The Enemy
review 1: I have read The Sacrifice by Charlie Higson. It is the fourth book in his Enemy series. It is about a sickness that has spread throughout London, England affecting only patrons over the age of fourteen. The series takes place in third person all across London in the perspective of multiple groups of kids and individuals in different points of time during the apocalypse. I enjoyed the book because it was action-packed and the author does a phenomenal job at telling the story from a teen perspective. It is easy to relate to the struggles of the protagonists as the fight everyday to survive and keep their peers alive. The book also teaches you where you can go in London in the event of the "zombie" apocalypse if you stick together in large packs and are lucky enough to get in... more. The events of The Sacrifice tells the chapter of the story through the perspective of the kids who survived in the Tower of London eight days after the events of the third book in the franchise, The Fear. I would recommend this book for you if you enjoy any survival stories like The Maze Runner by James Dashner, or the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. There is a bit of profanity and a lot of British slang in it, but I would still recommend it for school libraries. There are three more books after The Sacrifice which will include The Fallen, which is coming out this summer, The Hunted, and The End. I hope that if you are interested, you can get your hands on a copy of The Enemy, or if you are already read up, The Sacrifice.
review 2: I decided to read The Sacrifice by Charlie Higson because I had read the other books in the series and liked them. A character I found interesting was Sam. I found Sam interesting because of his determination to find his sister even after he was abducted. When Sam escaped the adults and found the castle, he met "The Kid" and he was constantly telling the kid about how he had to leave soon to find his sister. This was interesting because at this point Sam had no idea where his sister Ella was or even if she was alive or not. At this point it seemed that the goal of finding his sister was how he coped through scary situations like escaping from the diseased adults. "He smiled and in the darkness three hundred other grown ups smiled with him." This is my favorite quote because it shows how the "Grown ups" are developing as a separate race to the children and teenagers. It is interesting because it shows how the went from not even being able to walk and mindlessly stumbling about looking for human flesh by themselves. To now where they are working as a collective team to actually hunt children and teenagers and pick of the clans one by one. Something in the book that i thought deeply about was how this book shows well exaggerates what could happen if a deadly or brain altering disease where to strike somewhere and how it would change everyone's lives so much. This reminds me of something like the black plague where many people catch it and go crazy and die. This book shows how it wouldn't be that hard for something like that to happen again, it made me think about what I would do if that happened if i wasn't already dead. less
