    eBook The Overstory eBook ó õ areyoubetteroff.co õ overstory kindle, The Overstory KindleThe story that he tells of the complete dependence of humans on the forests of the world Is brilliantly told in a series of personal stories over several generations of different families These generational stories are then linked together as the forests of the world are linked together in their underground root systems This is a story that is brilliantly told and has made me look at trees and forests as their own living entity and not just a product to be exploited be that for their beauty timber medicines etc They are a living being in their own right and shou

    eBook The Overstory eBook ó õ areyoubetteroff.co õ overstory kindle, The Overstory KindleI tried to like it but couldn't gave up half way I found the writing style to result in much of the story having too little depth to be satisfying And there was a feeling that the characters were like caricatures There were bits that I did get absorbed by but not enough of them I also got irritated by the writers inability to resist collouialisms that were jarring to the flow

    eBook The Overstory eBook ó õ areyoubetteroff.co õ overstory kindle, The Overstory KindleI absolutely adored this novel and the intertwining stories of each of the protagonists It reminded me of my life long love of tress and inspired me to think about what am I doing to help protect them? Do we really want a world without old growth forests The engrossing characters and stories were an excellent way to deliver the urgent message of conservation and preservation Just loved it My favourite book this year

    eBook The Overstory eBook ó õ areyoubetteroff.co õ overstory kindle, The Overstory KindleThis book captivated me I don't think I will look at tree the same way again and nor should I The Overstory should be reuired reading for every politician leader and corporate CEO in the hope they will listen But failing that you reading my review would be a fantastic start

    eBook The Overstory eBook ó õ areyoubetteroff.co õ overstory kindle, The Overstory KindleI got lost in the undergrowth with this one Boring wordy and just plain unreadable Not that I claim to have read it; struggling through the first chapter skimming through even then giving up is not reading a book The last time I read a book I disliked as much as this was Midnight’s Children Thank god I don’t have to study The Overstory Not for me

    eBook The Overstory eBook ó õ areyoubetteroff.co õ overstory kindle, The Overstory KindleThis book was for our book club meeting otherwise I may not have read it Thoroughly enjoyed the story and the characters Beautifully written with much poetic imagery The only drawback was I found in the last few chapters of the book some repetition and hence felt it was a bit long Overall I recommend it as a great read about the importance of trees in the ecological scheme of our planet

    eBook The Overstory eBook ó õ areyoubetteroff.co õ overstory kindle, The Overstory KindleI think it's fair to say that when Richard Powers gets an idea he runs with it The Overstory is a novel about trees Every other sentence mentions a tree The main characters each have a signature tree And most of them converge to protect trees The structure of the book itself is designed to resemble a tree each character has a backstory that is a root; the stories converge in the longest section the trunk; the characters diverge again into the crown; and then in the smallest section they produce the seeds of a future worldAnd my goodness the book is long and involved Most of the eight roots stories featuring nine characters since two of them share a root figuratively and literally are novellas in their own right We have a retired war veteran; a student; an academic who works out that trees communicate; a computer games designer; an intellectual copyright lawyer; a conceptual artist; a young Chinese American; and a psychologist It should be a job of work to remember who they all are but

    eBook The Overstory eBook ó õ areyoubetteroff.co õ overstory kindle, The Overstory KindleI dithered between 2 and 3 stars for this one On the one hand I can appreciate it's a worthy book well written intelligent with some weighty and well meaning themes It seems to have touched a lot of people But the bottom line is I found it breathtakingly boring and breathed a sigh of relief to finish itIt starts with 9 vignettes all unrelated beyond that the characters in each have a connection with trees I uite enjoyed this part of the book even if I couldn't really see where it was going At times these short

    eBook The Overstory eBook ó õ areyoubetteroff.co õ overstory kindle, The Overstory KindleThe Overstory is the most ambitious book on the Man Booker Prize shortlist this year and I thought I would be moved and impressed by this epic Sadly for me I was not I caught my mind going elsewhere my thoughts wandering and many times I had to re read paragraphs and sometimes even pages trying to concentrate on the narrativeThe book begins with a collection of short stories introducing readers to a group of individuals and their sometimes not so obvious connections to the trees The rest 23 of the book brings these people together in an attempt to save our planet starting with the US from the deforestationI did not like the story the characters the pace It all felt too long too disconnected too aloof I did not feel for any of the characters and it seems to me that all of them were not only connected by the same cause but also that that were very similar despite their profound differencesIt all felt overwritten and just so slow going And despite of th

    eBook The Overstory eBook ó õ areyoubetteroff.co õ overstory kindle, The Overstory KindleThis is a long and complex book but so worth the effort The narrative follows eight different storylines which weave and interconnect with each other in different ways But all of them are united by trees You don't need to know anything about trees or be particularly fond of them the book will teach youFor en environmentalist this is a really rewarding read For others I imagine it will seem a bit moralistic or even boring On the other hand I think the characters are compelling and interesting enough to hold your attention At times the range of meanings and messages that the author was trying to convey was a bit l
