Meandering Em's

Passion is books, photography, running and traveling. Also passionate about environmental issues.

State of Wonder - Ann Patchett I found this book to be fascinating in the beginning. The descriptions of Manaus and the Amazon region was realistic. I could feel the heat and humidity and see the huge insects trying to suck my blood. But, after a while the story line got so bizarre, that I couldn't wait to finish the book. There wasn't one adult character that was sympathetically drawn. They contrasted with the one likeable person, a deaf boy named Easter. If you enjoy eating tree bark, getting pregnant at age 70 and having a battle with an anaconda, then this might be the book for you. It was a little too much for me.
