  • An exploration of the unknowable.

    Faced with a world where bizarre and terrifying events are the norm, VanderMeer creates the quintessential unreliable narrator in The Biologist. Her exploration of Area X is interwoven with her observations of who she is and who she's becoming. Detailed and beautifully descriptive prose creates a lasting and haunting strangeness that most contemporary science fiction is utterly incapable of. This fully deserves to be considered one of the great classics of the genre.

  • Stick to #1

    The other two cheapens the story. a perfect little puzzle with no tied up loose ends, more questions than answers and a perfect encapsulation of the awe, mystery and divinity of science and our universe. The third one particularly is awful.

  • Symbiosis?

    This well written story takes the reader into the realm of biological fantasy. It gives a new depth of meaning to the concept of the web of life and the interdependency all living things. This, first of the trilogy, is almost too esoteric but I look forward to reading the other books for clarification.

  • Annihilation

    I can’t say too much without spoiling. This is my second read-through and the story is crafted so intricately and full of sensuous detail. I really can picture it playing out in my head.
