Annihilation: One Bizzare, Fantastic, Wild Ride.
If you're looking for something different than your traditional space opera, or the popular dystopian fiction, then give Annihilation a try.
Area X has claimed the lives of members of eleven expeditions. The twelfth expedition consisting of four women hopes to map the terrain and collect specimens; to record all their observations, scientific and otherwise, of their surroundings and of one another; and, above all, to avoid being contaminated by Area X itself.
Its difficult to know where to begin with this journey into Area X. Quite quickly the expedition takes a sudden change, and the world of Area X takes off into wildly imaginative directions. I can say that after picking it up, I was unable to put the book down. Luckily its only a few hundred pages and can be read pretty quickly.
To say too much will give away information that you will want to discover on your own. The most I can say is that I will eagerly await the next book in the "Southern Reach Trilogy.
