Borne, Jeff Vandermeer’s expressive and nerve racking new novel, might be the most flawlessly composed, and reasonable, post-prophetically catastrophic story in late memory: An impressive accomplishment, considering “Borne” highlights not only a not so distant future, anonymous city; a tremendous, conscious, calamitously ruinous bioengineered bear; and the charming astute cephalopod who gives the book its title.
Be that as it may, then Mord wakes to step over the city, a high rise estimated, bad dream vision of the grizzly from “The Revenant,” or a gathering of flickering foxes hasten over the far off vestiges like emissaries from a Miyazaki film; and Vandermeer’s developed universe rises afresh.
- This story centers around the apocalypse and is a great story about survival and relationships
- A mythical creature is found by the main heroin on the shore and she wonders what it is
- As the creature begins to grow she begins to wonder what it is and what is going to happen
“Borne,” Jeff Vandermeer’s lyrical and harrowing new novel, may be the most beautifully written, and believable, post-apocalyptic tale in recent memory:”
