Book: World War Z


World War Z by Max Brooks

Book of the week: I love oral histories and I also love zombies. This one gives a look at the potential end of world via zombie apocalypse, told from multiple perspectives around the globe. It’s tense and touches on the ineptitude of government bureaucracy, which is gonna be a huge future issue, zombies or no. A lot of people ignored or misjudged this one as crappy genre fiction but it’s a solid page turner with chilling ideas lurking beneath the headstone of civilization. (Interestingly, author Max Brooks is the son of comedic film legend Mel Brooks, who is my dad’s favourite director ever. Tomorrow is also my dad’s birthday and he is badass and would survive any zombie apocalypse quite easily.)
