Pdf ↠ Annihilation ½ Jeff VanderMeer Μια τετραμελής ομάδα –μια ψυχολόγος μια βιολόγος μια ανθρωπολόγος και μια χωρομέτρης– στέλνεται να εξερευνήσει την αποκλεισμένη μυστηριώδη Περιοχή Χ είναι η δωδέκατη αποστολή που αναλαμβάνει τούτη την εξερεύνηση Εκεί μες στην παρθένα ερημιά όπου δεν απομένουν παρά μόνο τα χαλάσματα ενός εγκαταλειμμένου χωριού τα τέσσερα μέλη βρίσκουν έναν μυστηριώδη πύργ? ”but whether it decays under the earth or above on green fields or out to sea or in the very air all shall come to revelation and to revel in the knowledge of the strangling fruit and the hand of the sinner shall rejoice for there is no sin in shadow or in light that the seeds of the dead cannot forgive” An Anthropologist a Surveyor a Psychologist and a Biologist all female make up the 12th expedition to AREA X The expeditions that have come to this region before have not fared well They have disappeared They have come home mere shells of themselves and died of cancer They have turned on one another and killed each other There is a reason why the expedition members are only known by their field of expertise ”I had not seen a name or heard a name spoken aloud for months and seeing one now bothered me deeply It seemed wrong as if it did not belong to AREA X A name was a dangerous luxury here Sacrifice didn’t need names People who served a function didn’t need to be named In all ways the name was a further an unwanted confusion to me a dark space that kept growing and growing in my mind” It does make you wonder why someone would volunteer knowing the outcomes of the previous missions The problem is AREA X keeps expanding and there is a growing concern that it will continue to encroach on the rest of the world The expeditions though unsuccessful must be achieving something Our narrator is the Biologist We find out as the story continues that her husband had volunteered to go on the previous expedition He had returned like the others with something essential missing inside A part of her believes as crazy as it seems that the segment of him that is missing is still in AREA X somewhere The area is also filled with unlikely plants insects and as it turns out one species that doesn’t belong anywhere ”As I adjusted to the light the Crawler kept changing at a lightning pace as if to mock my ability to comprehend it It was a figure within a series of refracted panes of glass It was a series of layers in the shape of an archway It was a great sluglike monster ringed by satellites of even odder creatures It was a glistening star My eyes kept glancing off of it as if an optic nerve was not enough”What do you do when nothing makes sense? What do you do when the most basic sensory parts of yourself are not functioning properly? You process information and gaps come up than explanations of something you desperately need to understand ”What can you do when your five senses are not enough? Because I still couldn’t truly see it here any than I had seen it under the microscope and that’s what scared me the most Why couldn’t I see it?”She can feel the area changing her She calls it “the brightness” She isn’t sure what it is doing to her She just knows she feels different ”There shall be a fire that knows your name and in the presence of the strangling fruit its dark flame shall acuire every part of you” There is a tower or is there a tunnel? The expedition members disagree about what to call it A bit of a mind bend because one is decidedly different than the other There is a lighthouse and signs of the previous expeditions are etched in the red splatter on the walls and the bullet holes in barricades The Biologist finds evidence that the information they had been told was not just lies but epic untruths As the expedition gets smaller she becomes and desperate to understand why AREA X exists ”We all live in a kind of continuous dream “ I told him her husband “When we wake it is because something some event some pinprick even disturbs the edges of what we’ve taken as reality”She needs a pinprick a slice of reality a garden variety truth that will realign her thoughts and allow her to understand something anything I’ve read several Jeff Vandermeer books and been blown away each and every time His vision is so uniue; and his ability as he does in this book to have me holding my breath with each new revelation is startlingly unnervingly brilliant He conceives the inconceivable and totally convinces you that it can exist You shudder and shake for a few days and then after a few interesting nightmares you start to recover your euilibrium Your mind has been permanently alteredYou might feel a “brightness” You might start a journal logging all these unusual thoughts that keep buzzing around in your headlike spores sliding down the slopes of your brain You might even decide you need to volunteer for Expedition 13 as The Reader If you wish to see of my most recent book and movie reviews visit also have a Facebook blogger page at

Annihilationεφ Βάντερμιερ στον Αφανισμό βραβευμένο με το Βραβείο Nebula το 2014 το πρώτο μυθιστόρημα της Τριλογίας της Νότιας Ζώνης πλάθει μια εφιαλτική και συνάμα μαγευτική μα εντελώς μοναδική ιστορία επιστημονικής φαντασίας ένα από εκείνα τα σπάνια βιβλία που εντέλει και παρά τις όποιες ομοιότητες και αναφορές στέκουν μόνα τους δίχως στην πραγματικότητα να έχουν όμοιό τους “Silence creates its own violence”My initial reaction BUT WHAT DOES IT MEANAnd I'm still sitting here wondering and pondering This novel was spectacular in every aspect The best books are those that keep their secrets to themselves Those that don't tell you everything that make you desperate for information that you will not receive It's the mystery that keeps one interested the depths that you want to explore They make your fingers tremble because you want to touch everything know the answer to every uestion You want the silver platter a glass filled with red wine and a bowl with all the unaswered riddles But the author would rather let you die of thirst than serve them to youThat's what I live for Stories that leave me breathless There are fantastic books out there But those that tell me all their secrets will fade from memory Now that I know how else will you keep me interested?Find of my books on Instagram
