Review: World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War

World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie WarWorld War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War by Max Brooks
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a fascinating novel that takes itself seriously, reporting the state of the world after a zombie outbreak. The only thing it has in common with the film is the title, nothing else! The plot of the film was completely made up out of nowhere, with no relation whatsoever to the book. That being said, the novel is a bit slow and dry in places, but it’s well written and an interesting read for a genre fan. And, curious trivia: the author, Max Brooks, is the son of Mel Brooks.
