the book i am reading now is pretty interesting, it is called "uncivil dead" . takes place during the american civil war. i am about 1/3 through it, so far, i like it.
my favorite is still WWZ. on that though, you have to realize that it is written as if Max Brooks is interviewing people and then writing the story later on. if that makes sense. the audio book is awesome even though it cuts out a few chapters. the characters are voiced by quite a few notable celebs including Henry Rollins, George Takei, and Mark Hammil, to name a few.
