APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Like his previous novel, The Girl with All the Gifts, M. R. Carey’s The Boy on the Bridge is set in a blasted future and revolves around a remarkable young person whose existence stands in contrast to humankind’s violent decline—and the grown-up determined to stand in harm’s way. If you like zombie movies as much as we do, you’ll enjoy this time bomb of a story, which shows off Carey’s geeky interest in science and sharp, witty insights into human behavior and drama.

A sidequel to rival the first.
The Boy On the Bridge - Perfect
What a great follow up (pre and post) to "The Girl with All the Gifts"! I always thought that "World War Z" was the ultimate intellectual deconstruction of the epidemic story, but these two books, especially this one, proved me wrong,
It's a masterpiece. Plain and simple, a masterpiece.
