Review: World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War

World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War
World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War by Max Brooks
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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.

(Companion Viewing: Film School Rejects’ “Ken Burns’ World War Z,” available on YouTube…that’s how the film should have been done!)
