Book Review: “World War Z”
Reviewed by Brice Soignier
In the beginning there are just a few small outbreaks of corpses craving the flesh of other humans. Eventually those small outbreaks escalate until every continent, except Antarctica is overrun with swarms of Zacks, what many survivors called the undead menace.
From the American plains, to the African savannah, to the Korean peninsula, the entire human race is battling a common enemy, an enemy that grows larger every time a human died. This book tells of the human will to survive and what certain individuals are willing to do for themselves and for others to attain a common goal—to outlive the living dead.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading World War Z and would highly recommend it to anyone who is willing to read certain gory details. The book is targeted toward more mature and advanced readers; there were many instances through the book where I had to reread passages to fully grasp what had happened. This book earns a 10 out of 10 in my book.
