Acceptance (Southern Reach #3) Reviews

  • Wei Lien Chin

    That's it? Well, I must admit, I feel a little hoodwinked.

    Acceptance is a noticeably better book than Authority, but that is not saying a lot, considering that the second book in the series is dreadful in every sense of the word. Just when you thought that the middle chapter of a trilogy cannot get any more weighted down, Authority showed up to prove us all wrong. Every page towards the end felt like a sucker punch to the guts, and it took great determination to pick up the next and final book

    From my blog: https://clsiewert.wordpress.com/2014/...

    Once again, Vandermeer astonishes me with evocative, symbolic language:

    “The fifth morning I rose from the grass and dirt and sand, the brightness had gathered to form a hushed second skin over me, that skin cracking from my opening eyes like the slightest, the briefest, touch of an impossibly thin later of ice. I could hear the fracturing of its melting as if it came from miles and years away.“

    And once again, Area X takes center stage in the

    I saved this book to read until I was on a trip to Florida, so it had been about six months since reading book #2 in this trilogy. At first a few of the details that are referenced were specifics I had forgotten, but it made more sense as I went on.

    There are some answers in this book, some of what I was expecting, some that was surprising and more disturbing. A very good finish to the trilogy and I was glad to read all three in one year. I know this was an impossible feat but I wish more trilogi

    Area X was looking at her through dead eyes. Area X was analyzing her from all sides. It made her feel like an outline created by the regard bearing down on her, one that moved only because the regard moved with her, held her constituent atoms together in a coherent shape. And yet the eyes upon her felt familiar.

    I'm not sure why none of these books have captured me like Annihilation. There was just something about those four nameless female scientists that held me rapt and it has not been repe

    This is a tough one to rate. I'm giving it 4 stars ("I really liked it") based on the whole trilogy, and I think this is the strongest book in the series.

    This is impossible to review without spoilers, so here are some garbled comments! I like how this book goes back and forth in time. I absolutely adored getting to know Seth and Cynthia, who were great characters. I even came to see how Control, who was so "meh" in the last book, is important to the story. I'm happy with the explanation of what

    Wow, this book. Wow, this series. I know it will haunt me for a while now and I will have to read something of completely different genre, because I will try and compare any other sci-fi or fantasy book to it through some period of time. And it will win. Because the language was gorgeous and the world was hypnotic and Biologist/Ghost Bird wormed in deep into my brain like that Saul's sliver of light. I guess this whole story had this effect on me.

    Acceptance was as good as Annihilation was, while

    After Authority's "nothing happens and you're gonna like it" plot line, this was exhilarating. The excellent pacing from Annihilation is back! And the beautiful, disturbing prose is still here, as ever.

    There are no neat answers here. In fact, I have several questions. I call this "my own damn fault for reading so quickly" (forgive me, it was exciting). Well, I'm not sure how much is that and how much is intended/unintended ambiguity on the part of the author. Which is fitting, for Area X.

    Acceptance like the first two books in the Southern Reach trilogy is surreal and environmental; Area X invades and alters everything it touches. I was not however as wowed by the language, nor did I become as immersed in the narrative as Annihilation. Acceptance also lacks Authority's intrigue and creep factor. It reads more as a formulaic (though unusual) multi-point narrative. It is disjointed, much too long, and the ending feels like a cop out.

    My biggest problem with Acceptance is what Vander

    The only solution to the environment is neglect, which requires our collapse.
    While I do not advocate for environment at the expense of mankind, I do think we need to find a better balance. We are not good custodians of nature. Even at our most altruistic, we like Area X seek to distort ecosystems to our desires. In seeking to tame the wild in wilderness, we often destroy what is most valuable. And the result is rarely improvement. More often than not we only increase risk--from fire, flood, disease, etc--to the way of life we are seek to enhance. ...more
