State of WonderState of Wonder by Ann Patchett

I just finished this and can’t recommend it highly enough to readers who enjoy setting and character-driven stories. The plot description can sound tantalizing, but it’s not really very action packed, dealing more with ethical ambiguities, a complex web of personalities and choices, and a setting that reaches out and grabs you. With Patchett you know she’ll never quite spare you the difficult moment, but neither will she give you an unbearably bleak ending. The result will be something inbetween, the kind of story that’s difficult to leave behind and that begs rereading.
