Publisher Description

In the ruins of civilization, a young girl's kindness and capacity for love will either save humanity -- or wipe it out in this USA Today bestselling thriller Joss Whedon calls "heartfelt, remorseless, and painfully human."
Melanie is a very special girl. Dr Caldwell calls her "our little genius."
Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant keeps his gun pointed at her while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don't like her. She jokes that she won't bite, but they don't laugh.
The Girl With All the Gifts is a genre-defying, emotionally charged thriller that will shatter your expectations of the classic zombie novel.

One of the best of its genre

After having first seen the movie I decided to try the book. The movie closely follows the story line of the book so if you enjoyed the film then you will more than likely enjoy reading this apocalyptic tale of a killer zombie virus. I have read many of the written works in this genre and watched just about every movie pertaining to zombies and I must say that I am quite impressed. Read a sample and see if you can put it down. Good luck.

Really enjoyed the book. The ending felt a bit rushed, but otherwise, excellent.

An excellent read

While enjoying a group's struggles of survival in a world post-infection on a global scale of mass devastation, you'll find yourself rooting for victory in an unexpected person and walking away from the ending not unequivocal of whether or not it was the right thing to do. Highly recommend this book!
