World War Z

I have been commenting on movies rather frequently on this blog. I have decided to do so about books as well.

World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War is by Max Brooks the author of The Zombie Survival Guide. His mode of storytelling is somewhat unique. What he has preported to do is interview survivors of the Zombie War and recount the tale through the recollections of these individuals. The war was the result of biological event where the Zombie Virus was first seen in China and then spread around the world.

Since anyone bitten by a Zombie became one, there was a rapic spread that took draconian efforts to overcome. By keeping the story personal, the grand scope of events was at times hidden within the local remembrances of each individual.

It was a very interesting book with a unique construction.

Have a good read.
