World War Z- Book of the Month May 1 2014

World War Z- Book of the Month May 1 2014

Postby merricat sugar » Fri Jan 31, 2014 10:19 am

I read this book for my IRL book club and just can't get enough! The book itself is a quick and easy read, but if you haven't yet listen to the audiobook! The author, Max Brooks, is Mel Brooks' son- and there must have been some favors called in some where because the audio is packed with well known actors who do a great job.

Also- you do have to read/listen to the book. Watching the movie won't cut it as the only thing the two share is a title.

Read this cover to cover on my vacation a few months ago... Will be interesting to see how the conversations go since the book is chopped up into small segments of different perspectives and interactions of people in the zombie war.

This is my favorite book of all time.

Granted I don't read much and love zombies. This is no great piece of literature, but it emcompassed everything (and then some) about what a world would be like if humans encountered this threat.

Can't wait to discuss.

Good book apart from the fact Australians could not hole up against a zombie invasion as well as other countries apparently.

Even if you've already read the book I'd highly recommend the audiobook as well. Max Brooks as the interviewer is rather "meh" but other than that... a mostly brillant cast.

And while the version Smeddum posted is good enough I'd also recommend looking for the "Unabridged" version. It's twice as long as the one posted above and features every single chapter of the actual book.

So the Youtube video is a good start and if you already read the book a while ago it should be good enough to catch up but if you haven't read it at all go for the Unabridged one. It's available on Audible for example. Or other... shadier parts of the interwebs

Probably my favorite book from the last 10 years. I'll have to track down the audiobook, it seems the perfect format for one. I still want to see the movie, maybe once its on Netflix instant.

Just know that the only thing the book and the movie have in common really is the name and that there are zombies. If you are fine with that then you might like the movie. I did not care all that much for the movie. It was not bad but it just was not anything like the book.

Hi there;

I'm new here, so I'm guessing that since this was posted well in advance of May, that the expectation is to read it prior to that date, or are we just supposed to have it by then so that we can all start reading it on May 1st? I've seen the movie, and liked it, but as with any book related movie, I'm sure that is because I saw the movie prior to reading the book. I think that the only book turned movie that was ever done justice on film that I've seen was the first Harry Potter. But I digress, I'm happy to order the book (and I've seen the referral link on the site, so I'll do it that way), I just need to know when I'm supposed to start reading it.

Thanks!

Read the book before May, then there will be forum discussions regarding it. Look at "Old Man's War" thread that is ongoing right now - that is the current book club topic. I'm also relatively new, so I'm not the best for site insight, but I'm looking for to World War Z - it's currently my favorite book of all time. But I'm a huge zombi-phile.

You should start it before may, but in general the discussions will go for the month of May. If you are a fast reader, you can read along with the discussions and not miss a beat... if you are slower like I am, start early so you can be ahead of the questions.

I will be able to participate in the book club discussions once again since school is on break for the summer. And this is a solid book to start back up on my leisurely reading.

I had a little bit of an issue with it at first, but once I got a little further in it became a pretty easy and quick read for me.
