    I 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

    Richard 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 satiatin

    This 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 onepassage of florid description

    Further 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 wor

    Richard Powers s The Overstory soars up through the canopy of American literature and remakes the landscape of environmental fiction.Long celebrated for his compelling, cerebral books, Powers demonstrates a remarkable ability to tell dramatic, emotionally involving stories while delving into subjects many readers would otherwise find arcane He s w

    The 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

    Another hour Deserts of infinite boredom punctuated by peaks of freakish intensityPowers doing my review writing for me My reading experience ofThe Overstoryoften felt like a forced march of The Appalachian Trail while being read poetry In all likelihood that might appeal to some people, however I prefer a less arduous journey I tried to escape this book once, f
