5.0 out of 5 stars Not your average Zombie Apocalypse read..., 7 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: World War Z (Kindle Edition)
I'm a big fan of the Apocalypse genre of Sci-Fi writing, and this book has to be one of the most interesting I have read for a while. It is set after a Zombie Apocalypse, with the author interviewing various people in the aftermath. The book is divided into sections that are broadly composed of before World War Z, during World War Z and after World War Z.

It is the interviewees and their individual stories that make this book so compelling. Some of my favourites were the American girl, who fled north with her family whilst she was only a child and had to endure so many hardships along the way. There is the Chinese submarine officer aboard his vessel with him and the crew in isolation of what is happening in the world outside. And there is the astronaut stuck on the International Space Station, doing what he can to ensure that sat navs and communications still work on Earth.

There are so many other stories, each one brilliantly crafted using different dialect depending on who is speaking to the interviewer. Some of them were so good, I hope the author expands some of them in future publications - I could definitely see a World War Z universe of books or comics appearing.

The author clearly did a lot of background work to ensure that each interviewee was consistent with the overall story of the war.

Thoroughly recommended - not just to Zombie fans - but those who enjoy narratives through the eyes of many different people.
