World War Z

Max Brooks RULES. His Zombie Survival guide was great. Bryna and I, thanks to that book, keep Zombie holocaust foremost in our minds when planning our dream home. World War Z is pretty damn cool too. Here's the review I wrote, appearing in this weeks News and Review.

"If you’re reading this, you must have survived. It may seem too soon to look back at what went wrong and what went right as we all struggled with the terror of the dead refusing to stay dead. But now, as we come to terms with the fact that our lives are forever changed and work to stamp out the last of the undead hordes (be they frozen in the arctic or creeping across the ocean floor), the time is right for examining the past--so as to choose a better future. Max Brooks gives us this opportunity. As the author of the first Zombie Survival Guide, Brooks is uniquely qualified to present the stories of World War Z’s veterans. That he was appointed by the United Nations to do so gave him unprecedented access and the credentials to reach even the most reclusive of survivors. Know this: You’re not alone."

When this book comes out in paperback I'll buy a gross and hide 'em under the gideon bibles at hotels. :)
