It started with “Patient Zero,” a Chinese peasant whose bizarre affliction the government soon covered up. Quickly it spread across the globe, from South African slums to American suburbs. By the time the Army was devoured in the Battle of Yonkers, the truth could no longer be denied.
The dead are rising, and they are hungry!
Like a nightmarish hybrid of Stephen King and Ken Burns, writer Max Brooks—author of The Zombie Survival Guide—paints a frighteningly realistic portrait of humanity’s war against the walking dead in World War Z. This terrifying mockumentary-style “oral history” of a zombie apocalypse recounts the horror through the voices of dozens of compelling characters, from scientists to soldiers to everyday survivors.

My son recommended I read this book. I'm so glad I did! I loved the retrospective style Brooks uses in telling the story of the Great Zombie War and how all your questions are not answered. It's a very intriguing book.
i got this book because i really enjoy zombies but it took me 3 days to get through the first 3 chapters. it was like reading stereo instructions. it was so all over the place that it wasn't making any since anymore
So many new ideas were thought of in this one. How would a modern army fight the Dead? How do the dead deal with winter? How about the Dead and large bodies of Water? Well pick this one up and find out!!
When I first bought the book it was because I wanted to fill a special deal and was grasping at straws to find a last book. I made the correct choice. It was better than the books I deliberately chose. All corners of the globe are covered and all the different viewpoints are easy to accept as believable. Do yourself a favor- buy this book.
