This was the bloodiest of Eric Rickstad's books that I have read. A young man accidentally teams up with a illegal marijuana ring. May 29, 2019 Guylene Milner rated it liked it. Unlike Erics newer books I had a hard time grasping this one until midway through. Aug 28, 2017 Rick rated it it was amazing.

Like a cross between Denis Johnson's Already Dead and David Lynch's Blue Velvet, Reap draws us into the hot, still air of a summer backwoods at whose fringes lurk danger and epiphany. Jessup Burke, a lonely, naive sixteen-year old, has grown up without a father in a jobless, indifferent logging town. Out of high school a year early, he now bikes through the woods with his fishing gear, daydreaming of his sweetheart and their secret "home" in an abandoned farmhouse.

Innocent and confused, fatherless Vermont sixteen-year-old Jessup Burke prowls the woods around his logging hometown daydreaming of romance, but his life takes a turn when he meets an exploitative ex-con, Reg, and his younger married sister, Marigold. Reprint.
Spurred by poverty, lack of a decent upbringing or education, and stuck in small towns without any opportunity, the characters choose dangerous paths to fulfill dreams and escape their dismal surroundings. Each character's path collides with the other's as events spiral out of control. Some of their fates were not surprising; it was just a matter of time. A bit different storyline than The Silent Girls, yet still a decent read.
This "coming of age" novel set in the backwoods of Vermont showcases a promising young novelist who will likely get better as he masters his craft. His strong points are his ability to create vivid descriptive language and his ability to capture the essence of certain character types that undoubtedly can be found in rural New England. Sometimes his earnest attention to detail betrays him, however, as his attempt to include elements of New England natural history fall flat (e.g., his placing of a Snowy owl in the middle of a dense forest--highly unlikely).
That Eric Rickstad is young and still learning is evidenced, however, by the curious pacing of the story. The first half of the book "sets the stage" for the events that follow, and at times the substitution of description and nuance for actual story line becomes bothersome. During last half of the book, however, the action, including generous doses of blood, gore, humiliation and heartbreak, is practically nonstop. Ultimately, the book's plot resembles pulp fiction more than it does "great literature," and the "coming of age" theme is eclipsed, sadly, by the book's sizable body count.
If you've got the stomach, this is a fabulous novel. It's full of real characters living real, and depressing, lives. The novel is not completely without hope and it is not a depressing read, mainly because of Rickstad's talented storytelling. What makes Reap so interesting is not so much the story, but the telling of the story. The novel centers around Jessup, a young fatherless teenage boy, spending his summer just drifting around, fishing, riding his bike, until he meets up with Reg, a recent ex-con with a crop of marijuana he wants to protect, and many enemies. Rickstad explores the lives of his characters and brings them to life. His depiction of their lives rings true, there is no sugarcoating, there is no contrived happy ending. Just talented writing, wonderful storytelling.
In the novel, a naive boy is drawn into a seedy world of pot dealers, feuds, revenge and murder.
The scenes and characters are so vividly written you can almost smell sweat and blood and feel blows landing.
The characters are unusual, sometimes revolting, but mesmerizing nonetheless.
I enjoy Mr. Rickstad's writing; however, I found the overall story for this book to be limited. I was looking for more of a mystery, like what was present in the first books of his that I read. This one was interesting but seemed much slower than those other books. I did enjoy the ending but found the build up to be too slow and ponderous.
This book was totally different from the last book written by Eric Rock star.
I found it be be too depressing and overly violent for my taste.
I Will say,it was very descriptive
Fast paced page turner. The character development is absorbing. The setting is a place none of us would like to go. I kept wanting my favorite new aquintances to make better choices. I found myself thinking, "Oh no don't do that!".
Loved this book..it was just as thrilling as i expected.
