What to Read While Waiting for Season 3 of "The Walking Dead" (Plus, Bonus Interview with Colson Whitehead)


I've only seen a few episodes of "The Walking Dead" (I have a weekend marathon viewing planned for the near future). But I have friends who swear by the show, who aren't quite sure what to do now that the second season has ended. You could say they're in shambles. A few of them have asked me what to read while they wait for Season 3. So here's a list of some good zombie books that I'm aware of, as well as a conversation I had with Colson Whitehead a few months back when his zombie novel Zone One was coming out. I noticed that he cites The Walking Dead graphic novels as one of his influences. If it's also one of yours, you may like a book or two on this list.

Feel free to make your own suggestions in the comments section here or on Facebook.


  • World War Z by Max Brooks

  • If you haven't read this one, you should. It's one of the books that started off the whole zombie craze in which we find ourselves. Oh, and it's going to be a movie starring Brad Pitt. This is first-rate, unputdownable reading.
