  • Too much

    Annihilation was short and sweet, while this book is a long slog. Authority describes everything to the Nth degree, regardless of its importance; the book drowns in description. Reading this was a chore.

  • Shouldn't have been it's own book

    2.5 stars..... The follow-up to Annihilation picks up with the mysterious agency, the Southern Reach, working to piece together the events of the latest expedition into the Area X. "Authority" almost entirely focuses on introducing readers to new characters, all employees of the Southern Reach: the new director, known by the moniker "Control", whose tasked with leading the investigation. He has to struggle with an uncooperative assistant director, Grace, who feels slighted that she wasn't named director, and takes it out on Control at every possible opportunity. There's a lesser cast of quirky characters known as the Science and Seance brigade that come into play. Very little of interest actually "happens" in Authority. It's almost entirely character driven but it's not really very engaging. The opening chapters provide some intrigue (can't say much more than that), but it isn't built upon. The final chapter provides the only real excitement and suspense and answers some questions raised after reading the opening chapters. It ends in a cliffhanger that will bring most of back to book 3.

    Thanks for your feedback!
