Currently I'm enjoying The Overstory, a NYTimes Bestseller released in 2018. It's a mix of relatable characters set within nonfiction botany-like narratives. The relationships of the characters are complex and all relate back to trees either directly or more subtly. If you can't tell by this review, it's somewhat hard to describe. To be honest it's much less of a "page-turner"-type novel, and more of a "meditate and reflect" piece. I'm enjoying it so far and I'm interested to see how the different storylines connect.
A novel of activism and natural-world power presents interlocking fables about nine remarkable strangers who are summoned in different ways by trees for an ultimate, brutal stand to save the continent's few remaining acres of virgin forest.
