World War Z

September 30, 2008

World War Z is my pick this week in both book and audiobook form.  I have been listening to the audiobook which is fantastic.  Not only is the book read, they actually got a number of fairly well known actors including Alan Alda to do the different voices of the characters.  This adds to the “realism” of the book.  The book itself is a history of a war between humans and zombies.  While I am not really a zombie fan, this book is more about the human condition after the war.  This makes it really compelling to read.  The reason I recommend both the audiobook and regular book is that the audiobook is an abridged version, so you can get the whole thing by reading.
