The Unshelved Book Club presents "WORLD WAR Z, An Oral History of the Zombie Wars" by Max Brooks
[[Dewey is backed against the wall by zombie versions of Colleen and baby, Ned, Grandma, Mel, Merv, Buddy and Tamara]] / Dewey: When the dead rose to attack the living, it sounded like a fairy tale. Disbelief played a part in what happened next, but so did politics, profit, and ignorance. High tech weapons were useless against an enemy who only fell when their brains were destroyed, and who added to their numbers with every battle. These are the stories of those who did what was needed to survive and overcome the greatest horror imaginable.
Zombie Colleen: Brains! / Zombie Baby: Brains! / Zombie Ned: Brains! / Zombie Buddy: Brains! / Zombie Tamara: Cauliflower! / Dewey: Cauliflower? / Zombie Tamara: Zombies can be vegans too!
