    I can t give thisthan 2 stars because the center of the book drags along like a sacked brick I tried and tried to get into it, but I couldn t remain interested.It just doesn t need 200 pages to get across the idea of the Southern Reach Relationships barely develop past the first meetings and the whole thing feels stuck I guess this mirrors the feelings the main ch

    In the black water with the sun shining at midnight, those fruit shall come ripe and in the darkness of that which is golden shall split open to reveal the revelation of the fatal softness in the earth John A.K.A Control has been made director of The Southern Reach Facility The last director finagled her way onto the last expedition into Area X and has never been seen or

    If Annihilation reminded me of Jeanette Winterson s writing, then Authority reminded me of Kafka, but not the interesting Kafka, one of the boring ones, which surely if I say which one, my dear friends are going to quickly assure me that I m quite wrong and there is no way Kafka could ever be boring with such Big Ideas So maybe I don t mean Kafka Maybe I mean one of those other s

    Holy crap, this book was unbearable I m trying to think of something good to say about this bookand failing It reminds me of an unholy blend of the final season of Lost, The Blair Witch Project, Cloverfield, The Office, and Waiting for Godot Endless trivial descriptions of bureaucracy, oblique dead end details, and an obstinate refusal to further the plot in any way, other than with frui

    SPOILER FREE REVIEWImagine a situation, John, in which you are trying to contain something dangerous But you suspect that containment is a losing game That what you want to contain is escaping slowly, inexorably That what seems impermeable is, in fact, over time, becoming very permeable That the divide isperforated than unperforated And that whatever this thing is seems to want to destroy you bu

    The mystery of Area X continues with an FBI agent s entry into the Southern Reach What s going on Why can t anybody remember anything Why is everyone so antagonistic And why does everything smell bad Rarely have I been so disappointed with a book as I was with Authority The first entry in this series is a gripping, psychedelic adventure that reads like a nature gone wild acid trip This book, on the othe

  7. Lyn Lyn says:

    The book begins with some delicious theatrical irony for the readers of Annihilation.I put Annihilation, Jeff VanderMeek s 2014 environmental thriller, down with one hand while reaching for the sequel with the other.Authority is in a different style and tone than was its predecessor Whereas the first book was a surreal dystopian nightmare, told from the first person perspective of The Biologist from a series of

  8. Fabian Fabian says:

    An important cardinal rule of trilogies is thoroughly broken with Authority, Book 2 in the Southern Reach Trilogy That which states that the second tome must build something out of the previous one, that its limits are expanded, that the adventure is transmogrified to its very apex see, Star Wars episode 5, Godfather II, Senor Vivo the Coca Lord in Louis de Bernieres Latin American trilogy heck, even Catching Fire was

    My thoughts on this are, you guessed it, complicated This follow up to Annhililation which I LOVED is a very different beast Set shortly after the events of the first book, it is completely different in feeling and in genre It does not take place in Area X but rather in the Southern Reach itself where a new director has been placed who will have to try and figure out what is really going on.There is one thing I am absolutely s

    The author, evidently paid by the word, tells a very long and atmospheric tale, approximately 200 pages overlong An intriguing last few chapters and ending could stand alone as prelude to the final book.
