I couldn't stop reading it. Unfortunately, "Authority" is mostly a slog. It's as if the author took the concept of "character back story" to such an extreme that it crowds out the actual story we want to read. On top of it all, every bit of these tedious passages is crammed full of unnecessary metaphors likening even the most prosaic locations and objects to So what do these backstory-rich characters do in the story?

For about three quarters of the book, they engage in the kind of internecine rivalries that you can witness in most office environments or government agencies. Is reading about the passive-aggressive scrimmages between IRS employees your idea of a thrill? Then maybe you'll enjoy this. If you're here for the continuation of the story begun in "Annihilation," you may feel an urge to just give up.

Things pick up a bit toward the final quarter of the book, with the startling suddenness of being woken from a nap by a paddle smacked on your backside.

It's a bit jarring, but you feel grateful for the change. Not that you get any answers about Area X or any of the other enigmas introduced in the first book.

Well, okay, maybe one, kind of sort of. But not really.

Anyway, if you made it this far, you might as well start reading "Acceptance," which is a far better book. Setting you up for the finale is about all "Authority" accomplishes. It's a shame there's no CliffsNotes for it; what's in it that you need to know to enjoy the third part of the trilogy would fit on far fewer pages. Jeff VanderMeer's Annihilation is very much modernized H.

Lovecraft with intensely vivid prose that, at times, felt like Cormac McCarthy taking a stab of weird-science fiction; Authority is not that. The Lovecraftian undertones are gone. The first-person perspective is gone which makes sense, because Annihilation was simply a journal. But it's still weird as heck. When this novel came out, I'm sure people didn't know how to define it, or what to compare it with. And even now, people are probably not understanding it because they saw the movie which is a masterpiece but nothing like Jeff VanderMeer's own masterpiece and neither Annihilation or Authority are anything like the movie.

Let the movie be its own thing.

Let the book and book series be its own thing. You should not expect a mainstream, streamline, popular fiction novel. Expect weird, intelligent horror; expect weird, intelligent humor. Jeff VanderMeer does not place his scares or his jokes on a golden platter like Stephen King does-but that's okay, Stephen King admits that he's the Big Mac and fries of writers; VanderMeer is more like organic, gluten-free, free-range, grass-fed, sugar free sushi ; he doesn't dumb it down for the reader-you get it, or you don't; you understand his sense of humor, or you don't.

The weirdness of the questions is what drives the story, not the answers. The answers really don't matter. Authority is one of my favorite novels of all time, and yet if you're expecting an action packed, science fiction, horror-thriller extravaganza, I cannot recommend this book for you. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I liked the biologist in Annihilation. She was no-nonsense and told the story very well and that book wonderfully painted the world of Area X and its creepiness.

I got goosebumps and couldn't stop reading it. THIS book, however, it the reading equivalent of chewing an underdone steak for half an hour. It just goes on and on and you really just wanted the meat and you're so hungry for the story , but it gets lost in all the chewing, so you end up just irritated.

I only kept reading this book because I wanted to know about Area X and what the Southern Reach was hiding. This book only provided some answers and focused way more on Control and his family issues.

Over and over again. I did not sign up for that.

I would highly suggest reading the Southern Reach trilogy in order-its not going to help a ton-but it does give you some back story. Control is getting acclimated to his new position, sparring with the assistant director, interviewing an individual from the previous expedition, meeting all the other weirdos that work for the Southern Reach and Central.

If you're hoping for something more conclusive from the first book, you're not going to get it. This book just opens up a whole other host of questions. The main character has several strange encounters and while he waded through detritus of several clues they really don't lead him anywhere. He doesn't follow through on so much, it ends up being annoying.

If he's the most prominent choice Central had to promote to director, to uncover all the odd things going on, then I feel sorry for them-because this dude is basically doing nothing. Things you think are important, events that seem as if they're significant turn out to be nothing.

There are countless inessential characters and events. I had high hopes after the first book, Annihilation, but my expectations after reading this one are wobbling their way downhill.
