Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Winner, Multi-Voiced Performance, 2014

World War Z: The Complete Edition (Movie Tie-in Edition): An Oral History of the Zombie War is a new version of Max Brooks' episodic zombie novel. The abridged versions of the original stories are now joined with new, unabridged recordings of the episodes that were not included in the original (abridged) version of the audiobook. These additional episodes feature a star-studded cast of narrators to coincide with the upcoming release of the film.

New narrators include Academy Award-winning director Martin Scorsese, Spiderman star Alfred Molina, The Walking Dead creator Frank Darabont, rapper Common, Firefly star Nathan Fillion, Shaun of the Dead's Simon Pegg, and members of the casts of Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, Heroes and more! Max Brooks will be reprising his role as The Interviewer.

The original abridged edition, released in 2006, won an Audie Award for Best Multi-Voiced Performance. Original cast members include Alan Alda, Mark Hamill, Carl & Rob Reiner, and John Turturro.

In this new classic of apocalyptic fiction that feels all too real, the Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. The documentary-style oral history records 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.

Featuring five more hours of previously unrecorded content, this full-cast recording is read by F. Murray Abraham, Alan Alda, René Auberjonois, Becky Ann Baker, Dennis Boutsikaris, Bruce Boxleitner, Max Brooks, Nicki Clyne, Common, Denise Crosby, Frank Darabont, Dean Edwards, Mark Hamill, Nathan Fillion, Maz Jobrani, Frank Kamai, Michelle Kholos, John McElroy, Ade M’Cormack, Alfred Molina, Parminder Nagra, Ajay Naidu, Masi Oka, Steve Park, Kal Penn, Simon Pegg, Jürgen Prochnow, Carl Reiner, Rob Reiner, Henry Rollins, Jeri Ryan, Jay O. Sanders, Martin Scorsese, Paul Sorvino, David Ogden Stiers, Brian Tee, John Turturro, Eamonn Walker, Ric Young, and Waleed Zuaiter.

    "Max brooks as narrator worst part."

    Max Brooks didn't work well as narrator. Others were good, but sometimes couldn't get past how unnatural the whole thing sounded.

    "even better"

    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.

    "Excellent performance!"
    If you could sum up World War Z: The Complete Edition (Movie Tie-in Edition) in three words, what would they be?

    Best performance of any audio book that I've read!!


    What other book might you compare World War Z: The Complete Edition (Movie Tie-in Edition) to and why?

    The book is nothing like the movie.


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

    "First Audio book and I Loved it!"

    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.

    "Great"

    The use of multiple actors really brought the story to life. I previously read the book but had to get audio edition due to the cast. Both the story and acting are superior to the movie.

    "Winner All Around"

    The plot of the book is complex, the various stories interweave with each other, giving the entire narration a universal tone and is incredible to listen to, to travel along with. Each story highlights a different facet of daily life...political, cultural, societal...and although it isn't a 'new' story...it's almost scary how relevant it is.

    *please don't judge it on its movie, it is far better written*

    The casting is stellar, lots of recognizable names and voices to be sure...but each voice...each actor is incredible.
    Max Brooks, who acts as the narrator has the warmest voice and he easily carries you, almost seamlessly from country to country...story to story.

    This book is unlike any other I've listened to, I would and do recommend it.

    "Great performance just wish it was unabridged"

    The voice acting was fantastic! A great break from the standard zombie story format that manages to create a compelling and personal global narrative.
