it was ok
bookshelves: don-t-own, non-fiction
Read in August, 2009

Man goes adventuring down the Amazon led by a shady character whose story continually changes. Party unravels during their travels. Yossi and one guy strike out on their own and get separated. You can guess where this is going.

I'm not sure if it was a translation issue or a writing one, but the prose felt a bit stilted, even when it was describing riveting nightmarish scenes of foraging alone in the Amazon. Still, it was well worth reading to find out What Not To Do when touring the Amazon.
