Zone One by Colson Whitehead

The Zombie Apocalypse storyline seems to have a seemingly indestructible appeal; an observer of pop culture has to wonder if the durability of zombie entertainment is a sign that we may be growing used to reflecting our own culture; that we eerily shuffle through life much like our brain-dead zombie enemies. At least this point may be what Colson Whitehead tries to unearth in his subtle take on the genre. He’s more concerned with his character’s emotional lives, with how they cope in the hordes of modern life and modern apocalypse, than with offering cheap zombie-movie thrills we’ve all grown accustomed to. Highly recommended.
