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.

    "If you're going to listen to the book, pick this"
    Where does World War Z: The Complete Edition (Movie Tie-in Edition) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is definitely up there. What truly makes this audiobook one of the better ones has to be the performance. With an all-star cast, the story just comes to life. The story itself is well written too, but the performance is what makes this audiobook so fantastic.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The narrators were my favorite part about this experience.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    Mark Hamill as Todd Wainio was my favorite. His voice and character were so convincing. Common as Darnell Hackworth was a close second. Common has a lovely voice, and his character was my favorite.


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

    No extreme reaction, but it was enjoyable and it did stir up emotions, just nothing extreme.


    Any additional comments?

    If you want to read World War Z, this version is the way to go!

    "F-Ing amazing. Listen to this all day"

    Did you hate that fucking movie? Did you hate sick people being the antithesis to zombies? Then listen to this audiobook! It has nothing to do with that movie!

    Instead, it's a harrowing tale told by the accounts of people all over the globe, voiced by an amazing cast.

    Srsly, f that movie and buy this audiobook, you will not regret it!

    "All star cast, all star performance."

    One of the best narrated books I've ever listened to. Each actor plays their character well, actually getting the tones, sarcasm, or whatever feeling they're trying to portray. So many other narrators fall into a monotone, but these sound like people recounting actual experiences. I consider this a must-hear for all zombie fans.

    Kinda stupid to brand it as the movie tie-in, though. The movie had nothing to do with this book.
