My dad once said to me, "You give a lot of books three stars." I do.
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.(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.
