Friday's for the Guys: The Enemy

Every Friday I highlight books and authors that are ones boys might really enjoy. I'm not saying girls wouldn't read these books, but they are clearly "guy" books.

This week I'm highlighting:
The Enemy
by Charlie Higson
From Goodread
In the wake of a devastating disease, everyone older than sixteen is either dead or a decomposing, brainless creature with a ravenous appetite for flesh. Teens have barricaded themselves in buildings throughout London and venture outside only when they need to scavenge for food. The group of kids living at Waitrose supermarket is beginning to run out of options. When a mysterious traveler arrives and offers them safe haven at Buckingham Palace, they begin a harrowing journey across London. But their fight is far from over— the threat from within the palace is as real as the one outside it. Full of unexpected twists and quick-thinking heroes, The Enemy is a fast-paced, whiteknuckle tale of survival in the face of unimaginable horror.
Why I like it
There are a lot of zombie books out right now, but many of them seem girl centered.  This is a great sounding one that seems to have more boy appeal.  Besides, have you seen the book trailer??? See below if not!

I also found two other covers.  I like the one at the top of the post best, but what do you think?

Wait there's another trailer too!!!

  1. I started this a few weeks ago and am having the hardest time reading it. As a mom, it is really disturbing! The kids in the book call the zombies "grown ups," "mothers" and "fathers", not just zombies. And when they recall their life before and their loving parents that they now have to kill it is super disturbing!
