"'Am I a person?' Borne asks Rachel, in extremis. 'Yes, you are a person,' Rachel tells him. 'But like a person, you can be a weapon, too.' In a ruined, nameless city of the future, Rachel makes her living as a scavenger. She finds a creature she names Borne entangled in the fur of Mord, a gigantic despotic bear that once prowled the corridors of a biotech firm, the Company, until he was experimented on, grew large, learned to fly, and broke free. Made insane by the company's torture of him, Mord terrorizes the city even as he provides sustenance for scavengers. At first, Borne looks like nothing at all--just a green lump that might be a discard from the Company, which, although severely damaged, is rumored to still make creatures and send them to far-distant places that have not yet suffered collapse. Borne reminds Rachel of the island nation of her birth, now long lost to rising seas. She feels an attachment that she resents: attachments are traps, and in this world any weakness can kill you. Yet when she takes Borne to her subterranean sanctuary, Rachel convinces her lover, Wick--a special kind of dealer--not to render down Borne as raw genetic material for the drugs he sells. But nothing is quite the way it seems: not the past, not the present, not the future. If Wick is hiding secrets, so is Rachel--and Borne most of all. What Rachel finds hidden deep within the Company will change everything and everyone. There, lost and forgotten things have lingered and grown. What they have grown into is mighty indeed"-- "From the author of the Southern Reach Trilogy comes a story about two humans, and two creatures. The humans are Rachel and Wick - a scavenger and a drug dealer - both with too many secrets and fears, ready with traps to be set and sprung. The creatures are Mord and Borne - animal, perhaps plant, maybe company discard, biotech, cruel experiment, dinner, deity, or source of spare parts"--… (mere)

It felt...anticlimactic. Two traditional powers in a ruined city and a strange creature, Borne, all revolving around the main character, Rachel.


The Magician was played up to be a force for Mord, but she seemed bumbling and unimpressive. There were some foreboding moments, but nothing really materialized and her final scene didn't do much for me. The battle between Borne and Mord was also played up, but stayed mostly in the background.


I wish there had been more of a connection between the main plot and the subplots that developed. Ultimately, I felt like there were some easy wins and a lot of loose ends. ( )

Borne is post-apocalyptic fiction that takes place on an ecologically devastated Earth where survivors scavenge among the ruins of a demolished city competing with one another to salvage useful pieces of biotech, water, and any bit of refuse that might extend their lives. In between stealthy hunts for resources, the remnants of humanity hide from experiments turned deadly predator and humans intent on terrorizing others. The fast-paced action belies the underlying transhumanist theme, leaving a read that is exciting without being devoid of substance.

I came to this series backwards, reading the second book before the first, which didn't diminish my reading experience in the least. Despite sharing a common universe, each stands alone as a complete novel. I will say, however, that I prefer the more experimental new-weird companion story Dead Astronauts. ( )

In Sachen fremder, intelligenter Lebensform hat VanderMeer mit „Borne“ den Olymp erklommen. Der Autor imaginiert Szenen zwischen dem Monster und seiner menschlichen Ziehmutter, die so andersartig und schön sind, dass man das eigene Kopfkino gern dazu nimmt beim Lesen.
