BorneBorne by Jeff VanderMeer

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


In a city that is largely a wasteland of Company ruin controlled by Mord, a gigantic bear, Rachel and her partner Wick survive by cleverness and scavenging. One day, Rachel finds a something on Mord and brings it home. Soon, it is clear it is a living, growing thing she names Borne. But what is Borne and does it represent salvation or terror? There are beautifully written moments, along with terror and humor and a plot synopsis (even this one) sounds absurd, but it feels very real and possible.

[I received an e-galley of this book through Netgalley.]
