They say you have to wave your own flags, so here goes:

“This is something that no other contemporary Malaysian novelist writing in English has done, and Tunku Halim is to be congratulated for being the first [for his writing in Last Breath].”  Chuah Guat Eng in Asiatic (IIUM Journal of Language and Literature)

“The alternate history in [Last Breath] is fascinating … The writing is rich with details … it’s fascinating cast of characters and surreal humour make it well worth a read.”  The Star

“. . . a Malaysian with an undeniably gift for the narrative.”
New Straits Times

“Tunku Halim’s written English is wonderful.” The Sunday Mail

“Horror with a bloody heart . . . tales of the strange and macabre.” The Sun

“. . . Halim sets out to entertain his readers, and in that he succeeds.” The Star

“A literary talent”  Marie Claire

“. . .a darkly impressive author of bloodcurdling tales . . . and in the silence of the night comes to the full force of his storytelling art.” Journal One

“It would be more difficult to find a Malaysian writer of horror stories more erudite than Tunku Halim. His prose literally sings and flows with the ease of a ghost hovering near the ceiling of a haunted house.” Xeus, author of Dark City

“Malaysia’s Stephen King.” Amir Muhammad

“The story telling is gripping, you’ll keep turning the pages even when the plot scares the living daylights out of you.” Xandria Ooi

“… shows an ability to get deep into your head and stir up some real psychological fear. It’s even got bits of macabre comedy in it, a la Edgar Allan Poe. With so many dismal local horror movies coming out all the time, why don’t Malaysian filmmakers just learn by reading this guy’s book?” Weekend Mail

Now, you didn’t expect me to include the bad reviews as well, did you?
