The USA Today bestseller
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.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 14, 2014 – Comics writer Carey (Lucifer) delivers an entertaining take on several well-worn zombie tropes. Years after the requisite zombie apocalypse (this time caused by a mutant strain of an ant-killing fungus, probably the book's most original touch), scientists in a remote outpost in England are working on a cure by experimenting on a group of zombified children who retain some of their original emotions and cognitive functions. Although Carey piles on the clich s (beyond the apocalypse and the recently trendy intelligent zombies, there are rogue survivalists straight out of The Walking Dead, scientists willing to cross ethical lines, and the ever-silly notion that people would use any term other than "zombies" to refer to the undead), he builds well-constructed characters particularly Melanie, one of the zombified children, who comes across as cognitively and emotionally different from the other characters, without feeling like an offensive parody of a person with Asperger's. The requisite action sequences are also well constructed, and the book will appeal to fans of zombie fiction.

Customer Reviews

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!


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

nicely crafted, fascinating, and too tedious

I thought it was great until they got close to London. It started going downhill with minutiae and Tolkin like detalil that would be fine if I had been… Great work and sophisticated… just pandeed to the pulp too much.
