    The Zombie Survival Guide. it’s not so much narritive but it’s interesting.

    ack

    I read this one last year.

    Good book.

    ack – The Good War! 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.

    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.
