Red Harvest is not what I expected. I couldn’t really tell you what I expected because I don’t know, but I do know that Red Harvest was different, or unique. I enjoyed the book, mostly for the details and the way it draws you in. Like I said in my earlier post, while reading the book I felt like I was actually there. I felt like I knew what it was like to live during that time period. I love how this “Continental Op” was so mysterious. I didn’t have to know his name, or really that many details about him, but I still felt like I knew him. Not as a friend but more. I was able to get inside his brain and to see what he was thinking, and for that reason I felt like I knew him that much better. It is amazing how a writer can leave out so many details, yet be able to create such an intriguing and amazing story. I thoroughly enjoyed readingRed Harvest, not for the story as much, but for the way it was written.
