The Girl with all the Gifts

Arrrrg! So, let me start with… this book was a frustrating read for me. Not because it wasn’t good, it was very good, but because I’d written a strikingly similar story years ago and never fully finished/did anything with it. Shakes fist at the universe Damn you, Universe. Damn you! Of course, that’s not to say my story would have done anywhere near as well as this one did, but it’s just annoying to think about the ‘what ifs’ isn’t it?

Anyway, back on track here… The Girl with all the Gifts by M.R. Carey is a pretty fantastic novel. The movie was pretty good, too. It’s a new spin on the age-old zombie apocalypse stories. It’s based around one girl, in particular, the one with all the gifts, and the ending… is quite the twist. In fact, I loved the ending.

What are your thoughts on this novel? Have you read a story before that left you shaking your fist at the universe? Haha. Looking forward to hearing from you all.

Good morning, Anisa

I can’t believe there’s a new slant on the zombie apocalypse especially after a movie that had a ‘Pride and Prejudice’ theme that focused on zombies.

Take care and stay safe,
