Harvest: A Novel 3.7 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 7 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
I think this might be one of the most perfect novels I have ever read. Stylistically gorgeous; every sentence is high literature, without being effusive or heavy handed. There is the wonderful historical referent--the clearing of the commons, the dawning of capitalism proper. There is the remarkable complexity of characters: no real heroes, not even the narrator; a few villains; the cowardice of the agricultural laborers who work, and the heedless greed of those who own, the land. A murder mystery, a microscopic historical novel, an existential exploration of one man's perspective on the end of a land-bound way of life. I said it in another review, but Jim Crace is the Flaubert of our time.

Beautifully written. As a child brought up on a rather hard scrabble farm among people who tilled the soil and worked hard for little, this book reminded me of that time. But it I harsh, and in some ways frightening, a sad.
