I love a great world with relatable characters who seem realistic, even if they are fantastical.

The Girl with All the Gifts

The Girl with All the Gifts - M.R. Carey 4,25 stars

I went into the story with mixed expectations. I'm not usually one for zombies, but I did like the spin this book took on the topic. I listened to the story in audiobook format, and I really enjoyed the narration by Finty Williams.

I found the characters believable and the plot interesting and, at least to me, original. Throughout the book I kept thinking about how the story would end, and how I'd like it to end. I didn't expect the ending that the story had, but I was very pleasantly surprised. I was worried the resolution of the story would have been either catastrophic (in so much as it could, in the context of a zombie apocalypse) or tropy and clishéd. To me, it felt like neither. The conclusion felt very right, and left me satisfied with the story.
