If J. J. Abrams, Margaret Atwood, and Alan Weisman collaborated on a novel ... it might be this awesome.

Area X has been cut off from the rest of the continent for decades. Nature has reclaimed the last vestiges of human civilization. The first expedition returned with reports of a pristine, Edenic landscape; all the members of the second expedition committed suicide; the third expedition died in a hail of gunfire as its members turned on one another; the members of the eleventh expedition returned as shadows of their former selves, and within months of their return, all had died of aggressive cancer.

This is the twelfth expedition.

Their group is made up of four women: an anthropologist, a surveyor, a psychologist??the de facto leader??and a biologist, who is our narrator. Their mission is to map the terrain and collect specimens; to record all their observations, scientific and otherwise, of their surroundings and of one another; and, above all, to avoid being contaminated by Area X itself.

They arrive expecting the unexpected, and Area X delivers??they discover a massive topographic anomaly and life forms that surpass understanding??but it's the surprises that came across the border with them and the secrets the expedition members are keeping from one another that change everything.

  1. 120
    Roadside Picnic de Arkady Strugatsky (Tuirgin, jeroenvandorp)
    Tuirgin: The Strugatsky Bros.' Roadside Picnic seems to be a touchstone of the Southern Reach Trilogy—and this continues with greater parallels in Authority. The styles of writing are entirely different, but the concept of Area X is a definite echo of the Zone. Roadside Picnic is a classic of European Science Fiction and well worth reading.… (més)

    Houses of Ravicka de Renee Gladman (DarthFisticuffs)
    DarthFisticuffs: Both novels are about the exploration of a place in which the place defies explanation, and the exploration is more into how the space defines the self. Both novels are also very similar in tone.

It's rare when the simple act of reading a book makes you feel like you're losing your own grip on reality and causing you to question everything, both in and out of the story.

I will live the rest of my life wishing I could read this again for the first time. ( )

This book is weird, at times I think too abstract for me. I found it really difficult to get into and a times a slog to read (actually it's not good commute reading, better to read in a quiet place where you can focus properly!).

Another one of those while I like the premise a lot but in execution I didn't find it a compelling read.

I'm intrigued by where the story is going in the next 2 books.. but I think I'm more likely to read a synopsis than the next two novels! ( )

Not my usual, type of book but I saw that a film of it was available on Netflix so thought I would read the book first. It was an interesting read which I did not fully understand but perhaps once I have watched the film it may become clearer ( )

Atemberaubend!
 
...strange, clever, off-putting, maddening, claustrophobic, occasionally beautiful, occasionally disturbing and altogether fantastic...Annihilation is a book meant for gulping — for going in head-first and not coming up for air until you hit the back cover.
afegit per zhejw | editaNPR, Jason Sheehan (Feb 7, 2014)
 
"Annihilation," in which the educated and analytical similarly meets up with the inhuman, is a clear triumph for Vandermeer, who after numerous works of genre fiction has suddenly transcended genre with a compelling, elegant and existential story of far broader appeal.

The tower, which was not supposed to be there, plunges into the earth in a place just before the black pine forest begins to give way to swamp and then the reeds and wind-gnarled trees of the marsh flats. Beyond the marsh flats and the natural canals lies the ocean and, a little farther down the coast, a derelict lighthouse. All of this part of the country had been abandoned for decades, for reasons that are not easy to relate. Our expedition was the first to enter Area X for more than two years, and much of our predecessors’ equipment had rusted, their tents and sheds little more than husks. Looking out over that untroubled landscape, I do not believe any of us could yet see the threat.

"Annihilation!" she shrieked at me, flailing in confusion.  "Annihilation! Annihilation!" The word seemed more meaningless the more she repeated it, like the cry of a bird with a broken wing.
