How do trees live? Do they feel pain or have awareness of their surroundings? Research is now suggesting trees are capable of much more than we have ever known. In The Hidden Life of Trees, forester Peter Wohlleben puts groundbreaking scientific discoveries into a language everyone can relate to.

I really enjoyed this book. Probably helped that I listened to it on holiday so I was pretty much sitting in a forest whilst listening to it! It’s informative without being a boring list of facts. I would highly recommend.

Before the war, Eden's life was easy. Then the revolution happened, and everything changed. Now a powerful group called the Wolfpack controls the earth and its resources. And even though Eden has lost everything to them, she refuses to die by their hands. She knows the coordinates to the only neutral ground left in the world, a place called Sanctuary Island, and she is desperate to escape to its shores.

I thought this would be a good adventure book but it’s extreemely depressing. I bought it to listen too on holiday but stopped about a quarter of the way in as it was not an enjoyable listen. I understand that there has to be hardship for a character to overcome, but does every sentence have to be about suffering or death! Sorry, not for me.
