World War Z by Max Brooks
Zombie fans will adore this book, as it’s an account of the recent fictitious zombie war told through first-hand accounts of those who experienced it up close and personal. Those who enjoyed Brooks’ tongue in cheek Zombie Survival Guide (2003) will find this volume a good companion to it. The narrator works for a government commission and has collected accounts from various participants in the devastating zombie war. Each “chapter” of the book is an interview with another person, some of whom are essential, like the Chinese doctor who treated “patient zero,” the first case of zombie infection. Other chapter feature the stories of lesser-known people, but whose perspective fleshes (pardon the pun) out the whole picture for the readers.
