World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War

World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War - Max Brooks I saw the movie trailer on Hulu a couple months ago, read the comments and they were all people complaining that the movie looked nothing like the book. I'd just finished reading the Walking Dead novels, so I requested this from the library. For the most part I really liked it even if it took half the book to get into it, my favorite parts were Mets and the Chinese nuclear submarine on the run. My least favorite were the Yonkers long description of military vehicles and weapons and there being no conclusion on what happened in North Korea (my guess is mass suicide). The short stories made it feel less like a novel, it left me with a lot of unanswered questions and missing pieces. I feel like there could be a part two, More Stories From WWZ. Overall a good read even if you aren't a big zombie fan.
