In this account of the last great world war, Max Brooks interviews key players and everyday survivors of the worst catastrophe in human history. Ten years after the fighting ended, twenty years after the first breakouts; these intimate moments unravel to reveal a story of political manipulation, economic pandering, cultural revolution and technological upheaval that began after the first zombies started coming. Families, governments and whole continents fail in the onslaught. This book details the reality of a reclaimed world that will never be the same.

A bit slow at first but as you read on it gets a lot more entertaining.

I heartily enjoyed this book. It makes for great plane reading. You get this global perspective and how connected every culture is to each other. even if you don't believe the zombie apocalypse is imminent, the book gives an insightful view into the mindset of America post the Iraqi War and how the government truly affects everyone's lives for the better and worse.

If you like books that keep you up at night, this is definitely a book you'll want to pick up. The world has been overwhelmed by a plague that causes dead bodies to re-animate and attack. Only direct shots to the head can kill them, and a single bite causes infection. Humanity barely survived, and our narrator is tasked with writing up how it happened in hopes of preventing it from happening again. Told in a semi-documentary style, our narrator travels across the globe, from China to the United States, Ecuador to the Artic, telling the tale of how the virus started and spread. The zombies are described in vivid detail but the real scare is the all-too-plausible failures of multiple governments and human beings.
