Genetically Modified Conspiracy

The story is X-Files meets Invasion of the Body Snatchers with The Thing thrown in for good measure. Nothing good can come from Big Pharma and Big Agro in cahoots with desperate, ruthless aliens. And when the aliens exist among us undetected in strategic government and law enforcement positions... what can stop them? Season of Harvest has an interesting premise centering on the real life explosion of genetically modified food. There is action and some suspense but the story is somewhat weakened by the "romance" of the two main characters which seems forced. There are other parts that also did not feel genuine to me, like the missile silo/research stations. And I did not ‘feel’ the cat angle either. It was well worth my time and credit but it left me feeling it could have been better. Overall a 3.7.

WOW!! Orginal Plot That Will Have You Thinking!

What made the experience of listening to Season of the Harvest the most enjoyable?

Not what I thought the book would be and that was refreshing, even if it was a little scary.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The FBI agent, Jack and the cats. I'm a cat lover so I enjoyed the author giving cats an important role in the story.

Have you listened to any of Edward E. French’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but he was good. He kinda added to the "errie" tone of the story.

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

Yes, I will never look at food and what we can do with it, the same. It gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "You are what you eat!"

Any additional comments?

I was shocked at how much I really enjoyed this book and the storyline is something everyone would enjoy. Buy the book, I am sure you will enjoy too!!

Excellent beginning to the trilogy!

I gave this a second read to refresh my memory before starting book 2. It was a good the 2nd time as the first. I can't wait to see what comes next!

Surprising

Would you consider the audio edition of Season of the Harvest to be better than the print version?

No, just more convenient .

What about Edward E. French’s performance did you like?

Love his voice, his inflections where spot on making the book much more enjoyable.

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

Hard time turning it off, which is not good for work.

Pleasantly surprised

I bought this during one of the sales. Sounded interesting but really didn't know what to expect. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. It has a Dan Brown-ish flare with suspense and intrigue. I guess now I will just have to finish the trilogy. The narrator was pleasant and it was pretty easy to distinguish the characters. I would recommend if you like mystery and suspense with a little sci-fi thrown in for good measure. Not a huge sci-fi fan but this was actually done subtly and believably.

Awesome work. Mr. Hicks has outdone himself again.

Excellent story line and fantastic character development. You find yourself hanging on every word wondering what happens next.

would be a great movie

this was a good action adventure type story how long the lines of Jurassic Park or other Crichton books. the author made enough detail to make the story pretty believable even know it was way out there in terms of the basic premise. I love the aliens or creatures trying to destroy the world theme , and GMOs where a good route for the story. I don't happen to believe GMOs are really a threat of any kind to anybody but it was still good for a fiction story. the reader was excellent and fit the characters well enough.

Substitute Monsanto for New Horizons

This audio recording had me riveted from the opening sentence until the very end. It is a work of well written science fiction, yet aside from the whole alien theory, there is a kernel of truth to it that eating GMO's can be fatal to the planet.
I recommend this book.

shme, full of rubber stamped phrases

one of those books that you have heard a million times, but with a slightly innovative storyline. oddly feels like the book has been written on the basis of a film, it is full of Hollywood rubber stamps and clinches
