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.

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.

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.

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

So far my favorite.

Dr Who

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.
