Area X has been cut off from the rest of the continent for decades. Nature has reclaimed the last vestiges of human civilization. The first expedition returned with reports of a pristine, Edenic landscape; all the members of the second expedition committed suicide; the third expedition died in a hail of gunfire as its members turned on one another; the members of the eleventh expedition returned as shadows of their former selves, and within months of their return, all had died of aggressive cancer. This is the twelfth expedition. Their group is made up of four women: an anthropologist, a surveyor, a psychologist--the de facto leader--and a biologist, who is our narrator. Their mission is to map the terrain and collect specimens, to record all their observations, scientific and otherwise, of their surroundings and of one another and, above all, to avoid being contaminated by Area X itself. They arrive expecting the unexpected, and Area X delivers--they discover a massive topographic anomaly and life forms that surpass understanding--but it's the surprises that came across the border with them and the secrets the expedition members are keeping from one another that change everything.… (mais)

    Roadside Picnic por Arkady Strugatsky (Tuirgin, jeroenvandorp)
    Tuirgin: The Strugatsky Bros.' Roadside Picnic seems to be a touchstone of the Southern Reach Trilogy—and this continues with greater parallels in Authority. The styles of writing are entirely different, but the concept of Area X is a definite echo of the Zone. Roadside Picnic is a classic of European Science Fiction and well worth reading.… (mais)

An interesting but hard read. I will have to read again sometime in the future as I know there are parts that slipped by me. ( )

Τα σχόλια που ακολουθούν δεν κάνουν αποκαλύψεις σχετικά με την πλοκή, αλλά δίνουν αρκετά στοιχεία για το τι θα συναντήσει ο αναγνώστης σε θέματα γραφής και λύσεων όσων ανεξήγητων συναντάμε εντός του μυθιστορήματος.


Αυτό το βιβλίο μου άφησε ανάμικτα συναισθήματα. Θα μπορούσα να το αξιολογήσω και με τρία αστέρια, αλλά επέλεξα τέσσερα γιατί έχει στοιχεία που δεν βρίσκεις εύκολα σε αντίστοιχα αφηγήματα.

Ο Vandermeer ανανεώνει τη Λαβκράφτια γραφή με μαεστρία. Αυτός είναι ο βασικότερος λόγος που επιλέγω τέσσερα αστέρια και όχι τρία. Το βιβλίο είναι μια συνεχόμενη προσωπική καταγραφή των εμπειριών που βιώνει η πρωταγωνίστρια, και παραδόξως, παρά τους ελάχιστους διαλόγους και τις επίμονες περιγραφές (πολύ καλύτερες από αυτές του Λάβκραφτ), η ιστορία ρέει, οι σελίδες γυρνούν και σχεδόν κάθε κεφάλαιο κλείνει ωθώντας (θα έλεγα υποσυνείδητα και όχι με βία - ακόμα ένα Λαβκράφτιο χαρακτηριστικό) τον αναγνώστη να ξεκινήσει την ανάγνωση του επόμενου.

Δυστυχώς, δεν ανήκω στους αναγνώστες που απολαμβάνουν ιστορίες των οποίων οι δημιουργοί αρέσκονται να αφήνουν αναπάντητα ερωτήματα και ανεξήγητα στοιχεία, τα οποία εξ αρχής είναι αυτά που με κάνουν να ξεκινήσω την ανάγνωση. Δεν απαιτώ την απόλυτη εξήγηση, όπου δεν μου επιτρέπεται κανένας προσωπικός προβληματισμούς μετά το κλείσιμο του βιβλίου, αλλά οπωσδήποτε έχω την απαίτηση ο συγγραφέας να με πείσει πως γνώριζε από την αρχή τι ήθελε να γράψει.

Αυτός είναι ο λόγος όπου το βιβλίο δεν λαμβάνει από εμένα το απόλυτο πέντε και με οδηγεί να αμφιταλαντευτώ ανάμεσα στο τρία και το τέσσερα. Και αν τελικά δίνω τέσσερα είναι γιατί ο Vandermeer με πείθει πως ξέρει πολύ καλά τι συμβαίνει εντός της Area X, αλλά επιλέγει να μην μου αποκαλύψει τίποτα και να με αφήσει να εικάσω ό,τι επιθυμώ.

Κι έτσι εικάζω τα ακόλουθα:

Το Annihilation είναι μια ιστορία για ενοχές που νιώθουμε εξαιτίας πράξεων, των οποίων δεν έχουμε τον έλεγχο. Για ενοχές οι οποίες μας βασανίζουν οδηγώντας μας στη μοναξιά και την εσωτερική απομόνωση. Για επιλογές, οι οποίες λαμβάνονται ενώ ακόμα ψάχνουμε να βρούμε τη θέση με στον κόσμο, που τελικά δεν είναι και τόσο επιλογές, μιας και μας επιβάλλονται. Για βιώματα και καταστάσεις οι οποίες μας πλάθουν και μας οδηγούν θέλοντας και μη σε αποφάσεις οι οποίες είναι ήδη προγραμματισμένες βαθιά μέσα μας, εξαιτίας αυτών των πρωταρχικών, εκβιασμένων επιλογών. Κάποιοι σε κάποιο σημείο της ζωής τους έχουν την τύχη να βιώσουν μια βαθιά αποκάλυψη, και μονάχα τότε να συμφιλιωθούν με το αναπόφευκτο των όσων συνέβησαν και απλώς να συνεχίσουν το ταξίδι τους (στο άγνωστο), έχοντας αλλάξει ριζικά και έχοντας απελευθερωθεί από όσα τους βάραιναν μέχρι εκείνη τη στιγμή.

Was für ein krauses Zeugs: kryptisch - überambitioniert - voll von pseudointellektuellem Geschwafel und Selbstbetrachtungen der Protagonistin. Vielleicht stellt es sich nach dem 3. Band als großartig heraus, bin aber derzeit nicht sicher, ob ich die Reihe überhaupt weiterlesen soll. Sehr ärgerlich, dass der dt. Verlag die folgenden Bände noch bis in's nächste Jahr zurückhält. Entweder lade ich mir noch heute die engl. Ausgabe auf den Kindle, oder ich lasse es ganz. ( )

3.5 would be more accurate...

So, on the one hand this perplexing story is wonderful and packed with detailed imagery that brings the world to light, but on the other I'm not entirely sure I understand what happened. I want to rate it higher because I enjoyed the story, but I simply cant bring myself to do it when I had (and still have) no idea what was going on for 80% of this book. The ending seemed to sum it up nicely, but I haven't the faintest idea what it summed up! I know it wasn't supposed to be easy to follow, and the concept seemed to be of something unexplained and unexplainable, but there are other books that have done this better.

Still worth reading, but not a favourite. ( )

Atemberaubend!
 
...strange, clever, off-putting, maddening, claustrophobic, occasionally beautiful, occasionally disturbing and altogether fantastic...Annihilation is a book meant for gulping — for going in head-first and not coming up for air until you hit the back cover.
adicionada por zhejw | editarNPR, Jason Sheehan (Feb 7, 2014)
 
"Annihilation," in which the educated and analytical similarly meets up with the inhuman, is a clear triumph for Vandermeer, who after numerous works of genre fiction has suddenly transcended genre with a compelling, elegant and existential story of far broader appeal.

The tower, which was not supposed to be there, plunges into the earth in a place just before the black pine forest begins to give way to swamp and then the reeds and wind-gnarled trees of the marsh flats. Beyond the marsh flats and the natural canals lies the ocean and, a little farther down the coast, a derelict lighthouse. All of this part of the country had been abandoned for decades, for reasons that are not easy to relate. Our expedition was the first to enter Area X for more than two years, and much of our predecessors’ equipment had rusted, their tents and sheds little more than husks. Looking out over that untroubled landscape, I do not believe any of us could yet see the threat.

Desolation tries to colonize you.
"Annihilation!" she shrieked at me, flailing in confusion.  "Annihilation! Annihilation!" The word seemed more meaningless the more she repeated it, like the cry of a bird with a broken wing.
