Had a hard time

I really wanted to enjoy that book but I had a hard time caring about the story and the narration was really not the most eloquent...

Lovely reading, took me back to Manaus

Like a good novel captures everything : relationships, fear, politics (pharmaceutical industry, our relationship with developing countries), role models....
Marina is not the most likable character, but she achieves what no one else has done and manages to escape the jungle intact.
