I read this book right after it came out years ago and have gifted probably a dozen or more copies to friends along with the statement of: "No, really... it isn't some cheesy horror story". But I felt I should re-read it after I gave my wife a copy to read some months back... (by the way, she is VERY anti-horror, anti-science fiction, etc.. so it took some convincing for her to pick it up)...
...and she ended up loving it!
She, (like most of the folks I've given it to), said that she kept wanting to write things down that were in the book because they were so insightful or just plain interesting... (THIS from a cheesy "Zombie Book"?... you're kidding me...). She completely fell into the world that was created by the author with little effort needed to suspend disbelief.
Ok... enough of the self-absorbed pontificating... Here is the low down on this book if you are trying to decide to buy it:
Just go ahead and buy it.
If you are even considering it, you won't be disappointed... and if you are thinking of giving it as a gift to someone that "may" like "that kind of book"... definitely do it... they (and you) will be pleasantly surprised.
Oh... and one last thing that I probably don't need to tell you... DON'T judge it by the movie... the movie was "not bad" despite the fact that it was almost totally unrelated to the book... (I know, not much of a surprise there, eh?)... but, as is the norm for blockbusters with costly effects and actors... it was little more than a one-dimensional series of scenes stitched together to create emotional reactions... (which it did fairly well).
But, believe me, this book has MUCH more depth in every way possible... characters, plots, supporting science, you name it... (and you won't have the ardent desire to hold down Brad Pitt and wash his hair... (ick)... ;-)
If zombie apocalypse movies never made sense to you, this will be a refreshing change of pace. Everything has been well thought out and "documented" in this recount of zombie war (World War Z).
Don't want to spoil the read, so go grab a copy!
