‘The Girl With All The Gifts’ by M. R. Carey

‘New Take On Genre’
Score: 4/5

M. R. Carey

If I'd known what this book was about before I read it I probably wouldn't have started it, even though it came with SWMBO's recommendation.

But start it I did, and I found it captivating. I did like the way things were gradually revealed, the way the reader had to figure out rather than having details endlessly explained. The way things are gradually shown to the reader make me wonder how this could be done in a movie (I've no idea if there are plans for a movie of this book or not).

I think it could be tricky to do as a movie. But as a book it's stunning.
