Eager reader of history, mystery, classics, biographies, steampunk, lit fic, science, scifi, and etc. My reviews are mostly positive--I rarely finish or write about books I don't enjoy. My TBR is too high for that.
I don't know if author Ann Patchett has spent time with an isolated tribe in the Amazon jungle, but after reading State of Wonder I feel like I have. With a compelling plot, vivid scenes and characters that seem to live and breath on their own this was a hard book to put down. I will definitely be trying her earlier books.
