Publisher's Summary

A brand-new heart-stopping audiobook from Charlie Higson, author of the best-selling Young Bond series, read by Paul Whitehouse - the most exciting thing you'll hear all year.
They'll chase you. They'll rip you open. They'll feed on you....
When the sickness came, every parent, policeman, politician - every adult - fell ill. The lucky ones died. The others are crazed, confused and hungry.
Only children under 14 remain whole, and they're fighting to survive. Now there are rumours of a safe place to hide. And so a gang of children begin their quest across London, where all through the city - down alleyways, in deserted houses, underground - the grown-ups lie in wait. But can they make it there alive?

Great first book, what about the others?

I really enjoyed this story. It was well written and I eventually got into Paul Whitehouse's narration. Since completing it I have bought the three books (so far) in paper back and come back regularly to check if the next books have made it to audio format yet. This is one of the best zombie series of books out there, and I have ploughed through lots. If you like blood, guts and gore, you'll love it. Looking forward to the rest of the series.

Very authentic and characters were intriguing.

What made the experience of listening to The Enemy the most enjoyable?

Plot was simple but still entertaining and characters involved you and gave rise to wanting to know what happened at each juncture.

What did you like best about this story?

Likability of characters and there are some very funny/odd moments .

Which character – as performed by Paul Whitehouse – was your favourite?

All of the main group had admirable traits and interacted together but not always as you'd expect.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

If you want an easy read about kids resourcefulness , I know the two wouldn't normally go together but it works !!
