Ul f zombie books not enough to make myself an expert but certainly enough to have some background Yedek Parça on the loref a zombie apocalypse WTH Now Brooks didn t just make this term up It is a term from WW2 A uisling is a person who collaborates with an enemy ccupying force The word riginates from the Norwegian war time leader Vidkun uisling who headed a domestic Nazi collaborationist regime during the Second World War The minds f survivors I m sure snapped in all kinds f strange and wonderful and terrifying ways but unfortunately pretending to be a zombie was a uick way to find yourselfwelldead First any reasonably sane human who notices you lurching toward them performing your very best mimicry f the undead will smash your brain Second you don t blend with the zombies They know you are alive You become a zombie delightPeople also just went to sleep perfectly healthy and didn t wake up This was called ADS short for Asymptomatic Demise Syndrome r Apocalyptic Despair Syndrome It killed as many people in those early stalemate months as hunger disease interhuman violence Lampes antiques du Golfe de Fos.

situations The body just reaches a point where the brain decides to just shut down the power to the spacecraft and let the mind drift away RIPPeople will put up with a lot as long as there is hope that someday their situation will improve Babies die when they are not held People die when things become hopeless Brooks also told stories about zombies underwater WTH Yeah people reanimated as the living dead The Billionaire's Blackmailed Bride on ships and eventually managed to fallff the ship in the water It wasn t unusual for zombies to just walk ut f the water La La Rose onto beachesr grab divers r attack fishermen in boats Somehow they are scary underwater than n land It gives me the shivers just thinking about it I m having a Jaws flashback During and after WWZ people had to relearn things that Bruises and Hickies, Stitches and Scars our grandparents and great grandparents knew A chimney sweep I help keep my neighbors warm he said proudlyA cobbler You see those shoes I made them A shepherd That sweater that s my sheep s wool A gardenerfarmer Like that corn My garden That was the upshotf a localized system It gave people the pportunity to see the fruits f their labor it gave them a sense Anne Boleyn and Me: The Diary of Elinor Valjean, London, 1525-1536 of individual pride to know they were making a clear concrete contribution to victory and it gave me a wonderful feeling that I was partf that I needed that feeling It So I ve seen the movie several times when it was n TV and I have to say that I even watched a scene r two a couple Thug Kitchen Party Grub: For Social Motherf*ckers of dozen timesn Youtube Yes the action and visuals are fantastic Okay except the ne where the guy tears his wn tooth yuckBut after reading the comments where people were angry at the movie saying that it does not hold a candle to the book I knew I had to read it And yes I do agree that the Transforming Mission: Paradigm Shifts in Theology of Mission only things the movie took from the book were the zombies and Israel building a wall Oh and the titleRight away I was very surprised by the formatf this book it was not all what I was expecting And the I think about it I believe it would be better if I picked up an audiobook instead f a book Yeah shocking I never thought I would say such a thing Every interview is done with a different person so soon I stopped paying attention to their names so when they again appeared later in the book I had a hard time connecting them with their previous chapters Also like ne third into the book I got stuck after several boring chapters where I seriously considered DNFing this book but then I pushed through and yes it was worth it I loved that we got to see how so many different parts Punk Princesses of the world battled with the zombies The different approaches what do to the countries did they go all savage Did they bomb theirwn people Did they just lose all control That was fantastic to watchAnd surprisingly this book made me even laugh I just loved the boy who almost missed the zombies because he was focused The Forged Night With A Sadistic Serviceman Vol.1 (TL Manga): Cry with your lovely voice on his computer I did not expect that That s thene thing you can always depend Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know on as we re fightingn war we re always preparing for the next neI did not very much grasp how they were suddenly able to fight the zombies when they previously failed with much better euipment but alright But I have to say that zombie cleaning is funny to imagine Especially f those underwater I bet it will be fun if a zombie managed to get stuck in the Mariana Trench However the scene I was sort Bruiser: A True Story About a Special Cat of hoped for was post war when some scientists have a zombie in a lab for studying that would be fantastic I honestly would love to see some experimentsn these creatures The book stated that it seemed that the state Toward the Gleam of the zombies deteriorated but I wonder what would happen if they maybe starved for years So many possibilities What sortf surprised me is that I expected that when the humans would go so close to extinction that the environment would get better no factories running no The Kama Sutra of Vatsyayana in Pop-up one is dumping anything in the water etc but it wastherwise and it sort Bite A Little Harder (Wolf Submission Book 5) of made sense There had to be so many fires it s terrifying to imagine But I wonder about the impactf all those nukes usedAnd that s another thing I wish was different the last part was sort f jumping from character to character for short conclusions but I would love to see about the brand new world Honestly I think I would be able to read a book dedicated to each country Especially Russia Iceland and Israel would be interesting Also I wish we really knew what happened in North Korea I also wonder about Patient Zero because when the doctor in China informed his friend they knew what was going n the military seemed ready for what was happening there That does not seem like the first caseOverall the book is 355 for me I think I will get the audiobook to see if I ll like that format better This book was initially recommended to me by several people in the The Untimely Deaths of Alex Wayfare office and since I love zombies and apocalyptic themes well I was pretty excited Unfortunately it did not live up to my expectations and I struggled to finish it I m going to write this review under the assumption that the reader has some inkling about the story and how it s constructedThere are two issues that killed it for me Firstly mostf the characters had the same Operation Mom: How I got my Mother and Life and a Man or similar voice Of course this is partly to do with the fact that the voices allriginate from the mind f ne individual the author Also the journalisticinterview approach to constructing the narrative limits how much color the author can impart n any given character and A is inherently dry no matter how exciting the events described are intended to be This is a minor gripe though and ne that can be lived withA serious complaint however is that this book can be seen as completely lacking any and all dramatic tension that a person The Trusty Knaves or me expects from a survival horror themed story The primary draw the zombie war and how humanity survived is such a compelling hook but it s toldby the people who survived As in past tense as in we are left with their impressionsf things that happened to them Basically then the story devolves into an excercise in basic exposition And then this happened and then that happened And so the author is free to weave his story without any pesky things like character development story arcs plotting and personal details that are shown and not told It seems to me like an extraordinarily easy maybe even lazy way to tell a story One Aces and Knaves other minor point For me accountsf survival when the victims are real have meaning that allows them to transcend the limitations described above WW2 Holocaust survivors accounts for example can take your breath away The difference is f course that they were real events that happened to real people Since all the classic storytelling elements are dispensed with we re basically left with the author s views n New Dawn our current world particularly and naturally the wars andur cultures However it s my view that there are dozens Shinjuku Shark 2: The Poison Ape of books written about these subjects already books that haven t needed to sex the discussion up with a hordef shambling undead So in summary if I m going to read an apocalyptic recounting f the end f civilization as we know it I want to read about people in real time struggling to survive not being told how people surivived after it was Unpacking Queer Politics: A Lesbian Feminist Perspective over I realize though that it s all a matterf taste as I know half a dozen people whose views I respect that absolutely loved this book D 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 In Praise of Adya Kali: Approaching the Primordial Dark Goddess Through the Song of Her Hundred Names over how many stars to give a book and I m notne to hand ut five star ratings willy nilly I m usually uite cautious when it comes to handing ut that all important fifth star I m stingy That being said every How the Gringos Stole Tequila: The Modern Age of Mexico's Most Traditional Spirit once in a while a book that mayr 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 The Leper Window 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 moven 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 Phooey! on mywn Had it not been for a couple f 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 ver a year ago The Forest A Possibility of Whales 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 seriesf interviews given by survivors A Collection of Chirurgical Tracts of The Great Panicr 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 The London Affair of the world and they tell their accountsf what happened to them what they thought when they first

these personal accounts reuires a degree One Way Ticket to London of couragen the part The Complete Book of Elves of the reader but the effort is invaluable because as Mr Brooks says in his introduction By excluding the human factor aren't we risking the kindf personal detachment from history that may heaven forbid lead us Family Talk one day to repeat it And in the end isn't the human factor thenly true difference between us and the enemy we now refer to as 'the living dead' Note Some f the numerical and factual material contained in this edition was previously published under the

are the legal definition f intestate We have not yet made any preparations for ur death and we nly have life insurancehouse insurance because his mother Careless organized the whole this book is about zombies the same way the bible is about god they are mostly background actors who are the reasonther characters do what they do and Competing for the Cup occasionally they will rarrrr in and kill a bunchf people because they cant help it but mostly they are an invisible presence always to be feared but never given a voice this whole book takes place after the zombies have already destroyed most Fat Land of the world and is a collectionf the testimonials f hundreds f different characters detailing their experiences with the zombie Low Life: Lures and Snares of Old New York outbreak and how they have survived becausef this there arent really any action scenes r any immediate terror this book is about politics and global concerns and human nature and dissatisfaction with the way the government handles natural disasters and im gonna say it im gonna say it the zeitge My full review f this book is longer than Goodreads word count limitations find the entire essay at the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography cclapcentercomAnytime I hear Backstage Passes: Life on the Wild Side with David Bowie 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 seriesf fluffy pop culture pieces designed specifically for crafty point f 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 f the Zombie War which supposedly is a hilarious actual Elmer oral history about an apocalyptic war with the undead that supposedly almost wipedut the human race as we know it even worse that it had been inspired by an actual gimmicky point The Red Stockade of purchase humor book the dreadful Zombie Survival Guide from a few years ago which had been published specifically andnly to make a uick buck ff the verly specific survival guide craze f the early 2000s And even worse than all this the author f both is Max Brooks as in the son f comedy legend Mel Brooks and if the son f a comedy legend is trawling the literary gutters The Something of gimmicky pointf purchase humor books the chances usually are likely that they have nothing f 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 f global politics using a zombie utbreak as a metaphorical stand in for any f the pervasive challenges facing us as an international culture these days terrorism global warming disease natural disasters showing with the precision A Killing Tide of a policy analyst just how profoundly theld way Shivers: four in one: The Enchanted Attic/A Ghastly Shade of Green/The Locked Room - The Awful Apple Orchard of doing things is set to fail in the near future when somef these challenges finally become crises It is in fact an astoundingly intelligent book as real as any essay by Seth Godin L'Oracle de votre subconscient : I-Ching, Le Livre des transformations or Malcolm Gladwell basically imagining the debaclef 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 Weirdos of the Universe, Unite! of third world countries in that they arepen to greater and faster adaptability than any fat lazy middle class American Les Naufrags d'Ythaq T03 : Le soupir des toiles 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 worldf comedy and gimmicky projects not The Royal Joust only from family connections but also hiswn 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 American Maharajah oral historyf an apocalyptic zombie war that supposedly takes place just five r ten years from now starting as these messes ften do as a series f isolated utbreaks in remote third world villages And in fact this is where Brooks first starts getting his political digs in right from the first page Squeamish About Sushi: And other Food Adventures in Japan of the manuscript itself by using the initial spreadf the zombie virus to comment n the way such past epidemics like HIV have been dealt with by the corrupt ld white males who used to be in charge The Quarterback's Crush of things basically by ignoring the issue as long as it wasn t affecting fellow white males thennly paying attention after it s become an unstoppable epidemic In Brooks world just like the real ne f pre 911 intelligence gathering we see that a few government smarties from around the world really were able to catch the implications f 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 f the first half to tell you the truth and by pleasurable I mean witty and humorous in a bleak horrifying schauenfreude kind Achtung! Cthulhu of wayf watching the virus become and Infamy of a threatf watching entire cities start to go under because General P.T.G. Beauregard of the zombie epidemic then watching Brooks paint an extremely thinly veiled portraitf how the Bush administration would deal with such a situation and by extension any government ruled by a small cabal My Wishful Thinking 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 priorityf the people currently in charge is to justify all the trillions The Boy and the Blue Moon of dollars spent at traditional weapon manufacturing companies under theld 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 n tank and aircraft charge mostly for the benefit f the The book The Screwball Comedy Films: A History and Filmography, 1934-1942 of war thene we ve been writing since Father Tom Padilla: Mark of the Demon Priest one ape slapped another was completely useless in this situation We had to write a newne from scratch With most apocalyptic situations I think the hardest part to deal with is that there are no wrong decisions r right decisions There are simply too many variables to consider if your ultimate goal is to survive The most meticulously planned strategies can still result in failure You make the best decisions you can and then hope for a bit f luck Should we barricade urselves hoping to be saved r go North hoping the zombies will eventually become popsicles when winter hits Are we safer in the underground tunnels Eat Vegan on $4.00 a Day of Parisr n a cruise ship r living in the woods by Pantyhose Professionals (Pantyhose Diaries Book 2) ourselves Whatever decision you make you must think long game and short game The short game the immediate concerns involve food water and shelter The short and long game both come into play when trying to figureut how to avoid becoming zombie chow Once you survive the first wave f contagion then whatThis book is written as an investigative report collecting all the experiences f survivors from around the world Different cultures reacted differently to the apocalypse Some were successful than Masterchef Junior Cookbook: Bold Recipes and Essential Techniques to Inspire Young Cooks others The learning curve unfortunately has to be short with apocalyptic situations especially if the hope is to actually salvage civilisation The lights gout and many Black Macho and the Myth of the Superwoman of the comforts we ve become accustomed to are gone instantly and the possessions that have come to define us such as electronic devices suddenly become useless If the whole ideaf a zombie apocalypse is too wild a concept for you to grasp you might be relieved that for the most part the zombies are really just part Study of Organ Inferiority and Its Psychical Compensation; A Contribution to Clinical Medicine - Scholar's Choice Edition of the background What Max Brooks is really dealing with goes well beyond the conceptf zombies and focuses Heaven Next Stop on how people survived the collapsef civilisation He could have used microbes r conventional war r a devastating meteorite hitting the earth r any f the Bases Loaded other fascinating concepts that people have come up with as ways to end the world It reads like booksf a similar nature that collect the stories Have A Good Night, Volume 1 of people who survived World War Two The scope is huge and impressive Brooks addresses aspects about a zombie apocalypse that I have never thought about before uislings Yeah you know the people that went nutballs and started acting like zombies Ok I ve read a handf. The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity Max Brooks driven by the urgencyf preserving the acid etched first hand experiences f the survivors from those apocalyptic years traveled across the United States f America and throughout the world from decimated cities that nce teemed with upwards f thirty million souls to the most remote and inhospitable areas When You Lose Your Job of the planet He recorded the testimonyf men women and sometimes children who came face to face with the living r at least the undead hell f that dreadful time World War Z is the result Never before have we had access to a document that so powerfully conveys the depth Isabel the Queen: Life and Times of fear and horror and also the ineradicable spiritf resistance that gripped human society through the plague years Ranging from the now infamous village Fantastic Post Office 03 of New Dachang in the United Federationf China where the epidemiological trail began with the twelve year Tim Crouch old Patient Zero to the unnamed northern forests where untold numbers sought a terrible and temporary refuge in the cold to the United Statesf Southern Africa where the Redeker Plan provided hope for humanity at an unspeakable price to the west f the Rockies redoubt where the North American tide finally started.
Hen the Great Panic started in their part f the world A lot Drawing the Human Head of these stories are sad andor terrifying but mostly I found them incredibly intriguing Before I gon I need to add that I totally geek ut ver documentaries and this book were it in movie form would be a documentary I m DIY Projects for the Self-Sufficient Homeowner: 25 Ways to Build a Self-Reliant Lifestyle one that appreciates the method Max Brooks uses to tell this story To me the beginningf 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 n and and governments are collapsing due to the fact that zombies are basically taking ver the world we get a good look at human nature during times f crisis I found the whole thing fascinating Hardcore zombie lovers need to know that this isn t a book that follows ne set Dead Man Riding (Nell Bray, of characters though some interviews have been broken up and so a few characters are featured in this book thannce Rather it is ne story told by several different people There is continuity in the rder in which the stories are told to us and sometimes ne survivor s account answers a uestion that was raised by another survivorAll that said there is uite a bit f zombie slaying action Lots Pontius Pilate 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 ragingut Livin de Life of control zombie population But seriously I loved reading it everything in this whole entire book Me A church going motherf three Although yeah I m not your typical church going mother Aeralis 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 Audiblenly to discover after purchasing that it was the abridged version I soon found Be CentsAble: How to Cut Your Household Budget in Half out that was all they had toffer which was uite disappointing because some Academic Inbreeding and Mobility in Higher Education: Global Perspectives 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 unawaref 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 Radio Crackling, Radio Gone of humor it must be said I m kidding I don t do any drugs and you need to chill I just can t getn this bandwagon The pseudo government reports the book is written in handicap it in many ways First there are no protagonists to grow with no story arc no climax etc You know what s going to happen from day The Legend of Joaquin Murrieta: California's Gold Rush Bandit one there was a world crisis involving zombies and at least some people live to tell the tale The sure knowledgef the Limey Gumshoe outcome deflates any tension and book feels flacid The pseudo scientific jargon is a poor imitation my sister a nurse tossed aside Brooksther Zombie manfesto in disgust within the first few pages and this Maritime Academy Graduate: Memoir Of A Third Mate one fairs no betterand there are far too many emotional pauses and descriptive introductions for what amounts to an addendum to a government studyf events The thing that put me ver the edge with this book is the inconsistency ne chapter has a boy with bloody knuckles sliding his hands about in zombie goo and remaining uninfected and in the next chapter there is an expression Trouble Looking for a Place to Happen of gratitutde that none exposed to detrius from a headshot has Dressed for Thrills: 100 Years of Halloween Costumes and Masquerade open wounds to be infected through What editor let that get by On topf that racial national stereotypes abound and are crude and unappealing Brooks is Harcourt School Publishers Collections obviously a big fanf Israel as they are the heroes From Paella to Porridge: A Farewell to Mallorca and a Scottish Adventure of the day even going so far as to selflessly save Palestinian refugees yeah rightand remnantsf South Africa s apartheid system are given a reprieve due to their pragmatism Russians are wacky comrades Chinamen are inscrutable and Americans are cowboys weakened by education and consumerism UghI won t recommend this book to anyone even a die hard zombie fan lest World War Z ruin the genre for them forever Update See end On Toby's Terms of review for movie reviewI ve broken my cardinal rule for reading books just before the movie comesut This rule I ve alluded to is the following I don t read the book directly before the movie at least 1 year before r it must be read after r just wait Max Lerner: Pilgrim in the Promised Land on the movies The reason for this is that I want to enjoy the story through both mediums and if you read the book just before the movie you ve set yourself up to be a critic analyzing everything and complaining about every detail that s inevitably leftut but which is ften than not necessary for the mediumIf you read the book at least a year before at least with my shoddy memory the movie becomes a happy time f fond remembrances Oh yeah I remember that part so cool Yay Happy In this instance I hear the movie doesn t uite follow the book exactly and what else can that mean than that it s a typical zombie movie I don t think I ve ruined much hereYou know it could have been partly because Indiscretion of all the hype but I didn t love this book I didn t hate it either which makes these the hardest reviews to write but I think I have a few ideas why World War Z just didn t work all that well for meI m studying for the bar at the moment so you get an extremely wellrganized review at least with headings aplenty since that s how my brain is thinking at the moment The PlotDoesn t really exist Yeah there s a loose series Indiscretion of events that defines the bookr the Zombie War but it s told through interviews with different survivors from different countries And they re short too I even checked this with the book paper form Each interview amounts to a page r two maybe 5 max Each tends to discuss a certain important event which ends up getting referred to by characters later in the book and ften mentioned by the Soul Dust one directly followingIt s extremely clever and lets you see how well developed this whole idea isIt s extremely cleverMax Brooks has literally thoughtf everything when it comes to a war against zombies I thought the same in my reading The Dyfed Enigma: Unidentified Flying Objects in West Wales of The Zombie Survival Guide and it goes just as well here EVERYTHINGHe goes into why tanks are all but useless against hordesf zombies because you have to take 6S: The 6S Review, Issue 2 out their heads Anything else and they ll still shamble and probably even become dangerous when you tripver them Blackbird on the ground The airforce is just as useless because it s so much money and effort for such a little amountf good Better spent Midwest Maize: How Corn Shaped the U.S. Heartland on a bunchf soldiers with tons Surly Bonds of amo He even goes into better strategies for fighting this war why the zombies are such a good enemy because they don t need to be bred fedr led as I ll let the book explain Very clever and not even pretentious about it Just captivating And this isn t the nly thing I liked although we re getting into the middle ground because I didn t love the audio eitherThe AudioOne f the things that got me excited to listen to this The Sanford Guide to Hepatitis Therapy 2016-2017 on audio was that it s read by a full cast That means they re trying REALLY hard and that tends to be a good thing especially if you don t likene Syzygy: Reflections on the Monastery of the Seven Rays or twof the voices it s kay it s nly temporary With just Whore Stories: A Revealing History of the World's Oldest Profession one narrator that can really kill a book I mentioned that this is told through many different people in different countries and they have actors like Rob Reiner and John Turturro Even Max Brooks himself plays the partf the interviewer John Turturro from The Big LebowskiVery cooluntil the point The Paper Wife of distraction There are so many different countries represented that the accents started to distract heavily from the story I found myself pondering why the German guy had such a heavy accentn his R s and yet could perfectly pronounce TH every time And this was just the ne guy One f the benefits We, the People: Of Earth Elders of a single narrator is that even when they do an accent it s easier to understand because English is their primary language The audio s great for the most partutside Black Marxism: The Making of the Black Radical Tradition of that little niggle about the accents butne thing I absolutely HATE about it isit s abridgedAbridgedI would probably never forgive myself if I listened to this abridged audio version and never actually read the entire book if I actually thought that mattered Maybe مترو others are better sleuths than myself but I can t find a readingf World War Z that s not abridged At the same after having read the book the abridged version seems to do enough justice to the entirety f the novel what with how it is rganized that it just cuts The Windy Season out a fewf the interviewsNormally this is heresy but I can live with it for this Oldies but Goodies one timenlyWhat I didn t likeI think the thing that just makes this an A Month of Sundays okay to good book for me is that while it s style andrganization is uniue and highly clever it also takes away from my ability to care Without just following Evangeline, a Master For Tonight Companion Novel one personr a group Beneath the Jolly Roger of people there s no attachment to any specific person The MovieBrad Pitt will make everything betterAfter writing the above I actually do think the movie will make it all better It seems like it will be followingne single person and that s what this reader needs Movie s set for a June 2013 release Here s the trailer tooIn the end in the sense Merzbook: The Pleasuredome of Noise of my final feelings not any post apocalyptic senseLet s just say if we ever do get into a Zombie War you better have a copyf World War Z and The Zombie Survival Guide n you Someone s already gone through the effort f thinking up EVERY situation that can Pig occur what s effective what s not and put it down in words No sense reinventing the wheelWhile an entertaining idea and clever execution these were the exact things that made World War Z a book I could never love It s worth a read ifnly to see how in depth you have not thought about zombies3 ut f 5 Stars Recommended with ReservationsThe movie an updateI just wanted to make a uick note about the movie I m happy to say I called it correctly I enjoyed the movie much than the book even though you can really nly say the movie is a loose adaptation if you can even say that I thought it was much better to visit
