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.

I'm generally not zombie guy I have a lot of problems with The science of African rabies or whatever it is you wish to call it. However this book is exceptional speculative fiction exploring what would happen to various sectors of society under the conditions of it nearly unkillable foe.
This is one of the best novels of the 21st century! It is the best zombie novel, the best audio book I have found, and a joy to read or listen to. The full cast is simply amazing and full of talented stars. Don't expect this to be anything like the movie.
The narrators are very good at scaring you.
I have no clue.
Other than scaring everything in you out of you, no.
don't read this book if you are scared of zombies.
This book is fantastic, they took a thing like the zombie apocalypse and made it seem real. One one part when they are talking about using dogs to help soldiers and the relationship between them seemed so real. In the section where the general talks about the need for blue collar workers and how this world didn't need stock brokers was amazing. This book took things and made them seem real.
increasingly interesting and insightful into a worI'd that could exist if a dissaster such as this were to happen a window in to how unprepared and in to our lazy comfort zone we really are
I was going to (eventually) read the original World War Z, I listened to a podcast with Max Brooks where he discussed the production of this version of the audio book and I was sold.
Nothing less than a perfect tele-play.
great easy to get into. loved it listened to it twice now. buy buy buy
Great story. Good performances. Not directed or edited well, there are missed edits where audio needed to be trimmed. I wish the readers sounded more natural. Definitely worth the money.
