I have to agree with I am Legend/Omega Man.
It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat. - Theodore Roosevelt

Take a gander this way - zombie books discussion in the Literature forum.
Personally, I like Mira Grant's Newsflesh trilogy, as it is quite excellent.

Steven R. Boyett - Ariel and it's sequel Elegy Beach are both great, though not Zombie themed, they do have "monsters". Technology stops working, and magic comes back, very shadowrun like if that reference. A buddy of mine supply's all my reading material and he has talked about this book for year's, they just recently re-printed it.

Has nothing to do with the apocalypse or zombies, mind you, but it's probably the best American novel of the late 20th Century.
If you grew up in the '80s and liked World War Z, you might want to read World War C.

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.
