Books for breakfast!

Annihilation, by Jeff Vandermeer
Authority, by Jeff Vandermeer


As the first day of 2015 draws to a close, I am very pleased to have spent the last few days reading 2/3 of Jeff Vandermeer's Southern Reach trilogy. The first novels-in-slipstream I've read. They really make you feel very, very strange. The first, Annihilation, works very well as a standalone volume; the second, Authority, I found even more engaging as a portrait of office politics, albeit under the strangest of circumstances.

Can't wait to finish the third book in the series, Acceptance.

Happy new year, everyone!
