    Great Sci Fi and Horror

    Think Flatliners or Dreamscape. Maybe Inception. This book takes hypnosis to the extreme, opening up things about the human mind never explored before. Very, very gripping.

    A lot packed in

    There's science fiction. There's horror. The best part is probably the psychological aspect. This will be his break through novel.

    Surprisingly Good

    I met Joshua Scribner at a book signing in Norman, Oklahoma a few years back. It wasn't my type of book, but I felt kind of sorry for him, a new author struggling to sell books. I bought this book from him, but it was a different version. I thought I'd read a few pages and then put it away. As it turns out, I read it in a couple of evenings. It wasn't my type of book, and it was scary, but he moves with such a fast pace it's hard to stop reading. I've read a few more of his books and a lot of his stories since then.

    Makes you think

    This is one of the most thought provoking books I've ever read. Really makes you think of the human mind and what it's capable of, both good and bad. On the one hand it can protect you. On the other hand, those same things that protect you can make you crazy. I love this book and will probably read it a few times over.

    Great story line

    This story had me spinning a few times, and not knowing where the storyline was heading! I would read this one again, and would recommend it highly.

    Amazing idea. Incredible mind.

    I don't know how he comes up with his ideas, but this novel is brilliant. It's about a shrink who goes deep into his patients minds, deeper than anyone ever has. Then what happens is awesome.

    You won't put it down!

    After really enjoying Eleven O'clock Fright by Joshua Scribner, I wanted to pick up another one of his books and found this one to be even better. This is a fast-moving novel that traps you in the minds of its characters, wondering what their fate might be. Scribner moves the story along, never going into unnecessary detail that could distract from the plot. In a word--outstanding!

    Better than Eleven O'clock Fright

    After liking Eleven O'clock Fright so well I picked up this one. The characters don't have the same intimate feel as Eleven O'clock Fright but there was a constant sense of tension that kept me turning pages. Then when the bad stuff came it really came. The creep out factor was very high and there was some sort of exploratory fascination. This one will linger for a long time. A great book.
