There was so much to love about this story of 3 anthropologists who are doing field research in New Guinea. The setting is great - both moody and interesting and I loved the introspective approach to revealing these characters and their awkward relationships to each other. Every time I picked the book up, I would just fall into that world for awhile. I love when a book can do that for me. I will definitely come back to this book again and will look for other novels by this author.
