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.

The Zombie Survival Guide - Max Brooks This tongue-firmly-in-cheek book provides some extremely well-thoughtout advice for how to survive should the dead ever start to rise.

Max Brooks explains everything you need-to-know; from the physiology of a zombie to combat techniques, weapon evaluations, zombie hunting techniques, even how structure a group and building your zombie-proof post-apocalyptic stronghold and living in a world where humans have all but perished to the zombie menace.

A must-have for zombie buffs, and for anyone who thinks that maybe... just maybe... the real truth about zombies is still out there.
