    Anyone Read World War Z? (please no spoilers) (zombie content)

    I just started it per a friend's suggestion on my Kindle. - World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War: Max Brooks: 9780307346612: Amazon.com: Books

    35% in, pretty entertaining and fun!

    I just got the physical book, The Zombie Survival Guide by the same author which is supposed to be a humorous side book to WWZ. Looks fun/funny. Funny book to put on the bookshelf. The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection from the Living Dead: Max Brooks: 9781400049622: Amazon.com: Books

    As I was writing this, I just realized there is a movie based on the book coming out next summer! World War Z (2013) - IMDb

    I read the book and the movie coming out really changes things up it appears with zombies that move at warp speed instead of just rambling around and they seem to have the intellect of ants when it comes to working together. Watch the trailer if you haven't seen it yet.

    I read the book when it first came out and liked it a lot. Unfortunately, the movie has nothing to do with the book, except sharing the title.

    Really? I don't know anything about the movie. How is it different (without spoilers).

    Cool. How was the ZSG? Was it humor or was it serious? I heard it didn't matter what order you read the two so I started with WWZ. I hear that WWZ audio book is cool too, it's more like a vocal play where the interviews are like real interview with different characters, not just one person reading the book's text.

    I enjoyed the book and look forward to the movie. But it looks like the movie will have very little in common with the book.

    I am about 100 pages in.
    I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.

    Yeah, I just checked out the trailer. Totally different from the book but looks fun nonetheless. I don't mind Brad Pitt, but he certainly doesn't play a good badass.

    Both are great books. I would suggest reading the ZSG in a serious mindset, otherwise its not as fun. You'll crack up when you get to the gun parts, great writer but obviously not too familiar with weapons.

    I enjoyed it. It discusses much more than I thought it would walking through various stages of "outbreak" and dealing with it. I was told they go hand in hand so order was not a determining factor. It has some good insight one might not consider, espeially that silent weapons can be much more effective.

    Good book, a little too much FDR/WWII nostalgia nonsense in it for me but I still enjoyed it.
