|State of Wonder by Ann Patchett|
Copyright 2011, Harper Publishing
I really enjoyed was watching Marina as she became adjusted to living in the jungle. She realized how the material things in her life are not that important and she slowly got rid of them. When she rids herself of these material things, she learned so much about herself. I also loved how Ann Patchett managed to weave together so many powerful topics like ethics in medicine, science and conflicting morals and values. This book really pushes the envelope and that is one of the reasons I enjoyed it so much. It is unlike any other book I’ve read.
