THIS long story got me through some tough times by keeping me entertained. Very imaginative. I love that the characters from different backgrounds often had dynamic personalities, jobs and histories. the author didn't create charicatures or stereotypical versions of people all over the world. Each person felt unique and interesting. I was engaged. the mix of unfamiliar and familiar voices was fun too.
Really well written book about a supposed zombie war. Books describes event from the perspective of a man interviewing other people throughout the events of the wars after it's end. Detailed enough to make it seem plausible and well thought but not so much as though bore you with unnecessary jargon. Voicing is well done with every character coming to life as though they are real. Overall must buy if you are into the genre.
The ensemble cast of celebrities delivers in every way. The detail in which the world collapsed under the weight of the Zombie apocalypse is amazing.
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!
