    The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched firsthand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years, traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of thirty million souls to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet. He recorded the testimony of men, women, and sometimes children who came face-to-face with the living - or at least the undead - hell of that dreadful time.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It's a really unique way to present a lot of interesting topics covering war, politics, sociology, history and humanity in general.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I liked listening to the stories of the everyday people surviving the Zombie war


    Any additional comments?

    The only bad point is the really really bad Australian accent of one character.

    Story

    For much of her life, Anne Morrow, the shy daughter of the U.S. ambassador to Mexico, has stood in the shadows of those around her, including her millionaire father and vibrant older sister, who often steals the spotlight. Then Anne, a college senior with hidden literary aspirations, travels to Mexico City to spend Christmas with her family. There she meets Colonel Charles Lindbergh, fresh off his celebrated 1927 solo flight across the Atlantic. Enthralled by Charles’s assurance and fame, Anne is certain the celebrated aviator has scarcely noticed her. But she is wrong.

    Once in a generation a woman comes along who changes everything. Tina Fey is not that woman, but she met that woman once and acted weird around her.

    Before 30 Rock, Mean Girls, and 'Sarah Palin', Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true.

    Where does Bossypants rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The best so far - really kept my interest and was short so a good book to start out with.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hearing about Tina Feys father was really entertaining - what a character!


    What about Tina Fey’s performance did you like?

    She really breathed life into the book and used a variety of voices.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh, a lot.


    Any additional comments?

    I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves Tina Feys work.
