It's a post-apocalyptic scenario; All people over the age of sixteen is largely susceptible to a disease that kills within a matter of days. Those who aren't killed turn into rotting, Flesh eating freaks. It's kids against adults in this action-packed novel, from raging kid on zombie fighting to a conflagration over the entirety of South London, read The Dead to find out what happens.
“Our civilization is flinging itself to pieces. Stand back from the centrifuge.”-Ray Bradbury
This book is essentially the civilized society alone against the savages of the uncivilized societies.
I would recommend this book to anybody who likes action and gore in a novel that has triumphs and failures. It is sure to make you happy and sad with the events that take place.
