I'd agree with the other reviews on this title. The Men in the Trees is a real keeper! The characters are interesting, the dialogue is clever but credible. The teen (early 20s) characters feel like real people to me rather than stereotypes i often have to endure in YA fic. I've never read another book that dealt with mysterious animals living in the Pacific Northwest (aka Bigfoot), but I'm sure they're out there. Still, author Marsh Myers put a really clever spin on them, providing glimpses into ...more

Read his first book, enjoyed this one even more. I think I blew through it in two days. A tale of monsters and mysteries with a credible female protagonist who doesn't shrink like a violet but also doesnt act like a guy. As with Myers's first book, His Life Abiding, this novel is filled with interesting characters who seem mismatched at first but somehow find a way to blend. The novel has a relaxed pace but keeps the interest high with lots of twists. Great fun now matter how you slice it.

The story of a single mom who finds herself wrapped up in a treasure hunt and a romantic triangle with the father of her child and a college boy who's a bit of a nerd. Good dialogue and intriguing characters each with their own secrets keeps the plot moving forward at a brisk pace. Recommended!

I wrote a revie on this book, changed editions and my review went away! That's not good but this is the cover on the book I ordered from Amazon which is really striking so I wanted to use it.

I read Meyers's first book a while ago and really liked it (5 stars from me). This one not as much but that has more to do with my personal tastes as a reader than anything wrong with the book. This one is much darker and more adult than his first. I missed the sense of whimsy which was in the first novel.

This is a story about a young women who got in trouble in high school and now is raising a toddler in the town of Corvallis Oregon. To help with her rent she puts an ad in the paper for a roommate and the person who answers is a elderly former school teacher named Rose. Rose seems harmless enough until Meryl (the main character) begins to wonder about some of the things shes intersted in like old forest legends about a group of gold miners who disappeared in the willderness many years before. ...more

Loved this book! I'm not a huge fan of young adult ficiton but was intrigued by this title. Bought a copy from Amazon and pretty much devoured it. A really interesting story, interesting characters and engaging dialogue. Really well done.

Like any good thriller this novel builds the tension slowly, starting with what seems like a chance encounter between the two main characters to an ending where you wonder if certain things were just meant to be?? An easy and fun read from the first sentence to th last, loved it.
