The Girl With All the Gifts, in style similar to The Walking Dead, brings a much needed literary revamp to apocalyptic fiction, providing exciting but intelligent speculation of the possible horrors that might lurk in our future.
It’s not her parents that take Melanie to school in the morning but armed guards. Afraid, they keep their guns pointed at her as they strap her into a wheelchair. She tries to joke but they don’t laugh. She thinks they don’t like her. Carey’s writing is sure to keep you gripped from start to finish as it follows Melanie, a very special girl in possession of a fantastic but also incredibly dangerous set of abilities.
M.R. Carey, after success as a Hollywood screenwriter and writer for DC and Marvel, returns with The Girl With All the Gifts, a thrilling yet emotionally charged novel that is set to be one of the most talked about books of 2014.
