increasingly interesting and insightful into a worI'd that could exist if a dissaster such as this were to happen a window in to how unprepared and in to our lazy comfort zone we really are
I was going to (eventually) read the original World War Z, I listened to a podcast with Max Brooks where he discussed the production of this version of the audio book and I was sold.
Nothing less than a perfect tele-play.
great easy to get into. loved it listened to it twice now. buy buy buy
Great story. Good performances. Not directed or edited well, there are missed edits where audio needed to be trimmed. I wish the readers sounded more natural. Definitely worth the money.
I had the original abridged cast version for ages, and it's been comfort listening (if a program about the near end of the world due to a zombie apocalypse could be considered comforting) for years.
I saw an interview with Max Brooks recently, and was actually looking for something different when I came across this. At first, I thought about just getting the supplementary version, but went ahead and used a credit to get this version.
I am SO glad I did. Having it all seamlessly intertwined made for a whole new appreciation for this wonderful book.
Now if Max would just get around to writing an oral history of how we survived an alien invasion .....
Truly, this edition is something to remember. Such a varied and experienced cast is very rarely seen in fiction, but when it comes together as it does in World War Z, it is something to be revered and remembered. An excellent book that I am glad to have in my collection.
LOVE. THIS. BOOK.
There are so many moments where I was gripping the edge of my seat the entire time. I can;t give a specific moment without ruining anything either.
I can't pick just one, sorry.
Many moments made me think, which I like for a book to do.
If you hated the movie, read this. If you loved the movie, read this. I have to admit, this was my first zombie genre read. I've tried another few books in the genre that don't hold a candle to this one. The "hype" is real in my opinion.
Because the movie looks so awful, I avoided the book like the plague (pun intended). After hearing Max Brooks talk about it on the Nerdest podcast, I realized I was missing out on something special. This is a great book with a great cast and an I nteresting perspective. 30 minutes of this has more intelligence than every season of The Walking Dead put together. It's a hell of a thoughtful achievement, and I really want to know what happened to North Korea.
