This is my favorite fiction novel by Ann Patchett, including State of Wonder. Great characters, as usual. Thought-provoking as well.

I loved this book. It's very human, humane, and interesting. I liked the characters -- all of them. I cared about what happened to them and how they thought about their lives and what they made of their lives. I recommend it.
