Book Review: The Girl With All the Gifts (The Girl With All the Gifts #1) by M.R. Carey
So, I’m not usually one for zombie books, series or movies. They’re all a bit samey and predictable, unless they totally subvert the genre like the movie Zombieland, which is totally hilarious. But this novel is described as a thriller and the blurb, about a little girl called Melanie who everyone seems terrified of, intrigued me enough to pick it up.
And WOW I’m so pleased I did. This is a zombie book that is intelligent, exciting and gripping. With a BRILLIANT ending.
Author Richard Writhen writes a fusion of horror and fantasy. Specifically, weird fiction, cosmic horror and gothic fiction presented as fantasy, and all with a dark atmosphere and grimdark feel. Sounds utterly delicious doesn’t it!
Well, Richard has a new release out called The Angel of the Grave and he’s agreed to not only answer some of my questions but also provide me with an excerpt of his latest novel for you all to feast your voracious reading eyes upon!
Book Review: The Unusual Possession of Alastair Stubb by David John Griffin (published by Urbane)
It’s *very* rare that I read horror, and this will likely be the only review on this blog for a long while! However, I won a copy of this book in a Twitter competition held by the author and I wanted to give it a read. Before I start on the story, I just want to take a moment to appreciate the stunning cover and inside design! The bugs are shiny on the cover and are dotted about inside too. The font looks gothic and adds to the overall feel of the book.
