Review: Annihilation

Annihilation (Southern Reach, #1)Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I read this via audiobook. I also had a print copy that I followed along periodically. I loved this book because of the vivid imagery, the careful details, and the internal monologue of a woman discovering a new world and her own mind's transformation.

The writing is poetic in a sense and not the best book for someone who must have an easy or direct plot. It is similar to other science fiction works that focus on world building and character arcs over a clear problem and solution. Despite that, there are plenty of actions and events to keep it moving.

Lots of questions and intrigue, perhaps not enough reveals, but it is only the first of a trilogy and I look forward to reading the other two.
