10. World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War

by Max Brooks (342pp.)

Co-worker liked this book so I asked if I could read it. It's like a non-fiction book except about a fictional event. The narrator interviews a wide variety of people to discuss their role in the world zombie war. For the most part I enjoyed it. It was the perfect mix of smart and disturbing. It haunted my dreams more than once. Overall, I think I admired it more as a piece of writing than as entertainment. There were definitely sections that were so scary I could hardly read but other parts were more political and war mentality and while realistic and brilliant -- dry for me. Definite recommend for zombie book fans.
