Well, friends, today I found out that one of my favorite books published in the last few years is being made into a movie, as we speak, by Alex Garland (who made 28 Days Later and Ex Machina). The book is Annihilation by Jeff Vandermeer, and it is strange and knotty and dark. The narrator and main character, called merely the "the biologist," ranks among the fictional characters I feel the most affection for (in a taciturn, standoffish, alone-in-the-woods, go-away kind of way). Natalie Portman will portray her in the movie. I had frankly imagined her as more of a Tilda Swinton type, but I'm not about to complain about one of my favorite actresses portraying one of my favorite characters. If you like Weird, check this book out.

"A religious or superstitious person, someone who believed in angels or demons, might see it differently. Almost anyone else might see it differently. But I am not those people. I am just the biologist; I don't require any of this to have a deeper meaning."
