About this item

Only at Target, find the June, 2012, Club Pick "State of Wonder" by Ann Patchett.

Dr. Marina Singh has been tasked with a dangerous mission: travel deep into the Amazon jungle and find her former mentor Dr. Annick Swenson, a researcher who has disappeared while working on a valuable new drug. As Marina embarks upon her uncertain odyssey, she is forced to confront her own past, which proves more threatening than the devouring snakes and neighboring tribe of cannibals that already stand in her way. The world beneath the rainforest's canopy is both unforgiving and illuminating, a place where scientific miracles and spiritual transformations create the ultimate challenge, and Marina's journey into the very heart of darkness soon becomes a test of her very humanity.




In a narrative replete with poison arrows, devouring snakes, scientific miracles, and spiritual transformations, State of Wonder presents a world of stunning surprise and danger, rich in emotional resonance and moral complexity.

As Dr. Marina Singh embarks upon an uncertain odyssey into the insect-infested Amazon, she will be forced to surrender herself to the lush but forbidding world that awaits within the jungle. Charged with finding her former mentor Dr. Annick Swenson, a researcher who has disappeared while working on a valuable new drug, she will have to confront her own memories of tragedy and sacrifice as she journeys into the unforgiving heart of darkness. Stirring and luminous, State of Wonder is a world unto itself, where unlikely beauty stands beside unimaginable loss beneath the rain forest's jeweled canopy.
