Publisher's Summary

In Harvest, the book that introduced us to Tess Gerritsen's unique blend of medical expertise, harrowing suspense, and brilliantly crafted plot twists, the dark side of medical research is exposed. Harvest vividly portrays a young woman doctor challenging a world where medical miracles and greed fuel a lethal conspiracy - and the bright lights of the O.R. conceal the ultimate corruption of genius.

©1996 Tess Gerritsen (P)2011 Simon & Schuster Audio

    Any additional comments?

    Narrated by George Guidall, twelve hours of listening.

    A beautiful young doctor is the center character of Harvest. Abby is a talented doctor who succumbs to the lure of the ‘transplant team’ of her hospital. It doesn’t take long for Tess Gerritsen to embroil the reader in a terrific plot along the lines of Robin Cook’s Coma. Organs are being harvested in a manner that will chill the reader to the bone!

    George Guidall, it goes without saying, is absolutely brilliant.

    If you like medical thrillers, you’ll love this story. Enjoy!

    Story
    "Plot is Over the Top, but an Enjoyable Listen"

    What starts out as a very plausible story line devolves into a rather unimaginable plot. . . but then, isn't that what fiction can/should be? Truthfully, I'd be engaged with any book read by George Guidall. . . love his voice, inflections and perfected pausing and pacing. A believable medical mystery it is not. But a fun listen, it is.

    "Excellent murder mystery"

    This was my first Tess Gerritsen novel. And I loved it! I am a nurse and the details are accurate without going into too much depth so it stayed interesting. I was afraid it might get too gruesome, but she takes you to the edge without going too far. The character development is great and the narrator excellent. You can really visualize what is happening.

    "Not bad"

    I wasn't thrilled with the narration. Also, if you have a medical background, you will find yourself questioning all sorts of medical decisions, practices and procedures. Good book for a layperson.

    Story
    "I couldn't get through it"
    Would you try another book from Tess Gerritsen and/or George Guidall?

    I usually like Tess Gerritsen books but I couldn't get through this one. I guess I see it as a manufactured thriller with pointless twists.


    Has Harvest turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. Maybe this one did not resound with me.


    What aspect of George Guidall’s performance would you have changed?

    George Guidall is my favorite narrator. I chose this book because he was narrating it.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment

    "Couldn't stop listening"
    If you could sum up Harvest in three words, what would they be?

    Kept me listening


    What did you like best about this story?

    The rapid pace of the story


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He's the best narrator you have - I can really "feel" the characters he narrates.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely


    Any additional comments?

    This was a really good medical thriller with characters you could relate ot.

    "Very Entertaining"

    Really enjoyed the story and the performer, just wish the space between chapters wasn't so long, but understandable sense it's older then most. But Overall I loved it and plan on listening to more by this writer.

    Story
    "Pretty Interesting"
    Where does Harvest rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Middle of the road, not the best, but far from the worst.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character, she showed grit and determination, albeit there were times when she did get a bit out of control, crossed lines most wouldn't. Made you think either she was really bold or really stupid.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    The voice range, did males and females pretty good.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No
