World War Z by Max Brooks

The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched first-hand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years, traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of thirty million souls to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet. He recorded the testimony of men, women, and sometimes children who came face-to-face with the living, or at least the undead, hell of that dreadful time. 

World War Z is the result. Never before have we had access to a document that so powerfully conveys the depth of fear and horror, and also the ineradicable spirit of resistance, that gripped human society through the plague years.

Thoroughly enjoyed this! Really. Okay so the ending wasn't great, or rather there is no real way to end a book with this sort of style ... so that was meh. But other than that I really enjoyed it. The style was fun and entertaining. Sheesh it's a scary thought. Am now rather curious what the movie due in June will be like.

Even if you don't like Zombies, read this :)
