State of Wonder by Ann Patchett
State of Wonder

Martha Bullen, January 2, 2012

Another outstanding novel from Ann Patchett. This was such an immersive experience, I kept forgetting I was safe at home rather than venturing into the Amazon jungle with her hapless heroine, Marina. The characters were compelling, the setting lavishly described and very real, and the plot took a couple of extremely unexpected twists. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves good stories, well told.
