World War Z: An Excellent Start but Just a Decent Finish

I read Max Brooks’ World War Z and while I thought the book’s ideas and concept was fabulous and well-organized, I found the writing to be one-toned. He was chronicling events from all over the world in different time frames of the zombie apocalypse and while his literary tool was that of the interview — all his interviewees sounded like the same person. He didn’t have Barbara Kingsolver’s knack for changing tone and voice inflection in her writing that made each chapter of Poisonwood Bible such an absorbing read. Regardless, World War Z was a good read and I’m glad to have read it.

So it was so shocking for me to discover that they were going to do an adaptation of the book for a film. The moment, though, I heard it was Brad Pitt and Marc Foster at the helm, I sat back and eagerly awaited for it in the cinema.

My review for the film can be found in Juice.ph right here: World War Z: Excellent Start but a Decent Finish.
