    " Human nature at its best/worse. Dark tale set in English countryside 1800's. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Raimo Wirkkala | 2/4/2014

    " A well-written story about the collision of different ways of life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 1/8/2014

    " The arrival of three strangers in a quiet agrarian village presages the dissolution of the villagers' way of life in Crace's beautiful new novel. Elegant, gentle prose transports the reader to the pastoral stillness of the story's pre-industrial landscape, while human missteps and manipulations propel the plot forward. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carol | 1/3/2014

    " I would give this book 4.5 stars if I could, because while the writing was stellar, the story (and main character) lacked a wee bit. So....First of all, the writing is amazing. Honestly, I felt like I was swimming in beautiful poetic descriptions of everything in the book. It was like experiencing the most beautiful painting, but Jim Crace uses words. I cannot say enough about the writing! On the other hand, the main character of the book was a bit of an oddball and the story, while engaging, came to a bit of an unsatisfying end. Not that books should all have happy endings, but this was was just weird. Perhaps the main character was going slowly crazy? I don't know. But I would make everyone read it just for the beauty and poetry of the writing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 12/29/2013

    " Well paced, thoughtful and introspective without navel gazing, and poetic while remaining grounded. Timeless, despite the medieval setting. Comforting, despite the violence and death. It is an extremely simple book, which is the most complex kind of all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Justine | 8/25/2013

    " Brilliant. Beautifully written, has you hooked from start to finish. Amazing attention to detail. I highly recommend it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eileen | 8/22/2012

    " I would give this 3 and 1/2 stars. Slow paced but interesting story about a time and place we don't usually encounter in books today.A story about consequences and fateful actions. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julia | 6/16/2012

    " This is the first book by Crace that I have read. He is an amazing writer. The plot, the descriptions of the land and the emotions were beautifully done. I'm looking forward to reading more of his books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pcox | 4/21/2012

    " The story lacked a lot of the layers may other authors writing about this time period and setting use to develop the story. I didn't feel like I wasted time but wouldn't recommend. "

    " I'm a huge fan of this author and I don't think I could mark anything by her lower than 4 stars. She uses amazing imagery, her characters are well developed, and she has an excellent way of keeping the reader turning the pages, on the edge of their seats. Harvest is no different. "
