The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched first-hand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years, traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of 30 million souls, to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet.

World War Z has been one of my favorite books for a long time. I read my old paperback multiple times over the years, until it met an untimely end thanks to a bags trip into the ocean. Seeking a new copy, I thought to try the audiobook. I have never enjoyed these stories as much as I did listening to them portrayed by an amazing cast. I'm sure I will listen to this many times, as I read it many times, and continue to enjoy them. I can honestly say I enjoyed this production more than the theatrical adaptation.
