World War Z is almost a misnomer for such a brilliantly conceived and executed book. The Zombie Plague is only a backdrop for some wonderfully well written characterizations of Human Experience under a blanket of shared duress and fear. I would recommend it to schools for purposes of studying the impact of crisis on people and bringing up discussions about ethics, heroism, and nationalism versus globalism. The acting is superlative. One of my favorite books of all time.
Have already read this book twice, and listening to it with a star studded cast was a lot of fun. Presented the short stories in a different tone.
I can't count how many times I've listened to this! One of my favorite books, acted out by a full cast. I love Mark Hamill as Todd Waineo. do yourself a favor and listen to this!
second listening - even better than the first. likely the most impactful piece of media I have consumed during the past few years. the story is, as we all know, fantastic. but the dramatic reading in this edition is amazing, as well. Alan Alda just kills in his performance.
Best performance of any audio book that I've read!!
The book is nothing like the movie.
What makes this audio book so amazing is because of the cast. They kept me interested about how new it felt. I liked how they talked about many other countries and how they tried to fight it. Every new person he talked to made the story fresh everytime. The all star cast read it perfectly to give me the imagination of every single person interviewed. I love this audio book.
