A hazy rainbow-doused story that steadily wraps you into its mystifying web. Annihilation heavily relies on dream logic as it moves into deeper terrain and winds together elements of philosophy and psychology, while also inducing both fear and wonder. It has so much to say about, well, everything, and it compacts so tightly into what feels like a hundred chapters, only slowly allowing it all to unravel and spill out into its rich, meticulous narrative. It is a constantly mutating puzzle.
I already know that this one is gonna haunt me for awhile.
