Books make all the Gifts

The Girl with All The Gifts by M R Carey

 

Zombies!

I think this book caused our first disagreement within the book club. I really liked it while Eva thought it was rather flavourless.

The story is set in a post-apocalypstic world (Britain specifically) and humans are close to extinction. I don’t read many zombie novels but I think this might be the only one written from the zombie’s point of view.

The zombie girl Melanie is really lovely if you don’t advertise yourself as meal on legs to her. She is smart too and saves the day and the world – for the zombies, not humans. Humans are kind of doomed in this book.

I loved the ending.
