    MOBI garden home.co ↠ The Overstory Kindle ó overstory epub, The Overstory KindleI sit in silence holding the paperback copy of The Overstory in my hands thinking of trees Wondering which trees grew to become the books on my shelves Wondering which ones became the cherry tree desk my grandfather made for me Wondering how old the oak trees were that turned into the logs that made it into my wooden house to turn into beloved bookshelves I wonder at the kind of trees that frame my paintings That give my brushes shape I even have jewellery made of wood And Swedish butter knives And art My fence is made of wood and my garden holds an oak tree an acorn three apple trees plum trees three cherry trees plus a baby cherry trying to make it AND my garden

    MOBI garden home.co ↠ The Overstory Kindle ó overstory epub, The Overstory KindleRichard Powers’ structural approach to The Overstory breaks with traditional plotting The result is two books in one each designed to appeal to a different type of reader The flaw in this approach is that the book either reads like a literary triumph that starts slow then builds to something satiating or it reads like a bait and switch with a breathtaking start followed by a wearisome and long winded trek to the conc

    MOBI garden home.co ↠ The Overstory Kindle ó overstory epub, The Overstory KindleThis book has an interesting structure and it is well written I get what Powers is going for conceptually The character sketches which read like short stories are wonderful But then the book gets less engaging shall we say I stopped reading it because I just could not read one passage of florid description about trees or visions or highways I couldn't do it But if you love trees this is a good book for you I get why it won the Pulitzer

    MOBI garden home.co ↠ The Overstory Kindle ó overstory epub, The Overstory KindleFurther Update I can't help it Powers' writing does something to me I've now finished a re read of this book and I am going back to 5 stars It's a book that really rewards a second reading It is much darker than I remember from first read suicide disillusionment betrayal on top of the destruction of the natural world and also much emotional The latter of those two surprised me because I thought that knowing the story would reduce the emotional impact but the reverse happenedI loved all the comparisons of speed humans the natural world computers and I got a lot out of Neelay's story this

    MOBI garden home.co ↠ The Overstory Kindle ó overstory epub, The Overstory KindleShortlisted for the Man Booker in 2018 The Overstory is a brilliant and passionate book about humans and their relationship to trees and the natural environmentThe first half of the book is exceptional Written like short stories 9 characters are introduced separately with their tree story Each story has an event that has happened to change the life of the character by the tree or trees that shaped them The stories are phenomenalThe second half of the book is about these same characters being drawn together to fight the cause of saving trees Environmental activism is the center of this part of the book and it’s fight against logging companies who are destroying the American forests Richard Powers shows such compassion and enthusiasm throughout his book However I found the second half to be too long Some editing would have gone a long way His book is 500 pages long and not an easy one to get through It is well researched and very thought provoking however A

    MOBI garden home.co ↠ The Overstory Kindle ó overstory epub, The Overstory KindleI'm actually not uite sure how I felt about this one but also spoilers are going to follow before anyone gets angry at me The book starts out by telling what are seemingly separate stories about a variety of characters so at first I thought it was just going to be a collection of short stories That felt sort of confusing though because we met about 9 o

    MOBI garden home.co ↠ The Overstory Kindle ó overstory epub, The Overstory KindleThis has won the Pulitzer PrizeRichard Powers writes with ambition passion and reverence on the world of trees their ancient intelligence and their central place in the fragile ecosystem This is a dense and epic work of environmental fiction a picture of the state of our planet and how humanity has contributed to its degradation Whilst the over riding central character of this are trees he interweaves the stories of the lives of 9 disparate individuals within a four part structure of Roots Trunk Crown and Seeds The stories of the 9 people appear to be isolated but interlinked with their varying connections to trees and their growing contribution in their efforts to prevent the destruction of forests and woods Powers immerses us in the world of trees so wondrous coming at the theme from multiple perspectives packed with elements of science and a do

    MOBI garden home.co ↠ The Overstory Kindle ó overstory epub, The Overstory KindleThe Overstory is part short stories part tree porn part rant and part ramble It adds up to an impressive literary achievement that will linger with me for a long time even while the reading experience is generally tedious At times the characters are intriguing at least once does plot play a role and there’s even a fleeting moment of tension In other words if you only enjoy edge of your seat thrillers this isn’t your book If you’re obsessed with trees it might beI’m by all means a bonafide tree hugger Literally and figuratively As seen above this is me hugging a giant seuoia at Seuoia National Park When characters in this book stage a protest by sitting high in California Redwoods to prevent them from being cut down it’s easy to picture the scene My heart breaks at the mere thought of chopping down these landmarks Still the book is har

    MOBI garden home.co ↠ The Overstory Kindle ó overstory epub, The Overstory KindleThe Overstory is undeniably brilliant but it's also hard work and I'm not convinced the payoff was worth the effort I wanted to be able to say that I was so struck by Powers' genius that I was able to forgive the periods of abject tedium that characterized my reading experience but that would be a lie This is undoubtedly a fantastic book but I don't think I was the right reader for itHere I have to echo a sentiment that I expressed in my review of La
