    William Mandella is a soldier in Earth's elite brigade. As the war against the Taurans sends him from galaxy to galaxy, he learns to use protective body shells and sophisticated weapons. He adapts to the cultures and terrains of distant outposts. But with each month in space, years are passing on Earth. Where will he call home when (and if) the Forever War ends?

    John says: "A classic."
    "Facinating"

    Any additional comments?

    An absolute joy ride through time! The concepts, the machines, and the changing culture were not only facinating, but I think maybe a little prophetic.

    Story
    (3572)

    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.

    What made the experience of listening to World War Z the most enjoyable?

    The collection of different readers made the experience more enjoyable.


    Any additional comments?

    The audio book was very well done, but it is abridged. I did actually read the book before listening to it. It would have been a much more enjoyable experience if the entire book was read. Many good stories were left out so I gave the story only 3 stars.

    Story
    (403)

    Deep in the Nevada desert is the most secure compound in the United States: Area 51. The most chilling experiment of all time is about to begin there. The president doesn't know about it. Just a few scientists and military personnel working for Majestic-12 do, and they are about to make a very big mistake.

    William says: "10 hours of setup for a sequel"
    "Good Story"
