World War Z

Author Max Brooks wrote this book from the perspective of someone looking back on a global war with the undead a decade after major hostilities ended. While it might sound like a goofy premise, it actually works surprisingly well. His inventions of details like how survivors cope in the long term, environmental impacts, migration patterns and more really add a unique perspective not seen in the typical zombie tale.
I listened to this one in mp3 format from our digital collection. It's extremely well performed, featuring the voices of Alan Alda, Henry Rollins, and a good collection of other famous names. If you only listen to one zombie story read by Alan Alda this year, make it this one.
