Truly an inspired great read!  Uplifting and funny as it captures life's greatest lessons through man's best friend.  Careful though - you just might adopt a dog after reading this!

"State of Wonder" by Ann Patchett is a work of fiction set in the Amazon rainforest.  It is centered around flora in the rainforest that extends a woman's childbearing years.  It raises the possibility that there are unknown and undiscovered plants in the rainforest that have pharmaceutical benefits.  All this is woven into one woman's personal odyssey.

A en juger par les commentaires, ce livre, on l'aime ou on l'aime pas. Si vous hésitez, ne prenez pas le risque de passer à côté d'une histoire à la fois douce et bouleversante.Certes, la marche de Harold à travers l'Angleterre vous tiendra peut-être moins en haleine que la traversée de l'Amérique en Harley -mais Harold a infiniment plus de choses à vous dire sur la vie. Sur la vie, sur l'amour, sur le couple, sur l'amitié...C'est l'un des livres les plus émouvants que j'ai lu ces derniers…
