"'Am I a person?' Borne asks Rachel, in extremis. 'Yes, you are a person,' Rachel tells him. 'But like a person, you can be a weapon, too.' In a ruined, nameless city of the future, Rachel makes her living as a scavenger. She finds a creature she names Borne entangled in the fur of Mord, a gigantic despotic bear that once prowled the corridors of a biotech firm, the Company, until he was experimented on, grew large, learned to fly, and broke free. Made insane by the company's torture of him, Mord terrorizes the city even as he provides sustenance for scavengers. At first, Borne looks like nothing at all--just a green lump that might be a discard from the Company, which, although severely damaged, is rumored to still make creatures and send them to far-distant places that have not yet suffered collapse. Borne reminds Rachel of the island nation of her birth, now long lost to rising seas. She feels an attachment that she resents: attachments are traps, and in this world any weakness can kill you. Yet when she takes Borne to her subterranean sanctuary, Rachel convinces her lover, Wick--a special kind of dealer--not to render down Borne as raw genetic material for the drugs he sells. But nothing is quite the way it seems: not the past, not the present, not the future. If Wick is hiding secrets, so is Rachel--and Borne most of all. What Rachel finds hidden deep within the Company will change everything and everyone. There, lost and forgotten things have lingered and grown. What they have grown into is mighty indeed"--"From the author of the Southern Reach Trilogy comes a story about two humans, and two creatures. The humans are Rachel and Wick - a scavenger and a drug dealer - both with too many secrets and fears, ready with traps to be set and sprung. The creatures are Mord and Borne - animal, perhaps plant, maybe company discard, biotech, cruel experiment, dinner, deity, or source of spare parts"--… (més)

I would love to have the imagination a story like this is birthed from. Not as impenetrable as the Southern Reach Trilogy, but still fairly substantial. ( )

Did not finish. Boring, meandering, drags on and on. Had some cool ideas and concepts but just went nowhere ( )

I didn't finish this not because it wasn't compelling or well written, but because it was so goddamn grim. I just couldn't deal. ( )
  Venarain | Jan 10, 2022 |
This is my current favorite book (July 2018). I enjoyed the traditional narrative approach on the world he set up in his non-traditional narrative books. I loved borne and was very attached to him and his relationship with his mom by the end. Also, giant flying bear was awesome! ( )

Based on a copy from NetGalley.

So weird! So good! Read it! Just read all of Jeff VanderMeer. ( )

In Sachen fremder, intelligenter Lebensform hat VanderMeer mit „Borne“ den Olymp erklommen. Der Autor imaginiert Szenen zwischen dem Monster und seiner menschlichen Ziehmutter, die so andersartig und schön sind, dass man das eigene Kopfkino gern dazu nimmt beim Lesen.
