"'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)

    Quicksand House af III Carlton Mellick (arcanacoelestia)
    arcanacoelestia: Vividly written, wildly imaginative and fascinating novel - set within a vast, labyrinthine, but eerily claustrophobic building in a surreal future. Classified as Bizarro Fiction but closer to the Science Fantasy genre, with protagonists (a teenage brother and sister) who are complex and deeply sympathetic. Like BORNE, QUICKSAND HOUSE is a post-apocalyptic vision that combines weird beauty, nightmarish horror, social insight, and emotional power. Highly recommended for those who enjoyed BORNE.… (mere)

This was fucking awesome. ( )

It seems fitting to finish this book on mother's day, one of the most beautiful paeans to motherhood
Mostly good, I kind of thought it should have ended after part 2 because the 3rd section was not as interesting to me, all in all very melodramatic, kind of like one of those horse girl movies but instead of a horse its a blob.

kind of felt like it was in the same universe as book of phoenix by nnedi okorafor ( )

Two days after finishing Borne, the latest read in my Vandermeer streak, and I am still not okay because I have all the feels for an inhuman murderous squid tentacle monster.

I'll try and break down what this book is about, with only minimal spoilers.

BORNE is a personal story of found families, lost children, broken homes, and couples trying to "make it work" against the odds.

BORNE is an epic story about monsters, humanity, and the incredible struggle of people who wish to be good but cannot stop being evil.

BORNE is a science fantasy story about a post-apocalyptic world overrun by biotech/wetware, all of it as beautiful and ingenious as it is insane and deadly.

BORNE is everything I look for in a speculative fiction novel, and if you are a fan of this genre, you cannot afford to miss this modern classic. ( )

I really tried hard to like this. I got about one-third of the way through and realized I was just forcing myself to read on because my best friend read it and gave it 4 stars. I tried, but it was not enjoyable to me. ( )

An interesting novel, but not really my cup of tea. There are so many ways I could describe this book: weird, imaginative, unsettling, dark. The world building is excellence and I can see why this author and this style of futuristic fiction has attracted readers. Still, this just wasn't the book for me and I struggled to finish it. ( )

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.
