Welcome to Heather's Library World!!! You can follow my journey as I work my way to my dream of being a Young Adult (YA) Reference Librarian. This site will also have my book reviews, favorite sites, books, books, and more books. And also maybe a bit about the personal me :)
Taking place in the Amazon, this novel starts out very intriguing and gave me the sense it was going to be a great novel. Not even one-third of the way into the book it became dull and very drawn out. The entire middle section drags on and made it very difficult for me to continue. The few twists and turns that Patchett adds to the storyline were so predictable, it actually hinders the book rather than make it enticing. Then near the end there are two characters that have sex and shouldn’t have, plus the aspect added nothing to the plot. My disappointment in this scene encouraged my dislike for the novel even more. I feel the only readers that may enjoy the novel are those very interested in the Amazon or biology, otherwise don’t bother.
