I want to write a really good review for this book but I'm not actually going to.

This is a more high brow zombie book, or at least midlevel. there is medical terminology (one review says way too much, one review says way too little, so fuck it's a little bit goldilocks). The pictures are beautiful. The U.N. resolution at the end is as far as I can tell (which isn't any further than model u.n.) written correctly. It addressing really interesting questions like "are zombies human?" a question no other zombie novel has taken as a starting point.

the book isn't a zombies are attacking ahhhh scary apocalypse book. You have to be able to buy into the premise that if there were zombies the un would start research to find the pathogen, and the reader of these documents is going to a un meeting. The U.N is not about exciting horror drama. It's about political theory.

But I think this is a take on zombies that potentially elevates them a lot.
