World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War by Max Brooks

What instead of World War III we survived World War Z: the living vs. the un-dead? This is the question that Max Brooks poses in his novel World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War. Brooks travels the far reaches of the globe to interview those who have survived this horrific war. Generally, the interviewees reflect on the war, beginning from how the war originated to how they were able to survive. Many also share the stories of people who were not as fortunate as they. This book got a lot of rave reviews. I found it interesting and utterly believable, but was not as immersed as some. Perhaps I had built up the story from my preconceived notions, therefore, not giving it a fair chance as I otherwise might have. All-in-all, I enjoyed Brooks' presentation of a not-so-unlikely Zombie war and would recommend it for those who enjoy all things zombie-related.
