Picked this up last week and am almost done with it.  If you like the zombie stuff and want a different perspective on a zombie apocalypse, it's a good, light read.  It focuses on the "Big Picture....."  Doesn't focus on a group of survivors, but rather is a series of short interviews (3-4 pages) with survivors from around the world from all different walks of life 10 years after the zombie plague ended.  Through the interviews you get a sense of how the plague starts, spreads out, and overwhelms the entire world.  And because the interviews are conducted after the plague is contained it also gives a glimpse to how the world is different after the plague subsides.



 



Movie looks like it doesn't follow the book at all.

I love reading zombie books.  Read this one before among others.  There is a Zombie Survival Journal book that is much better.  Tells the whole story in journal form after the fact through interviewing people

The book is one of the best zombie fiction books out there. Unfortunately it appears from the trailer, that the movie will not be consistent with the book. Won't stop me from watching it.

Just finished it. Book would have worked better as a miniseries than a film. Too bad they are going to stray from the structure of the book because the unique structure is what sets it apart from the other zombie stories.
