Book Review: World War Z: An Oral History of The Zombie War by Max Brooks

World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie WarMax Brooks travels across the United States and around the world interviewing survivors of the Zombie Wars and shareing their devastating stories about the horrors that humankind faced at the hands of the zombies.

 

This book was exactly as the title advertised: An Oral history of the Zombie War.

This is a brilliant example from an author who asked “What if”.  The story was so believable that I had to ask if there had been a zombie apocalypse that I hadn’t known about.

 

I found myself unable to put this book down. I devoured this book in a matter of days and was only disappointed by the knowledge that there was nothing else left for me to read!

I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in reading a believable tale about how the world would actually deal with a zombie apocalypse. This book should be on everyones must read list.

Book Review: Countdown By Jonathan Maberry

CountdownA prequel to Jonathan Maberry’s Joe Ledger series.

Time is too short!

I found this to be a disappointing, mediocre, short story that failed in it’s attempts to hook me into wanting to read any more from this series or by this author.

Reading the dialogue was almost as pleasant as chewing on tin-foil and I found that I couldn’t bring myself to feel anything but boredom and indifference towards the main character.

The plot was the only redeemable aspect of this short work of fiction.

A new kind of global terror in the form of a Zombie outbreak…cool concept…poor delivery.

I may re-visit this series again after reading other works that seam more worth my time.

I can not recommend this book except to those of you who may be fans of zombie apocalypse fiction.
