A fascinating story, skillfully told. I forgot how much I love this genre, whatever it’s called. (Narrative nonfiction adventure, maybe?) Grann bounces between Fawcett’s incredible adventures and the story of his own research quest in an enjoyable way, and he crafts a surprisingly satisfying ending considering that Fawcett’s fate remains a mystery to this day. I’ll definitely be reading more of Grann’s books soon.
