I really hate to write harsh reviews of books because I know what a tremendous amount of effort it takes just to finish a book and I admire anyone who is willing to devote so much time to the task but, I'm sorry, this one needs a lot more work.
This is potentially a good story but there is too much info-dump at the beginning and it's way too repetitive. Yes, I understand - the soil and their one crop is very important to these people. I get it. Can we just move on already?
In addition to the extremely slow beginning the book is ruined by obvious mistakes on almost every page. It's full of run-on sentences and punctuation mistakes, in particular, unnecessary commas that make reading it confusing. There are also a great many instances of the wrong word being used, for example "stock" when he clearly meant "stalk" and "weary" when he should have said "wary". These are just two of many, plus there were a lot of instances of the wrong tense being used, such as mixing up find and found. There were also a number of awkward or redundant sentences, such as "the effectiveness of the tools was less effective."
These are just a few of many mistakes. I frequently had to read sentences and paragraphs a second time to get the right sense of it. Overall it feels very amateurish. The story itself though has the potential to be interesting.
