Críticas:

"[Hoffman's] reporting takes hold, drawing a vivid portrait of the world of the Asmat people, hunter-gatherers who lived in isolation until the mid-20th century. Gripping." -- New York Times Book Review "In an expertly told tale that is begging for a film adaptation, Hoffman crafts a remarkable, balanced examination of this sensational case. . . . [He] deserves much credit for this riveting, multilayered tale." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) "With urgency boarding on obsession, Carl Hoffman retraces Rockefeller's perilous footsteps. The result is a hypnotic journey into otherness, a wild detective story amid cannibals and headhunters. A thrilling, one-of-a-kind tale -I couldn't stop reading." -- Andrew McCarthy, The Longest Way Home: One Man's Quest for the Courage to Settle Down "A bare-knuckle, adventure-filled journey in search of the answer to a half-century-old cold case: Whatever happened to Nelson Rockefeller's son, Michael? . . . A searching, discomfiting journey yields an elegant, memorable report." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "A tremendous accomplishment-easily one of the best books I read this year. Carl Hoffman's acute eye for detail is something to envy. And that closing passage will stick with me for a long, long time." -- Brendan I. Keorner, The Skies Belong To Us: Love and Terror in the Golden age of Hijacking "Not only has Carl Hoffman helped solve one of the great mysteries of the last 50 years, he has also written a page turner. An instant classic." -- Scott Wallace, The Unconquered: In Search of the Amazon's Last Uncontacted Tribe "A gripping whodunit. . . . a powerful book that succeeds in solving a half-century-old mystery." -- Wall Street Journal "Terrific . . . What's surprising about this book is not the revelation of Rockefeller's fate but rather the author's portrayal of a unique cultural encounter." -- Washington Post "Hoffman is an intelligent writer.... [the]best kind of non-fiction writing." -- The Globe and Mail "Compelling. Intoxicating. Sensational. Savage Harvest is a great read, as long as you're not eating lunch." -- Newsweek "A gripping read ... he's erected a solid foundation of reporting that goes far beyond what the rest of us did and is likely to make this the definitive account." -- Tim Sohn, Slate "Richly detailed .... nail-biting expose...Savage Harvest fascinates for the mystery it aims to solve as well as its portrait of an isolated but changing way of life." -- Chicago Tribune
