An absolutely beautifully written novel about trees and us and the environment. I loved everything about this novel from the structure, which is likened in the contents section to a tree, to the characters, the story and the message. It feels as though it'll stay with me for a long long time and I'll certainly never look at trees, or time, in the same way again. Highly recommended for patient readers.

Well written, thought provoking book that requires time to absorb and understand the intricacies of the various characters.

A lot going on in the book and I don’t really know where it’s going. Story so far is so diverse.

Just can’t get into it, don’t get what the story is trying to convey. Far too much about trees and not enough story content to get me interested.

Tried hard but not really a book I could get in to.

Can’t get into it, the introduction is too long and it didn’t draw me in.

Not really a book that I could get in to. Too much about trees and not easy to understand.
