it was amazing

Written by the son of Mel Brooks, one would assume this book is funny. It has its points but it is intriguing and fascinating at the same time. While zombies are the hot topic of future destruction of a civilization, this is another story where the zombies are just a plot device. The real story is the reactions of the people involved.

This is one of the few books where the book on tape is 10x better than the book. A cast including: Alan Alda (Haweye from MASH), Carl Reiner, Mark Hamil (Luke from Star Wars, the Joker in Batman cartoons), John Turturro, Rob Reiner, and many more. The music adds foreboding and a true sense of despair. While listening, you will forget that this is a story and not fact. Has many of the traits that made the original War of the Worlds broadcast frightening, a loose foot in reality. This story references parts of america, using real terminology. With this footing in reality, you will lose track where the story stops and your world begins....
