Book Review: World War Z by Max Brooks

What It's About:

This is a collection of interviews. Max Brooks interviews people who were in the middle of the war and gets their story on what happened in that part of the world during the outbreak of zombies roaming the Earth.

What I thought:

I found this book to be quite intriguing. Some of the interviews were scary, sad, and just... crazy. I enjoyed reading it and I have to say that I'm a big scaredy cat and I was terrified that zombies were going to start jumping through my windows. I can't help but to be a huge zombie fan though. This book didn't exactly have all the terrifying things you'd expect in a zombie book and it doesn't follow along any main characters or anything, but I don't think you'd be disappointed. The interviews are in chronological order, in that they all start out by stating what happened in the beginning and as the book continues, the interviews start to get deeper into what had all happened during the war with zombies. It had more of a documentary feel to it.

There are mentions of new technology in warfare to kill zombies and how they used dogs in the war against zombies by having them sniff out the infection in humans that hadn't reanimated yet. I would hope that if there ever was a zombie outbreak that the leaders of the countries around the world would have read this book to get a good look at how to control the situation before the world would be overrun with the undead!

I would recommend this book to anyone who's a fan of zombies and to anyone who likes documentaries.

Overall, I gave this book a 4 out of 5 stars.
