World War Z
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. 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.

Generally well done zombie story. However, there are about 3 stories / points that are poor: 1) the blind Japanese elderly man fighting off zombies in the wilderness 2) stealing of the Chinese nuclear submarine with the family members of the crew 3) zombies surviving the depths of the ocean without being crushed by the overwhelming water pressure

Wide assortment of POVs from every level of society and activity. But missed one vital group: librarians, archivists or museum staff; people charged with preserving the knoledge of the past.

The book and story are truly amazing. but a heads up: these CDs are NOT UNABRIDGED. The case says on it " Unabridged Sections" which by its definition means ABRIDGED. This is only noticable when you are following along in the book; skipping a paragraph here, a page then, and adding a few sentences every so often.

Brain Candy!!! - This is the only zombie story everyone needs to hear. It is a tight and entertaining traipse through today's social condition with enough brain candy for everyone regardless of their love or hate for the zombie genre. This incredibly fresh take on an otherwise stale storyline is made even fresher with the addition of a horde of accomplished narrators. If this doesn't get you thinking about the world you live in, you might be a zombie.
