Two days after finishing Borne, the latest read in my Vandermeer streak, and I am still not okay because I have all the feels for an inhuman murderous squid tentacle monster.
I’ll try and break down what this book is about, with only minimal spoilers.
BORNE is a personal story of found families, lost children, broken homes, and couples trying to “make it work” against the odds.
BORNE is an epic story about monsters, humanity, and the incredible struggle of people who wish to be good but cannot stop being evil.
BORNE is a science fantasy story about a post-apocalyptic world overrun by biotech/wetware, all of it as beautiful and ingenious as it is insane and deadly.
BORNE is everything I look for in a speculative fiction novel, and if you are a fan of this genre, you cannot afford to miss this modern classic.
