09.24.08 This book thoughtfully posits the question "What if zombies were real?" Basically, every "interview subject" (the book is written as an oral history) represents another idea in how Earth would react to a sudden zombie threat. Some of it is pretty expected (like people panicking, a military response, treating it like a virus, etc.) and some of it's pretty damn ingenious (like the submarine battles, space observation, Quislings). Brooks also extends these hypotheticals into geopolitical ramifications to good effect as well as interesting byproducts like ecological disaster due to everyone buring wood fires or kids not playing on the beach anymore. Overall it's a great ready especially if you're into zombies and thinking about those kinds of "what if" scenarios (Just like the comic... that was sweet). On nearly every page I had a "huh" moment where I thought about what I was reading and deduced "yeah, I can see that happening." Great book.
