Max Brooks - World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War


Narrated By : Max Brooks, Alan Alda, John Turturro, Rob Reiner etc.

Publisher's Summary: 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 30 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. Ranging from the now infamous village of New Dachang in the United Federation of China, where the epidemiological trail began with the 12-year-old Patient Zero, to the unnamed northern forests where untold numbers sought a terrible and temporary refuge in the cold, to the United States of Southern Africa, where the Redeker Plan provided hope for humanity at an unspeakable price, to the west-of-the-Rockies redoubt where the North American tide finally started to turn, this invaluable chronicle reflects the full scope and duration of the Zombie War. What the Critics Say: Winner of Audio Publishers Association 2007 Audie Award, Multi-Voiced Performance Audie Award Finalist, Audiobook of the Year, 2007 "Hard to put down." (Publishers Weekly) "A literate, ironic, strangely tasty treat." (Kirkus Reviews)
