World War Z by Max Brooks

Max Brooks’ World War Z was hugely popular immediately, as it really was a fresh take on the zombie fiction subgenre. Being that zombies have been the “it” thing for a while, World War Z is refreshing because it is such a unique way of telling a story like this, as it uses “eye-witness accounts” of people who are stuck in the middle of the war between humans and the undead. A modern classic.
Scare Factor: 4 – The first-person narratives create a real sense of immediacy and make the scares more intense. Wonderful for anybody who loves zombies, but might be too scary for some.
