Book Beginnings: World War Z
The narrator turns out to be a survivor who travels around the world interviewing other survivors. Each chapter is two or three pages so this is fun and easy to read, although just like with a potato chip, I could not stop with one chapter as I wanted to hear about more of the survivors and their stories. "World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War" is written by Max Brooks.
This Book Beginnings runs on Fridays and I am linking to Rose City Reader
Also I am linking to Freda's Voice where you can join in and share a sentence from a book you are reading from page 56. This is also from "World War Z."
"We knew it would work against rabies, and that's what they said it was, right, just some weird strain of jungle rabies."
The above sentence is what a scientist said when he was interviewed after the war, about when they developed a vaccine against the Z Plague, and it turned out that the vaccine had no effect whatsoever and was worthless and dangerous since people thought it would work.
