A Perfect Start to the Southern Reach Trilogy

I loved everything about this book. I personally really related to the protagonist and felt as though I really understood her. The plot is interesting and harrowing and I stayed up late to read this many a night because I just couldn’t put it down. The best thing is if you don’t feel like reading the whole trilogy then this works very well as a stand alone.

Fantastic but foreboding

Creepy as all heck, and one of the best-written horror stories that I've read, even though it's technically science fiction.

Smart, Creepy, and will stay with you.

Brilliant book! It is beautiful and descriptive. It is haunting. And will surely haunt you. I cannot wait to buy the other two novels to learn more about this world.

Simple yet haunting

Never have I read a book that could be so steadily paced with rich vocabulary and a plot that cannot be predicted. The action is not typical; it's more suspenseful in being unsure as the reader of what will happen next. Just as unsure as those in the current expedition. I would recommend this book.
