5.0 su 5 stelle Brilliant Prequel to TGWATG 10 maggio 2017

Although this book can be read as a stand alone, I don't know why anyone wouldn't read the fantastic The Girl With All The Gifts First. This book, a prequel set in the same post apocalyptic location as the previous book but about 20 years earlier. Here we follow the journey of a team of twelve military personnel and scientists on the Rosiland Franklin (tank/lab/RV). Takes place about a decade after the plague has infected the world turning people into zombies. Don't let the word zombie scare you away! The story is about the human race trying to survive and what they will do for and against each other to succeed. Although it is a dark story, humanity also shines through. I've read more than a few and I think The Boy On The Bridge is my favorite post apocalyptic book I have read. The Epilogue was epic!

There are interesting stories, and there are well told stories. The boy on the bridge is an interesting story that is so well written I want to read anything Carey writes ever again. Highly recommend this book if you're even vaguely interested in the post-apocalyptic/dystopian genre.
4.0 su 5 stelle If you loved "The Girl With All The Gifts", you'll love this one too. 24 giugno 2017

If you've read "The Girl With All The Gifts" by the same author, you know what you're in for. A well told and very unique zombie novel. There is no overlap of characters in this book, and I believe "The Boy On the Bridge" was set earlier in time than the previous book.

In any event, I loved this book just as much. Only problem is that the storyline was a wee bit familiar/similar. But I loved it and finished it in two days. Good stuff.

The Girl With All The Gifts was such an incredible surprise—a zombie book with a sympathetic and compelling zombie? People were enthralled. The ending was fabulous because it made sense and even made me cry. Now, M. R. Carey has written its prequel, The Boy On The Bridge. Again he focuses on the relationship between an adult and a child in a world that crashed and burned when humankind became infected by the virus. But, Stephen is not a zombie, a hungry, he is quite possibly high functioning Asperger’s—though he is never given this diagnosis—with eidetic memory and difficulty relating to any other person but Dr. Rina Kahn.

Part of a group of scientists and army personnel slowly traveling across Britain in a tanked-out RV, Rina and Stephen are collecting data on the hungries with the hopes of discovering the key to a vaccine for the fungal virus. It’s an understandably contentious lot with the expectant dynamics found in any group trapped in a tin can with treads battling hungries for seven months. Almost all carry secrets, some easier to hide in their RV lovingly called Rosie. I didn’t recognize Rosie from TGWATG until the very end.

At first the book moves about as fast as Rosie with her tank treads but it helps to build the tension. No one trusts the scientist heading the mission, the army resents his leadership, and no one but Rina understands Stephen and his purpose within their group. They regard him as weird; his expressionless interaction with them, what little there is, prompts them to call him the Robot. He prefers to spend his time in the lab or the airlock away from everyone. And he only allows Rina to touch him but it is a light finger to his wrist and nothing more.

But, focusing only on Stephen for a moment, the reader begins to wonder what makes a person a human. It’s hard to go into detail because I don’t want to give anything away, but his discoveries and his personality lead the readers into nature vs. nurture territory and questions about the fungus and why does it make humans into zombies.

Carey has done his research in science, epidemiology, even how to fix a tank tread, and it shows. A few of the characters, both scientist and army personnel alike, don’t go much deeper than who’s the mechanic, who likes to play poker, who is a good shot, etc. Rina and Stephen are the main characters. Stephen is no Melanie from TGWATG; her wonderfully sweet personality and reactions to the outside world made her so compelling. Stephen is a computer, a robot, but I understood him and he does make this book.

Without giving away too much, TBOTB does intersect with TGWATG at some point. And I loved the ending of this book as well, it made me tear up a tad. There is one character that disappears and we never know what happens to them, even by the end. Possibly a third book? The Boy On The Bridge may not engage as many readers as TGWATG but it is still a good read and could be a standalone but I don’t recommend it. You’ll want the full experience.
5.0 su 5 stelle Zombie book for those that don't like zombie books 22 giugno 2017

Enjoyed this even more than the first book written in this world, "The Girl with All the Gifts". I recommend both, advising to read "Girl" first, although this isn't essential. I normally avoid zombie tales as too-gruesome - I like thoughtful sci fi and don't watch "The Walking Dead", but the details as written in this series aren't excessive or over-the-top. The story has threads of real science that underpin the fictional pathogen. Characters are complex and include a hero with autism and a pregnant woman. And while I felt conflicted and challenged by the ending in "Girl" I found the ending in "Boy" uplifting and a satisfying completion of the two-book story arc. Five stars from someone reluctant to give five star reviews. Hope this becomes a film, as well. Thanks for your work M.R. Carey!
