Nicole D. | 1495 comments Set in the same world as The Girl with All the Gifts this is definitely not a sequel. The characters are different. I can't tell if it's after "Girl" or happening at around the same time.

In the first book we learned a lot about this world, so this book wasn't as interesting. I liked the kids in "Girl" and they didn't really have the same focus in this book.

The narrator is fantastic, and I really liked the end, so that saved it a little bit. Otherwise, I was a little disappointed.

Nicole D. | 1495 comments I guess I got confused because they all ended up on Rosie.

Did they? I thought they had two different vehicles. I don’t remember
