    Audie Award Winner, Multi-Voiced Performance, 2014

    World War Z: The Complete Edition (Movie Tie-in Edition): An Oral History of the Zombie War is a new version of Max Brooks' episodic zombie novel. The abridged versions of the original stories are now joined with new, unabridged recordings of the episodes that were not included in the original (abridged) version of the audiobook. These additional episodes feature a star-studded cast of narrators to coincide with the upcoming release of the film.

    New narrators include Academy Award-winning director Martin Scorsese, Spiderman star Alfred Molina, The Walking Dead creator Frank Darabont, rapper Common, Firefly star Nathan Fillion, Shaun of the Dead's Simon Pegg, and members of the casts of Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, Heroes and more! Max Brooks will be reprising his role as The Interviewer.

    The original abridged edition, released in 2006, won an Audie Award for Best Multi-Voiced Performance. Original cast members include Alan Alda, Mark Hamill, Carl & Rob Reiner, and John Turturro.

    In this new classic of apocalyptic fiction that feels all too real, the Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. The documentary-style oral history records the testimony of men, women, and sometimes children who came face-to-face with the living, or at least the undead, hell of that dreadful time.

    Featuring five more hours of previously unrecorded content, this full-cast recording is read by F. Murray Abraham, Alan Alda, René Auberjonois, Becky Ann Baker, Dennis Boutsikaris, Bruce Boxleitner, Max Brooks, Nicki Clyne, Common, Denise Crosby, Frank Darabont, Dean Edwards, Mark Hamill, Nathan Fillion, Maz Jobrani, Frank Kamai, Michelle Kholos, John McElroy, Ade M’Cormack, Alfred Molina, Parminder Nagra, Ajay Naidu, Masi Oka, Steve Park, Kal Penn, Simon Pegg, Jürgen Prochnow, Carl Reiner, Rob Reiner, Henry Rollins, Jeri Ryan, Jay O. Sanders, Martin Scorsese, Paul Sorvino, David Ogden Stiers, Brian Tee, John Turturro, Eamonn Walker, Ric Young, and Waleed Zuaiter.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "What happens after the end of the world as we know it? Humanity rebuilds, and Kirby Impoinvil (Max Brooks) is there to help survivors make sense of what happened the day the zombies came. Helping author Brooks is a host of family friends, including Alan Alda, Nathan Fillion, Paul Sorvino, Rob Reiner, Carl Reiner, Simon Pegg, John Turturro, and many others. This audio production was released to coincide with the movie of the same name. That it’s a real drama is not surprising given the stellar cast. They don't just read the book, they act it out. And don’t think this is a teen thriller. The zombies serve as a backdrop to the larger story of how humankind reacts to such an unexpected and catastrophic invasion and the inevitable conclusion that millions must be sacrificed to save the rest. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2014. Audies Finalist." (AudioFile magazine)

    Scary relevant nowadays

    Great cast and the story is as fun as it is scary relevant to today’s world situation. Fully recommendable.

    Astonishing story and performance

    What can I say... As a historian I would say that it is on of the most profound books about fictional zombie history.

    Not at all what I had expected.

    I expected one coherent story with a big cast, which is not what this is. (To be fair, I did not read the description because I do not want to be spoiled.) These are lots of small stories, each taking about 20 minutes or so to listen to. I really do not like that because you do not connect to any of the characters in any meaningful way and just when you are curious about how the story is going to end, it cuts to the next one. In my opinion, this is very unsatisfying. Some of the readers have strong accents which is not something I find very good because they are harder to understand when listening at higher speeds.

    In the end, I did not finish this book and would honestly not recommend it. I think it's pretty bad.

    Awesome story and amazing narration!!!

    I read the book a couple of years ago and still was hooked! The incredible narration made the whole thing even more immersive. I highly recommend it for all with a love for apocalyptic stories.

    Sometimes good, sometimes not so much

    some stories were fascinating and really exciting and I wanted to know every detail, but then there were some stories where i barely kept my attention.
    Very much USA loving which can be a bit annoying.
    3/5

    Mark Hamill! Voice acting raises the bar!

    Amazing work from the voice cast. Absolutely blown away. Mark Hamill's parts are incredible! I look forward to more of his performances.

    Good book, bad voice acting

    The voice acting is cringey as hell, which I didn't expect considering the cast. I would refund if I could.

    Written to be an audiobook!

    The ideal audiobook as the short, independent stories are told by different actors with suitable accents. Really enjoyed listening to them and following the development of the war.

    A fresh perspective

    This is a great fictional report of the semi-realistic situation after a war with a global zombie outbreak. This covers many questions: from how the outbreak started, to how defense failed, even to the economical and social situation post and during the war.
    The narrator does a great job conveying the significance of each interview.
    Highly recommended.
