Mid-book report: Ann Patchett, State of Wonder

I’m a bit more than halfway through Ann Patchett’s  State of Wonder (2011).  So far, I’m enjoying it.  More, I would say, than I enjoyed Eugenides’s The Marriage Plot at the middle.

Parading my prejudices: I remember Patchett’s Bel Canto kept me going up until near the end where it fell apart.  I’m worrying that Patchett is a good story teller, but not a good story ender, so I’m bracing for disappointment at the end.  But I’m having a hard time putting it down at the moment.

I’ll let you know how it comes out.
