Countering the Zombie Threat Print Email

Jacket covers of

Written as an "oral history" of a global zombie war that almost wiped out humanity, World War Z by Max Brooks has become a favorite in the zombie genre since it was published in 2006. This summer, a movie adaptation starring Brad Pitt comes to the silver screen. But before you go to the theater, read the whole story, which comes complete with practical advice on how to deal with zombies when they arrive, as well as first-hand accounts from those who were there and lived to tell the tale. Fans of postapocalyptic fiction and well-crafted alternate history will savor every page.  Already read it?  Warm Bodies is another zombie tale also made into a movie, or chose from dozens of others in zombie fiction.
