The Girl With All the Gifts (The Girl With All the Gifts #2) Reviews
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:

Since I’m exactly the type of person who avoids horror at all costs, I told myself there was no chance I was ever going to give this book more than a glance.
But my curiosity got the best of me, like it always seems to do.

The Girl with All the Gifts opens in the strangest classroom ever. (And as a teacher, I’ve seen some pretty strange classrooms.) After the zombie apocalypse in England, some infected children have, for reasons unknown, been turned into zombies but have also retained their human intelligence. Melanie is the research lab’s sta ...more
Creepy, eerie, & unexpected! I enjoyed this one!
This book has what might be the greatest first act I've ever read. I can't describe it, because part of its wonderful tension relies on the reader's ignorance of the situation. It's absolutely brilliant though, and tells a story of a tragically fascinating girl and her relationship with her teacher and the world around her. It promises so much.
Then act two begins and almost all of that is thrown out the window for boilerplate thriller territory. It is all well written, tense, and exception ...more
