    Maybe his best

    This might be the best book by Scribner. Jonah Singer is the main character. Very tense guy and kind of cool, but supporting character Tate Powers steals the show. Tate's kind of one of those creepy in your head types who you don't know whether to love or hate. I was disappointed for awhile when Tate was out of the book, but he makes a grand appearance at the end. Otherwise, this was a good book with an interesting concept.

    You'll wonder why you do the things you do

    The main character in this books has all kinds of psychological issues. When they start to fall away you get to see the higher purpose they served. A scary and thoughtful book.

    One of his better novels.

    Of all Joshua Scribner's book, this one stands out. It's probably the second or third best, behind A Haunting Beauty and maybe Eleven O'clock Fright. It has Jonah Singer who'se neurtic out of his mind, and Tatum Powers, who's craze in a whole different, almost psychopath kind of way. It'll keep you guesing till the end.

    Improvement

    I read this book when it was call Bone Song. Then I read it again as Seed. Bone Song was good, but there was definately some editing done for this reissue. It moves faster, because you're not stopping for mistakes or writing that doesn't flow. I'd say it went from a four to a five.

    Psychological masterpiece

    If you like horror, and like to get deep into the minds of characters, then you have to read Scribner. In Seed, he delves into the mind of Jonah Singer, a psychologist who'se a little bit crazy himself. Jonah is befriended by another shrink who helps him start get rid of his problems, but then something else comes out. So good!

    Joshua Scribner remains what of the hidden gyms of the horror genre. He tends to be more idea focused than character focused. This book is an exception to that rule. It's about the very tightly wound Jonah Singer and the unraveling of his problems and addictions. Beyond that  is what lies beneath when all these trouble are cleared out. The spice of this book is supporting character Tatum, who is downright  visceral in his solidarity. It's kind of a short novel, but you'll think about it when you're done.

    Although this story kept me reading, I wanted a little more from it. There were some aspects of creepy psychological phenomenon, and plenty of speculation about the cause of the creepiness. The characters are likable, and leave you wanting to know more about them. However, I thought the ending was rushed and it sort of cheated us out of the horror/creepy factor. I did find this book interesting though, and its worth a read.

    Intense!

    A strong psychological horror story. The dynamics between the two main characters keep you reading until the end. It's an end with a twist.

    The book was good even though at first I wondered exactly what this book was about. You won't get the exact answer until almost the end of the book. I felt the ending was very rushed but still a good book overall.
