World War Z

World War Z : An Oral History by Max Brooks

So the zombie apocalypse has come and gone and our narrator was given the job by world leaders to compile information about the event and write a report.  Once the report, full of facts, numbers and statistics is published, the narrator decides to publish the interviews as a book so that the world can read about the different personal experiences of those up-close to the action.

This book is sort of written in documentary form.  There is a reason the movie version differed from the book, it would have been a boring movie if it was done just like the book.  The book isn't boring though.  The book paints a big picture by giving you small glimpses into the lives and experiences of different individuals.

I really enjoyed this book and I recommend it to anyone interested in this type of novel.
