Weekly Book Wrap Up

Annihilation (Southern Reach, #1)Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

OK first of all, this isn't really a 4 star book, more like a 3 star, but because I did enjoy reading it, read it in 2 days, and I am curious as to what is going on, the book gets a 4. My biggest problem with this book is you have this whole new area to explore and discover and write about, but I didn't think the author had enough world building to fully do that. I understand the book is set in a limited area, but it didn't really feel like that area was written about well enough. There are some parts that are described so well you knew they would show up someway in the story later, the lighthouse for example, I wish that every setting in the story was described as much as the lighthouse was. But I enjoy world building so this might not bug anyone else lol
