If you enjoy the feeling of being freaked out while reading at night before bed, losing sleep because you wake up sweating from nightmares, or getting in trouble at school because you can’t stop reading a book and focus on your work, then pick up this creepy Zombie Apocalypse novel. World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War
It’ll be like the cookie you know you shouldn’t be eating, but keep shoving in your mouth anyway.
The comprehension level is challenging in a good way for avid readers. You will learn some new vocab words. If you have seen the film already, the theme is similar of course, but the plot differs in many ways, so you won’t be bored for one moment.
Why you will like it: This book is divided into chapters told from the various accounts of men and women around the world and their personal stories of survival in the zombie apocalypse. Each story contributes to the overall rising action of surviving the duration of the gruesome war that plagues the world. Each story is spine tingling in its own chilling way.
Seriously: Don’t underestimate the genre of horror elements in this book- I’m dead serious…..no pun intended. (don’t read this if you get scared easily)

“The monsters that rose from the dead, they are nothing compared to the ones we carry in our hearts” ― Max Brooks, World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War
