    As She Climbed Across the Table (tekijä: Jonathan Lethem) (sturlington)
    sturlington: I feel VanderMeer must have been reading early Jonathan Lethem when he wrote the Southern Reach trilogy, as well as watching old episodes of Lost.

I've never been more confused nor more in love. The writing in this book is gorgeous and challenging. Fantastic end to an amazing trilogy. ( )

So here we are at the end of the trilogy, and we learned everything there is to know about Area X.

ha ha ha!

just kidding!

Granted, we know a lot about the people involved with the whole situation, but in the end, Area X remains as mysterious as it has been all along. Did it come from outer space? Is it a worm hole? Is it a portal to another dimension or alternate universe? Maybe! Yes! No! Who knows?

(Granted, in spite of the fact that I'm not actually all that dumb, sometimes I am remarkably.... DENSE... at noticing things, or making connections or just GETTING it. So take that as a disclaimer that maybe I'm totally wrong and everything is spelled out as clearly as if it were written on the walls in glowing fungus)

This book had quite a bit of creepiness to it, and sadness and WTF-ery (WTF-iness?), which is all more-or-less my jam, and I enjoyed it quite a bit. Even if I'm still clueless about a lot of it. But I guess if it was all entirely clear then it wouldn't be considered WEIRD, huh? ( )

I loved it, even though it strays even further from the Annihilation-style compact single story than Authority does. A satisfying conclusion to the trilogy despite (because of?) the questions it leaves unanswered. I can't make up my mind which of the stories I like more, Ghost Bird, Saul, or the Director. ( )

True horror is extremely difficult to come across these days. Thanks to CG in movies, horror has devolved into a cartoonish mess. (Most) Writers, meanwhile, focus on the grotesque, leaving little to the imagination. VanderMeer skips all that, building horror out of being present in a place rather than what really inhabits it. Sadly, it’s mired in pacing issues with the boring parts outnumbering the exciting ones.

Annihilation’s beginning is atrociously slow, leaving the reader in total mystery. It isn’t until the second act that the horror truly unfolds through slow, sweet build-up. There’s palpable tension between the characters, though most of them are utterly forgettable. It’s the Psychologist and the Biologist who really shine through. Unfortunately, even their characterizations feel ponderous and heavy, with the author often spending huge chunks of text on their feelings that don’t really matter in the grand scheme of things.

Area X is a character unto itself, and boy oh boy, it shines more than the others. Beautiful and innocuous on the outside, but holds deep, dark secrets on the inside that are terrifying for human minds to fully comprehend. It’s host to both innocent and monstrous creatures who can be heard deep in the night. It’s also host to the Tower, which is a mystery unto itself.

The second book in the trilogy, Authority, focuses on Southern Reach, the enigmatic organization behind the expeditions. Not only is it very different from the first, it’s also much slower and even more ponderous, which I thought was impossible. We’re introduced to Control, who I felt was sloppy and had massive mommy issues. He almost reminded me of Archer, but not in a good way. The book mostly deals with office politics, showing how inept the organization truly is. It was refreshing to see mysterious behind-the-scenes organizations to be investigated, but damn, I wasn’t expecting this…

The book is slow as molasses and hosts only a few moments of true terror. Writing about any of them would be spoilers, so go ahead and read the book. Sadly, you’ll have to deal with a lot of unpleasantness before you can get to these fantastic scenes.

Acceptance, the final book in the trilogy, is easily much better. Much better pacing and characterization await. So does Area X in all its glory. The mystery unfolds and reveals its guts to only leave you asking for more. However, it doesn’t really expand much on the lore built in the last two books. It’s content staying where it is, instead raising even more questions that won’t be answered.

Most people compare the Southern Reach trilogy with Lovecraftian horror. See, the thing about horror isn’t really fear or anxiety, but a terrible dislike or repugnance towards something. There’s only one thing that was truly scary in these three books, and that too was revealed to be pathetic in a later act. Yes, the series doesn’t really have anything horrifying, or at least I didn’t feel that way, it does capture a sense of terribleness towards Area X and its denizens, especially those revealed in the last book. You feel disgusted by the organism and how it works, not truly terrified by its powers. Like Lovecraft, VanderMeer captures the essence of cosmic horror quite well, showing off how alien aliens can be. But sadly, like Lovecraft, his creations are dragged down by pacing and language.

Overall, if you’re feeling patient and up for a somewhat slow walk through nature, I recommend this trilogy. If you’re looking for fast action, skip. ( )

[T]he real accomplishment of these books lies less in their well-designed plots than in VanderMeer’s incredibly evocative, naturalist eye....

At its best, VanderMeer’s language is precise, metaphorical but rigorous, and as fertile as good loam. More than mere atmosphere, the rich natural details are the trilogy’s most powerful technique — and, in some ways, its point....

With Area X, VanderMeer has created an immersive and wonderfully realized world; I wouldn’t be surprised if he revisits it. If so, I’ll happily sign up for the next expedition.
 
One peculiar satisfaction of being a reader is seeing an author you have followed for a long time finally break into the big time. VanderMeer has been a favourite among aficionados of New Weird fiction for more than a decade, exploring his fascinations with fungi, subterranean spaces and decay across half a dozen books. But with his Southern Reach trilogy – Annihilation, Authority and Acceptance, all released in 2014 – he has finally hit the bestseller lists. And with good reason. This trilogy is a modern mycological masterpiece.

Finding a way satisfactorily to pay off so much mysteriously tense apprehension is no small challenge for a writer – and VanderMeer manages to avoid banality and opacity both, and generates some real emotional charge while he's about it.
