Wow! What an adventure. I'd read Grann's article in the New yorker a couple of years ago and have been waiting to find out how the expedition turned out ever since. I was particularly intrigued by Grann's ability to weave Fawcett's biography and final journey, subsequent rescue attempts and Grann's own journey into one coherent narrative while still maintaining the excitement of each adventure. He kept me guessing about the existence of Z the whole time and the ending was most satisfying! Made me pick up Rage to Live, about Richard Burton. On to more adventure!
