What an excellent novel! I think I prefer my zombies on the page rather than in the movies—too gory and visceral a picture, but my mind can conjure (or not as the mood takes me) well enough on its own in a literary venue. This particular book reads more like a popular non-fiction, a series of interviews of people who lived through the Zombiepocalypse. Split into sections, the ‘journalist’ follows a series of people from all over the world as they discuss what they went through. Nothing is left by the wayside—this books discusses politics on a world scale, both what we have now and what we end up with in the aftermath. Well worth the read!

Edit: It was so good, I got the audiobook, and listened to it, too!
