Cmdr Shepard's favourite books on the Citadel

I was a much more avid reader in my youth... before the days of PCs and gaming consoles. Now I find myself working in a job filled with long, slow periods of extreme boredom (punctuated by brief spells of intense excitement) which gives me a lot of time to pick up my reading again.

The only thing that I curse is my near-eidetic memory when it comes to books that I have read which can ruin my future enjoyment and re-reading of many of my favourite books (I tend to skip the 'slow, boring bits'). As a result I find myself mentally forcing myself to read each page slowly and carefully whenever I re-read a book to prevent myself from jumping forward to the more exciting parts that I remember.

World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War - Max Brooks Max Brooks follows on from his previous 'zombie fiction' book The Zombie Survival Guide with a faux-historical analysis of 'World War Z', or the Zombie Apocalypse.

Written in an interview style, 'survivors' of WWZ tell their stories from the first hours of the apocalypse to VZ-Day and then rebuilding a world devestated by the undead.

If you're a fan of the zombie genre of horror movies/comics/etc, then you will enjoy this book.
