Best of the Bunch: August 2015
Today I'm sharing the best book I read in August.
Of the 12 books I read this month, two earned a 5-star review from me:
The Girl with All the Gifts by M. R. Carey
Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman
And the best of the bunch was...
I never read books classified as "horror," but this came highly recommended from many corners, so I gave it a shot. It was fantastic. Yes, it has zombies, but it doesn't dwell as heavily on the gore as you might expect. (There was only one passage I had to skip wholesale.) The characters are diverse in their backgrounds and how they respond to the situations they're thrown into, which makes for an often-surprising, always-intriguing plot. Although the book necessarily has a lot in common with other post-apocalyptic literature, the ending was unique and thought-provoking. Definitely recommended.
