The Boy On The Bridge review

41gHgU2b7iL The Boy On The Bridge

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.

The title has to be some kind of metaphor that I only barely get, because there’s no boy in this book (there’s a girl) and there’s no bridge (just lots of roads and nearly impassable fields). This book is a prequel to the rough around the edges zombie survival novel “The Girl With All The Gifts“, though there’s a epilogue that takes place way after the events of both books. Neither of these books are amazing enough to suggest you run out and read them, but they’re a quick enough read to add some pulpy fun to your summer if you can find them for under $3. Much more than that though and eh…..

There’s a couple other things to note that are somewhat related to this book, but only in the most remote personal tangent. On the Kindle app, instead of pages it gives you segments that you’ve completed and have left in the book, which is great unless they pad the backend of the book with a preview of a future book. I was all set to read for about an hour last night and the story ended with about 15% left of the book according to the kindle indicator, so I got about 15 minutes of reading instead of the full hour. Not the worst thing in the world, but I know they’re able to make those determinations based on the actual content of the book, after all they skip the cover, indicia and chapter list when you first open the book, surely they can just calculate to the final page of the story and not to the final page of the file.

The other and final item, I though I had actually lost the tablet that I started to read this on. I remembered taking it with me on a trip, then not seeing it all when I got back. Maybe I left it on top of the car? Maybe I left it at the bar? Maybe it was stolen? Nope, my wife had tucked it into her yarn back and found it a couple months later when she finally worked her way through the back unpacking stuff from it.

Two months to unpack! It’s a record in some ways ?
