    Set in the postapocalyptic universe of Borne, Dead Astronauts tells the story of three characters caught up in an epic battle against the Company, a biotech enterprise that has produced bio engineered creatures and organisms which subsequently changed the face of the earth forever Not only has the environment been destroyed, time and space have lost their meaning, and the three astronauts travel through various versions of the world the City whi

    I have a very self deprecating sense of humor But trust me when I say it s no joke that I am neither intelligent enough or creative enough or abstract thinking enough to appreciate this book I don t want to trash it completely because I can appreciate this for the literary experiment that it is I just don t know that it s a literary experiment that works VanderMeer can string words together on a page better than most, but hot damn, this was a total

    Good news, VanderMeer fans Just look at that cover and imagine, if you will, a book just like a massive acid trip filled with disjointed alternate realities, or reality versions, where men and hybrids, monsters, demons or daemons , foxes, Shrodinger s ducks, and spawning pools populate your colorful biotech apocalypse And then know that the real trip lies within these pages, not on the cover.I say good news for other reasons, however It s not merely a n

    2 5starsthat is a GENGEROUS 2 star because I couldn t fathom giving one of my fave authors a 1I m sorry but this book is fucking NONSENSE Y all know how much I adore my weird literature and I have a VERY high tolerance for I have no clue what s happening, let s roll with it type of stories But this Was NONSENSE Jeff vandermeer s first book in this series Borne remains one of my fave novels of all time but this I swear he realized from borne and annihilation

    Like a dream, the pieces of Dead Astronauts fit together only loosely and often with a logic of their own making Yet those pieces are exquisitely crafted, making it a joy to cobble together, although it is frequently an exhausting effort.A sequel or continuation to the magnificent Borne this is not, yet it goes deep into that world While Borne was a story with some trippy elements, this feels like a hallucinogenic trip with some elements of story Told from the

    Once upon a time, I spoke to three dead astronauts.If there is such a thing as environmental horror, this is it.But no, that s not quite right, because this isn t really horror It slike despair Is despair a genre But no, that s not it either, because sprinkled in these pages of a ruined, poisoned world, is hope Just a bit, but enough.I ve been a fan of Jeff VanderMeer for a long time, ever since Annihilation made its way onto the scene Since then I ve made it my m

    There is a story about James Joyce that s probably apocryphal, but it goes like this A journalist asked Joyce why he made Finnegan s Wake so freaking hard Joyce answered that he just wanted to give critics something to do for the next 300 years Which makes sense If you think of critics as cats, then Finnegan s Wake is basically a literary red laser pointer, keeping them and their pretentious, academic, gatekeeping ways occupied so they ll leave normal people alone to r

    It s always the same with a VanderMeer I hear about it, I go meh and when I read it, I end up entranced and thoroughly enjoying the experience despite or exactly because of its weirdness.This book is labeled as Borne 2 but you don t have to have read Borne in order to understand Dead Astronauts.Yes, the suits of the three astronauts do make a really quick appearance in the first book and we are once again in a world full of the bio engineered creatures the Company first ma

    I am a huge Jeff Vandermeer fan and have been for a long time He is definitely one of my favourite authors and though some of his books left a little to be desired see the last two Annhiliation books in the series this was just alienatingly frustratingI haven t read a book in a long time that has elicited audible groans or frustration for me This felt like an abstract art piece that I just wasn t here for.The writing style was the first thing that bothered me I didn t get it I
