During the corona lockdown there are two types of readers. Those who want to indulge in end of the world stories (possibly caused by some sort of pathogen) and those who want to stay away from them as far as possible.
Me, I don’t mind reading them even now. Still, it was mainly because I was looking for a reading challenge for something ‘horror’ that I finally picked up The Girl With All The Gifts. This was another one of those reads I had been planning to read for ages, since I have quite a lot of them.
This was a very interesting read and especially in the beginning not-your-average-zombie narrative. The main character is one of the hungries/zombies/whatever you’d like to call them, and this causes many questions on what makes us human or monsters. The second half is more standard I’d guess, but there were enough interesting twists that it didn’t bother me.
