Personally, the best fiction book i can think of is Max Brook's "World War Z".

It is a book that takes place during a zombie apocalypse, but really the zombies are the least of what this book deals with. They are the mcguffin which sets up a catalyst for world-wide change, and that is really what this book is about.

Different cultures, different politics, different economies and how people in each of these groups respond to a world-changing catastrophic event.

It's only like 300 pages long, and i honestly recommend this book to everyone.

Currently for sale at amazon for $9.71. It's a steal.

You know, what the hell, we don't need to nominate any other books at this point. A zombie book always trumps anything else.

I'm in. All you hoity-toity literature people need to get on board with this one too. It's summer. It's time to read a fun book.

Good.

I'm glad you guys are going to read it. Then i will have somebody to feel sad with when Brad Pitt's movie of the same name comes out.

I read the synopsis, compare it to the book... and it makes me weepy.
