"An engaging, consummately told tale."--New York Times

"Emotionally lucid. . . . Patchett is at her lyrical best when she catalogues the jungle."--The New Yorker

"This is surely the smartest, most exciting novel of the summer."--Washington Post

"Outlandishly entertaining . . . [with] a brilliantly constructed plot."--Elle

"Packs a textbook's worth of ethical conundrums into a smart and tidily delivered story. . . . Ms. Patchett presents an alluring interplay between civilization and wilderness, between aid and exploitation."--Wall Street Journal

"The large canvas of sweeping moral issues, both personal and global, comes to life through careful attention to details, however seemingly mundane--from ill-fitting shoes and mosquito bites to a woman tenderly braiding another woman's hair."--O, the Oprah Magazine

"An expansive page-turner . . . Patchett's fluid prose dissolves in the suspense of this out-there adventure . . . that readers will hate to see end."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A superbly rendered novel. . . . Patchett's portrayal is as wonderful as it is frightening and foreign. Patchett exhibits an extraordinary ability to bring the horrors and the wonders of the Amazon jungle to life, and her singular characters are wonderfully drawn. . . . Powerful and captivating."--Library Journal (starred review)

"In fluid and remarkably atmospheric prose, Patchett captures not only the sights and sounds of the chaotic jungle environment but also the struggles and sacrifice of dedicated scientists."--Booklist

"Patchett makes the jungle jump off the page...This is Patchett's best effort since "The Patron Saint of Liars" and, yes, that includes "Bel Canto""--Shelf Awareness
