World War Z

I discovered a great work of literature. The book is called World War Z by Max Brooks.

It is a book essentially of short stories written by the author in the form of interviews. Each interview is from a survivor of the Zombie Apocalypse. Now I normally don't go for much in the way of Zombies except for games. I don't like movies like "Dawn of the Dead" etc.

But this book.... makes you feel like it was a true event. That there actually had been a period in our history where a plague caused bodies to re-animate and attempted to exterminate man kind.

I highly recommend it, and if they make a movie of it, I'll definitely see it.

An FYI, the audio book is a bridged version of unabridged accounts. I.E. not all the interviews are included in the audio book that are in the dead tree variant. Which is really sad. There are some really good interviews that were left out.
