World War Z by Max Brooks

World War Z

352 pages
We're not going to lie to you. The book doesn't have Brad Pitt. But it does have zombies, a dystopian world in which a brave few fight off the living dead, and the kind of page-turning, nail-biting, mind-twisting story that will give you goose bumps, even while you're lying out under the broiling summer sun.
