ARC review: The Girl with All the Gifts by MR Carey

Book Synopsis(via Goodreads):


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.

***Many thanks to Net Galley and Hatchette book group for the advanced reader's copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.***

This insomniac's opinion:

Ok, bookish buddies-let's have a moment of honesty. Had I realized that this was a post-apocalyptic novel in the same vein as The Walking Dead, I would not have requested it. Just not my bag, baby.

However, it was utterly fascinating and engrossing. Also, just plan gross at times.

The story was interesting and full of twists and turns. So, surprisingly, it was overall a good read for me. I did have to suspend ALL disbelief during the read, though. Forgo common sense during reading, friends.

Rating: 3 stars
