    Set in the postapocalyptic universe of Borne, Dead Astronauts tells the story of three characters caught up in an epic battle against the Company, a biotech enterprise that has produced bio engineered creatures and organisms which subsequently changed the face of the earth forever Not only has the environment been destroyed, time and space have

    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 th

    Good news, VanderMeer fans Just look at that cover and imagine, if you will, a book just like a massive acid trip filled with disjointed alternate realities, or reality versions, where men and hybrids, monsters, demons or daemons , foxes, Shrodinger s ducks, and spawning pools populate your colorful biotech apocalypse And then know that the real t

    It s always the same with a VanderMeer I hear about it, I go meh and when I read it, I end up entranced and thoroughly enjoying the experience despite or exactly because of its weirdness.This book is labeled as Borne 2 but you don t have to have read Borne in order to understand Dead Astronauts.Yes, the suits of the three astronauts do make a really qu

    I am a huge Jeff Vandermeer fan and have been for a long time He is definitely one of my favourite authors and though some of his books left a little to be desired see the last two Annhiliation books in the series this was just alienatingly frustratingI haven t read a book in a long time that has elicited audible groans or frustration for me This felt l
