4. WORLD WAR Z - Max Brooks

Oh. I'm. Sorry.

Obviously, "an oral history of the zombie war" is not a book I would typically read. However, my son loved Brooks's other novel, so I thought I would be a responsible parent. Once a year is enough.

In the not-so-distant future, the world goes to war against the living dead. The story is told through the recollections of different people who are being interviewed for posterity.

At first, it was silly fun. Then, I thought, "Wow, I never would have thought of that." Now, I'm buying guns and practicing daily. Kidding!

2.75 out of 5.0 for fun/vacation Zombies who dance on tables.

I thought this book was pretty fun. Trivia: Max Brooks is the son of Mel Brooks.
