Nerd Life Book Review: World War Z

I'll make this short and sweet. World War Z by Max Brooks is awesome. Brooks tells the "true" story of our war against the zombies.

Hey! Zombies are serious business.

The premise of the book is that it's written from the point of view of a UN investigator. The story is told through a series of interviews with survivors detailing the events leading up to, during and after the war.

The book is eerily plausible. It's told in such a serious way that I would not be surprised if Earth were overrun by the walking dead TOMORROW. It ties in nicely to today's global issues without ever directly mentioning them. They're there, they happened, but in the wake of the greatest catastrophe in human history, they just don't matter.

All in all, a VERY interesting read. It's quite a bit different from any other piece of fiction I've read before, but I could not put it down. Highly recommended.
