    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

    "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.

    This is my favorite!! I read this years ago and loved it, but wanted to listen to it to. Well worth it!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tess is amazing at keeping you at the edge of your seat. The characters were brought to life, and love or hate for them is well developed.

    Didnt really have a favorite, they were all great!


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    So far my favorite.


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

    Yes it was so good I couldnt stop.

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

    About the middle (3.5)


    Would you recommend Harvest to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, It's a medical thriller and my friends like that kind of suspense.


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes I have, he's top notch. One of the best. I think I have listened to 15+ stories he has narrated.


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

    No, It's kind of a quwissey subject, I had to put it down and wait till the next day to get into it again. I lke good old fashioned Murder stories. Tess G. is an excellant writer, I really like her style, The love story in this one taints it a little.

    "Rather chilling"

    This book really sucked me in because the premise is so believable. We all assume that out doctors are above reproach, but what if they are motivated by something other then the desire to heal?!
