The end? I think you were pretty dead-on with his psychology at the end there.

In all, you have a sparse but effective, fast paced, and very engaging style that suits this fandom very well. I guessed the ending, but felt awesome about it, because you got me /that/ hooked. xD Also, I thought it was a very interesting decision you made to have "Keifer" (bahaha) reveal himself to Stu and Emily. It stresses well that he has a higher level of . . . respect, I guess, for them, since, as you have decided, they are the only people who ever have passed or ever will pass his test.

In other words, I enjoyed this a lot and PLEASE write more for "Phone Booth"!

I'd like to read the other fanfic you're thinking of doing.

Excellent ending. You actually scared me there for a second though. I was shocked to see a new chapter in my inbox, I actually had to go back and re-read chapter 5 because I'd forgotten exactly what happened. But the wait was worth it and I must say, I applaud your writing ability. Very well executed. And I agree, the idea of going back and looking into "Keifer's" past and how he got to the point of killing would be very interesting. I find that sort of thing fascinating really, it's why I love Criminal Minds so much ;)

Anyway, I'd certainly be interested in reading another story and I loved this one! Very well written, in-character, suspenseful and well-paced. I thouroughly enjoyed reading every chapter! Well done!

I have to say, I am with everyone else. Another great story that deserves more reviews. I absolutely loved this movie and i just wish there were more fans of it so that this fandom could be full and see this lovely take with Stu's sister and the next two years of his life and how badly his mind is ruined. very powerful at the end.-Stranger

Maddening.

I gotta tell you, I'm highly disappointed in the lack of review for this, I feel like it should get tons more, but the fandom doesnt seem incredibly strong, so that could be it.

An amazing fic, very suspenseful and well written. I absolutely love Phonebooth and I was bored, flipping through random fandoms (lol, that rhymed) when I came across this story. I read it, loved it and came very close to beating my head against the keyboard when I came to end of this chapter and it was a freaking cliffhanger! I want to know what happens? Stu is between a rock and a very hard place. Either his kill this man (who, if Keifer is telling the truth, I believe totally deserves to die) that he's never met, or Keifer kills his sister, plus reliving the most traumatic experience of his entire life. This has to be his worst day ever...

I know you haven't updated this in a while, which makes me pessemistic about you updaing it again, but you did say it was completed so I'm going to hold out hope that you will one day (soon, hopefully) post the rest of it so that I can read and not lose the little sanity that still remains to my name.

Amazing story so far, I really and looking forward to reading the rest whenever you feel like updating!

I don't understand why no one reviewed this. It's ridiculous. Aside from some grammar errors I thought the story was quite enjoyable. I always periodically check out this section, it was a good movie and I thought more people would get creative with writing for it. Least I found one, it really interested me. The plot so far is interesting, and sensible. It isn't some on the spot plot, you looked at what was not mentioned in the movie. Family. I'm actually surprised it wasn't weighed against Stu, but at the same time I'm glad it wasn't apart of it because you used it to your advantage here.

Emily is an interesting character, truly the opposite of Stu. Just be careful with her in future chapters, don't try to make her picture perfect. Too much good put into a character will make them repetitive, and bland after a while. No one has a clean record, someone has something they regret. There is always going to be a smudge, taint, or something alike. I'm not saying make her do something criminal, because that might be a bit much. She seems like a good person, so I would probably suggest some things she's not proud of morally, more-so. Give her more dimensions than just the good, honest sister. No one is perfect, so reading about someone that has some of their own issues, no matter how minor, will make people more familiar and relate more. And in New York you can always find something, haha.

Mystery caller, you seemed to deliver well on his end. It could of been better, but it was nonetheless suitable. I'd recommend doing some more details or adding more description. Chapter Two had plenty of it on Stu's end, and enhancing that for Emily would increase her character value. As for the mystery caller (whom you dubbed Keifer, nice name, very fitting) adding more details when describing him would increase his dangerous persona. He looks fairly ordinary, but writing in detail gives a bigger impact and more emotion. You have good description thus so far, but you do tend to go into just speaking. That takes away value, makes it seem more like a script, or screenplay writing.

Like I said, you made some grammar mistakes in the chapters. Mostly just a few misspellings and comma errors, things that can easily be fixed with a glance over. No sweat, though.

I'm really liking this story. If you need any help with it (can't imagine you could, though, haha) feel free to send me a message.

I can't wait for you to update it! :D
