    2. I read this one last year.

      Good book.

      Don’t know of another book written in the same style.

      Damned kids today. It’s not like it’s an obscure book, it pretty much defined a form of non-fiction. Max Brooks was intentionally adopting Studs Terkel’s narrative style of this specific book to lend realism to an impossible scenario. It could almost be considered a parody of The Good War.

      He used the same trick with the Zombie Survival Guide, which was presented in such a deadpan manner that it actually got me to consider the defensibility of my house against the undead. Pretty neat.

      But seriously, dude, read a book. Something without unicorns or spaceships on the cover.

      Sorry man, I do not read non-fiction.

      Reality is too depressing.

      I’ve read that, and the two sequels as well, the first story was the strongest imho.

      I read like 8 books a month, and I have a subscription to booksfree, so there’s plenty of reading being done… unfortunately it doesn’t look like they have “The Good War” in their library 🙁

      The book has a happy ending.

      **Spoiler alert!**

      We win. Read the book.

      That’s sort of sad. They’d probably have it if it was made into a movie. I’ll bet they have ‘The Right Stuff’

      BTW, Brad Pitt bought the rights to WWZ. Apparently it’s in ‘Pre-production’ whatever that means.
