World War Z de Max Brooks (2006)

  1. 202
    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 liked this book way more than I expected to. This book is the story of a zombie infestation told from many people perspective of the crisis. I thought this book had a lot of important messages about everything from immigration to community. I haven't read a ton of zombie like stories so I wasn't completely sure about what to expect. I listened to the audiobook for this one which is something I don't do very often (thought I'm starting to try to borrow more from my library) but I think that it was the right decision for this book, especially as it is titled as a oral history. The copy I listened to had a full cast and I thought all the narrators were very good in their roles(it even had Mark Hamill). I know some people really don't like audiobooks, but I would say if your thinking about reading this book to try the audiobook if you can get your hands on it. I also know some people don't like changing perspectives in books, but I've never had a problem with it and I thought it worked really well in this book. I really liked seeing how different survivors from different places dealt with the outbreak. I found myself being really interested in the stories of all the different people. During my listening of this I didn't really think of it as a zombie book because it is really character based. It was really more about many different peoples different approaches to surviving a crisis so if you want a more horror like, gory, zombie story this may not be the book you are looking for. Overall I really enjoyed this story, way more than I thought I would, I really liked the audiobook, and I would encourage people thinking about reading this book to definitely pick it up, whether as an audiobook or a print one.

Wish I hadn't listened to the abridged version. Very enjoyable and thematic though. Might actually read the book to just make sure I get everything. ( )

Well, it was okay. Would've been better if all the character's oral histories weren't written in the exact same slightly stilted voice. You have characters from all walks of life, from all over the world, telling first person narratives -- they should not all talk the same. Still, some of the stories were quite compelling and none were uninteresting. This book is not really all that memorable, but it kept me interested and reasonably entertained throughout. I actually enjoyed the movie of the same name more. (that's about all the book & film have in common, the name). ( )

A wonderfully detailed and realistic portrayal of how the world reacts to and eventually handles a zombie plague. Brooks's characters are diverse and real, whether they're religious zealots, PSTD-ridden veterans, tired politicians, or even just (amoral?) people doing what they need to to survive.

The different ways that countries around the world reacted were beautifully realistic - some couldn't get over their existing relationships with their neighbors, countries tending towards isolationism went full blown isolationist, weaker countries totally fell apart, older and more experienced countries managed to survive. The truth is, with a worldwide zombie outbreak, a lot of people are going to die and be in disbelief for a long time, before we fight back, even if we think we're prepared. ( )

An overall interesting take on the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse. However, I feel it could have been more explored and would have benefited from more civilian accounts.
It's still a great book to discuss with people and raises a lot of questions. Perfect for debating. ( )

'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. Fear is primal. Fear sells. pg 55 (edit)
