The Overstory submitted by kimberlybalk on July 10, 2019, 9:36am This book was powerful and illuminating.

Sequoia-like in its ambition submitted by amy on July 21, 2019, 11:02am A hefty novel, with an ambitious and compelling narrative structure. Powers takes on the daunting task of criticizing contemporary society in a grand lyrical style and with an intellectual rigor that breaks new ground in environmental fiction. Here trees play a central role, with their haunting presence and power to move humans to pathos, reverence, and action.

extraordinary writing, imagery submitted by 21621031390949 on August 30, 2019, 11:38pm This book is a tour de force of prose. It tells the stories of several disparate individuals and then weaves their stories together, but the beauty is in the telling. The writing is lush, rich, with each word chosen carefully. The information about trees and forests is so dense, one has to read and re-read to catch it all. It is magnificent.
