The Girl with All the Gifts

Yeah, yeah. Maybe I’m a little behind the times, but I’ve just read ‘The Girl with all the Gifts’ by M.R. Carey after listening to this episode of the Best Seller Experiment.

You should definitely read this if you would like to know what it might be like to be a zombie (or hungry as they are called in the book).

The humanity that comes through in the book is what makes it for me. Mike, his wife, Linda, and his daughter, Louise, each take the voice of a different character and the book is told through the three viewpoints.

I have just one word to say about this: awesome.

I will definitely be getting the follow up which is ‘The Boy on the Bridge’.
