A review by leflambeur
Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer


I picked this up because I just loved VanderMeer's book Finch which combined the best aspects of a detective procedural with a world in which sentient fungi co-exist with people. As strange as it sounds he pulled it off. So was shocked at how much I disliked Annihilation. I rarely quit a book in the middle, but I just kept hoping it would turn around and redeem itself. I should have quit.
