it was amazing
bookshelves: adult, sf

I'm not usually into horror, but this pseudo collection of oral histories of the zombie war is totally engrossing. Unlike many dystopian visions of the future that have 1 central hero, this has interlocking short histories that suck you into how zombies very nearly took over the world. From initial disbelief to smuggling (sometimes infected) refugees to a fake vaccine to cities being overwhelmed to a battle-survivor listing how they lost the battle over the lack of knowledge of how fighting zombies was different than fighting humans, and so on, this truly does build a history of the world's zombie war experience. Believable and quite eerie
