From the author of the bestselling, "The Zombie survival guide", "World War Z" is for fans of Zombie literature and film; for lovers of apocalyptic what-if novels; for those obsessed with the state of paranoia in which we all live--it's a new standard in apocalyptic fiction. This brilliant novel imagines a Studs Terkel-like character traveling the world to access the impact of a war between humans and zombies. Though humans have survived "World War Z", many are still haunted by those terrible years. Max Brooks sets out to reveal the people's stories, to tell the true history of what happened. The result is a stunning and all-too believable oral history of a future conflict.
