    You’d think by now we would have reached ‘peak zombie,’ right? I mean, there’s only so much you can do with a genre. But Carey mines the territory for new gold and finds it. The Girl with All the Gifts opens in the strangest classroom ever. (And as a teacher, I’ve seen some pretty strange classrooms.) After the zombie apocalypse in England, some infected children have, for reasons unknown, been turned into zombies but have also retained their human intelligence. Melanie is the research [...]

    This is a book that is going to capture teen readers and keep them engaged until the very last page. Melanie is a fascinating character and one I will not soon forget. Carey was masterful in creating this young character (as well as the others) in such a way that readers could imagine an innocent, intelligent, curious child while at the same time, understand the consequences of underestimating her threat to humankind. Remarkable gift of story telling.Readers who have enjoyed Maberry's series,beg [...]

    I really enjoyed this book. It has a little bit of everything to offer, and kept me on edge, so I had to push through. This is the first book that I've read in awhile that did not waste much time on the love interest aspect. This book is definitely original, and I'm excited to watch the movie whenever it is released. Everyone should read this book. Writing style reminded me most times of Elizabeth Flock's in What Happened to my Sister. The Girl With All The Gifts is well written, unique, and rec [...]

    A book that is so phenomenal I can't stop saluting to the writer. This book captured me from the first page and had me gripped in its fist until the last page. I love how sentimental and heart wrenching the book start and keep going with outstanding information and flow that keep me dizzy with wonder. I love this book and recommend it to everyone who love to read.

    I didn't find this book entertaining or interesting. I didn't like any of the characters. The girl was mildly interesting but the journey that the characters embark on after leaving the military compound is dull without any suspense. The scientific discovery and story ending is definitive.

    A post apocalyptic thriller, The Girl with All the Gifts once more relates an end-of-mankind tale. In a world in the process of being destroyed by a kind of zombie making virus, an infected girl, Melanie, her beloved teacher, a crazy scientist and a couple of soldiers must survive in a mostly destroyed England.Although this book is captivating and has an unusual and oddly satisfying end, I am so absolutely tired of zombies, end of the world as we know it, and dystopian fiction, that I simply cou [...]

    This is a very good book. It is also a great book. I mean two different things. A good book is well-written - the sentences are proper, the characters are interesting, the plot makes sense and so on. In The Girl with All the Gifts, MR Carey does all that. But a great book tells you something about what it means to be human. And The Girl with All the Gifts does that, too.It is set in England, about 20 years after a plague has turned most humans into "hungries" - barely sentient animals who live o [...]

    Story flowed well, interesting characters. Definitely one I looked forward to listening to every day!

    An Interesting Premise For Zombyism.I'm not sure the "children" are zombies, but that is the way the plot of the first ten chapters are going. Also, the "children" are sentient, emotionally capable beings--though they appear to be one-in-a-million among the infected individuals who are collectively called "hungries." The hungries' description definitely fits the zombie template. There is great potential for examining the nature of what makes us human. I hope the full novel fulfills that promise. [...]

    El extended preview gratuito (que se puede conseguir en ) me da muchas ganas de que llegue la fecha en que se lanzará la versión completa de este libro. Melanie es un personaje fantástico y la forma en que el autor narra la historia (en tercera persona) es fantástica. Me pareció que Helen Justineau es una versión más elegante de Whoopi Goldberg. Tómense la libertad de disfrutar de las primeras 67 páginas de una historia en un escenario casi apocalíptico bastante interesante y del que s [...]

    Nope! Didn't reel me in! Lost interest completely

    Fast paced and interesting, this is a slightly different take on the zombie apocalypse. I felt the ending was bit too tidy, but otherwise a fun read.

    Can't wait to discuss this at book club many questions! I feel like any review I write would include too many spoilers.

    Miss Honey and Matilda, but in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. Gory, thrilling, lots of fun. One thing bothered me, though. Whenever people from the base meet a child hungry, they describe it by saying what age it was infected. They'd be able to do that only if they thought child hungries don't age. But we learn that they do! So if the base has had child hungries for four years, how did they not notice them growing?

    I listened to the audiobook version and was very skeptical at the beginning. This book was recommended to me and I had no idea what the story was about, so was surprised to find it was another book about zombies. However, after getting into the story, I was pleasantly surprised! And, by the end I had a hard time turning the book off! If you want something different, that offers suspense and emotion, I say give The Girl With All The Gifts a try!

    Noelle
    Dr. Ian Malcolm would love this book, because, after all, life finds a way. More cerebral than your average zombie book. Loved the ending. There's one plot point on which I remain confused, but I suspect someone on the Interwebz has figured it out for me.

    I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would - it was gripping and constantly moving. (view spoiler)[ BUT THE END!? It fell a little flat for me to be honest. (hide spoiler)]Full review TBA

    Loved every page of thisant characters, wonderful spooky story with a lasting taste of the end of the world that you can't get away from.

    This was a bit different than anything else I have read. I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Its not your typical zombie story it has a twist. Well a few twists.

    I don't recall being so totally absorbed in a book from start to finish in a long, long time. It never drags and once you get started it's impossible not to read "just one more chapter." The fact that most of the chapters in the book - and there are more than 70 of them - are extremely short helps make it hard to put this book down. I was anxious to finish because I know the author, M.R. Carey, was also writing a screenplay and I discovered the film is set to be released shortly in the USA. I'm [...]

    First of all, I am trying to get back into doing reviews. I will try to go back to some of my past reads and add them as well. This is my first one in some time.I may or may not have seen a bootleg copy of this film. I cannot confirm or deny that. If I have not, I am super excited about this movie coming to the States because the preview looks fantastic. With any good film that was modeled after a book, I generally have a desire to read it.The Girl With All the Gifts is something of a a zombie b [...]

    The Girl With All the Gifts by M.R. Carey is a fascinating read. The book is full of tense, thriller moments that make you sit at the edge of your seat! This book is about a young girl named Melanie. Melanie is a hungry. Hungries eat people for the main part, but Melanie is different than other hungries, and is why Melanie is Dr. Caldwell's "favorite." Every student in her class is a hungry, which is why the are wheeled in to their class from their cells by Sergent Parks, keeping them armed with [...]

    I am not really one who generally reads zombie apocalypse books. As far as this genre goes, I liked this book. The premise that humans may inevitably join the long list of species facing mass extinction feels apt.Further, the willingness to dissect, cage, manipulate, and in the end, sacrifice the lives of things we do not quite understand in the name of cold and calculated science felt equally salient. Carey's novel felt on many ways like an oracle warning us all that we cannot survive if we are [...]

    Wow, what a wild ride this book was; I almost missed a family lunch because I didn't want to stop reading it! The writing is pitch-perfect in terms of cliffhangers and character development. It was like watching a movie more than reading a book, and when I discovered that the author was actually writing a screenplay as well as a novel on the same subject at the same time, it all made sense. The ending was a teeny bit abrupt--I understand the direction the story was taking, but after such careful [...]

    Dystopian zombie thriller -- yikes! I thought I'd never read a zombie story, but somehow I kept hearing about this one and finally gave in.This is a well written, almost believable tale of a future fungal menace. Humans become infected with this awful growth in their brains and nervous systems and are driven to eat other humans. A few, a precious few humans have not been infected, including a team of scientists, teachers and guards who are working to find the cause and cure for this awful pandem [...]

    I absolutely loved this book. This is NOT my genre by any means. Never would have chosen this if I had known more about it. Not sure why I did, actually - I think it was on sale at Audible. The writer is smart - masterful. This is a person who knows how to use words, phrases, description to the best benefit. It is not dumbed down like so many books now. The characters are fleshed out and real. Each with flaws, but you find yourself rooting for them all anyway. The character of Melanie is so well [...]

    Even though Melanie is a hungry, she knows how to control herself because of her strong idea of protecting Ms.Justineau. Her strong personality allows her to know whats wrong and whats right and chooses the right decisions. I think the relationship between Sergeant Parks and Ms.Justineau, Ms.Justineau and Melanie is really sweet. The relationships inside the books has taught me that, these different kind of love can drive you to do things in order to protect the loved ones. The ending is bitter- [...]

    I read this book because I thought it was about real life mental healthhaha not sure where I got that! Normally I wouldn't even bother to read a sci-fi book but Once I started it I decided stick with it as it took me out of my comfort zone. While this wasn't my favorite, Melanie's relationship with Miss J intrigued me and kept me going.

    Sara
    A great book. The story slowly builds through several different characters points of view. I really liked the explination of how this plague came to be and how it evolved. I don't want to give anything away, so I'll just strongly encourage everyone to read it.
