50 Book Challenge #13: World War Z

The zombie film renaissance has resulted in a fad for zombie books as well. World War Z is an entertaining and sometimes chilling set of interviews with survivors of the twelve year Zombie War. The political critiques are somewhat clumsy and obvious (all of the standard villains are present: Big Pharma, Republicans, the American bourgeoisie), but these are relatively small quibbles compared with the gripping nature of the first-person narratives. If you liked the recent crop of zombie movies, you'll like this book. I spent the day after finishing it fretting about our lack of potential anti-zombie weaponry. Recommended.
