Under the watchful eye of The Company, three characters Grayson, Morse and Chen shapeshifters, amorphous, part human, part extensions of the landscape, make their way through forces that would consume them A blue fox, a giant fish and language stretched to the limit.A messianic blue fox who slips through warrens of time and space on a mysterious mission A homeless woman haunted by a demon who finds the key to all things in a strange journal A giant leviathan of a fish, centuries old, who hides a secret, remembering a past that may not be its own Three ragtag rebels waging an endless war for the fate of the world against an all powerful corporation A raving madman who wanders the desert lost in the past, haunted by his own creation an invisible monster whose name he has forgotten and whose purpose remains hidden.Jeff VanderMeer s Dead Astronauts presents a City with no name of its own where, in the shadow of the all powerful Company, lives human and otherwise converge in terrifying and miraculous ways At stake the fate of the future, the fate of Earth all the Earths.

    I have a very self deprecating sense of humor But trust me when I say it s no joke that I am neither intelligent enough or creative enough or abstract thinking enough to appreciate this book I don t want to trash it completely because I can appreciate this for the literary experiment that it is I just don t know that it s a literary experiment that works.VanderMeer can string w...

    Like a dream, the pieces of Dead Astronauts fit together only loosely and often with a logic of their own making Yet those pieces are exquisitely crafted, making it a joy to cobble together, although it is frequently an exhausting effort.A sequel or continuation to the magnificent Borne this is not, yet it goes deep into that world While Borne was a story with some trippy elements, this feels like a hallucinogenic trip with some elements of story Told from the perspective of many narrators Like a dream, the pieces of Dead Astronauts fit together only loosely and often with a logic of their own making Yet those pieces are exquisitely crafted, making it a joy to cobble together, although it is frequently an exhausting effort.A sequel or continuation to the magnificent Borne this is not, yet it goes deep into that world While Borne was a story with some trippy elements, this feels like a hallucinogenic trip with some elements of story Told from the perspective of many narrators and timelines, and alternate realities, the identiti...

    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 Jeff returns to the world of...

    Dead Astronauts is the second novel in Vandermeer s Borne World For those of us who haven t previously stepped through the sticky portals into this treacherous world, it is an unnerving experience And, our journey is not made any easier by the format which eschews traditional exposition and tangles with wondrous prose and sometimes devolves into things that there are few poetic licenses for Don t expect all the answers or even a leveling off of your confusion Just absorb the imagery and the Dead Astronauts is the second novel in Vandermeer s Borne World For those of us who haven t previously stepped through the sticky portals into this treacherous world, it is an unnerving experience And, our journey is not made any easier by the format which eschews...

    We are back in Borne world, but unlike Borne and The Strange Bird A Borne Story both five stars for me you need to leave your notions of time and space at the door and follow Schrodinger s cat into other states of being animal, vegetable, mineral, or some uncanny combo of the three, dead or alive Vandermeer starts the reader off gently with 100 pages of a relatively straightforward story of three unusual warriors who travel through time to destroy The Company Their love for each other is We are back in Borne world, but unlike Borne and The Strange Bird A Borne Story both five stars for me you need to leave your notions of time and space at the door and follow Schrodinger s cat into other states of being animal, vegetable, mineral, or some uncanny combo of the three, dead or alive Vandermeer starts the reader off gently with 100 pages of a relatively straightforward story of three unusual warriors who travel through time to destroy The Company Their love for each other is truly a beautiful thing And then the wheels come off in a good way For me, the best way to read after this point was to go fast, let the story wash ov...

    Jeff Vandermeer returns to his experimentally stylistic writing roots in this soft prequel to Borne Quite a confident and ballsy move on his part, as it s sure to totally polarize readers and shock the hell out of his newer Southern Reach fanbase Personally, I m a fan of weird fiction Bring on the bizarre, baby Especially if it builds onto the world of the Company and the dead astronauts, and the strange manipulated creatures that haunt the tidal pools and holding ponds and desert lands Jeff Vandermeer returns to his experimentally stylistic writing roots in this soft prequel to Borne Quite a confident and ballsy move on his part, as it s sure to totally polarize readers and shock the hell out of his newer Southern Reach fanbase Personally...
