Description:
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. Melanie loves school. She loves learning about spelling and sums and the world outside the classroom and the children's cells. She tells her favourite teacher all the things she'll do when she grows up. Melanie doesn't know why this makes Miss Justineau look sad.

ABC Book Group. Some of us had seen the film and thought it followed the book well (the author wrote the film script so that was to be expected!). Bit wordy, over use of clunky similies. Bit American-ised. Frustrating that we didn't know how the Breakdown happened and why the fungus was there in the first place. Thought that Parks' character was a bit inconsistent. Was brutal at first then quite compassionate after they left the base. Built up an exciting conclusion. Too much description of 'Rosie' (the mobile lab), unnecessary. Was it a 'Road' novel'? Yes, a journey where the characters change and adapt to the developments around them. Use of present tense brings immediacy and fits with the story line. Shocking (when the find the Hungry with the baby carriage), visceral. 7/10.
