To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I've loved Fracassi's writing for some time, but this compilation takes things to a new level. Brilliant storytelling, fascinating characters and situations. I'll be reading all of Fracassi's books from now on. Highly recommended.
There are some very powerful and disturbing images in these stories. Waking up under a building that collapsed in an earthquake, being friends with death, watching a plane just miss your Ferris wheel are just a few that you won’t forget easily.
That being said; the final image from the last story was a perfect way to end the book. A most positive and encouraging note.
I really enjoyed Fracassi’s last collection, Behold the Void, and this follow up does not disappoint. Fracassi is skilled at blending horror with a more literary style. “Harvest” was a stand out for me.
I only read the first 3 stories. I wanted to like them, but the characters and situations followed an obvious pattern: girl in love, or finding love, trouble finding her, and she finding a way out of trouble. Plus they were unnecessarily long reads. Not for me.
