You're The Star! 11 Exciting Endings!

Can You Outwit The Kidnappers And Make Your Way To Freedom ?

You have been invited to visit your friend Jason after school. When you arrive, you are surprised to find that he is extremely wealthy and that he lives in a mansion. While you are racing Jason down his driveway, a stranger suddenly approaches and gestures for you and Jason to get in his car. A security guard lies wounded on the ground, and you realize that you're about to be kidnapped. What will you do?

If you decide to make a run for it, turn to page 105. If you decide to wait for a better opportunity to escape, turn to page 17 But be careful! Your quick thinking might save you and Jason and help capture the kidnappers. Or the two of you might end up lost at sea, trapped in a burning boat with no hope for survival!

What happens next in the story? It all depends on the choices you make. How does the story end? Only you can find out! And the best part is that you can keep reading and rereading until you've had not one but many incredibly daring experiences!

Kidnapped! by Edward Packard is #116 in the Choose Your Own Adventure series. The plot finds you and a wealthy friend being kidnapped(!) by a pair of murderous thugs who plan on making their getaway by boat on the ocean. Like a lot of Packard's books that I've read after the 100 mark in the series this one really dragged and felt uninspired.

My reading of the book went as follows. It took eight pages before coming across the first choice. And this book really jumps around so you go from page 5 to page 70 to page 6 to page 53, etc. It's a little irritating and unnecessary. Anyway on my first choice I tried to escape, succeeded (after being asked if I was really, really sure I didn't want to stay kidnapped), and the book ended. A little underwhelming. So I went back and did the other path. It was another seven pages until my second choice. Again I decided to escape and again immediately succeeded thus ending my reading. A little perturbed at the author's insistence that I either stay kidnapped or stop reading I went back again and chose the other path. And it was another six pages until my third choice. Of course I escaped again and of course the book immediately ended. Going back and again choosing the stay-kidnapped path it was another five pages before the next choice and I had had enough.

A few random thoughts:

The second time I escaped the hospital I recovered in was insanely insistent on not letting anyone visit me. Visitors weren't allowed to see me for a week while I was in bed with some broken bones and internal bleeding. And then when my kidnapped friend does comes to thank me the nurse angrily kicks him out.
