Marcel's avatar in comic style

The big zombie fad from a couple of years ago passed without me consuming much of what was produced. To this day, I haven't seen The Walking Dead. Zombies just aren't very interesting to me.

A couple of days ago, I noticed a craving for a post-apocalyptic book, and because I've read most of the highly-rated ones already, World War Z suddenly held a certain appeal.

Here's something I didn't know: It's written from the perspective of those who survived the zombie apocalypse! Someone is traveling the world, collecting eyewitness reports about what happened. What a great idea!

I enjoyed reading World War Z. It's a "What if" type of situation, where you learn that zombies can survive underwater, only to later discover how humanity dealt with oceans full of millions of undead. The logistics of a zombie invasion are actually interesting!

The format of having every interviewee's story be a short chapter made every not-so-engaging part (of which there were a few) bearable.
