”Not Every Gift Is A Blessing“

The zombie apocalypse has taken place, but there are signs of perhaps some hope. At an isolated British military base, the race is on to find a cure. There are zombie children who have retained some of their intelligence. They may even hold the chance for finding a cure. The children are taught in classes by several teachers while they are experimented on. One teacher grows close to a young girl named Melanie who has taken to her as her favorite teacher. When Melanie is chosen to be the next subject, the teacher tries to rescue her, but a larger disaster intervenes as the base falls to zombies. Melanie, the lead scientist, her favorite teacher, and handful of soldiers survive. They will attempt to reach the main base, but the path is lettered with zombies, roving gangs of crazed human raiders, and other dangers. All the time tensions simmer and erupt within the group. Will that make it? Is there a future for any of them?

A Magnificent Gift To All Zombie Fans

M.R. Carey, aka Mike Carey, writes an excellent novel that demonstrates he is a master novelist as well as a great comic book writer. The Girl With All The Gifts is one of the best zombie movies I've read. It's very impressive on every level. It captures and exposes some very tough moral issues in here. The characterization of Melanie is fantastic. Each character is believable and understandable. The novel tells a very powerful story. The ending was excellent and a genuine surprise. Each character grows and changes in the novel. The book has a lot of originality. And the movie inspired by it is also equally impressive. I give the novel of The Girl With All The Gifts a rating of 10 out of 10.
