Expected more It was good, but the first four stories are on reddit, albeit with more detail added. This alone takes up half the book. I was under the impression his stories were true, as he stated there on reddit. Intensely disappointed to know that he was either lying or made up the rest of the stories in order to make this book. Either way wished it had been longer and not fake. I will say certain aspects of it had me going 'wtf' but the ending was almost a cliche.
Greatest story Ive ever read. Ive never been more emotionally attached to a character, a relatable story on my end...not due to me being stalked, but how a friendship can disolve, and how quickly someone you love can disappear.
Disturbing and unique I couldn't stop reading this one.. Every chapter is different in its own way, yet they all connect beautifully as the story progresses. I haven't been able to cease recommending this book to others. Penpal broke my heart, and in a creepy and odd way, I want others to share in my experience.. I know there's no way that an individual could be disappointed, bored, or uninterested while flipping their way through this fantastic narrative.
Had to have this in my collection I found this story on reddit several years ago and listened to audiobooks of it that can be found on youtube. This story is well written with excellent use of suspense. The author is really great at placing you in the shoes of the protagonist and giving you a sense of how they may feel at different stages in their life throughout the plot. I especially liked how even the smallest of details in early chapters end up coming together to play a significant role in explaining the plot. I would highly recommend this for anyone who enjoys suspense and a bit of a scare.
Compelling I never read. And I mean never. Not even when I had to in school. I caught the beginnings of the story as they were written on the original thread in /r/nosleep and had to pick up the book to continue the story. Absolutely chilling and very hard to put down.
The Greatest Fear of All Horror is at its simplest and most ruthless when it pertains to the soft underbelly; exploiting the vulnerable. "Penpal" does just that with some genuinely terrifying results. The notion of obsession and stalking of a child is one that is greatly unnerving and the pacing is pitch perfect. The few gripes I have derive from some prose issues and the jumbled structure, but these are minor details when the story had me spooked from start to finish.
Amazing book The author is an absolute master of suspense. Incredibly well-written, complex plot, characters you can truly care about and connect with; not just a scary story. This is a book that can be thoroughly enjoyed by any reader, not just CreepyPasta addicts. One of the greatest books I have ever read.
