    Way back in the day, I was browsing r/nosleep on reddit, and I discovered a creepy, serialized story about voices in the dark. I was immediately hooked, and followed along with thousands of other redditors as the story took on a life of its own. I was pretty thrilled to discover that Blackwell was going to publish the story as a single book, and when Stolen Tongues was finally released, I was all over it. It was interesting to read through it again, and to note the differences from the original, serialized format and this newly compiled and singular story. That said, it didn't lose anything for it, in my opinion.I love this story; I love how it gives me that creepy, unsettled feeling in my stomach, and the way my spine crawls uncomfortably, even in the bright light of day. Blackwell has a knack for creating a tense and uneasy atmosphere, and I think at least a part of it is that he plays on the same fears that Freddy Kreuger did once upon a time - the helplessness of being attacked in our dreams, and being preyed upon by something we can't see lurking in the dark. There were a couple of things about the book that didn't work for me - sometimes his word choice struck me as a bit odd and pulled me out of the story, sometimes I was annoyed at what I felt was epic stupidity on the part of the characters - but it's still one of my favourites. It takes a lot to creep me out, and this one manages quite nicely.

    This book gave me the shivers. There is something really creepy about people talking in their sleep, especially when it seems like they are talking to something else. That and the noises and footsteps coming from nowhere, plus some of the weird reactions of Faye while she sleep walks, really gave me a feeling of unease. It would certainly make a great movie!

    A friend pointed me in the direction of Felix's original serialized story on reddit. I was hooked from the first post. And so were my coworkers. Each day during breaks, we would jump on reddit and check for updates until the story was completed.From there, I followed Felix on Facebook and was thrilled to find out that he would be turning that series of reddit posts into a full blown novel. I ordered it as soon as it was published, but then allowed a move to a new house and a busy few months get in the way of getting a start on reading.Now that I've read it, I can say that I was just as hooked as I had been with the initial online posts. The way Felix was able to draw me in was kind of amazing and terrifying all at once. From the prologue on, I had chills running up my spine at least once in each chapter. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.Oh, and I've heard there's the possibility of this being turned into a movie. Honestly, I'd be thrilled to see this brought to life on the screen, whether that's at a movie theater or on someone's YouTube channel. Make it happen, Hollywood!

    I discovered the story of Faye and Felix's romantic getaway turned into a nightmare about a year ago on Reddit's NoSleep. I was captivated by the story immediately. Afterwards I listened to the wonderful narration done by a brilliant YouTube horror narrator. However reading the story again, with all the little details and additions to the story was truly amazing. Mr Blackwell has managed to portray himself and Faye in such a way that you're bound to believe that all of this shitstorm happened. I love the portrayal of the Indigenous community, also I very much enjoyed the explanation Felix has given at the end of the story, about ho Tiwe and Nathan are their own people, how Angela is so separated from the usual stereotype of an elderly witch doctor or a spiritual box of knowledge. All in all, I was amazed by the book. This is not the first time I'm introduced to the story of how the Impostor is trying to ruin Faye, but this time, reading this book it brought tears to my eyes. Tears for Faye, for Tiwe and Nathan, for the loss of a child. This is the best book, the best story I have read in a while and I am sure that I will return to it again and again.

    It can sometimes be difficult to review novels or stories that began their life as "creepypasta," the neologism that includes the stores from Reddit's "nosleep" subreddit. They exist to accomplish a very particular task: deliver scares to the reader. And yet, a rare talent like Blackwell can craft an engaging plot and insert a modicum of humanity while also terrifying.Horror in general always has to thread the needle of "quality storytelling" and being scary. The more a story reveals, the more its scares are demystified. Some of the best horror rests on a nonsensical plot and couldn't function any other way. But those tales can also be frustrating for those that desire plot intrigue with a satisfying resolution.There are things to unpack about Blackwell's story that are quite fascinating. But ultimately, this is a story that haunts readers as well as compelling them to keep the pages turning. This story is fascinating and engaging despite its familiarity. It's a classic among 2010s horror, to be sure.

    Simply brilliant.I originally read this as the multi-year story published on Reddits NoSleep community and it for under my skin then. Now, reading the full version in broad daylight, I cannot help but feel it's not gotten under my skin so much as crawled into my very being and taken up residence in the dark corners of my mind. I cannot shake the intense feeling of being watched after finishing this book and doubt I'll be able to for a while. I highly recommend this to anyone who's a fan of NoSleep and the horror genre in general.

    I followed this series on reddit's nosleep from the start, and each post gave me the most perfect shudders of horror. The adaptation to a full novel was smooth and seamless, with some amazing new threads added throughout to give it more body.Even knowing the direction of the story, each shivery moment was still flawless. I was so caught up, I could almost hear the myriad voices echoing in my own head. This one's gonna stick with me.

    A great ending to a great storyGreat book, glad I finally read the ending to the story that began as a series of posts on reddit. I think it is worth to read through the reddit story after this as it provides a less polished and more "in the moment" type of a story. The book is great and I am looking forward to reading more of your writing in the future.

    Wanted to give it more stars, but by the end it just seemed like things felt repeated over and over again. Great story line and an easy read that i would recommend for a rainy day. Can't wait to see what they do with this for a movie.

    I never got a chance to see this on Reddit, but I’m glad I found it on Kindle. Very creepy and original. All around awesome.
