The Boy on the Bridge by M.R. Carey
This is the second book I’ve read by M.R. Carey and now I have a bit of an addiction. It takes a special kind of story to draw me into a post apocalyptic world. They’re typically downers and scare the heebie-jeebies out of me! M.R. Carey has created such a twisted, unpredictable tale or self sacrifice, altruism, messy mistakes and zombies. I’m not even a zombie fan, but I loved the book! The Boy on the Bridge is the bookends to The Girl With all the Gifts.
Make sure you read about the girl first. It’ll all make more sense that way.
