Book Review: World War Z by Max Brooks

Science Fiction 4/5

Written in the style of a historical account, this novel documents the spread of zombies from a small infection in a remote Chinese province to a world plague. Yes, there are graphic zombie attacks, the least interesting parts of the book, but mostly this is an examination of human motivations. Who wouldn’t sell their worldly possessions for the cash to smuggle your wife or child across a border despite the fact that they may be coming down with something? This novel is truly a window into how pandemics spread…or how we deny climate change.
