Time and time again I had to restrain myself from turning to the back of the book to see how it ends.
Journalist David Grann, a city boy like myself, was fascinated by the story of Fawcett's disappearance while on a quest to find what he called "The Lost City of Z."
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for an exciting and absorbing read about one of history's great characters.
This Book is Not about Zombies.
Its a outstanding novel about a explorer and the expeditions of the Amazon. I was lost in the tale. Great.

A lot of padding.
Do not read this book to learn about the lost city of Z. As to learning about explorers who sought it, there is a lot of padding in the book.
