Books we like: The zombie edition

For this month’s book selection we have a couple of good zombie books to choose from.

For an Aussie take on the zombie apocalypse, you won’t be disappointed with Justin Woolley’s trilogy. Start with A Town Called Dust, then A City Called Smoke and A World of Ash (recently released). The series follows the life of a boy named Squid living in the Northern Territory in a future where Australia’s cities has been decimated by a virus turning people into water-sucking ghouls.

What I love about this series is its Aussie flavour. It has everything – zombies, politics, religious zealots, scary nuns, aboriginal characters and even pirates! Woolley has written an exciting ride that gives the zombie genre a new angle. Definitely worth reading.

Next we have Charlie Higson’s The Enemy series. There are seven books in the series so it will last you a while. This young adult zombie series is set in London after all the adults have been infected with a strange virus that makes them want to eat children. Yes, children. Parents eating their kids. Scary enough for you? It’s like Lord of the Flies in a zombie apocalypse. How can kids survive in a world so harsh? The characters’ resilience and ingenuity is quite remarkable. You will definitely be rooting for a couple of them to win. And also for a couple of them to die in a tragic death – because we all know some kids can be pricks. It’s a good book to start on.
