Film tie-in edition for the upcoming move blockbuster of World War Z starring Brad Pitt.

It began with rumours from China about another pandemic. Then the cases started to multiply and what had looked like the stirrings of a criminal underclass, even the beginnings of a revolution, soon revealed itself to be much, much worse.

Faced with a future of mindless, man-eating horror, humanity was forced to accept the logic of world government and face events that tested our sanity and our sense of reality. Based on extensive interviews with survivors and key players in the 10-year fight-back against the horde, World War Z brings the very finest traditions of American journalism to bear on what is surely the most incredible story in the history of civilisation.

    This was a great travel read. Easy and enjoyable. The idea sits with you initially, you get lost in the 'personal stories'.

    It isn't as scary as i thought it would be. i thought it would be about lots of people getting killed by huge waves of zombies, but i was wrong.
