Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Short little read that is a lesson in building suspense. Some women (no names given, just referred to by their titles) are taken to Area X to explore and report on what they find. We don't know much, and have to rely on the observations of The Biologist as she explores with the group. She has many flashbacks though (too many for me) and we find out that her husband was involved in an earlier expedition to Area X and came back mentally guarded and absent. After finishing this little book, there are still many questions that I assume will be answered in Book 2 and 3 of the series.
