      Again I heard the cry, and I approached, circling the tree until I was looking at it from the opposite side From gnarled roots to blasted top, the large trunk was split open, a dark wound where a bolt of lightning had rent it apart and fire had burned its center out, leaving it hollow A mesh of thick vines grew upward from the base, crawling along the withered trunk, sutures trying to close the gaping wound where the sides lay back like flaps of charred flesh The wind streamed through the gap, t [...]

      This book was incredible It was beautifully written and paced The story successfully blends mankind s or perhaps womankind s oldest themes with small town New England life in the most creepy atmosphere possible A slow burning tale involving a move from the city to a simple country life ruled by the land These characters, the locals, were multi layered and fascinating This is an example of why horror literature that s right, I called it literature , became so popular in America in the 80 s Author [...]

      Harvest Home is an immersive experience above all things A small family moves to the small village of Cornwall Coombe strange things eventually occur Eventually Although marketed and designed as a slow burning horror novel, the pleasures I took from this book were almost totally unconnected to the horror When the horror comes after hundreds of pages it is wrenching and brutal But before that, Tryon really gets inside this village, inside of its people and traditions and all of the interactions a [...]

      While rehabbing his new three hundred year old house and adjusting to country life from The Big Apple, Ned feels there is something not quite right in the small town of Cornwall Coombe and is determined to get to the bottom of it all costs Together with mysterious deaths and the screaming skull apparition in the cornfield, Ned begins to question his own sanity as well as the Old Widow Fortune s medicinal elixirs When the whole town turns against him and his modern ways, he unfortunately learns t [...]

      I d give it three and a half stars if I could The book is very good and has a timelessness that I don t often find in novels as old as this one 1973 , but ultimately it suffers from two problems that prevent me from giving it four or five stars First, it just takes too long to get to the real meat of the narrative The narrator doesn t begin to suspect the town is sinister than it appears until almost three quarters of the book 300 pages have passed Tryon s prose is engaging, but his pacing isn [...]

      I wasn t sure if I d be able to write this review, because after I finished Harvest Home, I curled into a fetal position and stayed there for three days Ordinarily, I would have welcomed the chance to rest, but there is no rest for readers of this book Just delicious, unrelenting insomnia I don t scare easily, but when I do, it s thrilling There s no cure for 21st century malaise like sheer terror And Harvest Home is terrifying in its tone, imagery, and plot I m surprised Tom Tryon isn t as well [...]

      This is my Book Of the Month September 2016 with GR group Horror AficionadosA very reluctant 3 stars as I can say I did like it, kind ofThere were many times while reading this when I felt I just don t want to go on but I had heard that there is a great twist at the end which is worth reading So was this worth reading Well, the ending is definitely weird and had me creeped out Even when I finished this and few days had passed by, thinking about the ending and what all happened made me feel sad f [...]

      This book remains one of the most unsettling ones I ve read, due to the way the horror creeps up on you When you consider the year this book was written, it shows that Tryon really captured something unique for his time.Re read 11 2014 rating stands at 5 stars.

    9. Obsidian on said:

      I first read this about forty years ago and really loved it I have long wanted to reread it to see if it could withstand the test of time of if my memory was playing tricks on me Fortunately, the GR Horror Aficionados group chose it as their selection for September It was an excellent way to usher in autumn Ned and Beth Constantine decide to quit the rat race and retire to the country but have trouble finding just the right place for them until they stumble upon Cornwall Coombe, a picturesque Ne [...]

      A small agrarian town in New England was the setting for my second novel by Thomas Tryon The citizens of Cornwall Coombe plant corn, but also worship the planting and harvest times, as did the ancients in the time of the goddess Demeter HARVEST HOME is set in 1970, and even though there are cars and televisions in the village, you might imagine that you have been transported back to the 19th century Farming without tractors and folks traveling by horse and buggy are still commonplace in Cornwall [...]

    12. Rebecca McNutt on said:

      Creepily creative and extremely well written, Harvest Home dives into the quaint small town atmosphere and turns it into a nightmare Definitely worth reading if you re a horror fan.

      Dude has some talent as a writer but dear god this was a slow moving story I had to DNF halfway through If it were any slower I could have accidentally traveled back in time I can t risk that right now.

    14. Addy on said:

      Man this book was awesome It had that magical feel in the beginning that was just beautiful and mysterious Though slow with the scares, when it finally came it hit you like a ton of bricks The mystery of Grace Everdeen had me guessing throughout and the ending is sure to blow your mind, even though it was predictable Thomas Tryon was a great treasure to find within the horror genre I continue to be entertained with his books and I certainly won t look at corn the same way nor will I envy simple [...]

      About 10 years ago, we were driving to a small town in western PA to visit a friend s brother s glass blowing studio At some point we made a wrong turn and wound up on a rather neat looking street with perfectly mowed lawns, historic houses with large, comfortable appearing front porches, and even an occasional picket fence or so While beautiful and charming, it struck me that this was the sort of neighborhood that was its own community, and that they may not be so friendly towards outsiders We [...]

    17. Mike (the Paladin) on said:

      I ll give this 2 stars as it is very well written but I only give it 2 stars as I don t care for this type of book If you want a creeping belly drop horror with no redeeming qualities or anything uplifting in the ending to relieve the stress, only one that leaves the horror intactis is your book.It s not mine.I read this at a time of what might be called undue stress anyway and it effected me very badly I ve got to say that due to the combination of the book story and the situation I was in this [...]

    18. Andrea Petrullo on said:

      I was pretty dissapointed with Harvest Home It wasn t bad, but I had hoped for better I read it because I d heard the original Wicker Man movie was loosley based on it The story itself moved pretty slowly, which I can deal with, but Tryon s long tangents about painting and scenery had me bored to tears, and I found myself skipping over paragraphs at a time Beyone that, the main character was really dumb It really bothered me The scene towards the end where he witnesses the secret ritual in the w [...]

    19. Randolph Carter on said:

      A good tale well told Nothing profound just good clean fun in old school King McCammon mystery thriller horror style Everyone is in on the joke except the narrator kind of thing The ending is telegraphed early on so there are really no surprises but it becomes a page turner nonetheless.Tryon throws us one red herring in the Soakes but you see through it pretty early and then half way through he just hands it to you.The key to a novel like this is characterization We need to invest in certain cha [...]

      Didn t much care for this one, though I suspect it s a matter of where I m currently at than the book itself The writing is beautiful the setting is divine I did not care for any of the characters, sad to say And the story moves at a snail s pace The first 250 pages or so are an absolute chore, Tryon s marvelous descriptive skills aside I love this author s other bestseller, The Other that one is quite possibly my favorite horror novel period , so I hate that I couldn t really groove on Harvest [...]

    21. Marian on said:

      I still might change this to a 5 star.This is one of the best books I have read and its all because of a recommendation by my Friend SkyeThank you Dear Lady Tryon seduces readers into a sense of contentment, then slaps them in the face with unspeakable horror As we readers, along with the main character, slowly unravel a mystery, we become totally immersed in this page turner written in 1973,

    22. Steve on said:

      Alright all you nay Sayers and can I give this negative star idiotsPut yourself in the shoes of readers 40 years ago This was what city folk were doing in droves back theney were tired of the hustle and bustle and wanted to experience country living so they moved out to, what we now call, the suburbs Eventually there were so many city folk moving to the country that the characters in this book died or assimilated This was an excellent portrait of country folk beating back and murdering those tha [...]

    23. SheriC (PM) on said:

      Some books have such compelling action that I get completely sucked in, reading to find out what s next, what s going to happen on that next page This is not that kind of book Instead, it is a slow burning, wonderfully atmospheric story that sucked me into the mysterious events and curious characters, so that I kept reading because I wanted to know , to mine the hints and subtleties to find out why people were doing and saying and events and stories were not matching up I am not a fast reader, a [...]

      Strange happenings in the New England farming village of Cornwall Coombe If you re a fan of the movies The Wicker Man and Children of the Corn, you might like this book, which has a similar theme I thought the book could ve been at least 100 pages shorter, as the pace was very slow in the first half of the book It picked up towards the end, though The characters were one dimensional, so I really wasn t invested in what happened to them Parts of the story were sexually explicit than I am comfort [...]

    25. Cphe on said:

      Well written although it took quite a while to get into the story itself Artist Ned Constantine his wife and daughter settle in the picturesque village of Cornwall Coombe Unfortunately appearances are deceptive and life in Cornwall Coombe proves to be anything but idyllic Didn t feel this was quite up to the standard of The Other also written by Tryon.

    26. Kevin Lucia on said:

      Slow burn, excellent writingbut had a hard time liking the protagonist as the story wound on This became one of those the ending is inevitable, and the protagonist has got nowhere to go but down ending Other than that, a good read.

    27. Rachel on said:

      WOW at this book it did not let me down I ll write later on my phone at the moment.

    28. Miranda on said:

      This book was recommended by a coworkerd wow I really didn t care for it It reminded me of the movie The Village It s a town that basically lives by thier own set of rules I enjoy suspense, but it kinda freaks me out when you could almost see this happening somewhere It s scary because it s not supernatual or anything Just people with strict beliefs and will destroy people who don t follow.

    29. Mauoijenn ~ *Mouthy Jenn* ~ on said:

      Wow This book was very well written.It s not a fast paced horror scary novel like today s author writes, but I liked how it came along.You totally get the creep vibe before anything really happens in this book.A must read for any horror fan.
