Well-performed, except for a few that sound like they're reciting the words right off the page for only the second or third time (though even those were of relatively high quality) and one or two accents (especially the first Chinese one).
Definitely counts as "alternate future-history" because a couple currently dead world leaders make non-zombified appearances, but hey, the book was written over ten years ago now.
A full cast with fantastic voice acting and effects, I can't think of anything wrong with this book. This is a great example of how amazing audiobooks can be and how much it can elevate experience from just reading a book.
Long car rides have rekindled my love for 'reading' I like a good history book, thriller and - most importantly - zombie fiction.
If you're looking for the a zombie book with everything in it, you've found it. Unlike the movie, It's more like an anthology of short stories that combine together to form a large look backward at a zombie apocalypse. There's so much good in this book. Multiple powerful performances, gripping stories, and a well-thought-out storyline/world.
It is professionally written and performed. I've already re-listened multiple times.
The outbreak and various strategies to combat it were pretty believable. The author must have put in a good amount of research to accomplish this.
The fact that you're fighting an enemy that you can never scare or dishearten was something that I've never thought of before, and on a full scale war would be a big disadvantage.
First time with any of these narrators and I thought they all did a good job. The only downside was my speakers aren't that great, so it made some of them difficult to hear at times. That's not the fault of the audio book though, just something to be aware of if you have bad speakers.
World War Z is riveting. Keeps you wanting to hear the next little story. Brooks can't help but let a little left political bent bleed in, but his writing is addictive. Some of the actors were a little too wooden, but most did a great job.
The book isnt bad, its just not what I wanted or expected.
I came in knowing nothing about the book and was left a little disappointed. The start of the book is great but after awhile it was starting to bore me with the interviews, I was expecting a story at some point but it never delivered. Its an interesting book but it wasnt what I was hoping it would be.
