I saw World War Z, lets just say it was less than satisfactory. I heard they're gonna turn it into a trilogy. I bought the book right after I saw the movie. I have about 50 pages left. It's great, and really interesting. The movie shares very few similarities, just a few things from the book. Max Brooks also researched all the facts concerning weapons, vehicles, tactics, and other military machinery. Glad he did.

The Romero classic remains a favorite for many zombiephiles,,and now I have heard the term " ZILF " on a larger radio station in Toledo Oh., some folks just aren't right, but funny.
Is that the zombie version of "milf"? I may not sleep tonight.

The only Zombie book I have read lately was World War Z and it was an amazing book. I heard a quote from Max Brooks that was something along the lines of the only thing the book and movie had in common was the title. As far as movies go I liked Zombieland but I have yet to find a truley scary zombie flick.

My vote for the best Zombie book is World War Z. Great read. The upcoming movie by the same name does not look like it follows the book very closely, think they just boufght the rights so they could use the name.
I'd like to read the book suggested, however, for me it has to be well-written to hold my attention. Will look into it however. I hate to think of normal, well-intentioned, law-abiding citizens, because of government's dark corruption, has turned population into zombies. No matter what. They were once us.

It's very well written. It's in an interview point of view. Interviewing people around the world, different walks of life and experiences. I recommend it

F4U,,, that is correct,, apparently the zombie virus is not an STD and I concur,,, rather bizarre and somewhat unsettling but kinda funny in a sick way,,,
