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

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

since i really can’t say much about this book without being all spoilery, and it’s really new, i’m just gonna have to comment tangentially.

squee! squee! what a lot of fun.

you’re never in a million years gonna guess the ending. it’s ripper. and i love it that this book follows its genre but has none of the usual outcomes. it’s like planting the back 40 with wheat and coming up with rye. the kind of rye with the weird fungus on it that caused all the weird behaviour that ended in the Salem witch trials.

i listened to the audiobook. it was very well-read. you must give this one a read either in print or via ears, cause it’s just too much fun to pass up.
