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
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.

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!!
