Annihilation (Southern Reach Trilogy, #1)

Annihilation (Southern Reach Trilogy, #1)

Jeff VanderMeer

Serious love for this book moved quickly through my coworkers at the bookstore. This is the first of a trilogy that will be released in paperback all within a year. So no ridiculous price point and no waiting. That in of itself is amazing. But add the fact that this start is incredible. Visceral, beautiful, scary, exhilarating. Everything you want from a series beginner and I’m beyond excited for the rest of it. I think a wide range of readers would really enjoy it. It’s a book for everyone who reveres reading and maybe even one for people who don’t always enjoy reading. I can’t recommend it enough. The movie is in production now with Oscar Isaac and Natalie Portman among the actors cast for the start of what I hope is a movie trilogy.
