Sure, I love Richard Preston's writing.
This is just a magazine article stretched out to incredible, unnecessary lengths. I still don't know much about the life up in these unexplored canopies, but I know a lot -- much, much more than I want to know -- about the geeks who explored the canopies. Their eating habits, relationships, even how they had sex up in the canopies after getting married up there. Nerdville unleashed.
The author's voice was somewhat sibilant and dull.
It's an interesting subject matter, and an unknown one to most people, for sure. Who knew that the canopies of these massive trees, and even the trees themselves, have remained a mystery until a few intrepid people climbed them? Interesting. Learning all about their lives, not so much.
