In this international science fiction adventure by Jake Blake, a massive solar flare and coronal mass ejection have erupted from the surface of the sun and are headed directly for the earth. In a few short hours, seven billion people will be forced to adapt to a world without electricity and modern technology. Meet this rich cast of characters, including a New York hedge fund manager and his supermodel wife, a sailboat captain, a teen Internet sensation, a soldier far from home and three astronauts on board the International Space Station as they cope with one crisis after another and brace for the greatest and worst electromagnetic storm in more than 150 years. Follow their adventures as they navigate large cities like New York and London, travel around the world in sailing yachts and space stations, witness daring bank robberies and stock market crashes, a solar powered plant meltdown in China, ominous auroras in Mecca, isolation in Afghanistan and Mumbai, and enjoy the comforts of small town summer life in Toledo, Washington.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “Prepare to be entranced by this addictively readable oral history of the great war between humans and zombies.”—Entertainment Weekly
 
We survived the zombie apocalypse, but how many of us are still haunted by that terrible time? We have (temporarily?) defeated the living dead, but at what cost? Told in the haunting and riveting voices of the men and women who witnessed the horror firsthand, World War Z is the only record of the apocalyptic years.
 
The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched first-hand experiences of the survivors, traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of thirty million souls to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet. He recorded 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. World War Z is the result. Never before have we had access to a document that so powerfully conveys the depth of fear and horror, and also the ineradicable spirit of resistance, that gripped human society through the plague years.

THE INSPIRATION FOR THE MAJOR MOTION PICTURE

“Will spook you for real.”—The New York Times Book Review
 
“Possesses more creativity and zip than entire crates of other new fiction titles. Think Mad Max meets The Hot Zone. . . . It’s Apocalypse Now, pandemic-style. Creepy but fascinating.”—USA Today
 
“Will grab you as tightly as a dead man’s fist. A.”—Entertainment Weekly, EW Pick 
 
“Probably the most topical and literate scare since Orson Welles’s War of the Worlds radio broadcast . . . This is action-packed social-political satire with a global view.”—Dallas Morning News
