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.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith
That's right... Abraham Lincoln. Vampire hunter. By the author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. The obvious pick by this author would have been P & P & Z, but I already made an obvious pick with World War Z. This book is also being made into a movie.
