The Girl with All the Gifts by M.R.Carey

”The Girl with all the gifts” by M.R Carey is a dystopian thriller. It is the sort of book I normally prefer to read. I was thrilled to read the first half with but second half fell from the original story line and I was bit disappointed.

Melanie is ten and she is in a base. Her entire world consisting of her cell, a corridor, a shower room and a classroom. Five days a week, Melanie is strapped into a wheelchair, fastened securely and wheeled into the classroom where she, and her fellow classmates are taught. Melanie is a bright and quick learner, who worships her teacher Miss Helen. Although Melanie is content enough with the world that she knows, she is concerned when two children from her class suddenly disappear, taken by the aggressive Sergeant Parks to Dr Caroline Caldwell’s lab, never to return.

First part was great, but second part was full of zombies and stuff like that. It felt like reading 2 different books. Interesting twist at the end and it ended abruptly as if to indicate the hope for the better world. There is 2nd installment in this ”the girl with all the gifts” series and it is called as ”The boy on the bridge”-Published on May 2nd 2017.

My rating: 2 out of 5. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate this book.I can’t describe it, because part of its wonderful but then part two begins and almost all of that is thrown out the window.
