The Dead is the second book in Charlie Higson's jaw-dropping zombie horror series for teens. Everyone over the age of fourteen has succumbed to a deadly zombie virus and now the kids must keep themselves alive. A terrible disease is striking everyone over the age of fourteen. Death walks the streets. Nowhere is safe. Maxie, Blue and the rest of the Holloway crew aren't the only kids trying to escape the ferocious adults who prey on them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from the enemy was better, but good 2nd book i will be reading the rest of this series. two thumbs up for 2nd book. themes: truth, friendship, death, blood, gore, "zombies", adults, kids, survival, fighting, team work pros - lot's of action, suspense, gore (similar to the enemy) - get ready of another action packed edge of your seat ride - as you get towards the end you will know when this part of the story takes place and who is who (from the enemy) - your fingers will be flying though the pages cons: - i gave it 3/5, because i liked the characters from the enemy more (and it was a little hard for me to get into them) - i kept thinking when is the Waitrose group coming in??? - introduction to entire new group(s) now i have to try and remember everyone definitely will be reading the rest of the series. i anticipate the rest of the books to be just as great as the first and second. i'm lining up for a 3rd and 4th ride in this intense horror post-apocalyptic roller coaster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Book Ever I read this book not knowing at all what to expect. I dont like zombies or that kind of thing, but this book just ROCKED! The characters were amazing, and the action was so vivid in my mind. I could picture everything perfectly. This book also has a large amount of blood and gore and language, so if you have a weak stomach, stay away from it! Either way, It is still so awesome. The plot is smart, gritty and funny all rolled into one. Get this book. It is worth it.
