Product Description Review “An engaging consummately told tale.” (New York Times) “Emotionally lucid. . . . Patchett is at her lyrical best when she catalogues the jungle.” (The New Yorker) “This is surely the smartest most exciting novel of the summer.” (Washington Post) “The Amazon setting is something Patchett does rather marvelously.… The book is serious but also so pleasurable that you hope it won’t end.” (NPR) “Outlandishly entertaining…[with] a brilliantly constructed plot.” (Elle) “Packs a textbook’s worth of ethical conundrums into a smart and tidily delivered story. . . . Ms. Patchett presents an alluring interplay between civilization and wilderness between aid and exploitation.” (Wall Street Journal) “The large canvas of sweeping moral issues both personal and global comes to life through careful attention to details however seemingly mundane—from ill-fitting shoes and mosquito bites to a woman tenderly braiding another woman’s hair.” (O the Oprah Magazine) “A spellbinder from bestselling author Patchett. . . . Thrilling disturbing and moving in equal measures—even better than Patchett’s breakthrough Bel Canto .” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review)) “A superbly rendered novel. . . . Patchett’s portrayal is as wonderful as it is frightening and foreign. Patchett exhibits an extraordinary ability to bring the horrors and the wonders of the Amazon jungle to life and her singular characters are wonderfully drawn. . . . Powerful and captivating.” (Library Journal (starred review)) “A thrilling new novel. . . . The world imagined in this novel is unusually vivid. . . . Reading State of Wonder is a sensory experience and even after it’s over you’ll keep hearing the sounds of insects and your own head will still be hot.” (No Source) “A thrilling new novel. . . . The world imagined in this novel is unusually vivid. . . . Reading State of Wonder is a sensory experience and even after it’s over you’ll keep hearing the sounds of insects and your own head will still be hot.” (MORE Magazine) “Patchett makes the jungle jump off the page…This is Patchett’s best effort since The Patron Saint of Liars and yes that includes Bel Canto ” (Shelf Awareness) “Extraordinary. . . . Is there nothing the prodigiously talented Ann Patchett can’t do? . . . Patchett’s last knockout pages proceed full-speed ahead with more twists and turns and trachery than the Amazon River. Nothing is as it seems and the ending is as shocking as it’s satisfying.” (Boston Globe) From the Back Cover In a narrative replete with poison arrows devouring snakes scientific miracles and spiritual transformations State of Wonder presents a world of stunning surprise and danger rich in emotional resonance and moral complexity. As Dr. Marina Singh embarks upon an uncertain odyssey into the insect-infested Amazon she will be forced to surrender herself to the lush but forbidding world that awaits within the jungle. Charged with finding her former mentor Dr. Annick Swenson a researcher who has disappeared while working on a valuable new drug she will have to confront her own memories of tragedy and sacrifice as she journeys into the unforgiving heart of darkness. Stirring and luminous State of Wonder is a world unto itself where unlikely beauty stands beside unimaginable loss beneath the rain forest's jeweled canopy. See all Product Description
