The first volume of the extraordinary Southern Reach trilogy - now a major motion picture written and directed by Alex Garland (Ex Machina) and starring Natalie Portman and Oscar Isaac.
For thirty years, Area X has remained mysterious and remote behind its intangible border – an environmental disaster zone, though to all appearances an abundant wilderness. The Southern Reach, a secretive government agency, has sent eleven expeditions to investigate Area X. One has ended in mass suicide, another in a hail of gunfire, the eleventh in a fatal cancer epidemic. Now four women embark on the twelfth expedition into the unknown.



"A tense and chilling psychological thriller about an unravelling expedition and the strangeness within us. A little Kubrick, a lot of Lovecraft, the novel builds with an unbearable tension and claustrophobic dread that lingers long afterwards. I loved it." (Lauren Beukes, award-winning author of Zoo City and The Shining Girls)
"Original and beautiful, maddening and magnificent." (Warren Ellis)
"One of those books where it all comes together - the story and the prose and the ideas, all braided into a triple helix that gives rise to something vibrant and alive. Something that grows, word-by-word, into powerful, tangled vines that creep into your mind and take hold of it. Annihilation is brilliant and atmospheric, a novel that has the force of myth." (Charles Yu, author of How to Live in a Science Fictional Universe)
"A contemporary masterpiece." (The Guardian)

Nicht gerade ein "Must-Read"

An manchen Stellen des Buches merkt man, dass der Autor wirklich spannend erzählen kann. Leider vergisst er die längste Zeit darauf, es auch mal zu tun.
Genauso bahnt sich besonders gegen Ende des Buches eine interessante und fesselnde Geschichte an.... die nur leider vorbei ist bevor sie so wirklich angefangen hat.

Das Buch war jetzt nicht direkt schlecht, aber meiner Meinung nach nichts dass man auf keinen Fall verpassen will und auch nichts dass einen bleibenden Eindruck hinterlässt.
