This is how it started with the Zombies...

China is trying to CONTAIN deadliest form of Bubonic Plague...


It started with China in World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War by Max Brooks. Its a fabulous Zombie book that really gave me the creeps. It gives a War of the Worlds feel to it in that if you just jumped in the story, it feels like it really happened. Each page is footnoted which lends towards the REALISTIC feel.


Its a good read and I recommend it entirely! Its not a practical preparedness/survivalist tome, but you get a sense of acting quickly and with determination (Israel in this book was a great example). That and you have to destroy the Zombie brain ;)

OH MY WORD - It has been my absolute FAVE of the past many book I have read. So much so, I went to just regular ole fiction for my next book because I couldnt find anything "survivalist" or such to even come close to sparking my interest.

Thank you so much for turning me on......to the book ;)

So glad you had so much fun on vae-cae!

I like those books. I got "A handbook on the Zombie Wars" and there was a lot of good practical self reliance information in it.

Good thing I have a few machetes sitting in the spare closet. I loved both of those books.
