Description

"Expect miracles when you read Ann Patchett's fiction."- New York Times Book Review

Award-winning, New York Times bestselling author Ann Patchett returns with a provocative and assured novel of morality and miracles, science and sacrifice set in the Amazon rainforest. Infusing the narrative with the same ingenuity and emotional urgency that pervaded her acclaimed previous novels Bel Canto , Taft , Run , The Magician's Assistant , and The Patron Saint of Liars , Patchett delivers an enthrallingly innovative tale of aspiration, exploration, and attachment in State of Wonder -a gripping adventure story and a profound look at the difficult choices we make in the name of discovery and love.

Our customer reviews

Loved this book. I really enjoyed her previous book Bel Canto and now I am an Ann Patchett fan! This book is set in the Amazon and it is so evocative of the heat, noise and exoticness of the rainforest. The author is so good at describing people and their emotions with such realism that it is totally believable.show more
