Review

The Trees does for trees what Hitchcock did for birds. You have been warned (Irish Times, ‘Books to Watch Out For in 2016’)

The strength of the novel is in the visceral descriptions of the forest: the reader feels, smells and hears the trees, convincingly portrayed as sinister, formidable and with unnerving intentions of their own. Shaw gradually builds up a sense of the supernatural, including "whisperers" . A bold, intriguing conceit for a dystopian environmental novel . A valiant exploration into notions of power and leadership, and what humans can do when tested to their limits (Observer, Paperback of the Week)

Strange and brilliantly unsettling, it's a vivid look at a world gone to the wild (Mail on Sunday, ‘The Best New Fiction')

A strange and vivid journey into an ancient forest that has taken over the world with force. The Trees is a thought-provoking meditation on what it means to be wild. Death, darkness and eerie creatures lurk among the branches, but it's the human characters that surprise the most ... Ali Shaw once again weaves a fantastical and haunting story (Eowyn Ivey, author of The Snow Child)

Shaw's climax is like nothing else, crescendoing with almost CGI levels of spectacle as Tarantino meets Middle Earth (Financial Times)

Brilliant ... Masterfully written and utterly enthralling ... Dark and beautiful **** (Grazia)

Violent, beautiful, devastating and utterly enchanting - a triumph (Scotsman)

The Trees is a stunning and vivid examination of the relationship between humans and the environment ... Shaw masterfully brings every detail of the book to life. A wonderfully imaginative story, but also a compelling social commentary (Herald)

A fairy story for people who can still envisage a future that isn't completely bleak (Stanley Donwood)

A compelling adventure (Marie Claire)

Book Description

A compulsive, mesmerising and wildly imaginative novel in the vein of Pan's Labyrinth and Station Eleven from the award-winning author of The Girl with Glass Feet
