State of Wonder by Ann Patchett
The Brazilian wild comes to life in this well told story about a scientist who travels to South America to uncover the reality behind the death of her co-worker. Funded by a pharmaceutical company, the protagonist's trip turns into a life changing experience full of very vivid experiences with snakes, overly handsy natives, and a fair share of quirky characters. This was an interesting read for sure.
