I wouldn't let my 12 yr old daughter read it. I'm sure she'd have nightmares for weeks! There's a lot of violence in the book and gory details. I think it more suitable for 14 yrs and older.

My son was 10 when he read it, and he really enjoyed it. He certainly didn't have any nightmares. But then, zombies are his thing.

My DD wanted to read the book, she is 12. she now has severe anxiety and separation issues and says it is because of the book. She is currently fast asleep on the floor of my bedroom.

My Daughter is now 13 and read both The Enemy & The Dead. She absolutely adores them and were the first books that she ever really got in to. Since then she has read the Gone series- She liked the fact that it was just a world of kids that was left- No Grown ups. But, saying that, they could be slightly gory and upsetting for a child of a nervous disposition.
Hope it helps x

My 12 year old says this (and The Dead) is her favourite book. My 9 year old has tried it but finds it a bit scary. I think it depends on the child and his or her exposure to other horror-type stories.

my 13 year old son was OK with it as he has a strong stomach, but I wouldn`t want his 12 year old sister to read it. I have some images in my head from the book which I´d rather not have!
