State of WondereBook - 2011
From Library Staff
The opening setting is wintry Minnesota, but events soon plunge into the scorching, muggy Amazon rainforest. Unique character relationships and conflicts set against a distinctive backdrop, all engagingly described by Ann Patchett, make this a memorable novel to read in the summer.

Without revealing too much and running the risk of implying the book is one-dimensional, let's just say the book is about an extensive research project into a new, potentially earth-shattering drug.
Patchett takes us from Boston to the deepest hidden realms of the Amazon in this layered, haunting tale of biomedical exploration and the search for ourselves. Outstanding writing is Patchett's hallmark in this intricately layered novel. Deep, complex strands of narrative all come together beautifully and characters, both main and incidental are fully explored and brought to life. This is a masterful work.
