The Lost City of Z Book Reviews

One of the best books I’ve read
I’ve reread this book three times and it’s topic still fascinates me. Grann explores Fawcett’s disappearance from multiple perspectives as he retraced his steps through the Amazon. I’d highly recommend this book to anyone!

Hard to follow
The constant shuffling between time periods and interlaced stories made for difficult reading. I really enjoyed all the backstory of various characters etc, but feel the title of the book is misleading. I wanted to go on a mental safari but instead had to fight through to the finish.

Incredible story
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The author, Grann, had researched Fawcett and all the other explorers who traveled with him. So much interesting information about South America, the geographical areas, the various Indians that inhabit the countries, the cultures, and the race between the countries and various explorers to not only map the Amazonian region, but to find a lost city in a quest for fame, glory and wealth.

Loved it.
I was lost in this book the entire time I read it. I was oblivious to the story and it was told in a way that kept me wanting to read more

I'm a little obsessed with the jungle myself now. This book is awesome! It sucked me right in, and it was hard to believe such a gripping adventure could happen in nonfiction.
