I know what you re thinking Five stars for this book Why If you ve been following my reviews then you know I tend to stress over how many stars to give a book and I m not one to hand out five star ratings willy nilly I m usually uite cautious when it comes to handing out that all important fifth star I m stingy That being said every once in a while a book that may or may not be amazing comes along and wows me And now you re probably thinking But Penny it s a book about zombies Zombies Disgusting rotting corpses that stumble around looking to sink their teeth into any living thing How how could that sort of thing wow you Are you like smoking crack First things first No I m not smoking crack Everyone knows crack is cheap I much prefer the real thing Now that I ve cleared that up lets move on shall we So World War Z I really enjoyed it which was a surprise because I didn t think I would This book is not something I would ve picked up on my own Had it not been for a couple of really nice Barnes Noble employees who practically shoved this book in my hands while gushing about its supreme awesomeness I definitely wouldn t have purchased it But since they didn t have the book I was looking for Storm Front by Jim Butcher and since I d already been bitten by the zombie bug over a year ago The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan I took a chance and purchased this bookDespite the fact that Max Brooks used to write for SNL and also happens to be Mel Brooks son this book isn t funny nor is it meant to be Max Brooks tells this story through a series of interviews given by survivors of The Great Panic or World War Z the Z stands for Zombie in case you didn t you know put two and two togetherThe interviewees come from different parts of the world and they tell their accounts of what happened to them what they thought when they first heard of what was first referred to as African Rabies what happened when the Great Panic started in their part of the world A lot of these stories are sad andor terrifying but mostly I found them incredibly intriguing Before I go on I need to add that I totally geek out over documentaries and this book were it in movie form would be a documentary I m one that appreciates the method Max Brooks uses to tell this story To me the beginning of this book has to do with the way things are done in this world politics wise than anything else Of course as the book goes on and and governments are collapsing due to the fact that zombies are basically taking over the world we get a good look at human nature during times of crisis I found the whole thing fascinating Hardcore zombie lovers need to know that this isn t a book that follows one set of characters though some interviews have been broken up and so a few characters are featured in this book than once Rather it is one story told by several different people There is continuity in the order in which the stories are told to us and sometimes one survivor s account answers a uestion that was raised by another survivorAll that said there is uite a bit of zombie slaying action Lots of blood and guts and gore We get to learn how best to stop a zombie and let me assure you there are many ways We also learn about newest in improvised zombie killing weaponry and effective warfare techniues to decimate a raging out of control zombie population But seriously I loved reading it everything in this whole entire book Me A church going mother of three Although yeah I m not your typical church going mother of three But still PS I d have finished this book a long time ago had it not been for my husband who kept stealing this book away from me so he could read it too He s really liking it btw UPDATE 111012 About a year ago I bought the audiobook from Audible only to discover after purchasing that it was the abridged version I soon found out that was all they had to offer which was uite disappointing because some of my favorite eyewitness accounts from the book were not included I ve since heard from the World War Z s Facebook page that they are going to make an unabridged version I am unaware of when it will be available for purchase That said I did end up liking the abridged audiobook well enough The performances are pretty top notch To those who have zero sense of humor it must be said I m kidding I don t do any drugs and you

Free read World War Z An Oral History of the Zombie War

Characters ✓ World War Z An Oral History of the Zombie War ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity Max Brooks driven by the urgency of preserving the acid etched first hand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of thirty million souls to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet He recorded 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 World War Z is the result Never before have we had access to a document that so powerfully conveys the depth of fear and horror and a. My full review of this book is longer than Goodreads word count limitations find the entire essay at the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography cclapcentercomAnytime I hear of some funny gimmicky book suddenly becoming popular among the hipster set I always suint my eyes and brace myself for the worst because usually when it comes to such books the worst is all you can expect to find an endless series of fluffy pop culture pieces designed specifically for crafty point of purchase display at your favorite corporate superstore and then a year later to be forgotten by society altogether And so it s been in the last six months as I ve heard and about this book World War Z An Oral History of the Zombie War which supposedly is a hilarious actual oral history about an apocalyptic war with the undead that supposedly almost wiped out the human race as we know it even worse that it had been inspired by an actual gimmicky point of purchase humor book the dreadful Zombie Survival Guide from a few years ago which had been published specifically and only to make a uick buck off the overly specific survival guide craze of the early 2000s And even worse than all this the author of both is Max Brooks as in the son of comedy legend Mel Brooks and if the son of a comedy legend is trawling the literary gutters of gimmicky point of purchase humor books the chances usually are likely that they have nothing of particular interest to saySo what a surprise then to read the book myself this month and realize that it s not a gimmicky throwaway humor book at all but rather a serious and astute look at the next 50 years of global politics using a zombie outbreak as a metaphorical stand in for any of the pervasive challenges facing us as an international culture these days terrorism global warming disease natural disasters showing with the precision of a policy analyst just how profoundly the old way of doing things is set to fail in the near future when some of these challenges finally become crises It is in fact an astoundingly intelligent book as real as any essay by Seth Godin or Malcolm Gladwell basically imagining the debacle of New Orleans multiplied by a million then imagining what would happen if the Bushists were to react to such a thing in the same way and even astounding Brooks posits that maybe the real key to these future challenges lies with the citizens of third world countries in that they are open to greater and faster adaptability than any fat lazy middle class American or European ever could be Oh yeah and it s got face eating zombies too Did I mention the face eating zombiesBecause that s the thing to always remember that this comes from an author who has spent nearly his entire life in the world of comedy and gimmicky projects not only from family connections but also his own job as a staff writer at Saturday Night Live from 2001 to 03 that no matter how smart World War Z gets and it gets awfully smart at points it is still ultimately a fake oral history of an apocalyptic zombie war that supposedly takes place just five or ten years from now starting as these messes often do as a series of isolated outbreaks in remote third world villages And in fact this is where Brooks first starts getting his political digs in right from the first page of the manuscript itself by using the initial spread of the zombie virus to comment on the way such past epidemics like HIV have been dealt with by the corrupt old white males who used to be in charge of things basically by ignoring the issue as long as it wasn t affecting fellow white males then only paying attention after it s become an unstoppable epidemic In Brooks world just like the real one of pre 911 intelligence gathering we see that a few government smarties from around the world really were able to catch the implications of this mysterious new virus while it was still theoretically controllable just that their memos and papers went ignored for political reasons by those actually in charge as well as getting lost in the vast bureaucratic shuffle that the Cold War has created in the Western military industrial complexThat s probably the most pleasurable part of the first half to tell you the truth and by pleasurable I mean witty and humorous in a bleak horrifying schauenfreude kind of way of watching the virus become and of a threat of watching entire cities start to go under because of the zombie epidemic then watching Brooks paint an extremely thinly veiled portrait of how the Bush administration would deal with such a situation and by extension any government ruled by a small cabal of backwards power hungry religious fundamentalists And in this then World War Z suddenly shifts from a critiue about AIDS to a critiue about Ira showing how in both situations the Middle East and zombies that is the real priority of the people currently in charge is to justify all the trillions of dollars spent at traditional weapon manufacturing companies under the old Cold War system companies by the way where all the people in charge have lucrative executive jobs when they re not being the people in charge leading to such ridiculous situations as a full on tank and aircraft charge mostly for the benefit of the lapdog press outlets who are there covering the first grand assault In Ira unfortunately we found that a billion dollars in tanks still can t stop a teenage girl with a bomb strapped to her chest and metaphorically that might be the most chilling scene in the entirety of World War Z as well the press friendly zombie response set up by the Bush led government in New York s Yonkers neighborhood done not for good strategic reasons but rather to show off the billions of dollars in weapons the government had recently acuired leading to a virtual slaughter of all the soldiers and journalists there by the chaotic zombie hoard that eventually arrivesThis then gets us into the first futuristic posit of Brooks in the novel to not have actually happened in real life yet the Great Panic that is when the vast majority of humans suddenly lose faith in whatever government was formerly running their section of the world and where mass anarchy and chaos leads to the accidental and human on human deaths of several hundreds of millions of people And again by detailing a fictional tragedy like a global zombie epidemic and the complete failure of a Bush type administration to adeuately respond to it Brooks is eerily predicting here such real situations like last week s complete meltdown of Bear Stearns the fifth largest investment bank in the entire United States leading many to start wondering for the first time what exactly would happen if the US dollar itself was to experience the same kind of whirlwind collapse a collapse that happens so fast in a single business day in the case of Bear Stearns that no one in the endless red tape of the government itself has time to actually respond to itBrooks answer here is roughly the same one Cormac McCarthy proposed in last year s Pulitzer winning The Road chaos bloodshed violence inhumanity an everyone for themselves mentality from the very people we trusted to lead us in such times of crisis Make no mistake this is a damning and devastating critiue of the corrupt conservatives currently in charge of things a book that uses the detritus of popular culture to masuerade as a funny and gross book about zombies but like the best fantastical literature in history is in fact a prescient look at our current society It s unbelievable in fact how entertaining and engrossing this novel is throughout its middle given how this is usually the part of any book that is the slowest and least interesting here Brooks uses the naturally slow middle of his own story to make the majority of his political points and to get into a really wonky side of global politics that is sure to satisfy all you hardcore policy junkies as well as military fetishistsBecause that s the final thing important to understand about World War Z is that it s a novel with a truly global scope Brooks here takes on not only what such a zombie epidemic would do to our familiar US of A but also how such an epidemic would spread in the village centric rural areas of southeast Asia the infrastructure poor wastelands of Russia and and especially how each society fights the epidemic in slightly different ways some with success than others For example Brooks posits that in such places as India population density is just too high to do much of any good in his fictional world history such countries are basically decimated by such a catastrophe with there basically being few humans even left in India by the time everything is over Other countries though used to picking up as a nation and fleeing for other lands survive the zombie outbreaks uite well those who are already used to being refugees for example see not too much of a difference in their usual lifestyle from this latest turn in events ironically making them the societies most suited for survival in such a world This is opposed to all the clueless middle class Americans in the novel for example who in a panic make for the wilds of northern Canada in the blind hope that the winter weather will freeze the zombies into non action although that turns out to be true poor planning unfortunately results in the deaths of tens of millions of people anyway from hypothermia and starvation and plain ol mass murderAnd this is ultimately what I mean by this book being such a politically astute one because as Micah Marius Brothers #1 inhospitable areas of the planet He recorded 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 World War Z The Border Vixen is the result Never before have we had access to a document that so powerfully conveys the depth of fear and horror and a. My full review of this book The Case of the Blue Violet Murder Most Unladylike Mysteries #35 is longer than Goodreads word count limitations find the entire essay at the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography cclapcentercomAnytime I hear of some funny gimmicky book suddenly becoming popular among the hipster set I always suint my eyes and brace myself for the worst because usually when Killing Lizards it comes to such books the worst The Shadow ueen is all you can expect to find an endless series of fluffy pop culture pieces designed specifically for crafty point of purchase display at your favorite corporate superstore and then a year later to be forgotten by society altogether And so Merry Christmas Paige it s been Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? in the last six months as

gimmicky point of purchase humor book the dreadful Zombie Survival Guide from a few years ago which had been published specifically and only to make a uick buck off the overly specific survival guide craze of the early 2000s And even worse than all this the author of both Florida is Max Brooks as Wreck This Journal Everywhere in the son of comedy legend Mel Brooks and Dominated by the Killer if
