REVIEW: The Girl With All the Gifts

“In an age of rust, she comes up stainless steel”


Very enjoyable novel. I loved the character development in this book, it was spot on! The more I read it, the more my opinions of all the characters were challenged. There’s something very satisfying about fictional characters who make you feel.

I wish that the ‘world’ it was set in could have been elaborated on further, but from what I’ve gathered, we get more of that in the next book – The Boy on the Bridge. I loved the ending too! I won’t spoil it, but I thought it was a really great finish.

Like I’ve said, it was the characters that really hooked me. The evolution of the characters and story was extremely well crafted and its fiction like this that I only hope to replicate when I actually find the time to start my book.

Slightly off topic; I tried to watch the film of this after I finished the book and it was so bad that I turned it off. Boring and completely lacking the depth of the story/characters. So I’d fully recommend the book, not so much the film!
