    (E–pub) World War Z An Oral History of the Zombie War author Max Brooks ”The book of war the one we’ve been writing since one ape slapped another was completely useless in this situation We had to write a new one from scratch”With most apocalyptic situations I think the hardest part to deal with is that there are no wrong decisions or right decisions There are simply too many variables to consider if your ultimate goal is to survive The most meticulously planned strategies can still result in failure Yo

READ & DOWNLOAD World War Z An Oral History of the Zombie War 107 Aunting immediacy the human dimension of this epochal event Facing the often raw and vivid nature of these personal accounts reuires a degree of courage on the part of the reader but the effort is invaluable because as Mr Brooks says in his introduction By excluding the human factor aren't we risking the kind of personal detachment from history that may heaven forbid lead us one day to repeat it And in the end isn't the human factor the only true difference between us and the enemy we now refer to as 'the living dead'Note Some of the numerical and factual material contained in this edition was previously published under the auspices of the United Nations Postwar Commissi. I just can t get on this bandwagon The pseudo government reports the book is written in handicap it in many ways First there are no protagonists to grow with no story arc no climax etc You know what s going to happen from day one there was a world crisis involving zombies and at least some people live to tell the tale The sure knowledge of the outcome deflates any tension and book feels flacid The pseudo scientific jargon is a poor imitation my sister a nurse tossed aside Brooks other Zombie manfesto in disgust within the first few pages and this one fairs no betterand there are far too many emotional pauses and descriptive introductions for what amounts to an addendum to a government study of events The thing that put me over the edge with this book is the inconsistency one chapter has a boy with bloody knuckles sliding his hands about in zombie goo and remaining uninfected and in the next chapter there is an expression of gratitutde that no one exposed to detrius from a headshot has open wounds to be infected through What editor let that get by On top of that racial national stereotypes abound and are crude and unappealing Brooks is obviously a big fan of Israel as they are the heroes of the day even going so far as to selflessly save Palestinian refugees yeah rightand remnants of South Africa s apartheid system are given a reprieve due to their pragmatism Russians are wacky comrades Chinamen are inscrutable and Americans are cowboys weakened by education and consumerism UghI won t recommend this book to anyone even a die hard zombie fan lest World War Z ruin the genre for them forever

READ & DOWNLOAD World War Z An Oral History of the Zombie War 107 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 a. This book was initially recommended to me by several people in the office and since I love zombies and apocalyptic themes well I was pretty excited Unfortunately it did not live up to my expectations and I struggled to finish it I m going to write this review under the assumption that the reader has some inkling about the story and how it s constructedThere are two issues that killed it for me Firstly most of the characters had the same or similar voice Of course this is partly to do with the fact that the voices all originate from the mind of one individual the author Also the journalisticinterview approach to constructing the narrative limits how much color the author can impart on any given character and A is inherently dry no matter how exciting the events described are intended to be This is a minor gripe though and one that can be lived withA serious complaint however is that this book can be seen as completely lacking any and all dramatic tension that a person or me expects from a survival horror themed story The primary draw the zombie war and how humanity survived is such a compelling hook but it s toldby the people who survived As in past tense as in we are left with their impressions of things that happened to them Basically then the story devolves into an excercise in basic exposition And then this happened and then that happened And so the author is free to weave his story without any pesky things like character development story arcs plotting and personal details that are shown and not told It seems to me like an extraordinarily easy maybe even lazy way to tell a story One other minor point For me accounts of survival when the victims are real have meaning that allows them to transcend the limitations described above WW2 Holocaust survivors accounts for example can take your breath away The difference is of course that they were real events that happened to real people Since all the classic storytelling elements are dispensed with we re basically left with the author s views on our current world particularly and naturally the wars and our cultures However it s my view that there are dozens of books written about these subjects already books that haven t needed to sex the discussion up with a horde of shambling undead So in summary if I m going to read an apocalyptic recounting of the end of civilization as we know it I want to read about people in real time struggling to survive not being told how people surivived after it was over I realize though that it s all a matter of taste as I know half a dozen people whose views I respect that absolutely loved this book D
