The Girl With All the Gifts by M.R. Carey
"5 stars as a zombie book, 4 stars as an any book.

Hands down best zombie book I've ever read. If Zombies are the new western, this book is the new Shane.

I wrote this as a futuristic novel, but the reader is, of course, welcome to interpret the novel in any way they please :)

Kevin has done a wonderful service for anyone wishing to create a video with musical accompaniment. I donated on his website, and will again when I create future videos using his musical talent.

Paul Thank you!
This is a book, that should I not win, I will probably have to purchase. Although I can't obviously know the story beforehand, I like the idea and the concept of a botanical holocaust (as a story... the real thing would surely horify me) and the steps mankind would take to survive... including canibalism.
The video mention that this started many centuries ago, am I to take it this takes place in a "parallel" time-line? Or do the many centuries ago reflect the perspective of a future person reflecting back on "this" earth?
Anyhow, win or lose, I'm sure you'l be hearing from me at some point down the line.

BTW, I absolutely loved the feeling received from Kevin Macleod's music while watching said video.

Tam Linsey Great to meet you, Paul. I'm glad you liked the video :) Best of luck!
