Community Reviews


I am rather unsatisfied with a reviews so far, because "really good book" doesn't even begin to describe this story. This is not just one of the best zombie books I have read, it is one of the best books, period. The quality lies in the presentation. A unique perspective on a story which could have turned out to be terrible is instead pure genius. The interviews with people all around the world make this book amazing. With each interview, you really feel like you get to know the person telling the story. This might have detracted from the story, instead, it enhances it. The human element of the story is what really gets you about this book.

Brooks is a genius and it is obviously illustrated in this book. An absolute recommendation to anyone and everyone- just make sure you keep the lights on!

re: greatest zombie book

it is a documentary

Greatest Zombie Book

This is one of the best zombie books out there. It takes a unique approach in the writing too. Instead of being written as a normal book with a few characters its written as a series of interviews with people that took part in the war.
