I Will Survive

So I finally got around to reading Max Brooks' 'The Zombie Survival Guide.' What did I think? Well - it was okay, but not as accessible as 'World War Z.' This is more of a book that looks good up on a bookshelf, or something you read in airports or while sitting in the waiting room at the doctor's office. The last portion of the book involves past outbreaks and that was definitely the most interesting (hence the graphic novel which was released for it), but unless you're planning on making a zombie movie (or are seriously anticipating an outbreak of undead ghouls), this book can be a bit too thorough for humorous reading. But for fans of George Romero, this is obviously required reading - if only to say you read it...
