An Un-Calibrated Centrifuge


Authority: A Novel - Jeff VanderMeer

When I started Authority I liked it just because it's so "normal" compared to Annihilation. Then I realized it's twice as long as Annihilation and nothing happens until the very end.


Authority wasn't good enough to hold my interest in the series so I'm stopping here.

(I read a summary of Acceptance... I think that's the last book and it seems like nothing happens in that one as well?)

(show spoiler)

I waffled on including this under my Diversity on the Shelf tag. I did in the end, but I'm unhappy that Vandermeer went out of his way to write non-white characters but seemingly didn't fight for the casting of non-white actors in those roles for the film.
