My Four Star Review of Annihilation , First Book in the Southern Reach Trilogy

I wonder if I’ll come back to this book after reading the rest of the trilogy and like it even more. You’ve read the synopsis, so I won’t bother to repeat it here. I will, however, echo what has been said in previous reviews. The book is beautifully written, surreal, uncanny. It’s an easy read, and you’ll finish it in a few days. But as much as I liked the book, I didn’t love it as much as I wanted to. I’m honestly not sure why. The book seemed empty, in a way. Sorta like when you go to a fancy restaurant and the presentation is stunning but there isn’t all that much food? I need a little bit more meat and potatoes in my diet. Still, well worth the read, and I am excited about the next one.
