State of Wonder

State of Wonder - Ann Patchett I used to think I wanted to travel to the Amazon and explore the jungle. What a dreamer. I've been dissuaded by a work of fiction. The bugs, the humidity, the ease of getting lost, the large river which holds unseen monsters....I'll continue to admire the jungle from afar. Marina Singh travels to the Amazon in search of details about a coworker's death there, as well as to report back to the pharmaceutical company she is employed with on the research being conducted by the infamous Dr. Swenson. Her journey brings self-revelation, courage, unexpected friendships, truth, and loss. This book will stay with me for awhile. Since the ending was somewhat ambiguous, I'll cure my lonesomeness for the characters by imagining how their lives continued on....
