I heard of this book and was intrigued, given my interest in zombies. When I heard that Brad Pitt was starring in the film (to be released in 2013), my interest was piqued further. I figured it would tide me over until the next season of The Walking Dead.
Unfortunately, I did not like this book at all. It was an interesting concept–it told the stories of various people who survived the zombie war. But, each story was just that–a single short story. None of the stories tied together. And, other than the narrator, there weren’t any recurring characters. The narrator was a UN employee who went around the world interviewing people after the conflict was over. The movie sounds a little more interesting in that the main character is going around the world trying to prevent the zombie apocalypse, so I’ll probably still check it out even though I did not enjoy the book. Plus, it has Brad Pitt.
