World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War by Max Brooks
I picked this book up at the airport for a trip: it was zombies or vampires. What I thought would be some pretty light reading, turned into a page turner. The audiobook version was even better!
Written as a collection of oral histories from the survivors, World War Z chronicles the rise of the zombie plague to its eradication over a decade later. Histories are from all regions of the globe and walks of life. Due to this, Brooks is able to present a compelling story of the global collapse and rebuilding of society from multiple view points.
