This book and The Fan Man are probably the best books ever written. (Maybe along with Dune, and Stranger in a Strange land).

Appropriate for a 12 year old boy?

Very appropriate.

Just bought this after reading NPR interview transcript with Max Brooks. Great price. "Nobody gets sucker punched like the United States of America." https://www.npr.org/transcripts/820601571

Yep, it's a great book. Some really interesting ideas here. I especially enjoyed the blue collar can-do chapter narrated by Alan Alda.

:

Has some profanity in it. Also, has a ton of adult themes, politics and such in it.
It's nothing like WWZ the movie. It's good, but if anything I'd wonder if it would bore a 12 year old.
Especially, if they think the movie has almost anything to do with this- because it doesn't. The movie is mostly rubbish (it's a B action movie, or a C horror film).

The book is less about zombies and more about personal relationships, society and government really.

For an adult, it's a should buy if you like sci-fi etc.

I have to say this is my favorite audiobook of all time. The production values are absolutely terrific, and all the narrators did a great job. This book is way different and way better than the crappy movie.

Also, has anyone else noticed some eerie parallels to the current coronavirus pandemic?

They spend quite a bit of time discussing a virus that originated in China and spreads to the rest of the world with disastrous consequences for the world. (COVID-19 virus also started on China and spread around the globe lightning fast.)

The U.S. is caught off guard and tries to stage a response in Yonkers, N.Y. but is completely overwhelmed. (Manhattan-based lawyer living New Rochelle, NY near Yonkers gets coronavirus and inadvertently spreads it everywhere, causing panic and anxiety through the region.)


Eventually everyone needs to re-think everything on how to combat the epidemic and in the end humanity turns the tide. (Hopefully this is what we will be doing in the coming months with the coronavirus.)
