The Book Junkie

The Girl with All the Gifts

The Girl with All the Gifts - M.R. Carey I listened to this book in audio format and the narrator did a really nice job. The story wasn't what I was expecting but I did really like it. It is a sort of zombie apocalypse-type genre and it took a while to really figure out what was going on outside. Most of the beginning of book was set in a cell block. Once we left the cell block, however, things escalated quickly and the pace increased substantially.

For the most part, the story revolves around five main characters. Two I loved from the start, one developed my trust and respect as the story went on, one I never really attached myself to, and one I hated the whole way through the book and I kept hoping her demise would arrive quickly. It didn't...

There are some really disturbing parts to this book as well, both mentally and graphically but without them, the realistic aspect of the book would have been lost. What really got me however, was the way it ended. No spoilers here but I will say that I did a lot of thinking of how the future would play out once the final scene was finished.
