World War Z by Max Brooks

Hi all... so the film starring Brad Pitt actually comes out in June and I for one have been meaning to read the book for some time. Perhaps we can read the book and then plan a trip to the cinema to compare the two?

heres a blurb on the book for those of you who havent heard of it:

 

It began with rumours from China about another pandemic. The reports were fragmentary and confused. A world still reeling from bird flu and limited nuclear exchanges had had enough of apocalypse. Most people just wanted to rebuild their lives. Then the cases started to multiply and what had looked like the stirrings of a criminal underclass, even the beginnings of a revolution, soon revealed itself to be much, much worse. Faced with a future of mindless, man-eating horror, humanity was forced to accept the logic of world government and face events that tested our sanity and our sense of reality. Maybe, Brooks argues, the zombies brought us back to life. Based on extensive interviews with survivors and key players in the ten-year fight-back against the horde, "World War Z" brings the very finest traditions of American journalism to bear on what is surely the most incredible story in the history of civilisation.

    hmm... probably the most unpopular book to date, totally my fault for buggering up the date of release in paperback for the one orginally voted for... still do come along if you can! :)
