    The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched first-hand 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 30 million souls, to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet.

    Overall

    I listen to tons of audiobooks and I found this one to be very entertaining and well done. The ensemble cast was vital to making the tale believable. The author's spin on the military, social and economic response to, and recovery from, a worldwide plague of zombies should be adopted as our manual "just in case." Of course, I am a sucker for stories that present a believable, real-world response to a completely fictional scenario. Film-wise it's more "28 Days" than "Land of the Dead."
    My only complaint is the abridged format. Abridged audiobooks should be banned by the United Nations.
