The enemy by Charlie Higson 

Publishers’ blurb

They’ll chase you.  They’ll rip you open.  They’ll feed on you . . . When the sickness came, every parent, policeman, politician – every adult –fell ill. The lucky ones died. The others are crazed, confused and hungry. Only children under fourteen remain, and they’re fighting to survive. Now there are rumours of a safe place to hide. And so a gang of children begin their quest across London, where all through the city – down alleyways, in deserted houses, underground – the grown-ups lie in wait.

But can they make it there – alive?

  1. I will be writing about The Enemy by Charlie Higson .It is about a mystery virus that no one knows what it is .The lucky adults died but for some they turned into Zombies grown-ups as they are called in the book .Everyone over 14 died so they had to learn how to survive by themself .Then a boy known as Magic man comes and tells them that the centre of London is completly free of Grown ups so they begin on thir epic journey through the terrorised streets of London and when they arrive at buckingham palace, They find that things arn’t much better.

    The Enemy is a fast-paced action story that that you cant put down. It is exciting and is a thrilling, adventure that is a MUST READ book and should be on the short list.


  2. I absolutely loved reading this book. It is a book that I think many teenage boys would absolutely love and get completed gripped by. From the very first page it is a thrillingly terrifying ride through the streets of London.

    Don’t let a grown up catch you!!!!

    Can’t wait for the sequel.

  4. The book is a fast-paced thriller which keeps you wanting more.
    It seems a little confusing to begin with but it balances out well.

    A follow-up book is coming out soon, and it’s on my ‘Want List’ for certain.
