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

Naomi Amaya, January 2, 2013

This book is written as interviews telling the story of World War Z, from beginning to end. Mr. Brooks is amazing with description so much so that I was consumed by his words; as though I was the interviewer and the various individuals were telling me what they saw or what they went through. At times this book was scary and for a while I thought perhaps I needed to get my butt back to my local shooting range and log practice hours to hone my targeting skills. But, it's supposed to be fiction, right? (nervous laugh) I highly recommend this book, it is not the cheesy zombie story of old. To me, the main message is "fear and panic" and how it will, would be or is, the greatest weakness of the human race.
