Staff Reviews


World War Z is brain munching fun brought to you by the expert in all
things zombie, Max Brooks. This is a very straight faced account of a
zombie pandemic and the subsequent world wide war to exterminate the
zombies. Told as a series of dispatches from the survivors we learn of
the origins of the pandemic and watch as a series of tales begin to form
a larger picture. It is often the case that horror stories, and zombie
tales in particular, are used to poke fun at society and Brooks
certainly does in World War Z, it doesn’t take much to guess which U.S.
administration Brooks used as a model for the one in his book. This is a
terrifically fun read on so many levels that it could only be brought
to us by the son of Mel himself.
