State of Wonder -A spoiler free book review

State of Wonder by Anne Patchett
NYT Best Seller 

Would I recommend this book to a friend?

Is it a page flipper/easy read?


Spoiler free summary:

This book is about a woman who works for a pharmaceutical company. After receiving little information about the death of a coworker who was sent to the amazon to get a status update on a drug discovery project, she's told by her boss/lover to go there and find out what happened. 

Her journey into the jungle leads her to amazing discoveries not just about the death of her friend but also the drug discovery project, the locals, and the amazon as a whole. 

The book is very sciencey and well written. It's so descriptive and really sucked me in. The ending however, didn't bring full closure to everything. Maybe the author wanted to leave the option for a sequel. If that's the case, I certainly look forward to reading it. 

Hope you found this helpful.
