5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling Feb. 22 2012
By Apple Girl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I completed Viral Times in less than a week after I purchased it. I felt compelled to finish. The disturbing future of super intelligent viruses that cause humans to acquire mutated AIDs through casual touch is haunting. And this horror becomes more disturbing because the characters' emotional and sexual needs for each other are profound and lyrical. I love the allusions to Tolle's Now and Cash's music. The story left me with a new respect for the eastern focus on the body's self-healing powers as opposed to our western approach of creating chemicals to kill viruses.
I am impressed with the eloquent focus on underlying, universal love that crosses lines of sexual orientation. And I love the graphic reminders of crimes committed in the name of organized religion.
This book and the lead character Dayton will not be forgotten.

A twisted story one won't soon forget. Viral Times is a fascinating novel with unique characters and an unpredictable plot that kept me turning the pages.

3.0 out of 5 stars Editorial Reviews are a scam Oct. 13 2012
By Fu Arock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The book was okay. The editorial reviews recommending this book are a joke. Same reviews over and over, some attributed to different "reviewers".

5.0 out of 5 stars A Thought Provoking, Yet Fun read Sept. 14 2012
By John & Ann Burke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Seybold takes the reader to a dystopian near-future where insurance and drug companies have teamed up; yet where the human race is in danger of being wiped out by ever more intelligent and virulent viruses. People are afraid of human contact and resort to virtual reality sex. The book has a dashing male hero, who just happens to be a reporter (Ron's alter ego?), and a heroine steeped in eastern and Native American mysticism, mythology and homeopathic medicine. Throw in a far right religious wing nut and you have the perfect stew. Viral Times is thought provoking, yet a fun read - the perfect combination.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent Thriller March 5 2012
By J. Wolk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Finished with my kids' Hunger Games trilogy, I am reading more books about futuristic societies. The questions they pose always lead to lively dinner table and book club conversations. The compelling premise of Viral Times does not disappoint. In addition, Seybold's background infuses his main character with gritty, journalistic authority and a distinctive voice. In particular, I appreciate how Seybold orchestrates a confluence of science, religion and humanity within a believable futuristic framework. Viral Times would make a fascinating movie.
