The Girl with All the Gifts
Melanie is a very special girl. Dr. Caldwell calls her "our little genius."

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 loves school. She loves learning about spelling and sums and the world outside the classroom and the children's cells. She tells her favorite teacher all the things she'll do when she grows up. Melanie doesn't know why this makes Miss Justineau look sad.

The Girl with All the Gifts is a sensational thriller, perfect for fans of Stephen King, Justin Cronin, and Neil Gaiman.

    The last book I read (which was very good) took me 16 weeks to get through.This one arrived yesterday morning. My wife got her hands on it first and finished it by the evening. I took over and have finished it 8pm on the next day (today). It's not a short book, 460 pages of reasonably ...

    “And then like Pandora, opening the great big box of the world and not being afraid, not even caring whether what’s inside is good or bad. Because it’s both. Everything is always both. But you have to open it to find that out.” I have to say that I'm not much of a ...

    As a huge horror fan, I have a confession to make. I've never been a massive fan of the zombie genre as a whole. I absolutely love The Walking Dead but my love for it actually has very little to do with the zombies. I love it for the characters and the humans in it. Their stories are w...

    Great world building and a unique premise, but it was a bit listless in the middle. The audiobook narration is great, and overall I enjoyed the ending. I can't say much about the story because this is definitely one which you'll want to go into with no prior knowledge; it's more fun th...

    It's not usual that I enjoy zombie related books. I haven't read much, but I've seen a lot of movies and several tv series about it. When I first bought this book months ago, the only thing I knew about it was that it's about zombies. I was a bit reluctant to buy it, and also read it a...
