    Area X has been cut off from the rest of the continent for decades. Nature has reclaimed the last vestiges of human civilisation. This is the twelfth expedition. Their group is made up of four women: An anthropologist; a surveyor; a psychologist, the de facto leader; and our narrator, a biologist. Their mission is to map the terrain and collect specimens; to record all their observations, scientific and otherwise, of their surroundings and of one another; and, above all, to avoid being contaminated by Area X itself.

    lots of metaphor. pretty dry to follow.

    thoroughly metaphorical. not really my thing but i will read the next book to continue the story. it is intriguing and i like the Lovecraftian feel to..Show More »
