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

Amy The Girl with all the GiftsA librarian recommended this as the one book loved by every member of his fantasy/sci-fi book club. I am reasonably comfortable with sci-fi, indeed some of my favourite books happen to fit in that genre, but I was surprised to realise (about a third of the way through, a bit slow on the uptake) that this is a zombie book. I’m glad I didn’t know that , as I may have been put off and I really enjoyed this book. It is clever and suspenseful, with compelling, endearing characters and a satisfying and hopeful ending.
