    The Strange Bird is a story that takes place in the Borne universe during the same timeline as the original novel, but from the perspective of a different character called the Strange Bird Part human and part bird, VanderMeer s world gets a different perspective as the Strange Bird escapes her laboratory prison and learns about the world outside its walls.I don t want to give too much away about this story because it would lessen its impact, but I was definitely crying by the end I will say th The Strange Bird is a story that takes place in the Borne universe during the same timeline as the original novel, but from the perspective of a different character called the Strange Bird Part human and part bird, VanderMeer s world gets a different perspective as the Strange Bird escapes her laboratory prison and learns about the world outside its walls.I don t want to give too much away about this story because it would lessen its impact, but I was definitely crying by the end I will say that the Strange Bird encounters all of the characters from the original novel, and it s interesting to see that world from the perspective of a new character I was so invested in her explorations of the cruel new world outside The universe of Borne is not a kind one, and I was seriously on the edge of my seat for the majority of the story.This story is heartbreakingly beautiful If you enjoyed Borne and would like to revisit the world of Mord, Rachel, Wick, and the Magician I highly recommend it It s a lustrous story from start to finish

    I m not sure that I can adequately put into words how I feel about this story or the Borne world as a whole The word enveloped came to mind when I was adding a progress update here The life and the consciousness of The Strange Bird enveloped me I was able to see directly into the strange soul of this life and the world abound I understand it, but can not explain it Start with Borne Follow thru with this one Five stars Not sure why.

    What did she hope for To find a purpose, and for kindness, which had not yet been shown to her Where did she wish to come to rest A place she could call home, a place that was safe A place where there might be others of her kind.The Strange Bird has lived in a lab all her life, enduring experiments that may have invaded her manufactured body, but not her spirit Her resilience was due in part to a special bit of DNA in her unique make up and from something extra and very purposeful added to What did she hope for To find a purpose, and for kindness, which had not yet been shown to her Where did she wish to come to rest A place she could call home, a place that was safe A place where there might be others of her kind.The Strange Bird has lived in a lab all her life, enduring experiments that may have invaded her manufactured body, but not her spirit Her resilience was due in part to a special bit of DNA in her unique make up and from something extra and very purposeful added to her by her creator She lives in a post apocalyptic world in which technology and its misuse was humankind s downfall, and when people tried to correct the problem by backpedaling, they only made things worse So when The Strange Bird is finally freed from the lab under tragic circumstances, she finds herself thrown out of the frying pan and into the fire in a world seemingly without rules or reason She has never even glimpsed the sun before now and is certain it will burn her as it rises on her first day of freedom But she soon discovers it is totally harmless, unlike most of the surviving humans and creatures she encounters as she searches for that elusive place called home This story is a novella and a companion piece to last year s excellent book Borne It takes place in the same world and covers the same time period, but with that world seen through very different, avian eyes You could read this as a stand alone since the author seamlessly integrated his previous story and much world building into it to bring any new reader up to speed But I d recommend reading Borne first to getout of this sad book That was the overwhelming feeling I came away with after reading this story of endurance and perseverance, even though it had moments of grace I m not sure if this additional story was necessary, and it was often gruesome But the descriptive writing detailing that ugly world was often beautiful and so was the spirit of The Strange Bird

    Cannot be read without having read Borne Can be read without reading Dead Astronauts There is usually a moment when I think, Aha, only three stars this time, VanderMeer Only to be proven wrong by an end that just brings it home Fab She sang for joy Not because she had not suffered or been reduced But because she was finally free and the world could not be saved, but nor would it be destroyed.

    The Strange Bird, is a laboratory made creature comprised of avian, human, and other generically enhanced bio form As a concept, the character is flawless inventive, emotionally complex, and loaded with geeked out gadgetry As the centerpiece to a plot driven by poetic like prose and nonsensical threads, it s a let down.Set in the same world as the post apocalyptic Borne, the novella would struggle to resonate with readers not familiar with its predecessor, even though the events span a timeli The Strange Bird, is a laboratory made creature comprised of avian, human, and other generically enhanced bio form As a concept, the character is flawless inventive, emotionally complex, and loaded with geeked out gadgetry As the centerpiece to a plot driven by poetic like prose and nonsensical threads, it s a let down.Set in the same world as the post apocalyptic Borne, the novella would struggle to resonate with readers not familiar with its predecessor, even though the events span a timeline consisting of pre present and post Borne, the novella reads better with having read Borne as a prerequisite.Whilst I enjoyed a number aspects to The Strange Bird, I never really felt connected to the story and found myself wanting it to end so I could go on to the next read The seamless linkage with Borne in the later stages was a highlight as was the emotional roller coaster of reading the Strange Bird s trials throughout the somewhat clouded plot.My rating 2 5 stars Pick this up if you re a die hard Borne fan there s something here to like If not, give it a miss

    This was okay It was an interesting new perspective in the world of Borne It is very short and can be read in about 2 hours The Strange Bird is a piece of biotech, escaped from the lab of the Company I would not recommend reading it prior to reading Borne as it would not make much sense.I did enjoy seeing some of the old characters again, although there was no Borne who was my favorite character from the original book.I did guess very early on what the Strange Bird s purpose was, but I didn This was okay It was an interesting new perspective in the world of Borne It is very short and can be read in about 2 hours The Strange Bird is a piece of biotech, escaped from the lab of the Company I would not recommend reading it prior to reading Borne as it would not make much sense.I did enjoy seeing some of the old characters again, although there was no Borne who was my favorite character from the original book.I did guess very early on what the Strange Bird s purpose was, but I didn t guess how we would arrive at that conclusion.Content warnings view spoiler Animal torture Moderately graphic hide spoiler

    I think I understand this book and the story in it I m not sure though This definitely is not the kind of book you can just pause the audiobook for and pick up right away Things move and shift and it s not the easiest to keep up with.
