The girl with all the gifts - M.R. Carey

every morning Melanie leaves her cell and goes to a classroom
why she's in the cell and what is going on with her world
is something you don't know at first
but of course you suspect that something bad has to be going on
this book is definitely not my usual type of book
so I wasn't sure how well it would work for me
unfortunately I have to say that 
even though the story was special and at times crazy
I wasn't fascinated by it
and couldn't imagine it as a possible reality
I also struggled a bit with the writing style
and never managed to get into a good reading flow
I'm sure that for many other readers the story will deliver
a fascinating and special reading experience
but it wasn't my kind of book. 


  1. I read this one after I saw the movie trailer. I liked it but I was not a fan of the end really.

    1. The end was definitely strange, but then my whole reading experience was that way. :)

      Have a great day!

  2. I've heard a lot of mixed things about this book - I think it's one of those reads where people either love it or hate it. Sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy it more!

    1. Yes, that's what I also think. But it's ok that the story didn't work for me, it was still worth a try.

      Happy Reading!
