I finished reading World War Z on Wednesday by Max Brooks and I have to say that it was incredibly thought provoking and the best example of world building I have come across in a long time!
There were things in this novel that I would never ever have dreamed of thinking as possibilities in a zombie infested world that I found very clever. You understand that zombies are considered undead or dead people reanimated but do you really understand what that would really mean if it were real?
Think about it, what could the dead do that we could not if they happened to have become ravenously hungry reanimated autopilot predators?
Terrifying things actually!
They could survive climates and places that we as living breathing human beings would struggle with!
The story is absolutely amazing and without giving you too many spoilers I can’t really say much more than this… if you want a horror in a dystopian world and you want to be taught near perfect world building and keeping things real, then this is a must read, whether you like zombies or not!
This is how world building is done folks!
