World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War

World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War - This is a review of the audio book which, in my opinion, has to be one of the better audio books I've listened to in a long time. There is a full all-star cast and it is really fun trying to place those familiar voices. The story is told in a kind of news magazine format with the main narrator interviewing zombie war survivors as they talk about their experiences. The voices and locations change often, which provides a nice variety - if you grow tired of a certain narrator, chances are that in the next 5 minutes or so, there will be a new narrator with a different story. The audio book is very well done and I even listened to the final credits where the cast members names were read out. I was surprised by some of the Hollywood talent that participated in the book. Listening to this makes me wary about going to see the movie - there's no way it could hold up to this fantastic version. I understand that the movie has Brad Pitt running around (which shouldn't be that difficult to watch) but it doesn't really have the individual stories told by the survivors. If you are going to listen to one audio book this year, I'd recommend this one.
