Description

‘A contemporary masterpiece’ Guardian

THE THIRD VOLUME OF THE EXTRAORDINARY SOUTHERN REACH TRILOGY – NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY ALEX GARLAND (EX MACHINA) AND STARRING NATALIE PORTMAN, OSCAR ISAAC, GINA RODRIGUEZ AND TESSA THOMPSON

One last, desperate team embarks across the border, determined to reach a remote island that may hold the answers they’ve been seeking. As they press deeper into the unknown, the threat to the outside world becomes only more daunting.

The mysteries of Area X may have been solved, but their consequences and implications are no less profound – or terrifying.

Publisher Review

Praise for the SOUTHERN REACH TRILOGY: 'I'm loving the Southern Reach Trilogy ... Creepy and fascinating' Stephen King 'Hauntingly weird and brilliantly new ... These are contemporary masterpieces and career-defining novels' Adam Robert, Books of the Year, Guardian 'This trilogy is a modern mycological masterpiece ... Remarkable ... Tense, eerie and unsettling ... VanderMeer writes much better prose than Poe ever did ... This is genuinely potent and dream-haunting writing. VanderMeer has arrived.' Guardian 'A teeming science fiction that draws on Conrad and Lovecraft alike ... "Annihilation" shows signs of being the novel that will allow VanderMeer to break through to a new and larger audience' Sunday Telegraph 'A lasting monument to the uncanny ... You find yourself afraid to turn the page' Guardian 'VanderMeer's novel is a psycho-geographical tour de force, channelling Ballard and Lovecraft to instil the reader with a deep, delicious unease' Financial Times 'What a haunting book this is, lodging deep in the memory in similar fashion to otherworldly classics such as David Lindsay's "A Voyage To Arcturus" ... "Annihilation" is so disquietingly strange as to defy summarisation. Read it' Daily Mail 'Astonishing, frightening, spectacular ... The imaginative daring and reach with which VanderMeer has invented and executed a concept such as Area X is breathtaking ... Powerful and echoing ... I hope the trilogy will come to be seen not only as the instant sci-fi classic it is, but also as Literature' New Statesman 'Immersive, insightful and often deeply bloody creepy, this is a startlingly good novel ... A major work' ***** SFX Magazine 'A tense and chilling psychological thriller about an unravelling expedition and the strangeness within us. A little Kubrick, a lot of Lovecraft, the novel builds with an unbearable tension and claustrophobic dread that lingers long afterwards. I loved it' Lauren Beukes 'Original and beautiful, maddening and magnificent' Warren Ellis
