I love Jeff VanderMeer's mind - his imagination is extraordinary. He writes beautifully, and empathically, and although Borne is set in a bleak and frightening a post apocalyptic landscape it ends on a note of profound optimism.
This lyrical, hopeful book asks: What is consciousness? What is a person? What is it to be human and non human? VanderMeer explores profound issues of identity in a novel which is superbly structured, with not a word out of place, with characters that matter to the reader, and with a message of redemption.
All this, and it's read perfectly, gorgeously, by Bahni Turpin.
Personally I couldn't ask for more.

i was so connected to the characters that i didn't want to say goodbye at the end. i had happy sad tears. i didn't want it to end but i was also very content which is hard to do... very clever and meaningful book... thank you Jeff VanderMeer x
Bourne starts great but towards the end it just seemed rushed and uninteresting. I more then likely won't bother with the next two installments.
I really enjoyed Borne. If you like weird and wonderful Sci Fi then this is for you.
