      This is the 2nd book by Marsh Myers and I decided to get it after I read and enjoyed his first. Comapred to His Life Abiding, The Men in the Trees is a more adult story, clearly written for an olderaudience. The female heroine (Meryl) is a young mother whose new roommate appears to be a kindly old school teacher but has some peculiar ambitions & and history of involvement for get rich quick schemes. Meryl is dubious at first but quickly becomes embroiled in the roommates quest due to her own [...]

      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 [...]

      I'm very happy to recommend The Men in the Trees by author Marsh Myers. I bought this book after having some chats with Marsh here on GR and got interested in the story after reading some of the background info he posted on his blog. I dont wanna give away too much of the plot becuase I hate spoilers myself but it revolves around a young woman whose new roommate has showed up at her door quite unexpectedly. As they two women get to know each other the main character (Meryl) grows suspicious of t [...]

      I finished The Men in the Trees by Marsh Myers last night and loved it! It just recently became available as an ebook for the very reasonable price of $2.99 so I snapped up my copy. It's a great story to curl up with on a rainy night (which last night was!) and imagine mysterious creatures creeping 'round the house in the dark. Great fun with a complicated but endearing female protagonist (Meryl). I really enjoyed how Myers made her a credible young woman who you see struggling both with her per [...]

      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.

      I really enjoy books that start out in one direction and byy the end you've ended up in a place different from what you expected. This is the case with The Men in the Trees by Marsh Myers. From the first few chapters you are presented with some tantalizing clues as to what will happen next. There's a creepy old house in the woods, mysterious forest spirits which may be part of a dream or may not, a young woman struggling to make her way in a town she's new to. By the end of the novel, these thin [...]

      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 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. No whim [...]

      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. Th [...]

      I Much enjoyedThe Men in the Trees which seems to have a more plausible plot than a lot of paranormal fiction. Though not called Bigfoot in the text it was clear these animals were based on those mythical legends and it was very interesting to me how the author wnt into their culture too. This is a very well written book and I think anyone who likes a good thriller will enjoy it.

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

    • Charlotte Stance says:

      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.
