The Girl With All the Gifts

By M. R. Carey

Narrated by Finty Williams
13 hours 4 minutes

Not every gift is a blessing.

Melanie is a very special girl. Dr Caldwell calls her "our little genius."

Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant keeps his gun pointing at her while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don't like her. She jokes that she won't bite, but they don't laugh.

The Girl With All the Gifts is a groundbreaking thriller, emotionally charged, and gripping from beginning to end.

If you only read one novel this year, make sure it's this one, it's amazing.

Martina Cole, author of Close
