Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver
Flight Behavior

Fay, January 30, 2013

Although many reviews have described it as a novel about climate change - and although the natural (or rather, unnatural) events that unfold in the novel are gripping and well-developed, what drew me in to the book was the main character. It is her journey, the opening up of her life to new possibilities, that kept me reading. Beautifully written.

Best book I've read this year - in fact, the best novel I've read in years. Vividly descriptive, and great fun to read.

The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon by David Grann
The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon

A very well-written account of Fawcett's obsession to find the lost city, as well as the travails of everyone who subsequently attempted to find Fawcett, and of course the author's adventures in following in all of their footsteps. Vivid descriptions of the jungle environment should be required reading for anyone who is casually thinking of undertaking such a trip.
