The Girl With All the Gifts – Book versus Movie #1

I read this book a while back and quite enjoyed it. Not my favorite zombie book, but definitely in the top 10 (if we count the Autumn (yes, I went there again) series as 1, and Newsflesh as 1). It takes a somewhat different spin of the story and Melanie is a great narrator. While I didn’t manage to catch the movie adaptation in the cinema (it didn’t show at my local ones), I’ve seen it now!

And? I’m a firm believer of “the book was better”, and I still think that was the case here – but not by much. The movie’s storyline stays pretty true to the book, and the characters gave me the same kind of feeling as they did in the book. (I’ll allow the last third veering off a bit, the end was still “right”.)
