Book Review: World War Z

I asked for the book World War Z for my birthday based on a reccommendation from Winterblink and Urban Mongral on their Warp Drive Active podcast. I started reading it and had trouble putting it down, it was that good.

Written in the style of a written documentary composed by the author visiting and interviewing survivors of the zombie near-apocalypse a decade or two after the events, it is engrossing in its authentic feel and vivid stories. I was sad when it ended; I wanted more from this fictional world where everything has changed.

Overall, I give it a rare 5 out of 5 stars.

  1. Yeah, me to. It was the homework assignment , and I have to agree. it was compelling enough that I had trouble stopping to go to bed. There were some nice, small touches tat really made it pop. It reminded me of the Halo "documentary" museum (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0TZZlv-biI). Fun, fun book.
