"Again, this is not a good novel qua novel; the back half of it reads almost as if a different hand had worked on it ... a characteristic that intriguingly echoes a similar defect in Heinlein's Stranger In a Strange Land, which The Man in The Tree is inevitably comparable to." "The interesting - nay, the fascinating, the stunning - part of the book is a novel about growing up in the Northwest if you're more talented than the world will allow."
