Yeah, it's a full cast. Some audiobooks (not many) do that, but as it's written in interview format, it just works. It actually feels like a radio interview of people that were there.

Especially with Mark Hamill and Allan Alda.

World War Z: The Complete Edition (Movie Tie-in Edition): An Oral History of the Zombie War [Abridged] [Audible Audio Edition] is the horrible name for the longer edition. 12 hours of content. Don't be fooled by the name, it's got nothing to do with the movie. I'll generally listen to it every month or two. Well worth the money.

I thought they completed the entire thing with the complete edition that came out at the same time as the movie?

You know they fixed that when the movie came out.

I'm not sure if you can get the 'newest' version. But you can certainly get the 'unabridged' version. the newest version of the audiobook is not unabridged. Its 95% of the book.

There is a 100% unabridged version available in Australia - and not available in the USA. sells the unabridged version to aussies, but I'm not sure if anyone else does.

The unabridged version on amazon

World War Z by Max Brooks narrated by a lot of people.

I read the book a few years ago but heard great things about this audiobook so I wanted to check it out. Overall it was very good, it's definitely a book that benefits from audio format since it is set as an oral history. I listened to the whole book before reading who all the narrators were - I was surprised I had not recognized some of the more famous voices while I was listening (Simon Pegg, Martin Scorsese).

My question is - when a zombie catches a person, they start to eat them. But if they eat them entirely they won't regenerate into a walking zombie, and you wouldn't see the extreme rise of the zombie population. It seems like the only way to get such a large zombie population is if they just catch humans, take a bite and move on, but that seems unlikely.

There's a new version?!?

Holy crap there is

I can't believe no one has recommended World War Z yet. The book is written as transcripts of interviews used to provide an oral history of a fictional zombie war. The audiobook version is narrated by a full cast with actors like Mark Hamill, Alan Alda, Simon Pegg, Nathan Fillion, and more. Make sure to get the 'Complete Edition' and not the abridged one for the full effect.

Another really good audiobook is the one for Allison Hewitt is trapped. The book is written by a grad student surviving at the start of another zombie apocalypse. It's written as blog posts with comments at the bottom that are also narrated by a full cast.

For those wondering and have never read it

The Second Draft of J Michael Straczynski WWZ script

This was the second in I believe 5 subsequent rewrites. Some like it, some don't. Myself, I believe it captures a lot of what Max was trying to hit and the tone itself of a guy investigating and getting a lot of the zombie war in flashbacks. I really, REALLY wanted to see his versions of Yonkers and India as well as I think he nailed them perfectly. But it tends to bank into government cover up territory as well.

Also one good thing that came out of it was that Max and Random House decided to complete the EXCELLENT Audio Book of WWZ and filling in all the missing from the 'abridged' version with yet more STELLAR casting - like Simon Pegg, Nathan Fillion, Martin Scorsese (who is doing the what sounds like Steven Spielberg story from the book), Paul Sorvino, and Frank Darabont!

Even The Complete Edition skips chapters?

So, I've wanted to try getting into audiobooks. Haven't signed up for Audible because I didn't know if I'd get my money's worth out of a subscription service. Would I need to be a subscriber to listen to just one book to see how I like it (I ask because it may take me longer than the 30 day trial to get through it)? If not, I'd really like to give World War Z: The Complete Edition a listen.

The amazon listing doesn't have the audiobook for sale but claims it's "free with your audible trial" -- is it not there?
