Reviews - What do customers think about Fatal Harvest (Fatal Harvest Series #1)?
Really Bad Story! Sep 28, 2008
This story is really, really BAD! The situations are so far-fetched as to be unbelievable, and the characters are flat and one-dimensional. Additionally, the reader overacts the characters.
However, the absolute last and fatal flaw for me was the unexpected Christian theme running throughout this book. I believe that if the book contains a Christian theme the cover or back cover should contain that information. To spring this on the reader without giving even a hint that there is a Christian theme is false advertising at best, and downright deliberate deception of the buying public at worst.
Shame on you, Brilliance Audio! You should indicate to the prospective buyer if an audiobook contains a Christian, or Muslim, or Jewish, or any religious theme!
Please someone shoot me and put me out of my misery Mar 1, 2006
This may have been the single worst audio book I have ever listened to. I could not relate to the shallow characters, and the plot was not realistic enough to be believed.
The whole premise is rather weak anyway, if some kid had a deep secret about "Big evil food coporations" just email it to all the major newspapers. I mean really...
will remind readers of Rachel Carson�s SILENT SPRING Sep 4, 2003
Though the Ivy League schools want Artesia High School, Texas student Matthew Strong to enroll, the computer guru is obsessed with finding a way to end world hunger. In his quest to turn Malthus on his head, Matt scrutinizes the files of Agrimax, one of the major international food suppliers where he finds abominable goings on at the expense of starving people. When a friend is killed, Matt flees to France desperately hoping to find an ally in the International Federation for Environmental and Economic Development (I-FEED).
Matt's widower father rancher Cole had been distant from his son, but loves him deeply. He panics when Matt vanishes and turns to the only person he believes might have an inkling of where the lad is and what trouble he is in, his computer teacher Jill Pruitt. They hope to save Matt's life from those who want him silenced. Meanwhile, the teen meets Madam Losieau. Will she be the ticket for him to provide his data to the Chair of I-FEED located in the Sudan or is she a double agent ready to feed him to his enemies?
FATAL HARVEST will remind readers (at least older ones) of Rachel Carson's environmental wake up call SILENT SPRING. The novel emphasizes making aware the plight of the world's hungry and exposing the avariciousnese of the mega agricultural conglomerates. The story line is extremely exciting in a David vs. Goliath manner with the sling shot and stones being a computer. Though the Madam Losieau link seems stretched, fans will appreciate this global bringing to light the international problem of world hunger packaged inside an action-packed thriller.
Fatal Harvest Aug 26, 2003
Sixteen-year-old Matthew Strong has the perfect topic for his term paper, unfortunately his research leads him into more trouble than he can handle. Matt's paper focuses on one company, Agrimax, who are hiding a secret they do not want revealed. A secret they will do anything to keep under wraps, including murder.
When Matt disappears, his father, Cole, is beside himself with worry and turns to Matt's computer teacher, Jill Pruitt. Soon Matt's source of information is murdered and the police believe Matt killed him. Jill and Cole set off on an international trek with Matt's best friend, Billy, hoping to find Matt and prove his innocence before the bad guys get hold of him.
In a fast-paced adventure that keeps you on your toes, follow Matt as he travels to Mexico, France and finally Sudan, where the action comes to an exhilarating conclusion. Greed, money and power set the stage for FATAL HARVEST, and in reality it becomes a game of good versus evil. Matt is merely a teenager going up against a powerful conglomerate. While there is a touch of romance, Catherine Palmer focuses mainly on suspense and proves she is at the top of her game.
To me, the only downfall I can find with this book is that the conclusion seemed abrupt. However as FATAL HARVEST is the first in Ms. Palmer's new adventure series, readers may see Matt, Cole, Jill and Billy in the future. This reader certainly hopes so!
