The Dead by Charlie Higson
Delightfully descriptive! Hooks you from the first page! Didn’t want to put this book down! Fast-paced non-stop zombie action! Walking Dead fans of all ages will enjoy this book!
I like a book that grabs me, holds on tight, and will not let go.This is one of those books.
The words are brought to life on the pages.Charlie Higson takes you inside the minds of these characters with an incredible connection. He allows us to step into the minds of some of the characters who are changing into zombies and see what they feel as they are changing, how the disease effects their minds. It is wonderful! Charlie Higson has quickly become one of my go-to authors. I CAN’T wait to read the next book in the series!
I read the first book The Enemy about a year ago. It wasn’t fresh in my mind so I couldn’t remember exactly what it was all about. This second book The Dead takes us back to the very beginning when everything just started- with a whole different cast of characters.Even though this book takes place before the first book, after reading a few pages, the details of the first book all came flooding back to me. That’s just how good of a writer Charlie Higson is. He makes sure you don’t forget his stories.
My favorite character in this story had to be Chris Marker. He was a book-lover so of course he is going to be my favorite!
My favorite lines from the book:
…in a funny way the story he was reading became the real world for him, more alive than the world he found himself in when he lifted his eyes from the page, blinking and lost. Real life was nothing more than a tiny interruption to his reading. -Chris Marker
