really liked it

I love books, and I love zombies, so World War Z was a no brainer for me, if you can excuse the pun. Max Brooks wrote this book as a series of interviews, ostensibly in order to create a government report detailing the history of the great zombie war.

Because of that, the book actually reads like a collection of zombie short stories. While there is nothing really wrong with that, it tends to take away from some of the momentum in the narrative. Aside from that small problem, there is really nothing negative I can say about this book.

The individual story arcs are all tightly written, and the characters are all well developed with their own motivations and problems. The book was scary, smart and funny; I really couldn't have asked for a better zombie novel, so if you haven't picked it up yet, head out and get a hold of a copy today. You won't be disappointed.
