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 pointing 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 groundbreaking thriller, emotionally charged and gripping from beginning to end.

    I really liked this and recommend 'The Boy on the Bridge," which is the prequel to the first book. I like the creative twist of the zombification being caused by a fungus, which seems strangely believable...more story line with the Junkers would be interesting, although maybe there will be some of that in "The Boy on the Bridge, " which I just started. Also liked a story line that kept me guessing throughout....great book!

    Very unexpected, interesting ending

  • Diana Thomason

    Good book, surprise ending! Loved the narration. This was my first book in Audiobooks; hoping it's a good sign.

  • Danelle Alloway

    I really enjoyed this book, beginning to end. I was surprised to see that folks thought the middle was slow going. I thought it was well put together and the revealing of more story as it went along was well done. I don't usually go for the post-apocalyptic stuff but I thoroughly enjoyed this thought provoking listen.

  • Brittany Burns

    The beginning is wonderful! Such a good lead up. And the end was wonderful. However the middle was a little boring.

  • Margaret Edwards

    The book's beginning was awesome. I love these types of post-apocalyptic stories. The story lost some steam in the middle. The ending was interesting and helped to tie everything together. The narrator was AMAZING!

    Lovely unique book... I got this book out of desperation to have an audiobook out in a dead zone. Limited internet connection I had to pick something and quickly download it to my phone. I loved the narrator. She was able to make each character its own and the story was rich and interesting. Give it a shot you'll enjoy it a lot. I am an avid SciFi reader, and all around Nerd who would love to read more from this author.

  • Danielle Baugh

    This was a great book that kept me waiting for the next opportunity to listen! The narrator was fabulous and made it all the more enjoyable. Like all good books, I was sad when it ended!

    Didn't have any expectations going in as I was only told it was my kind of book, had no idea what it was about. I loved it. It's not often I'm surprised by a book and I thought I had this one all figured out. I was completely wrong. Great twist, great writing, and a great narrator.
