Review: The Girl with All the Gifts

The Girl with All the Gifts
The Girl with All the Gifts by M.R. Carey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This started out interesting and lost steam. The plot was fine, but my interest lagged after the first 1/3. I think the concept initially was charming (zombie MC doesn’t realize she’s part zombie–thinks she’s a normal girl).

However, after that, there was never enough character development and growth to keep me interested in all the running around that occurred in the plot. The themes became repetitive for me. I don’t dislike it, by any means, but I just lost the initial level of excitement I had when I started the book.

The funny thing is that the plot might be a bit slow in the start, and it’s right at the point where things kick up a notch that I started returning to the book with more and more reluctance. Therefore, it receives a very conflicted 3.5 stars (rounded up to 4, for consistency). It’s worth a look, just for the interesting perspective, but I don’t absolutely love it.
