Mr. Nicholson proves that there is still more to investigate with the idea of "others" walking among us, taking us over. And he explores that idea beautifully. This novel does an amazing job of describing the changes in the residents of Windshake, the transitions that they go through as they change from the friends and neighbors we always knew into something that wants to get to know us much . . . much . . . better. Mr. Nicholson's descriptions of the evolving (or is it devolving?) characters is absolutely chilling, but still holds a certain grotesque appeal as more and more organic textures begin to run rampant through the town.
And who could expect a world-destroying alien from the icy-cold, soul-sucking darkness of space that could turn out to be more human than some of the people in the book?
An excellent read, all around!
Having said that, in my opinion the Harvest has a few critical flaws:
- The descriptions in child-speak of the internal thoughts of the alien were too numerous and by about the halfway point were annoying me to the point where I just started skipping entire pages.
- The last couple chapters were too short and I felt could have used more fleshing out. It had the shell of the action, but too much wasn't even explained properly ("Wait, did he die or what? What happened to the girl?")
- The final discussion on the alien seemed to sum up in a way that seemed to hint that the entire story was irrelevant, which is a weird way to leave it. I felt, oddly, like I was being told outright *by the author* that I wasted my time reading this book.
Maybe worth a read if you absolutely love Stephen King, but otherwise I would give it a pass.
and not a stinker in the lot. Great storyteller, flushes out the characters very well, paints the word picture like an artiste, and gives me the
heebie jeebies. Will continue to search out his work.
