"Fienden är första boken i thrillerserien "De levande döda".

Alla vuxna - föräldrar, lärare, drottningar - blev sjuka när epidemin bröt ut. En del hade tur och dog snabbt. Andra Ruttnade inifrån, blev vanställda av bölder och variga sår. De är skräckinjagande och mycket farliga. Levande döda.

Barnen kämpar för att överleva. För att hitta mat och ett tryggt ställe att såva på. Ryktet går att Buckingham Palace är en fristad, men hur ska de ta sig dit? Mammor och pappor lurar överallt. De är hungriga. Och de äter helst barn..."

The enemy was the first zombie-like apocalyptic book I've read. The characters each have unique styles and background each playing a key role in the overall development in the fight of survival against zombies and amongst themselves. ( )

I'm not usually all that big of a zombie fan, but this book was amazingly crafted and very enjoyable for a zombie-apocalyptic horror novel.

An unidentified disease has swept through London, and perhaps the world, infecting everyone over the age of sixteen. Morphed into horrifying monsters riddled with all manner of nauseating physical wounds, they have nothing left but the desire to devour living things. Namely, the children who are left to fend for themselves on the streets of the massive city. But word is that Buckingham Palace has become a safe haven for kids...if you can get there. And even if you do, it isn't certain that you'll find a paradise at all.

Make no mistake, this book is violent and graphic and pulls few punches. But it doesn't feel gratuitous, it just feels disturbingly realistic. The young age of the protagonists doesn't dumb down the book in the slightest, and the author does a good job of keeping the youthful confusion and yearning while also toughening up these hardy survivors to incredible levels. The cast of characters is wide and varied, and there's something to enjoy and admire about almost every kid, from tough little Sam who navigates sewers and zombies all on his own, to swaggering fighter Achilleus (cool name, by the way), to kick-butt, level-headed leader Maxie, to the quiet and clever skirmisher Ollie, to the crazy awesome, scene-stealing loner named simply The Kid.

Suspense, great character interplay, realism, and a plot that's moving in very interesting directions all adds up to me being very happy that the sequel is only a couple months away. ( )

The Enemy by Charlie Higson is set in London, England and is filled with kids under the age of fifteen trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world where they are being hunted by ‘grown-ups’ and disease ridden animals. It’s a battle from beginning to end, seeing as there are more dangers than just mindless zombies, which makes The Enemy one of those few zombie books that cannot be deemed as run-of-the-mill. Of course, if we take into account the fact that it’s a young adult book, we can already get a little idea as to what we’re in store for, but don’t let the tag ‘young adult’ deter you from reading this gem. It’s gory, it’s gruesome and at times I forgot that the target audience of this book is 15 years old.
What is The Enemy about?
Well, after reading it, I can only call it something between Lord of the Flies and The Walking Dead. In other words, it’s awesome. The Enemy also somehow reminded me of P.D. James’ Omegas in The Children of Men for some reason … We have David King, who wants to be king of Britain and has taken residence in Buckingham Palace. We have the Holloway Kids, a group of kids that came from two supermarkets – Waitrose and Morrisons – who are trying to get there in one piece. We have Small Sam, who is trying to get back to the Holloway Kids after he was captured by grown-ups and run into some freaky cannibals along the way. Also, we have St George, a ruthless and clever grown-up that’s changing the way the ‘zombies’ hunt their prey. Basically, the guy has a grudge. Throw the archers into the mix – a group of girls that later joins up with the Holloway Kids – the squatters in St James’ Park, the group of kids living in The Tower of London and then apparently a group of kids living in a museum.
It’s anarchy in London and horror-lovers will love it.
My favourite characters were The Kid and Ollie. However, I have a feeling that Achilles will be a big player in the future.
That being said, it would be wise not to get too attached to the characters. Charlie Higson is keen on killing off the kids just as soon as you fall in love with them. I won’t post any spoilers, but it would be smart not to get attached. Believe me.
The Enemy is a fun read and I really enjoyed it. After you’ve let your young’uns read Goosebumps and Fear Street, this would be a great introduction into the gorier side of horror. However, I wouldn’t give this book to a newbie horror reader.
