The first eight hours of the book are spent on establishing setting. I didn't find the character of Control to be particularly exciting as an individual, like I did find the Biologist in "Annihilation," Control's commentary on the other characters pulled the plot along and ended up making the book impossible to stop listening to. The final two hours of the narration exploded in creepy action, and I was so grateful for having such a well-developed foundation from which to leap into the insanity of the climax. Bronson Pinchot's employment of different voices for each character, and dramatic and pensive pauses in Control's monologue, add to the engaging nature of the text. After finishing Authority, I felt on edge for two days from the powerful atmosphere created by Pinchot and VanderMeer. I am looking forward to reading Acceptance!
