Pequena biografia
Mike Carey (born 1959), also known by his pen name M. R. Carey, is a British writer of comic books, novels, and films, known for the novel The Girl with All the Gifts, as well as its 2016 film adaptation.

Carey was born in Liverpool, England, in 1959 – describing his young self as "one of those ominously quiet kids... who lived so much inside my own head I only had vestigial limbs". As a child, he maintained an interest in comics, writing and drawing primitive stories to entertain his younger brother. He studied English at St Peter's College, Oxford, before becoming a teacher. He continued to teach for 15 years before moving on to writing comics.



Keep yourself in the dark on the details, and enjoy. I listened to the audiobook version, and the reader did a good job giving the characters their distinct voices.

I like this book a lot. The plot pulled me in and kept me engaged throughout, and the characters were all interesting. I really like how the author took traditional zombie lore and tweaked it to make something completely new.

I read/listened to this book while I was on vacation so it took me forever to finish. The audiobook is very good.

The Boy on the Bridge is set in the same world as The Girl with All the Gifts.

This doesn't have the heart that the first book had. The writing and narration are great, but the story and characters are lacking.

A solid entertainer written in a very good style. Don't expect astounding plot originality: the expert genre reader will probably anticipate most of the plot twists and even the ending. The sweetness is in the style, and in the focus on characters. This is particularly true of the first part. It's in the first chapters that I fell in love with the novel and the people who live (no pun intended) in its pages. This coup de foudre made me forgive the imperfections in the rest of the book, when characters slip from three full dimensions to interesting but flat posters of themselves with clichéed "development" or, in one case, to hardwired-villain, single-minded, one-dimensional caricature. Actually, I have to admit that it was this character who delivered one of the few surprises during its final appearance: I did not expect a certain dialogue to happen.
By the way, I appreciated the way the dilemmas posed by the starting situation were developed, without manicheism, giving to each character, even the more dislikeable, time and space to display their reasons and the human roots of their own points of view.
All in all an agreeable experience, to which the mastery of the narrating voice in my audiobook version contributed more than I had realised at first. She manages to bring all characters to life without falling into excess. You can always identify who's talking without clues, since their first line in the scene. Standing ovation.
