If you fell in love with Melanie in the million-copy-selling post-apocalyptic phenomenon The Girl With All the Gifts - there's more to the story... Once upon a time, in a land blighted by terror, there was a very clever boy. The people thought the boy could save them, so they opened their gates and sent him out into the world. To where the monsters lived.

Melanie is a very special girl. Dr. Caldwell calls her "our little genius". Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant keeps his gun pointing at her while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don't like her. She jokes that she won't bite, but they don't laugh.

In the Nevada desert, an experiment has gone horribly wrong. A cloud of nanoparticles (micro-robots) has escaped from the laboratory. This cloud is self-sustaining and self-reproducing. It is intelligent and learns from experience. For all practical purposes, it is alive. It has been programmed as a predator. It is evolving swiftly, becoming more deadly with each passing hour. Every attempt to destroy it has failed. And we are the prey.

I felt that it was tooooooo long and could have been 200 pages or more shorter and yet still enjoyable. By the end I was like “come on, just finish please!!!”

Just like Da Vinci Code, in the end there is nothing that actually happens.

I still enjoyed Angels & Demons more than this book and Da Vinci Code and I am going to read Inferno and Origin hoping that they would
be as good as his first book!

I have read his previous books and I loved them, however I am so disappointed with this book!!

It has a very STRONG start and you get attached but as the story develops it gets weaker, boring and splashed all over the place!!

So to summarize I would say Beautiful beginning Boring ending.

I liked the parts where Khalid him self was narrating but was not a fan of the other two narrators! (Unclear and heavy accent) however i liked the parts where music was added between some emotional parts .....

I would not recommend this book but highly recommend the previous 2
