Genre: Post Apocalyptic/Zombie
I really had high hopes for this book. I loved Robopocalypse, which has a similar concept, and I read so many good reviews of World War Z that I was really let down when it didn't meet my expectations.
World War Z is a compilation of stories from survivors of the zombie war. I was intrigued by the premise, but most of the stories failed to keep my attention. In fact, most of them I could barely get through they were so dry and boring. There were a couple of interesting ones littered throughout that kept the book from being a total bore - one of my favorites was the pilot who crashed in the middle of a zombie occupied zone. However, a lot of the stories were more political and/or military centered. I would have liked to see more personal stories from regular citizens.
Overall, I was let down. I really struggled to get through this book and it wasn't even that long. Try Robopocalypse instead.
