...and can't wait to read them! I haven't read a good book in a while since Neil Strauss's The Game and Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings has already satisfied me until J.K. Rowling publishes a encyclopedia soon. I heard such good things about The Zombie Guide and World War Z and should have picked up the start of them all at age 13 in 2003, I know I'm missing out.

You won't be disappointed. Don't let the textbook stylings deter you, the guide is fun and keeps you going till the end and WWZ really immerses you in that post-Z holocaust.

Yeah, that what I heard-I love anything zombie related and this is going to be a couple of nice reads. I almost bought the audio book but I want it in my hands.

Oh, and don't forget the graphic novel. Need to pick this up myself.

Heard it's good, but short.

Oh, that's a comic? I thought from the title "Recorded" it was a CD with audio of the attacks. I'll keep this in mind.

There is an audiobook featuring various actors voicing the survivors.

World War Z is a damn fine book.

If you want to check out a zombie book with a twist on the genre, check out The Rising

Well, that sounds cool. Audio-books aren't for dummies anymore, they actually put some great voice-acting in them nowadays. Like radio-shows.

I really enjoyed the Zombie Survival Guide and I am getting ready to read World War Z. I also enjoyed reading David Wellingtons Monster Nation and Monster Island.

Keep hearing about this one, just forget to look for it whenever I'm at the bookstore.

I've said this before, but the WWZ audiobook is one of the greatest things ever. The voice-acting is ridiculously talented: Mark Hammil, Henry Rollins, Carl and Rob Reiner, Alan Alda, John Turturo, and more.

^ Really? I may actually pick that up before the film comes out. Sounds like they went all out. Or maybe just fans? Both?

Well, Max Brooks is Mel Brooks' son, which was his Reiner connection. And I think he did voice work on some cartoons, which is where he met a lot of the other guys. Ultimately, though, it's a face melter.

Yeah I still gotta pick that up. Mark Hammil is on it? He's a phenomenal voice actor.

He plays the main "grunt/soldier".
I remember how they called the zombies "Zack" (think Vietcong:"Charlie")

Yeah I was confused when I first read them saying "Zack" but then realized it.

When I was watching Zombieland and they started going through their "rules" I totally thought of the Zombie guide. Which I have yet to finish. Entertaining read though.

Z is such a damn fine book. Probably the best zombie related story this side of Walking Dead. Do not be surprised to read it more than once, or five times.

I was just talking abut WWZ today with a co-worker. Very Happy

It's a fun book to read. I wasn't 100% sure I was going to like it... mostly because I read before bed and zombie games give me nightmares so I wasn't looking forward to that. They never came and I stayed up late some nights reading. Very Happy

It's hard to put down. Very Happy
