World War Z Summary

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

It began with rumours from China about another pandemic. Then the cases started to multiply and what had looked like the stirrings of a criminal underclass, even the beginning of a revolution, soon revealed itself to be much, much worse.

Faced with a future of mindless man-eating horror, humanity was forced to accept the logic of world government and face events that tested our sanity and our sense of reality. Based on extensive interviews with survivors and key players in the ten-year fight against the horde, World War Z brings the finest traditions of journalism to bear on what is surely the most incredible story in the history of human civilisation.

Read the original cult novel that propelled the zombie genre into the mainstream - now a blockbuster film and game.

'An absolute must have ... Brooks infuses his writing with such precise detail and authenticity, one wonders if he knows something we don't.' Simon Pegg

'Prepare to be entranced by this addictively readable oral history of the great war between humans and zombies . . . Will grab you as tightly as a dead man's fist.' Entertainment Weekly

'As a horror story, it's exciting. As a parable, it's terrifying.' Empire 5* Review

'Brilliant.' Time Out

'[Brooks'] iron-jaw narrative is studded with practical advice on what to do when the zombies come, as they surely will. A literate, ironic, strangely tasty treat.' Kirkus Reviews

'A sober, frequently horrifying and even moving account. . . . Brooks has delivered a full-blown horror novel, laced with sharp social and political observations and loads of macabre, gruesome imagery.' Fangoria

'Max Brooks has charted the folly of a disaster response based solely on advanced technologies and brute force in this step-by-step guide to what happened in the Zombie War.' Jeb Weisman, National Center for Disaster Preparedness

'The book opens in blood and guts, turns the world into an oversized version of hell, then ends with and affirmation of humanity's ability to survive the worst the world has to offer. It feels like the right book for the right times, and that's the eeriest detail of all.' The Onion

'The best science fiction has traditionally been steeped in social commentary. World War Z continues that legacy. . . . We haven t been this excited about a book without pictures since well, since ever.' Metro

'Each story locks together perfectly to create a wonderful, giddy suspense. Brooks also has the political savvy to take advantage of any paranoia a modern reader might feel . . . The perfect book for all us zombie junkies.' Paste

'The smartest novel about the undead you'll ever read... intricately detailed...utterly convincing - and terrifying.' FHM

'Max Brooks really is the godfather of all the zombie stories.' The Sun

World War Z Reviews

When the zombie apocalypse arrives, we'll be at Max Brooks' house ... As a horror story, it's exciting. As a parable, it's terrifying
