Zombies

World War Z

World War Z

I just devoured this book, and quite frankly, I'm a little upset that no one here has recommended it to me before now. It is probably, hands down, the best interpretation (written or visual) of a zombie outbreak that I have ever enjoyed; up to and including The Walking Dead. That's right, I said it; I think this book eats The Walking Dead for breakfast and defecates 28 Days Later.

From the greed and capitalism that lead people to capitalize on fear with "miracle drugs" which, due to the psychological fractures of the "Quishies" (or Q's), seemed to work and gave first world nations hope, to the skeptical bureaucracy that enabled an administration to ignore and obfuscate a rising global epidemic, we see a "realistic" insight on how the world could come crashing down.
