This book was a revelation. I’d never read the Zombie Survival Handbook but had read several reviews of the film “World War Z” which complained that it wasn’t as good as the book, so I had to find out what the book was like.
I enjoy works of alternate history, and World War Z does not disappoint on that note. The book really makes you believe in the characters and feel every moment of the terror and will to survive they exhibit. I suspect some of the passages will stay with me for quite some time. I’m no zombie enthusiast, and I absolutely could not put this book down. Highly recommended for those who enjoy zombie fiction, alternate history, and apocalyptic fiction.
