Finally! I was wondering how long it would take me to meet a zombie book I didn’t like.
The story of this one is simple enough: a strange illness turns everyone over fourteen into brainless cannibals, so the plucky kids have to survive as they wander across London looking for a safe haven
The world-without-adults thing has been done better, and the fast-angry zombies thing has been done much better; notably in 28 Days Later. So while this book wasn’t awful, I could have watched 28 Days Later a couple of times in the amount of time it took me to read it, so it was a wasted effort.
28 Days Later is a great movie. You should watch it.
