This is a well-written, suspenseful mystery read by a brilliant actor. The voices of the characters are delivered with distinct and appropriate intonations.
I've enjoyed several of Ann Patchett's novels (Bel Canto, Patron Saint of Liars), but this book is by far her most ambitious and most intriguing. Patchett presents a fascinating and intelligent protagonist engaged in a meaningful quest in the Brazilian rain forest. This is Heart of Darkness for the 21st century, a Heart of Light, or Heart Aglow. Hope Davis reads with grace and pathos.
