Not just for Zombie lovers. This book has a little something for everyone. In the beginning, the pandemic and the way people and governments reacted felt similar to Jose Saramago’s “Blindness” (but with punctuation). The book is done in short personal stories, each one is another piece of the bigger picture. The stories are woven together brilliantly. By the end it feels like Max Brooks has written a future history, it has that real of a feel to it. The Zombies were cool too, but to me they just represented a disaster large enough to threaten all human life. The stories show realistically (at least to me) how people would deal with such a disaster.
