book coverState of Wonder by Ann Patchett "State of Wonder, Patchett's sixth novel, is a riveting variation on that tightly plotted journey from darkness to light. The novel traces the steps of 42-year-old Marina Singh, pharmacologist at the Vogel Pharmaceutical Company in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. Marina makes her way to a place deep in the bowels of the jungle, 'somewhere on a tributary off the Rio Negro' in Brazil, and then must fight her way back home to the bright, frozen landscape of Eden Prairie. Part scientific thriller, part engaging personal odyssey, State of Wonder is a suspenseful jungle adventure with an unexpected ending and other assorted surprises." -- Laura Ciolkowski, Chicago Tribune
