Annihilation (Southern Reach Trilogy, #1)Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


The first book of the Southern Reach Trilogy (all three books of which will be published this year), this book describes the twelfth expedition into Area X, an area that was isolated thirty years ago for reasons that still are not completely clear. This group is entirely made up of women: an anthropologist; a surveyor; a psychologist; and the narrator, a biologist. This book is reminiscent of writers like Lovecraft and Algernon Blackwood, in which a creepiness permeates the entirety of the story and explanations remain just out of reach. Genuinely creepy and well done.
