World War Z

An Oral History of the Zombie War

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


9/12/16 is the Tenth Anniversary of World War Z’s publication!
We survived the zombie apocalypse, but how many of us are still haunted by that terrible time? We have (temporarily?) defeated the living dead, but at what cost? Told in the haunting and riveting voices of the men and women who witnessed the horror firsthand, World War Z, a #1 New York Times bestseller and the basis for the blockbuster movie, is the only record of the plague years.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 07, 2006 – Brooks, the author of the determinedly straight-faced parody The Zombie Survival Guide (2003), returns in all seriousness to the zombie theme for his second outing, a future history in the style of Theodore Judson's Fitzpatrick's War. Brooks tells the story of the world's desperate battle against the zombie threat with a series of first-person accounts "as told to the author" by various characters around the world. A Chinese doctor encounters one of the earliest zombie cases at a time when the Chinese government is ruthlessly suppressing any information about the outbreak that will soon spread across the globe. The tale then follows the outbreak via testimony of smugglers, intelligence officials, military personnel and many others who struggle to defeat the zombie menace. Despite its implausible premise and choppy delivery, the novel is surprisingly hard to put down. The subtle, and not so subtle, jabs at various contemporary politicians and policies are an added bonus.

Customer Reviews

Zombie Best!

This is by far the best zombie story ever written. Based on an entirely believable progression of a fictitious epidemic. A truly imaginable and well explained disease that makes the idea of the walking dead seem absolutely plausible.

This book should cause a feeling of urgent need to read The Zombie Survival Guide.

If you need a hero to follow, watch a movie. I recommend Zombie Land.

When you want a vivid picture of the world littered with walking corpses and the desperation of the living human race, read World War Z.


I've been into zombies all my life , it's one of my favorite genres . Max Brooks got it right with this one!!!!!

who knew?

I really enjoyed this book. It has a clever way of attacking the zombie genre ( which i'm not personally into.. but thought i'd give this book a try). Quick, thought provoking "excerpts." You can read it 10 minutes at a time or blast the book in a quick 4 hours>> give it a try though>> just read a sample and I bet you get captivated.
