World War Z

World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War - Max Brooks

Why didn't I read this years ago????


Beats the hell out of me. I LOVED it. Way more than I expected to love it. I'm not a fan of zombies, or history books, but this was just...agdhah. I have no words.


I would definitely say it's not for everyone. The format, fact that it's told by survivors, and the similarity of character voices could all be turn offs. I didn't find them to be so, personally...the suspense of how humanity would survive kept me going.


I did think, given that this was written by Max Brooks, that is would be humorous, but it's not really. Not a big loss though, as I don't find zombies particularly amusing anyway.
