Brooks Max

World War Z

World War Z Оценка: 4.8 (61)
Genre: fantasy
Annotation:
Brooks, the author of the determinedly straight-faced parody The Zombie Survival Guide (2003), returns in all seriousness to the zombie theme for his second outing, a future history in the style of Theodore Judson s Fitzpatrick s War. Brooks tells the story of the world s desperate battle against the zombie threat with a series of first-person accounts as told to the author  by various characters around the world. A Chinese doctor encounters one of the earliest zombie cases at a time when the Chinese government is ruthlessly suppressing any information about the outbreak that will soon spread across the globe. The tale then follows the outbreak via testimony of smugglers, intelligence officials, military personnel and many others who struggle to defeat the zombie menace. Despite its implausible premise and choppy delivery, the novel is surprisingly hard to put down. The subtle, and not so subtle, jabs at various contemporary politicians and policies are an added bonus.

   Definitely with a lot more of heart and seriousness than the film adaptation
