    Jeff returns to the world of BORNE and goes full weird, with a narrative that splinters across every level the molecular, the sentence, the pagination, all of it The density of this book is going to fuck up some people who have only read ANNIHILATION and BORNE, but I hope they fight through it There is no clean narrative here, except for the one that Jeff has always delivered that nature hasin it than we dream of in our philosophy, and that we must doto be in harmony with the wor Jeff returns to the world of BORNE and goes full weird, with a narrative that splinters across every level the molecular, the sentence, the pagination, all of it The density of this book is going to fuck up some people who have only ...

    It s poetic, beautiful, and dark at the same time Jeff VanderMeer combines the literary and perceptual to take science fiction and readers to new places What I loved most about this book is the unique approach VanderMeer takes to storytelling.
