I haven’t had much free time lately but this weekend I was able to knock out one of the books on my reading list: World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War.

Written by Max Brooks, who also authored The Zombie Survival Guide, it tells the story of a [world wide zombie apocalypse] via a collection of short, first person interviews recorded by survivors 10 years after the initial outbreak of a deadly virus. The virus is transmitted via bodily fluids (100% contagious) and not only kills the host but re-animates the body turning them into flesh-eating predators. Mr. Brooks gives keen insight on possible global reactions to a deadly pandemic that threatens humanity with extinction.

It’s a fast read and rather entertaining.
