Customer Review

on 23 July 2013
David Grann is the type of writer who regularly proves that fact is more interesting than fiction. In this book he embarks on a epic journey into the heart of the Amazon rainforest in an attempt to solve the mystery of Colonel Percy Harrison Fawcett, who disappeared in 1925 while searching for an El Dorado-like civilisation known as the City of Z. Grann tells the fascinating story of Fawcett, and the stories of others who followed him into the jungle, while preparing for his own Amazon quest.

It's a real page-turner, diligently researched and skilfully written. Does he find Fawcett or the City of Z? No spoilers. The cover informs that Brad Pitt has optioned the story - read it before he makes the movie.
