Bibliophilia: World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War – Max Brooks

I read this book when it came out, and thought it was great. Liked the structure of it, interviews with eye witnesses and participants long after this war for the survival of humanity was over.

Anyway, with the movie that uses the same title being out, and my annoyance that this Brad Pitt publicity vehicle had little resemblance to it, I decided to read it again.

The part I found most chilling was the aspect of command and control structures and logistical systems and their ability to be destroyed, and how pivotal that is to a military engagement. With zombies, there is no C&C or supply system to destroy.

  1. While I enjoyed the book quite a bit--I too have refused to see the movie. I just can't bring myself to do it. *sigh*
