Why it is your favorite book ?
It is my favorite book because I am a huge fan of the zombie film genre, and this books, despite not featuring zombies, is the progenitor of the zombie and worldwide epidemic genres. In fact, the first zombie film, “Night Of The Living Dead” was directly inspired by from this book. Beyond that, it is simply a clever book. I especially love how the title ties in to the twist at the end.
