    And then like Pandora, opening the great big box of the world and not being afraid, not even caring whether what s inside is good or bad Because it s both Everything is always both But you have to open it to find that out I have to say that I m not much of a traditional zombie fan moaning, slow walking dead people are neither interesting nor scary to me but there is nothing traditional about this book.Firstly, this is not an old school how to get away from the zombies and stay alive kind of book It opens from the perspective of these zombies intelligent, emotional, child zombies and Melanie is one of them A young, intelligent girl who is seemingly full of life, curiosity and the ability to form emotional attachments.The way the story is told from a specific perspective is important, changing the way we view Melanie and the other children They are first presented as thoughtful, frightened kids in a situation that makes us instantly sympathetic We are not allowed to simply view them as necessary sacrifices in the hunt for a zombie cure.It is of an introspective, philosophical book about what it means to be human and how being human might not necessarily make you one of the good guys, than it is an action packed adventure full of chases and shoot outs though there is some of that too.At the heart of this story is Melanie s relationship with her beloved teacher Miss Justineau And, through the teacher s stories and inspir...

    You d think by now we would have reached peak zombie, right I mean, there s only so much you can do with a genre But Carey mines the territory for new gold and finds it The Girl with All the Gifts opens in the strangest classroom ever And as a teacher, I ve seen some pretty strange classrooms After the zombie apocalypse in England, some infected children have, for reasons unknown, been turned into zombies but have also retained their human intelligence Melanie is the research lab s star pupil Along with her classmates, who are all strapped in their chairs to keep them from, you know, eating the human teacher, they go through lessons and read stories, so the scientists can try to understand what makes these bright young zombies tick Melanie is not really aware of what she is, or why she is there This school is the only life she s ever known But she is aware that once in a while her classmates disappear into the lab and never come back She fears she may be called to leave sooner or later, and she doesn t want to part with her beloved teacher.Then one d...

    The last book I read which was very good took me 16 weeks to get through.This one arrived yesterday morning My wife got her hands on it first and finished it by the evening I took over and have finished it 8pm on the next day today It s not a short book, 460 pages of reasonably small font It is a very compelling book The opening is the strongest I ve read in an age.It s the first book I ve bought in a long time Publishers and authors send me free books in the hope I ll read them and say something nice, so I ve a stack of books waiting that I didn t pay for However, I only manage 10 or 12 books a year and once in a while it s nice to pick something myself.A friend, whose tastes I trust, has recommended this book forcefully and frequently for a couple of years so I caved and got it It s the sort of story that s best come to cold If someone spoils if for you it spoils it It s not that the whole thing rests on some massive twist I see dead people , just that it s so much nicer to experience it the way the author wanted you to, a slow reveal widening from claustrophobia to agoraphobia.It s a book set in modern times, written in the present tense, and moving quite frequently from the main character s point of view to those of several others around her The prose is of very high quality, powerful, direct descripti...

    This is the story of a girl, locked in a room, who is strapped into a chair every morning while a man holds a gun to her head She s wheeled into a classroom in which there are other kids strapped into chairs just like hers, where a woman teaches them lessons that they will probably never need to learn.This book is like a fantastic combination ofthe scrupulously researched medical thriller aspects of Mira Grant s Deadline the queer, feral curiosity of a child who s not what she seems, like Octavia Butler s Fledgling the wandering survival aspects of The Reapers are the Angels and its badass heroine Temple the dichtomy of high fun...

    now no one can yell at me ever again another tricky to review book i think it s safe to discuss the fact that this book is about zombies that cat is outta that bag but it s one of those new spins on the zombie tale, like Raising Stony Mayhall and Zone One and The Reapers are the Angels, where the focus is not run away from zombies aaaaaahhhh, but one which comes at the zombie story from a social philosophy angle as the survivors struggle with the responsibility of remaining human and redefining humanity in a world in which they are outnumbered by monsters, here known as hungries which makes it sound SO let me back up because there is PLENTY of action in this puppy we got guns and zombie kids and mad scientists and marauding gangs and attacks and close calls and a wallop of a reversal in the ending that kicks the predecessors of zombie lit s ass...

    Ugh This book has what might be the greatest first act I ve ever read I can t describe it, because part of its wonderful tension relies on the reader s ignorance of the situation It s absolutely brilliant though, and tells a story of a tragically fascinating girl and her relationship with her teacher and the world around her It promises so much Then act two begins and almost all of that is thrown out the window for boilerplate thriller territory It is all well written, tense, and exceptionally creepy at times I did manage to finish the book, which I suppose is saying something in favor of its quality, but I m not sure I can recommend it All manner of fascinating questions and story threads are introduced or implied and then abandoned in favor of action sce...

    Post apocalyptic is definitely my jam but after reading so many, some of them start blending into each other.This one reminded me A LOT like way too much of The Passage Both good but not amazing Now I need to check the movie

    The most sure footed novel I ve read all year A dystopian thriller with a real, beating heart Recommend Recommend Recommend.

    I was duped.I thought The Girl With All the Gifts was about a girl who had all the gifts and was somehow a modern Lilith say, like, Lilith in Supernatural as the little girl and would bring about the apocalypse if she didn t learn to control her gifts.I was duped Hard.And I m glad I was I m glad the premise on the back of the book gave absolutely nothing away, only that we were going to meet a young girl by the name of Melanie, a genius and a very special girl I m glad that every detail about the book kept what s inside hidden away for the reader to discover alone Pandora s box, if you will And I don t really care that I was duped Because The Girl With All the Gifts was a breakout so far for 2014, and I surely will be recommending M R Carey s sensational and engrossingly written novel for anyone that dares to question it s worth in the speculative scene.Opening Pandora s box and unleashing what s inside is the major theme of M R Carey s The Girl With All the Gifts, something we should do throughout our lives, unafraid of change or disturba...
