Audible Editor Reviews

Fifty years after the first Harvest drove mankind underground, fearful for their lives, a group of brave souls set out to destroy the sea-dwelling harvesters before they can terminate all of humanity. David Dunwoody's imaginative saga not only creates an intriguing villain in the monstrous brain-eating harvesters, but also gives the survivors some terrifying obstacles like killer robots and a lobotomized police force, further complicating their plans. Al Dano's clear and methodical performance allows Dunwoody's complex narrative to unfold, an important stylistic choice that nevertheless invites a creepy uneasiness.

Publisher's Summary

It has been fifty years since the first Harvest. Hideous creatures, lethal and lightning-fast, were sown into the beds of Earth's oceans eons ago. Now every year, in service to a mad god, they rise from the depths and hunt humans.

Man hides underground in fear of the Harvesters. But he is also sought by other predators: the robots that for years were his companions are now driven to exterminate him in a warped mission of mercy.

In a race against time, a group of humans cross the United States in a desperate plot to destroy the Harvesters before the next cycle. As if psychotic robots, lobotomized cops and flesh-eating nomads weren't enough of a challenge, they may just invoke the wrath of the ancient god itself...

    "Straight up Horror"

    The Harvest Cycle was an interesting and unique take on the post-apocalypse genre that I really enjoyed. For some reason, even thought the summary makes no mention of them, was expecting zombies in on form or another. The closest I got were cannibals, which are more frightening that I ever thought they would be in an audiobook, also making an appearance were androids, monsters, supernatural beings. The plot develops quickly and had me hooked right away, with the plethora of interesting and intense characters. One phrase or term that made me laugh out loud when I first heard it, and I will never forget, referring to a particular part of the brain as “dream meat”. Need I say more? Other than I will be seeking out other audiobooks by Dunwoody in the not so distant future.

    I hated Al Dano’s narration a first, thinking that he wasn’t going to be able to captivate me nearly as much as others have. Not sure what I was thinking there. Dano performed perfectly, adding the appropriate amount of emotion or lack of emotion where needed. With so many different creature types and human demographics that were thrown at him, Dano proceeded without missing a beat.
