    A sensational disappearance that made headlines around the world. A quest for truth that leads to death, madness or disappearance for those who seek to solve it. The Lost City of Z is a blockbuster adventure narrative about what lies beneath the impenetrable jungle canopy of the Amazon. After stumbling upon a hidden trove of diaries, acclaimed New Yorker writer David Grann set out to find out what happened to the British explorer Percy Fawcett and his quest for the Lost City of Z.

    jennifer says: "A Worthy Read for Armchair Explorers"
    "Read "River of Doubt" instead"
    Overall

    Extensive press raised my expectations that this would be a notable and memorable book.
    Unfortunately, the so so writing failed to bring the subject matter to life. This book pails in comparison to RIVER OF DOUBT (though it quotes from this earlier work).
    Here's another situation where the author is unable to bring his characters to life on the page -- or to convey the arc of their journey.
    The books promise is sadly done in by its feeble execution.
    Not terrible...however, I would advise checking out better options first.
