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.… (més)

Annihilation de Jeff VanderMeer

  1. 100
    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)

A weird and frightening Sci-Fi adventure that reminded me of the stuff I used to read in Omni Magazine. A real "Through the Looking Glass" experience. ( )
  Carmentalie | Jun 4, 2022 |
This is a supremely weird book. Four women, known only by their professions (psychologist, surveyor, anthropologist, and biologist, who is our narrator) form an expedition into the strange realm of Area X. Previous expeditions had committed suicide, or killed each other, or returned without much memory and then died of cancer shortly thereafter. The biologist arrives full of curiosity, determined to figure out the area's secrets. Soon she starts to learn strange facts about the flora and fauna of the area, coming tantalizing close to understanding it all. Then she decides she's completely fine with not knowing. Which is kind of disappointing. So in short, I have absolutely no idea what happened or what it all means and maybe it's covered in a later book in the trilogy but frankly I'm kinda meh on the whole endeavor. It did employ intricate description and I definitely could picture the words in the tower, the detritus in the lighthouse, all of it. But in the end I just couldn't follow enough of the plot to inspire me to continue the series. ( )

Wow. A fun, fast read. Vandermeer has created an eerie world where something very strange has happened and everyone has secrets from one another. As I read "Annihilation" I was reminded of wine-tasting. I have not yet (perhaps never will?) be able to discern the various components of a given kind of wine ... which fruit, which overtones, what kind of finish, with hints of ... you get the picture. But with "Annihilation" I was reminded of a variety of different stories and possible influences. Lovecraft is a fairly obvious one -- both his imagination and his light-on-dialogue style. I was also reminded of the island in the TV series "LOST", and the strange things that occurred there. The creepiness of the personal transformations that occur in the story reminded me a lot of the novel "The Ruins" by Scott B. Smith. And the transformation taking place in the landscape itself reminded me of "The Crystal World" by J. G. Ballard, a tale of a strange (but different) conversion of the terrain from normal to abnormal.

I must confess, even the design of the book hooked me. An interesting cover, interesting graphics within the cover, and a length to the book that promised I wouldn't have to invest too much reading time before I determined whether it was worth staying with.

I'm looking forward to the next two books in the trilogy. Here's hoping we aren't left hanging when the last book comes out. We want our questions answered! ( )

Absolute brilliance. ( )

Well damn! This was amazing, and kind of insane. The entire book was fantastic, creepy, claustrophobic, atmospheric and even emotional. But the climax was absolute perfection. So well written. I didn't know this was a trilogy going in but I am really excited to read the next installment. ( )

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.

Desolation tries to colonize you.
"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.
