NOT EVERY GIFT IS A BLESSING Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant Parks keeps his gun pointing at her while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don't like her. She jokes that she won't bite. But they don't laugh. Melanie is a very special girl. Emotionally charged and gripping from beginning to end, THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS is the most powerful and affecting thriller you will read this year.

    There's not much we can tell you about this without spoiling it, so all we'll say is it's a genre blending post-apocalyptic dystopian thriller that many will love, featuring a wonderful young protaganist Melanie who is sure to steal your heart. (And yes, there may well be zombies.)

    Really loved the ending, too.

    A terrible, wonderful, heart-breaking story about hope, humanity, and a young girl who tries to save the world at it's end…

  • Zombie novel with bite?

    by on

    Apologies for the pun - couldn't help it.

    The best speculative fiction uses out of the ordinary concepts to explore what it means to be human. The Girl With All The Gifts does just that.

    The human race looks set to lose its fight for survival. Whether it can rise again, and whether it deserves to, is an interesting story.
