World War Z isnt so much a novel as it is a collection of very personalrecollections of people who have lived through - literally - hell on earth. In away, it reminded me of news footage of these walls you see where, during acivil war, or natural disaster, people go and leave notes for loved ones, hopingsomeone, anyone, will see them. Every time I see something like that, it strikesme as hopeless and desperate, but at the same time noble and uplifting.

This book gave me the same reaction. Ipreordered it from Amazon, received it this morning, and finished it about anhour ago. I wish Id rationed it out a bit, because I didnt want that feeling toend - the feeling of reading the accounts of some of the bravest souls who n ever walked the earth.

But even that is too one-sided; theauthors own opinions and views are clearly dominant. In World War Z, eachindividual vignette is unique and special; from Tibetan smugglers to dirigiblepilots to ex-politicians, each interview has its own distinct voice. In closing, Id just like to say that while George Romero may be the father ofthe zombie genre, Max Brooks may well exceed him. Justmy opinion. One that is hopefully shared by millions of others. Heres hoping they dont butcher it when they make the movie!

You just clipped your first slide! In , he began writing this book when his son, Henry, was born. There had been complications that kept the baby in the NICU for a while. Each night, Brooks left his wife to rest in bed. Then he sat next to his sleeping son all night, writing WWZ in the dark. Meanwhile, at Mount Sinai, his father a Jewish sat up all night with his own ailing wife, who was awaiting her next chemotherapy treatment for uterine cancer.

The zombies are anything that comes into your life, without prejudice, and destroys it. He fully incorporated his love of history and his wandering imagination, creating the book which is the subject of this review. The Book When it comes to the story, it got all its elements covered, well-defined. First of all, the genre is obviously post-apocalyptic fiction. But I would disagree to the inclusion of horror in it.

I think horror fans feel deep down in the pit of their souls, they feel safe, and therefore bored. And therefore they want to be scared. What I think would be the themes for this book are: [1] social commentary, [2] survivalism, and [3] fear.

For the first prevailing theme, it is clear the Brooks used his book to criticize government ineptness, bureaucratic corruption, religious bias and human moral myopia. Second, it is, I think, the most prevalent theme in this book. May it be money, food, water, and shelter, all for the sake of survival. Third, this theme is the driving force of the characters to live.

People selling their products? People selling the fear of you having to love without their products.

Fear of aging, fear of loneliness, fear of poverty, fear of failure. Fear is the most basic emotion we have. Fear is primordial. Fear sells. It really animates the idea of an interview, with a limited knowledge about anyone in anything they are accompanied to. But putting together the testimonies created a very good plot that surely eager, ebullient yet paranoid readers will have fun with connecting the dots of history and politics.

The plot was introduced not as a single storyline but actually in tidbits, leaving you and your rationality to play role in piecing the puzzle of this zombie survival accounts.

But it was presented in an increasing pace of action. In the end, it was emphasized that humanity will never be the same again, as it heads to its resolution, and finishing the story with still a lot of questions coming to mind.

Will there be an instance of another Zombie War like the name the interviewer abhorred from the very beginning — Z War II?

Since the whole zombie populace was never eradicated, to what extent are the people safe? What if the undead were to spring from the ocean like Aphrodite where their number was greatly undisturbed? Will there be another book for this? I could say that the style used was Testimonials.

So the book is basically this.So the book is basically this. 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. Most of the world's leaders argue that they can outlast the zombie plague if they stay in their safe zones while the zombies rot away.

A virus will just continue to spread, infect and consume, no matter what happens. The plague spreads to various nations by human trafficking, refugees and the black market organ trade.
