The Dead

By; Charlie Higson

Everyone in the world under sixteen years of age has watched all people older than them change and die or worse.
Everybody who is sixteen or older has contracted the disease, causing them to die or become delirious and hunger for children.

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.
