  • A novel about the natural world - trees specifically - and our power as human beings to destroy it or redeem it. It reminds me that we are all connected and that there is still time to make things right

    TAYARI JONES, author of An American Marriage
  • An extraordinary novel... It's an astonishing performance... The Overstory leaves you with a slightly adjusted frame of reference

  • Should be mandatory reading the world over

  • On almost every page of The Overstory you will find sentences that combine precision and vision. You will learn new facts about trees... [An] exhilarating read

    The Times
  • One of the most thoughtful and involving novels I've read for years... Extraordinary

    Daily Telegraph
  • Absolutely blown away by this epic, heartbreaking novel about us and trees

    EMMA DONOGHUE, author of Room and The Pull of the Stars
  • [A] majestic redwood of a novel... Combines the multi-narrative approach of David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas with a paean to the grandeur and wonder of trees... It is fitting that it ends with a message of hope

  • A rare specimen: a Great American Eco-Novel... It will change the way you look at trees

    Financial Times
  • It changed how I thought about the Earth and our place in it . . . It changed how I see things and that's always, for me, a mark of a book worth reading

    Barack Obama, New York Times
