The Girl with All the Gifts; M.R. Carey

The Girl with All the GiftsThe Girl with All the Gifts by M.R. Carey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There's no way to really review this without spoiling it, so let me just say that the author does a good job of positing a society disrupted by a virus, and asking us to question what "human" means.

After so many years of reading dystopian books, it's getting old but this one is somewhat different. The societal collapse and government reaction were well within the realm of real. And even though the characters were stereotypes (hence the four, not five stars) with only one exception did they have some shades grey in their makeup.
