If you already have the newest version of World War Z, DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK. It is a selection of stories that I guess were added to the new version. So basically I bought a collection of short stories that were already included in the version of World War Z that I had, not new "lost files". I feel ripped off.
Had I known this was just a repeat of several stories from the full version of World War Z, I wouldn't have bought it. I would only give it 5 stars had I not bought it!
Repeat stories from the full version.
The story synopsis should have told us that this was the same stories - Nothing new here folks, move along -
This is nothing more than 1/2 the original book. It's a rip off!
This book is half the material from the original book in a different order. It's an blatant attempt to generate additional royalties from the same original material.
So much better than "Walking Dead" as you get a planetary perspective of stories taking place all over the Earth and Space above it.
Get the Complete Edition, this one is only an abridged version and misses some details.
Amazing production of more stories of the zombie war not included in the initial abridged WWZ audio book. Really brings the world alive. voice acting is, like the original, superb. you won't regret listening. I can't wait for the HBO miniseries! ;)
My poir grade is on Audible itself. The story is pretty good. I spent a credit on this, not realizing that it was already part of a book I had bought previously. Would like my credit back, but I am aware the mistake was my fault. I hope in the future books are better labeled.
