Annihilation

Annihilation (Southern Reach, #1)Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Lovecraft visits the southern coast. The location is never given explicitly – much more is hidden than is explicitly revealed in this wonderfully dark book. I’m not a horror fan, and I’m not sure that this qualifies as such, but I loved this story. The unnamed protagonist is the classic unreliable narrator and she comes to understand that her mind is being transformed by some THING. Annihilation is the best thing I’ve read this year.
