Flip Through Review: World War Z by Max Brooks

With all the recent hype around zombie/infected video games, I thought it was about time I did a review on one of my favorite zombie novels.

If you're a fan of all things zombie, you'll lose yourself in this immersing narrative that chronicles the onset, the horror of, and the aftermath following a worldwide war against the living dead. But even if you aren't a zombie fan, you'll enjoy the stories of survival, humanity, and endurance. World War Z reads like the transcript of an oral history on the Zombie War, as remembered by its survivors. Each chapter presents the story of a different part of the war, through the voice of a different survivor; making it a great book to grab even if you have a few minutes to read. The book is a great read and brings a level of engagement well above what most would expect from a story about the shambling undead masses.

You can find a preview of the book, some audio excepts of survivor interviews, and podcasts of more survivor interviews at the World War Z website.
