Amazing book, as a sequel or as a stand-alone!

on 7/14/2011

I have been a fan of Max Brook's first book, The Zombie Survival Guide for several years. And this book is an excellent read regardless of whether or not you've read the first one. First and foremost this is a fun read, especially for a zombie buff. Gotta love it when the zombies break loose and hijinks ensue. But from another aspect, this book is much more; note that it NEVER in the book hints that this is a work of fiction. The level of research and attention to detail in each small "interview" that comprises this book is simply amazing. The details are really what gives this book its completely realistic feel. With footnotes telling you what the Chinese word for something is or to give a bit of history, it reads very much like all of the non-fiction post-war narratives that I have read. Max Brooks definitely did his research! His view of the world crumbling in on itself and attempting to rebuild in the not too distant future is chilling. Regardless of whether caused by Zombies, or terrorism, or an energy crisis, it is a poignant look at the fragility of our human society.

Excellent Read!

by Christian on 11/30/2012

Who knew a "zombie" book could be so entertaining, fun and yet 'deep'? I've read Brooks' first book, "The Zombie Survival Guide" and was hooked. I especially love it because it reads as fact-based , even though it's not... but it's fun to imagine it while reading the book. There is a deeper meaning than the zombie element in the book, aimed more at our society as a whole. As in his first book, he reminds me of the urgency of being self-reliant without losing your head about it. I hope Brooks keeps the quality coming!
