World War Z

Post by DeadSockPuppet on Fri Apr 16, 2010 10:37 pm

Almost done with this great book I wanted to share, World War Z by Max Brooks. It's kind of like a collection of short zombie world war stories compiled after the war. It's entertaining and easy to read and it has a guest appearance by the "pee-pee" from WaW. It's worth buying or getting from the library, for those of you that read.

I read this last year. Absolutely awesome story telling. Some of the entries are so powerful you feel like it was an actual war.

The book's premise is that it is a collection of interviews conducted by the "Author" while on a UN fact finding mission on the origins of the zombie outbreak and how it spread across the globe. This collection is all the interviews which aren't included in the official UN report because they were thought to be too personal, and not substantive enough to include in the fact-report. The author then went ahead and included these stories in the collection which is the book itself.

Just finished it a few weeks ago. Really puts you in the mood to kill zombies. I also recommend for you non readers Max Brooks Graphic novel "Recorded Attacks". If you have read the zombie survival guide, it is an illustrated version of the recorded attacks section from the end of the book. They also have a books on tape version of World War Z which apparently has some guest stars doing the voice overs. Not sure who though.

You can also check out the full cast audiobook version in the meantime. It rocks. Seriously. Mark Hamill lends his voice for a few characters FTW.

That does sound cool I'm looking into the book now maybe I'll pick up the audio books as well if I can get a good price on it, books are usually better than the movies so I rather read the book first just in case the movie butchers it lol.
