The Girl with All the Gifts by M. R. Carey
Genre: Not totally sure… Would appeal to YA, New Adult, Adult, Thriller, Action/Adventure, Sci-fi, Apocalypse
Published: June 6th 2014 by Hachette Audio
I’m still reeling from this book. It’s addicting and fast-paced from the very first page, and ends with a surprising weight and finality. It’s the kind of wild book that ends in an unexpected way and you aren’t quite sure if the good guys won, or the bad guys won, mostly because you aren’t sure which is which anymore, or even who you were rooting for. The writing is subtly distant and formal, and yet personal at the same time. The humans are real. So are the Hungrys. The deaths hurt, the blossoming love fills the heart.
There’s so much I could say, but I really think the book says it the best. so:
1. Read it, even if it’s not your usual genre
2. I would 100% recommend it to anyone over the age of 14 (there is some graphic deaths and language)
3. I would totally read it again, and will read anything else by M. R. Carey.
