Fiction. Horror. Literature. Science Fiction. HTML:#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Prepare to be entranced by this addictively readable oral history of the great war between humans and zombies.Entertainment Weekly
 
We survived the zombie apocalypse, but how many of us are still haunted by that terrible time? We have (temporarily?) defeated the living dead, but at what cost? Told in the haunting and riveting voices of the men and women who witnessed the horror firsthand, World War Z is the only record of the pandemic.
 
The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched first-hand experiences of the survivors, traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of thirty million souls to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet. He recorded the testimony of men, women, and sometimes children who came face-to-face with the living, or at least the undead, hell of that dreadful time. World War Z is the result. Never before have we had access to a document that so powerfully conveys the depth of fear and horror, and also the ineradicable spirit of resistance, that gripped human society through the plague years.

Usually, I dislike zombie movies and stories, but I was impressed by this. It's really well done, like a collection of interviews from a real event. The cast does a good job presenting the overall story and it's enjoyable to listen to. ( )
  JohnMB69 | Feb 23, 2024 |
I think this book was more like a distopian work of fiction than pure horror. It's not really a novel: it's a collection of fictional interviews with survivors of a zombie epidemic. People from all creeds and nations describe national politics and personal feelings.
This book is more like a very elaborate description of a setting, a bit like what Jose Saramago does in Death With Interruptions. It was a fascinating read. ( )
  jd7h | Feb 18, 2024 |
This book is totally great.

Depressing, oddly realistic for a book about zombies, and very readable. It's not gross, it's not scary in a horror movie type way, it's just fascinating in it's realism and it's ability to make you think: "Wow! I can totally see this happening in real life." And THAT is scary. ( )
  hmonkeyreads | Jan 25, 2024 |
An interview style of writing. Not a bad story the way it covered different people's reaction to events. ( )
  SteveMcI | Jan 5, 2024 |
This is good. I love zombie books when strategies are explained. My all time favorite was the
"Raj-Singh Maneuver", named after the indian general.
I love to see how people may react to a zombie outbreak, and it seemed to me like most of the interviews were close enough to reality. ( )

'Fear is the most valuable commodity in the universe' Turn on the TV what are you seeing? People selling you products? No. People selling you the fear of you having to live without their products' Fear of aging, fear of loneliness, fear of poverty, fear of failure. Fear is the most basic emotion we have.
