It was an amazing book. I read it a few times, own it and the entire trilogy and it is my favorite of all books i've read. It is slightly violent because it is in a zombie apocalypse so you have the deaths, but nothing extreme. There is no language, and nothing extremely sexual, just some kissing. Children younger, at youngest 11 could read this too, because it really isn't that extreme in it's content, but it might be scary for littler children, thinking that one day we might actually become zombies, and give them nightmares, so know your self or your child. But above all, I highly recommend this book. Adults will also like it, because I recommended it to my aunt, and she loved it.
