    • War over the environment in Tasmania has been ongoing for many years and no battle has been furious or longstanding then that of the forests As in many conflicts, the first casualty is truth There is much published material on both sides of the debate but Anna s book tries to walk the narrow path between.It is clear however where Krien s sympathies lie To a logger, in response to being asked where she puts herself on this issue, she says I like nature I like creatures While she doesn t spell ou [...]


    • There s no doubt that Anna Krien writes beautifully, and I value the way she puts herself front and centre in her journalistic endeavours, wearing all of her vulnerabilities and biases on her sleeve Her writerly voice is raw and honest, and very acute I believed in Krien s open hearted analysis of the Forest wars in Tasmania, and thought she wrote perceptively about the various interest groups and camps For me, though, this book veered into trainspotting detail The material would have worked bea [...]


    • This was such an interesting book.Krien writes in a conversational style that is easy to read The book is the sort of piece you might read in The Monthly only longer.In the beginning, it s almost too conversational, but it s worth persevering There s a lot of work in this book Interviews with a multitude of characters from Premiers to loggers to activists and everyone in between Much research is revealed as you read on.If it s a case of choosing sides , the book comes out on the side of the fore [...]


    • The last of the Anna Krien binge that I purchased two months ago I have to say, whilst I love her style as a writer, this book was the hardest to get through for me Maybe it is the most remote in time and geography In this book her sympathies were obvious, although she really tried to be neutral She painted the unholy alliance between the now defunct Gunns and the largest two political parties as corrupt and if what she writes is true it likely was We are supposed to cheer the brave Greenies, a [...]


    • A well written and interesting read It brought home to me the greed of our society and the destruction caused as a result Krien did not hide her bias, but her efforts to put herself in the frontline and chat to people on both sides was admirable There has to be a better way for Tasmania to go than continuing the decimating forestry practices of the past.


    • I was looking for a balanced treatment of the issue, but this isn t it In places it is poorly written The author employs some wacky descriptions An office is described as looking wholesome, straight out of a timber yard in 1970s North Dakota pg 96 How is this meaningful to anyone who perhaps didn t see a 1970s timber yard in North Dakota How were North Dakotan timber yards different to those in, say, South Dakota Does the author have any idea A man stands between two dogs One dog is stiff and sh [...]


    • Anna Krien has done a marvelous job in this personal essay looking into the history of logging in Tasmania s forests I fell in love with her use of varied narrative techniques, visual imagery and well rounded characters.Reading Into the Woods has educated me, infuriated me, and made me sad Due to the sheer greed and deceitful actions of Forestry Tasmania and the Tasmanian government much damage has been done to the native forests in Tasmania and the wildlife.Scenes describing the poisoned animal [...]


    • With the Abbott government s pitiful plea to raze 74,000 ha of old growth forest just knocked back, this book feels very much alive.Anna Krien clearly lived this complex topic for a long time as she teases apart the forces around the old growth forest and new plantations in Tasmania From living with ingenious protesters in the cold forest, to sharing drinks with loggers and millers, furniture makers, politicians and , she covers the issues in admirable balance She has illuminated the situation, [...]


    • A very interesting read which brings up lots of information about the struggle to save old growth forests in Tasmania The author s research includes activists and their strong passion, loggers who have worked in the industry for years, the politicians and the corruption of individuals and government departments and mill owners Reading the facts quoted makes one very sad plus very angry but my eyes have been opened and I hope others will get to read this book and be enlightenedalso.


    • Great exploration of the logging debate in Tasmania Anna Krien interviews all the groups involved and one soon learns that it s not the greenies or the loggers who are the main players, it s the timber companies Gunns and the politicians that are the trouble So much dodginess, lies, corruption etc It s fairly disheartening although at least ends on a somewhat hopeful note.


    • Annoyed with myself that I missed this book when it was first published, although good to have the second edition with the afterword update Anna Krien s written a compelling account of Tasmania s forestry battles with all stakeholders bar the voiceless forests themselves heard I was angered, outraged, saddened and educated by this book Great read.


    • Excellent balanced but heartfelt, and disturbing concerning brazen corruption and lies of Tas Govt and Gunns And beautifully written lyrical in many places with some well chosen imagery and always clear in her meaning, explanations and confusion.


    • Really very good Ambivalent and washed through with shades of grey, very personal, angry, sad and hilarious The author never gets pompous, and is open about her own biases and flaws If you liked The Tall Man, there s a good chance you ll find this worthwhile.


    • I dont usually read this kind of book, but it seemed very well researched, and told in an easy way But the story is terribly sad and absurd
