World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War by Max Brooks

As I sat in the dark theater, watching World War Z, my thoughts centered around the excellent book of the same name, and that story wasn't appearing on the big screen.
Though I still loved the film, I wanted a movie that originated from the mind of Max Brooks, and hopefully, the next WWZ will correspond to the book in a greater degree.

There are many quotes from the book that are worth looking at. The following contain thoughts on lies, fears, monsters and human nature and more. Human beings show their true nature in a crisis, and what better crisis than a zombie apocalypse to push these qualities into the spotlight..

Please let me know what you thought of the book and the quotes.

“I think that most people would rather face the light of a real enemy than the darkness of their imagined fears.”

“The monsters that rose from the dead, they are nothing compared to the ones we carry in our hearts”
