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 fourteen remain, 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?

Our customer reviews

The Enemy by Charlie Higson is a novel that shouldn't go unread or placed on the book shelf to be read later. It should be read from the moment you pick it up. A high action packed adventure with the most original and unpredictable plot I've ever read. Check out my review: more
by Leeroy
This was advertised as a book for young adults. I would say that it was suitable for anyone over the age of 14. I really enjoyed the storyline and became engrossed very quickly in the characters. I have lent it out to a couple of friends and they too said how much they enjoyed it. When will the follow on book be published? I can't more
