adventure, history, anthropology -- great journalistic account of early 20th century exploration in the Amazon and the hunt for a lost (possibly-mythical) civilization.

not as epic as middlesex, not as meticulous as virgin suicides -- feels like a lazy eugenides effort, with semi-obvious satirical fodder (brown semiotics majors, e.g.), but ultimately hard to put down.

not my favorite mcewan, but a tight little thriller nonetheless. maybe something like amsterdam with less successful dark comedy...

Revelation Space by Alastair Reynolds

relativistic weapons, standing waves in spacetime, the human mind encoded as software -- a very imaginative conception of the universe circa 2700.. devolves into long chase scenes for the last 100 pages.. 3.5 stars...
