

    Despite the intriguing premise of this one, The Stranger Game didn?t work for me. I loved the slight ties to the social media obsessed era we live in, and taking that to real life. That said, the mystery and suspense was lacking on this one, and the plot moved slowly. I didn?t feel...

    A stylish psychological thriller set in Los Angeles, in the future of the day after tomorrow. The Stranger Game follows Rebecca--whose boyfriend Ezra has left her--who begins to toy with a game that is sweeping the city. The rules of the game are simple. You pick a random stranger?mu...

    The Stranger Game is a strange book filled with strange characters doing strange things- weirdly compelling and beautifully voyeuristic. A fad started by a random essay finds strangers following strangers, imagining stories for them but never interacting. Rebecca's boyfriend vanish...

    Do you want to play a game? If the answer is yes,then welcome,good luck but always remember to obey the 3 simple rules.... 1 : Choose your subjects at random. 2 : No Contact 3 : Never follow the same stranger twice Sounds simple doesn't it,the only problem with rules is they...

    Three rules: 1. Choose your subjects at random. 2. No contact. 3. Never follow the same stranger twice. Rules are made to be broken and games are made to evolve. In this world of game play, the littlest thing can take on a life of its own. Peter brings us a world in which stalki...

    "The world was a world of strangers, and all anyone wanted...was to be seen and to be known, truly known." Rebecca is alone and lonely. Her long-time boyfriend, Ezra, has disappeared without a word and even the police can't find him for her. After awhile, she finds an essay on Ezra'...

    I couldn't put it down. Taut, suspenseful--loved how the framework of the Stranger Game became a paranoia for both Rebecca and the reader, a low key anxiety that you can't trust anyone around you. A perfect read for Halloween season in that way, but also an interesting take on a litera...

    I was very excited to check out this book from the premise. So, when I was luckily to grab an advanced copy I was thrilled. I put aside several other books to jump into this one. In the beginning it felt like I had missed a few steps and started in the middle. However, I decided to bru...

    It kills me not to give this a 5-star review because it was *so close* to having one. You can see I read this quite quickly. In fact, if you have a free Saturday or Sunday, you could finish The Stranger Game in one day. It's definitely a page-turner. Rebecca's lover, Ezra, up and l...

    I thought this book had more than a good chance of enthralling me, as the set-up was really interesting. I thought it could have gone in several very dark ways, but in the end it turned into a rather dull thriller. The plot set-up was good, the setting was a little confusing, somewhere...

    It's been over two months since Rebecca heard from her ex, Ezra. Even though they're separated they've never gone this long without speaking. And when Rebecca turned up at Ezra's apartment, his landlord said he'd missed his rent, so she knows something's up. The police don't seem t...

    Thanks to Hanover Square Press for the copy in exchange for my honest review! Who doesn't love people watching? Let's be real here, we've all had our moments where some stranger catches our eye and you wonder what they do or what their lives are like. Or you completely fabric and gu...

    I thought this book had more than a good chance of enthralling me, as the set-up was really interesting. I thought it could have gone in several very dark ways, but in the end it turned into a rather dull thriller. The plot set-up was good, the setting was a little confusing, somewhere...

    It's been over two months since Rebecca heard from her ex, Ezra. Even though they're separated they've never gone this long without speaking. And when Rebecca turned up at Ezra's apartment, his landlord said he'd missed his rent, so she knows something's up. The police don't seem t...

    The Stranger Game is more than its thriller set up, it?s a complex look at modern loneliness in a world full of people and technology that is supposed to make us feel more connected. It?s haunting trip into inward focused paranoia expressed outwardly. Unfortunately, much of the sub...

    Despite the intriguing premise of this one, The Stranger Game didn?t work for me. I loved the slight ties to the social media obsessed era we live in, and taking that to real life. That said, the mystery and suspense was lacking on this one, and the plot moved slowly. I didn?t feel...

    The Stranger Game is a strange book filled with strange characters doing strange things- weirdly compelling and beautifully voyeuristic. A fad started by a random essay finds strangers following strangers, imagining stories for them but never interacting. Rebecca's boyfriend vanish...

    I couldn't put it down. Taut, suspenseful--loved how the framework of the Stranger Game became a paranoia for both Rebecca and the reader, a low key anxiety that you can't trust anyone around you. A perfect read for Halloween season in that way, but also an interesting take on a litera...

    It kills me not to give this a 5-star review because it was *so close* to having one. You can see I read this quite quickly. In fact, if you have a free Saturday or Sunday, you could finish The Stranger Game in one day. It's definitely a page-turner. Rebecca's lover, Ezra, up and l...

    Between 2.5 and 3 stars, rounded up. You're in a public place and a person or group of people catches your eye. It may be the way they look, their actions, things they're saying, but you just can't stop yourself from surreptitiously watching them. You don't want to get caught, but y...

    Always remember the three simple rules.... 1 pick your subjects at random. 2 NO contact. 3 never follow the same subject twice! easy enough, right? But what am I talking about, what game?These are the rules for the game sweeping the nation the ?Stranger Game?... A game tak...

    Despite the intriguing premise of this one, The Stranger Game didn?t work for me. I loved the slight ties to the social media obsessed era we live in, and taking that to real life. That said, the mystery and suspense was lacking on this one, and the plot moved slowly. I didn?t feel...

    A stylish psychological thriller set in Los Angeles, in the future of the day after tomorrow. The Stranger Game follows Rebecca--whose boyfriend Ezra has left her--who begins to toy with a game that is sweeping the city. The rules of the game are simple. You pick a random stranger?mu...

    The Stranger Game is a strange book filled with strange characters doing strange things- weirdly compelling and beautifully voyeuristic. A fad started by a random essay finds strangers following strangers, imagining stories for them but never interacting. Rebecca's boyfriend vanish...

    "The world was a world of strangers, and all anyone wanted...was to be seen and to be known, truly known." Rebecca is alone and lonely. Her long-time boyfriend, Ezra, has disappeared without a word and even the police can't find him for her. After awhile, she finds an essay on Ezra'...

    I couldn't put it down. Taut, suspenseful--loved how the framework of the Stranger Game became a paranoia for both Rebecca and the reader, a low key anxiety that you can't trust anyone around you. A perfect read for Halloween season in that way, but also an interesting take on a litera...
