Book 11: World War Z

01

World War Z by Max Brooks
Book: 11/52
Completed: October 26, 2015
Purchased: Goodwill

Occasionally compelling but generally dry, World War Z steered clear of action despite heavy military themes. This book sure made me loath acronyms.

The sociopolitical commentary was so heavy handed that it severely dated the book.

The zombie fighting was interesting during the 5% of the book that actually addressed zombies.

If you would read a book about the gradual restructuring of the governments of the globe after a near-catastrophic event, which is delivered in a way that prevents you from becoming attached to any characters or experiencing the “human angle,” this book is for you. It wasn’t for me, which is a particular let down because I’ve heard nothing but good things about it, and I picked it out especially for Halloween. Oh well.
