They will have a rating, first thought, narrator thought (quick), and will officially be filed 🙂  Listened for Fun (Audible) Overall Rating: 4.00 Story Rating: 3.75 Character Rating: 4.25 Audio Rating: 4.00 (not part of the overall rating) First Thought when Finished: The Harvesting is a story that grew on me over the course of the story and I am very curious as to where it is heading! Quick Thoughts: This was a Dewey’s Read-a-Thon listen and I was scared in the beginning that I had selected wrong.

What I liked:  Most of the characters were really well thought out.  Each one flushed out just enough by the author that you could understand their motivations and personalities.  You weren’t sitting there at any point going “no way he/she would have done that”.  Some of the characters are quite shocking though, so be prepared for that. What I thought was “sorta ok”: The financial part of the story was not all that thrilling, at least from my point of view.  It was kind of like 2 books in one, like it was hard to decide which one the author really wanted to write.  I could have done without “LS” rape scene, it was a little too graphic for me but it was a significant reason she does a lot of things. What I didn’t like:  Nothing really.  Thought the beginning […]
