The Girl With All the Gifts (The Girl With All the Gifts #1) Reviews
I have had this book for quite sometime and just now getting it finished! It is very nice to finally get to a book and love it so much. I did read reviews before I got the book so I already know it's a zombie book and you will too if you read mine or anyone else review.
But...wow.. there is fungus among us.. Yeah, I said that and not I'm not going to talk about it! :)
These poor kids are brought in during the week to their class all strapped down in chairs. I ...more
I've never read a zombie book before. Why I read this one was because a review said it was female-oriented and that got me interested. I was delighted that all the strong characters were women, and not women who were aping male characteristics or subject to the ultimate control of a male. It was interesting that the author is male, but not surprising. The best ever characterisation of a woman I have ever read is the monologue by a woman who has just lost her boyfriend and freaks in a way only gi ...more
شما تصور کنید من تو دوره امتحانام اینو خوندم و این در حالیه که برای امتحان فردا هیچی نخوندم. یه جورایی عذابوجدان دارم. ولی این کتاب یه چنان غلیانی انداخته به جونم که فک کنم بتونم تا صبح بیدار بمونم و نگران امتحانم نباشم.
دختری با تمام موهبتها، تو ژانری نبود که من بپسندم. ولی بخاطر لحن و فضاسازی و کنایه و تلمیحهای دلنشینش، خیلی تونستم باهاش ارتباط برقرار کنم. پایان خیلی عمیقی هم داشت، اگه امتحان نداشتم میتونستم بشینم بعدش گریه کنم. ولی حقیقتاً وقت این لوسبازیا رو ندارم. :همر:
+ پُز بدم یکم؟ :-" ب ...more
“And then like Pandora, opening the great big box of the world and not being afraid, not even caring whether what’s inside is good or bad. Because it’s both. Everything is always both. But you have to open it to find that out.”
I have to say that I'm not much of a traditional zombie fan - moaning, slow-walking dead people are neither interesting nor scary to me - but there is nothing traditional about this book.
Firstly, this is not an old school "how to get away from the zombies and stay alive" ...more
Buddy read with the moistest awesome... My drinking buddy Mitchell, Kelly Goldblum and The Book pusher Ed
I had this review all planned out in my head. Then I went to sleep and it's gone. Getting old sucks, kids.
This may be kinda spoilery so read at your own caution. It's hard to not say anything about the book. I went into it blind and that might be the best way to head into it. I didn't even realize it was a zombie book-and don't get me wrong I likes some zombies but I've kinda taken a break ...more
“You can’t save people from the world. There’s nowhere else to take them.”
4.5 out of 5 stars
This book. I might change my mind and give it 5 stars. I'm not sure. It's not an immediate favourite, but I loved it to pieces.
I don't like zombies. I don't like horror. But I do like my fair share of thrill, mystery and intrigue. And this was intriguing as hell.
Originally the plot threw me off. Until I saw the trailer. I just had to get hold of this book.
It's a very character driven novel, exploring feel ...more
