What are you afraid of? Drowning, fire, suffocation, abandonment, being eaten alive, having your head used as a centerpiece? Well…all that and more can be found in Charlie Higson’s world. *grins* I love this man!
The Fear, fun, and action picks up five days before the end of the previous book, The Dead. Mr. Higson has been playing with the timeline all along, but this story just fit and locked into place with the previous books like a key in a lock. Beautiful, bloody storytelling! With patience, ...more

For those unfamiliar with the series, Charlie Higson's books are set in contemporary London where a "28 Days Later" style virus has affected every adult, turning them into a ravenous flesh-eating monster. Children and young teens are unaffected and band t ...more
These books are destroying my soul and I don't think I can take it haha.
The Fear begins a few days before the start of The Enemy, and features primarily characters from The Dead as they journey across London trying to find what happened to their friends that they got separated from a year ago. It does get to a point where it happens simultaneously with The Enemy. I really liked the way that this was done and it brought the groups characters together neatly.
I keep finding myself get ...more
I finished reading The Fear last night and I am still not completely over what had happened! I totally started to bawl my eyes out once I was less than 100 pages towards the end. HOLY GUACAMOLE! Talk about an ending!
Seriously, each book in this series keeps getting better and better than the last. Just like the previous two books, The Fear was full on action-packed, gruesome, heart-wrenching and just plain insane.

Wow, a very very good book 3. Although I'm tired of getting to know a whole group of kids only have most of them die by the end, I'm at least remembering who our key players are and how they are going from book to book.
But I can already tell that the order is killing me. I wish I'd read 2 first, then this one, then the next one THEN book 1 THEN book 5. ...more
Having read the first three books in The Enemy series, I have become enamored with his writing abilities and absolutely shocked by how each book becomes progressively more and more fantastic, even when I don’t think it’s possible.
Higson’s ability to interweave multiple story arcs, character arcs, and plotlines without sacrificing the quality or depth of any of them is absolutely mag ...more
And that feeling is, WHERE IS THE REST!?
In case you didn't know, in a nutshell, this book is the third in a series (with more to come) where all adults over the age of 14 (is it 14? i think it was) have either died, or become brainless, kiddy-eating zombi ...more
I loved this book, the third book in the Enemy series, ...more
On reread, I'm bumping this up to 4 stars. Reading the books back to back, it's so obvious how many threads are running through the story and how they're all starting to pull together. Yes, it's gory and horrific and heartbreaking. But it's also fun and tense and constantly intriguing, even when it's stabbing you in the feels by killing your favourite characters.
3.5 stars. I don't know what it was about this book, but I didn't enjoy it QUITE as much as the previous books. I fee ...more
As these books progress, they get more gory and also more disturbing.
There were just times I had to stop reading, stop going on, and sometimes I just had to skip. And at other times I wanted to know more.
There are new disgusting characters in here. We got the collector, my God, he was scary and disturbing. Taking and maiming kids, and doing God knows what to them. We also have St George (who I knew from the next book), who is a very scary, smart and organized zombie. We also got vario ...more
The only problem with reading this way is that after awhile my brain was getting a little fuzzy; plot events started to blur together. Apology in advance for any weirdness in this review.

The fear follows Dognut and his gang through London, England in a post-apocalyptic scenario where there are zombies around just about every corner. When the disease hit, the doctors were confused. It only affected people 16 and older. Some just died, the unlucky ones however, did something entirely different. They were turned into zombies (although the ...more
In this horrifying world, children are battling for their lives against their mothers, fathers, and older siblings. (In THE ENEMY, the read ...more
The plot of this disaster took its roll in modern Londen, well what's left of it. It also involves local towns as well as museums and othe ...more
This book is meant to disturb you, although it is brilliantly written. Very descriptive, especially when you ...more
He makes you genuinely care for these kids, then just rips your heart out when he lets them get eaten.
It's not all zombies and gore, he has real character development, relationships, exactly what kids would go thru even without an apocalypse.
I loved how it filled in some of the gaps of the other books.
Really tempted to just go buy the next couple because I did not want this one to end.
Like seriously what did i just read i spent days reading this and i didn't see a plot coming.Mainly the story is a group of kids to go find another group of kids who are completely useless and 300 and something pages later they find the group but when they return WITHOUT the useless group they die like wtf?Maybe its just because i didnt read the books before this but no need to cause this tells everything.The only interesting part was the last hundred pages wher ...more
