Wow -- what a strange and wonderful book. It convincingly and darkly portrays a human world ruled by hostile aliens. Except these aliens are plant-like creatures and the world is definitely not earth. Although the plot is essentially a murder mystery/procedural, this book is incredibly imaginative and carries you into a world that is at once strangely familiar and wildly foreign. It takes a special author to pull this off and VanderMeer succeeds in spades.
