Book/Movie: World War Z by Max Brooks

This book was the winner of the "book that is also a movie" category. The movie is set to come out at the end of June. So perhaps at this July meetup, we can discuss date/theater for going to see the movie too.

The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched first-hand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years, traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of thirty million souls to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet. He recorded the testimony of men, women, and sometimes children who came face-to-face with the living, or at least the undead, hell of that dreadful time. World War Z is the result. Never before have we had access to a document that so powerfully conveys the depth of fear and horror, and also the ineradicable spirit of resistance, that gripped human society through the plague years.

    The book was interesting in that it was a new format on the novel. I did not complete it however the conversation with everyone was great and made me want to finish the book

    So sorry, I had a family issue just come up and I won't make it tonight. I'd enjoy seeing the movie with everyone if that materializes. Enjoy.

    This is my first meetup to attend for the group. Should I just look for the big group or ask about the meetup when I get there?

      Depends on how early you get there, but I would say to bring your copy of the book, and look around for people with copies of the book. Bringing the book along is a good indicator that helps people flock correctly. If you're not carrying a book, and the venue's kind of crowded, people might not know that they should wave you over!

    Do ya'll know that TPLS is closed for an Employee Appreciation Party? I think you might need to find a backup and notify everyone.

    For anyone wanting to see the movie, Groupon may have another deal for $5 tickets for any time any showing (you pay the difference for 3D) in July. You'd have to see it at Studio Movie Grill but there seems to be enough of those around.
