Publisher's Summary

From the author of the million-copy best seller The Girl With All the Gifts comes a heart-stopping thriller with twists you won't see coming and a heroine you can't trust.

Liz Kendall wouldn't hurt a fly. Even when times get tough, she's devoted to bringing up her two kids in a loving home. 

But there's another side to Liz - one that's dark and malicious. She will do anything to get her way, no matter how extreme. 

And when this other side of her takes control, the consequences are devastating.

Love her or hate her: There are two sides to every story....

Bad Reviews Wrong and the Description is Bad

Reading the reviews I feel like most these people read a different book than I did, or they came in expecting zombies and punch-fights, or they have a very low tolerance for weirdness in their fiction. I love Mike Carey's work. I actually liked this book more than Girl With All The Gifts and that is a high bar.

The description is also not at all useful or representative of the plot. (It does, however, keep all the secrets) Sure this book is about Liz who has two sides, but that is like describing Jaws as a movie about a shark and a small boat.

The story is timely, beautiful, tragic, and thoughtful, It had so much depth It has kept me thinking for weeks after finishing it and recommending it to everyone I can.

Buck the negative reviews and listen to this book. You won't be disappointed.

Total Mind _uck

Wow! When I bought this book I wasn’t sure if I’d like it. I lean towards YA Fantasy. Real life is hard man; like stories that can’t happen such as magic, dragons, hunger games. Though you never know about The Hunger Games. Anyway, while one aspect of this book probably isn’t factual the story itself was crazy good. It kept me on the edge of my seat. I drove slower no matter where I was going so I could hear more.

Cartoon fox

Listed under horror (not my usual genre) I read this because I had read M.R. Carey’s previous works and had enjoyed those. This one not so much. The deranged ex that Liz still can’t defend against is an old cliche. The fact that Fran coexists with a cartoon fox reminds me of Jar Jar Binks, especially during the ending scenes. The narrator was fine considering the material she had to work with.

just so so

Not his best. I'm not sure what he was going for here. I loved Girl With All the Gifts & Boy on the Bridge, but I had a harder time connecting with these characters. Plus the parents in here made some questionable choices-especially with a young teen with a very traumatic childhood.

Weird.

Very different from the previous book. Interesting concept though. But if your expecting something similar to the girl with all the gifts, it’s way different

Squishy Places

Fantabulous from the get go... The voice and immediate mood hooked me, and it only got better... Not really what I’d consider horror, mor psychological suspense if you have to label, but honestly the book races across and through genre boundaries... Multiple worlds, sneaky good magical realism, friendship, survival, amongst so many mor delightful components stirred in w/ continuously palpable tension, perfect pacing, and drop dead stellar narration... A read w/ strata and depth... Love a book that stretches my imagination while I try to catch things outta the corner of my eye... If you dug Fellside you’re in for a treat...

I spent most of this book wishing it was over.

By the time it ended I still don’t understand most of what happened. It alternates from seeming supernatural to seeming like it is happening inside someone’s head. It just made no sense.

Great!

This was a great listen! Start to finish, it kept you engrossed. The only down fall was it took a while to get into the narrator.

Different

Very strange and at times hard to follow but I was still entertained. I have read his other books and liked them, which is what drew me to this. Interesting concept and almost just felt like a different viewpoint of mental illness.
