Okay, maybe not like favorite of all time, but it’s right up there. So what is it?
World War Z!
I’m not even completely done with it yet, but I have been totally blown away with what I’ve seen so far. I’ve never been a big zombie fan, but the gravity and emotional weight that Max Brooks gives to the stories of the Zombie War is just incredible. And even though it’s told under the pretense of being an after-the-fact oral history, I’ve been amazed at how scary it can actually be.
Oh, and according to the Risk Calculator on the website, I would have had a 34% chance of surviving the war, had it actually happened.
Anybody else read this and care to comment?
