This book is an amazingly frightening feat of research and imagination. The author really captured the concept and feel of oral history, and the idea that the reader already experienced this world-wide Zombie war and knows the results - this is just survivors' individual stories from around the world in their own voices as to how they and their countries managed through the near-apocalypse. I love that it's not overly done, not overly explained. Some things are just alluded to. Its approach is so serious and straight-forward. So engrossing and so (oddly) enjoyable.
