5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal, 29 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Enemy (Paperback)
I purchased this book when it first came out having not read any other Higson books or really felt strongly about zombies! I am an avid reader and not afraid to delve into the "young adult" or "children's" section of the book shop.
I was hooked from the very beginning of this book and finished it in just a couple of days with tense shoulders, widening eyes and jumps at things that go bump in the night! Charlie Higson is not afraid to give us nightmares, nor is he afraid to give his readers food for thought, space to digest or time to make up their own minds, rarely is so much credit given to children and I applaud it. I love that this book is not an endless telling of what's happening, what people are thinking or how they feel, unlike what you find in most young adult books, Higson uses a sophisticated style which allows the reader to build a picture themselves, see the characters their own way and form their own opinions about the events unfolding. Its also deliciously gory!
This should be compulsory reading for all 13 year old children, especially those who do not yet have a love of reading. I have read the whole series and wait with bated breath for the next installment.
