To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Had this cost any more than it did, it probably wouldn't have gotten five stars. However, it's relatively cheap and I do really, really love World War Z.
The book consists of four short stories. Both the first and last tale are classic World War Z fare; well-written and carefully thought-out. Neither would have seemed out of place in the original novel itself.
Unfortunately the middle two stories are a bit weaker and make up the bulk of the book. They ARE related to zombies, and they ARE set in the world of the novel. However, neither is in the usual 'narrated by interview' style, and the third story - the extinction parade - is just.....a bit weird.
I don't mean to sound vague, but i really don't want to spoil it for anyone. If you're a huge fan, as I am, it's all well worth a read and is an enjoyable but too-brief return to the world of World War Z. However, it serves as a series of fun 'what-if' tales rather than actually adding any flesh to the bones of the existing novel.
