World War Z Revie
Zombies have been around in the pop culture for decades now, and you might think that the genre's become watered down, unoriginal, or stupid. This book proves you wrong.
While it is written from the perspective of a UN reporter, this is merely the framing device for various short stories from various people about various events that took place during the ten-year war against the legions of mindless, flesh-eating zombies. This concept is an interesting idea, as it allows the reader to get a global sense of what this near-apocalypse did to the world.
This isn't a book you should be reading to little kids- there is some serious, hardcore nightmare fuel to be found in this book (I still get the shivers when I think about the events that went down in Japan).
Otherwise, this book is great for almost anyone, be they zombiologist, action-hound or even just someone with some time to spare for reading. by Michael Burnard
More than just Zombies
This is a great read that is about so much more than Zombies. Zombies are mearly the landscape that Max Brooks uses to explore the human spirit.
I can't reccomend this book highly enough. by James Pockley
a must read
Done as a series of interviews of 'survivors of the zombie war', this book tells how humanity withered, weathered and adjusted to a global zombie outbreak.
Terrificly moody and evocative, and covering so many aspects of life, this really is a must read for anyone who's ever read, seen, or heard of anything about zombies - for lovers of horror in general, and even for those whoe like war stories.
A great, great fun, atmospheric read - couldn't recommend highly enough! by Andrew Irwin
