      "I loved World War Z. I am not particularly interested in Zombie or the recent media that has used them for content, but I loved the style and storytelling in this novel. It was so intriguing to read a story about the apocalypse that jumped around to different characters. We were given exposure to different areas and the experiences of many different survivors. It made for a nonlinear story, but one that kept me engaged from start to finish!"
