2012: Winter Harvest
2012: Winter Harvest

4.0 out of 5 stars A glimpse of the end of the world, January 5, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I don't remember if the short story disclaimer was there when I bought
"Winter Harvest", but I have followed Ms. Andrews written work across many genres
including the somewhat depraved "Intelligent Design" and the nightmare-inducing
"Redaction". I have always found her characters "fleshed-out" and the story lines easy to follow and well crafted.

Winter Harvest is a short story describing one day at the end of humanity. Space creatures have decimated
our species and rendered useless all efforts to fight back. The only thing the
remaining people can do is scavenge and hide. It isn't a story of epic battles,
but the most primitive instinct in man - flight from certain extinction. The story tells in brief but chilling detail (ie-the creatures break the windows to get to the chewy center
and names are for tombstones) the single turning point in the quest for human
survival.

Could there be an entire book written around the events described in this short story (which is how I
interpreted the comment at the end of the book)? Absolutely. Does there need to
be? No. I was satisfied with the ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars A vision of life under siege, December 22, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Redaction paints a vivid picture of life after an infectious disease wipes out 1/3 of the population. The fear and sense of loss is palpable. Some characters rise to the challenge of the new world order while others sink to the lowest level of humanity. It was hard to put it down but harder still to turn out the lights after reading it. The groundwork for a sequel is clearly laid down. I can't wait to see how it all turns out.

5.0 out of 5 stars This ghostly adventure is a fun days pleasure!, October 15, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Fiona Gray heads to England with the ghost of her late fiance, Milton, and her bullwhip, Alice, to find out what happened to her missing Uncle and Aunt. Thus begins this funny, fast paced adventure of an American heiress, her dead fiance and an English Earl. Andrews has captured the "spirit" of the times very well. The descriptions of the docks, the balls and the life of 1890 England ring true. The mystery is well developed and a real page turner. There is no shortage of potential villains. The love triangle between the broke but proud Earl of Bookingham, the invisible Milton and Fiona make for very funny scenes in the book. This is a must read for lovers of a period novels.

5.0 out of 5 stars Be careful what you wish for....., September 15, 2008

This fast paced and funny book is a wonderful story about the difference between what we wish for in life and what might genuinely makes us happy. Hannah is a woman with a definite goal in life - not to lead her parent's humdrum life. Yet as I read the story I found myself rooting for the underdog, Alistar, whose "boring" life she rejects. The story is interesting and has plenty of suprizes. A great book for a fall night!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wish Granted, April 11, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: A Knight's Wish (Paperback)
What a wonderful "night's" entertainment! I didn't want to put the book down to answer the phone. Kaylee is a wonderful character and we are cheering her on throughout her struggle to hang on to her home despite adversity. The author provides us with a humorous look at the rapid transition from the Middle Ages to the present time experienced by our time traveling knight and his companions. I only wish there were more books like this out there.
