I still read the Deathlands & Outlanders novels by James Axler (I started reading them in high school). I though WWZ was ok.. the road is on my list of books to read still.

I have to agree with I am Legend/Omega Man.

Never been a big zombie reading fan...always more of a "real" vampire read like "Necroscope" series...but may have to give some of these a try.

Loved this book.

I was one of the few adults in the theater that wasn't there with a kid...

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.

I have liked

"The Road" - that book is Amazing.
I liked The Road ok, but Cormac McCarthy's real masterpiece is All the Pretty Horses.
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.
