    Feed de Mira Grant (Aerrin99, andreablythe, HenriMoreaux)
    Aerrin99: An awesome look at the world post-zombie-apocalypse with history, politics, and fantastic world building.
  2. 152
    The Passage de Justin Cronin (divinenanny)
  3. 131
    The Walking Dead, Volume 01: Days Gone Bye de Robert Kirkman (Aerrin99)
    Aerrin99: An awesome look at the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse in the longer term.
  4. 153
    The Stand de Stephen King (timspalding)
  5. 91
    Robopocalypse de Daniel H. Wilson (timspalding)
    timspalding: Very similar style.
  6. 70
    El dia dels trífids de John Wyndham (infjsarah)
    infjsarah: Older sci-fi but still very effective. Survival against mindless, ever increasing enemy.
  7. 60
    Earth Abides de George R. Stewart (timspalding)
  8. 61
    Y: The Last Man Vol. 01: Unmanned de Brian K. Vaughan (MyriadBooks)
  9. 72
    Patient Zero de Jonathan Maberry (stmartins)
    stmartins: Also a killer Zombie thriller and an awesome first book in the "Joe Ledger" series. Teaser and free prequal story avaiable at stmartins.com/JonathanMaberry
  10. 62
    Parable of the Sower de Octavia E. Butler (storyjunkie)
    storyjunkie: Both are tales of how to survive a world gone mad, though there are no zombies in Butler's. Both works' treatment of the human questions are equally nuanced, variable, and detailed.
  11. 41
    Zone One de Colson Whitehead (ahstrick)
  12. 30
    Zombie CSU: The Forensics of the Living Dead de Jonathan Maberry (ShelfMonkey)
  13. 64
    And the Band Played On: Politics, People, and the AIDS Epidemic de Randy Shilts (timspalding)
    timspalding: Some may take offense at the suggestion, but I think don't think World War Z could have been written without And the Band Played On, an oral history of the all-too-real AIDS epidemic. Shilts' is by far the better book, even if it weren't true and important.… (més)
  14. 20
    The Three de Sarah Lotz (sparemethecensor)
    sparemethecensor: Speculative fiction, same piecey storytelling style.
  15. 20
    The Rising de Brian Keene (yoyogod)
    yoyogod: The Rising is probably my favorite zombie novel.
  16. 31
    Handling the Undead de John Ajvide Lindqvist (ijustgetbored)
    ijustgetbored: A completely different take on zombies: here, they're not "out to get you," just beings who may or may not have souls, and Lindqvist treats all those related questions.
  17. 20
    Breathers: A Zombie's Lament de S. G. Browne (FFortuna)
  18. 21
    The Dogs of War: The Courage, Love, and Loyalty of Military Working Dogs de Lisa Rogak (MyriadBooks)
    MyriadBooks: Yes, it's a history nonfiction being recommended for association with World War Z, but readers who enjoyed Darnell Hackworth's interview will love the true stories in this book.

    Day by Day Armageddon de J. L. Bourne (rcollett)

I'm not always the biggest fan of zombie stories, but I do love post apocalyptic stories.

This one was pretty close to five stars for me, but in the end it didn't quite get there. Well above average, though. What I felt weren't quite what I was looking for were the credibility of the zombies as well as the lack of tension in the writing. Now, I do get that this book is an "after the fact" recollection of events and it's not supposed to be a thriller or anything, but I still expect a certain pull in post apocalyptic books that makes it exciting.

Then again, this was really well executed for an interview formatted dossier of survival stories from a zombie apocalypse. This also managed to hit me in the feels a couple of times toward the end, though it didn't quite make me cry.

A solid read, which I'm glad for reading. ( )

I do not read zombie novels; however, I had heard good things about this one. So, in the spirit of “never say never,” I gave it a try. This book is an oral “history” of the zombie apocalypse. As the story opens, it has already occurred, and the narrator is interviewing participants from across the globe. My main complaint is the way women are portrayed. Other than that, I have to admit being pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the storyline. It will not, however, become standard fare in my reading list. ( )

Reading this as we are (hopefully) nearing the end of the pandemic made some elements feel prescient, mostly in the beginning of the book. The second half started to feel like a Hollywood disaster movie, with the hero American president leading his troops to save the day. The heavy dose of American exceptionalism left a bad taste in my mouth.

There were some good ideas here, and some enjoyable stories. However, the writing didn't do enough to make each voice feel like an individual, and the representation of other cultures often relied heavily on stereotyping.

Three stars, mostly for the first half of the book. ( )

This book is a collection of stories from survivors of the zombie apocalypse as told to the narrator, who is traveling around the world to record their tales. My enjoyment varied from story to story; not all of the were interesting or engaging but I like the majority of them. Some were incredibly harrowing, others touching; there is definitely a range of different stories. I liked that many of them were focused on the military and political aspects-- this perspective isn't one that I've read a lot in post-apocalyptic/dystopian novels so it was a nice change.

I highly recommend listening to the full-cast audiobook version of this. It is very well produced with some all-star names playing the characters. The different actors really brought the story to life, and I enjoyed hearing their various accents. It made the whole thing more convincing. Also since the book was written as an oral history, I feel like this is the way the story should really be enjoyed. ( )

I picked this book up from a friend at a Books, Beers, and Pizza get together ages and ages ago, and somehow it seemed like a good idea to pick it up early in a global pandemic? I question my decision-making sometimes.

The chapters more focused on the actual zombies and the battles and defenses were of course (luckily?) different enough from what was going on all around me. But then chapters on the virus itself, or people taking advantage of others' fears, the nationalistic approaches and hoarding of resources... well, those chapters were all a little extra bitter (and extra familiar) reading this right now. But then it would go back to fighting zombies again, and that's a good distraction.

I do think it ended up on the enjoyable side of catharsis, so maybe it wasn't such a terrible decision after all. ( )
