Review: World War Z – Max Brooks

Synopsis
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 from those apocalyptic years, 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.

Its been a while since I’ve read a book that is so well written that I believe that its going on around or I’m supposed to see it on TV. A Zombie pandemic has affected the world and Max Brooks took it upon himself to tell the story of every person across the world in full detail, and damn this book seems so real. Its got a lot of humor and horror thrown into the mix that you believe the person telling the story, Max acts as the interviewer asking people questions and you hear there stories from China, Japan, India, Brazil, USA, South Africa, Antartica, Russia, and so many other places across the globe each person is his own character and goes into full detail of what was going on with them and how they survived the throng of zombies and sometimes in the millions. Max Brooks has gone into so much detail of each of the cultures or people that he is describing when speaking in the interview that you honestly believe it to be real, that there is a zombie war across the globe, there are times that I wouldn’t want to put down the book, and I wake up the next morning switching on CNN expecting to see news reels about Zombie and how they are combating them, the books is this good and that entertaining that anyone would love it.

  1. amazing book ! Max Brooks is a brilliant sarcastic writer and i highly recommened ” The Zombie Survival Guide ” by Max Brooks also.

  2. @Crescendoq8 – I checked it out but it reads more like a manual then a story like World War Z, I think that WWZ is better then the Zombie Survival Guide

  3. Not my thing… but it’s really wonderful to sink in a good book now and then. I’m currently reading ‘What the Dog Saw’ by M Gladwell… I think I’m finally getting into it.

  4. @Bu Yousef – Your right its always good to get into a good book! This one grabbed me from the start, it reads like a news and real life then a fiction book!
