REVIEW: FEVERS by Joel Homer
Wildly engrossing and unforgettable, FEVERS is a rocketing ride into the heart of the Amazonian jungle, the heart of darkness, and the heart of evil. At first akin to a fictional Stanley & Livingston saga as American expatriate reporter William Straw hunts for the elusive, invisible North American "messiah " to the Indio, the unidentifiable Michael Fevers--reportedly a strong leader, dedicated to preservation of the native tribes--the One prophesied throughout Native history in Latin America. With every twist and turn, on land an on the river, Straw's quest becomes a journey akin to Joseph Conrad's HEART OF DARKNESS: a journey of terror, heartache, terrible physical injury, indignity, and madness. I don't know that I will ever be able to forget this novel.
