Annihilation, by Jeff Vandermeer

Annihilation - Jeff VanderMeer

I'm marking this "finished," though I'm just over halfway through, because I'm finished with it. I read a sample before buying, and it intrigued me, but as I continued to read, the structure of the book, the characters, and the writing itself were all a disappointment. Judging from the other reviews I peeked at, it won't get any better and isn't worth finishing to resolve the mystery. Perhaps that's because it's the first part in a trilogy, perhaps not.


This book wants to be weird, atmospheric, and creepy, but it's only boring and cliche, sorry to say.
