World War Z

If you get the chance, read World War Z.

I have never cared for movies featuring zombies due to an overzealous, horror movie loving mother who dragged me to see pretty much any movie with scary stuff. Zombies were the worst because back in the seventies, those were pretty much the only ones that had a lot of blood and violence.

The point is, there is a metaphor behind the idea itself and I think that it is only lately, with seeing so many people behaving like zombies, that I can appreciate the subtext.

Great, great book.
