Love love love the production of this book. Please make more audio books with such awesome production. N
The voice acting was fantastic! A great break from the standard zombie story format that manages to create a compelling and personal global narrative.
I do love this book. I have listened to it several times and I'm sure I'll listen to it several times more. The complete edition is also very much worth the purchase, even if you already have the earlier abridged version. Some of the added stories are referenced in stories that were included in the abridged version.
I did read this as a hard copy but enjoy the audio book much more. the cast does a great job of bring the story to life.
After having scene the movie, and having listened to the majority of the abridged audio book I couldn't resist diving into this edition. it was worth every minute. a wonderful narration job was done by the full cast, and the writing style felt seamless and natural.
The book is way better then the movie. So far, I've listened to WWZ 3 times. The story really pulls you in and for a zombie/ sci-fi book, it is relatively believable. Max Brooks obviously did an enormous amount of research into the technical aspects of the book (military technology, tactics and terminology, science, sociological and psychological, etc aspects of the book
The only thing I didn't like about the book is that it it had to end.
I absolutely adored this book on my crosscountry road trip. Nothing like the movie if that is what you are expecting. All the different voices and characters really make this a stellar story. I enjoyed how much effort was put into this fascinating apocalypse style narrative.
I loved how it is being told by first hand accounts. It personifies the actual virus and makes for an even better experience. The only zombie related media that even comes close to this is the "We're Alive" podcast!
