A bizarre blend of The Lottery, The Hunger Games and The Giver.

Terrible, I read the first few chapters and then skipped to the last chapter. The writing seems quick, it repeats alot and gives away what is going to happen ( narrative) then the part that was foretold plays out. Dumb all around.

Dark Harvest by Norman Partidge is one of those novels that deserves to be read long into the night, under the covers. This short novel, about a strange ritual in a Midwestern town in the 1960s, reads like Shirley Jackson crossed with early Stephen King. Partridge delivers the chills without stooping to descriptions of gore - check this one out.

Overall interesting imagery and mood but something was missing. I think part of it is that since none of the characters nor anything about the town was particularly likeable it was difficult to care about them, whether or not they were killed or if the town was destroyed. In fact you wanted everything and everyone to be destroyed. Maybe that’s the point of the book. If it is then it falls a little flat. The author tried too hard to make everyone and everything (including the writing style) so “cool” that the characters became unbelievable and the descriptions became annoying and contrived in parts: “an hour and change ago”, “He runs into the night…, no matter how fast he humps it,…”, “As he keys the engine”, “rip a U-bender”, “And then it’s like someone shook the whole damn world and popped the cap”, He boosted Mitch Crenshaw’s ride” are some examples of this (and some of these occur on the same page). All characters seemed to have similar, mostly unbelievable personalities. It’s hard to believe absolutely everyone in an extremely isolated small town in Middle America in the early 1960’s would be so street wise/savvy and jaded.
