Alright this one I looked at as soon as I got it! Then my daughter looked at it, then the husband, my mom, lol even the two year old wanted a peek!  When I ordered this I didnt really take the time to see what it really was.  I thought it was just a normal companion book to the movie World War Z.  However, It isn't!  This is full of production shots, drawings, and the ENTIRE SCREENPLAY!! I think they should have stuck with the normal movie companion.  Not that this book isnt neat per say.  But, if you have seen the movie or even if you haven't.  I dont see why anyone would want to have a copy of the screenplay?!

Now saying that I did love some of the new information that was given in this book.  Again wishing it was a normal companion so I could have known more about the process of the Z's would have been amazing!  But anyway here are some wonderful tidbits from the book!

Pg. 142 "The longer the disease has been in the host the more emaciated the host becomes."- Andrew R. Jones, Animation Consultant

Now that was kind of neat!  A few pages back it shows how the Z's go from first being infected to a period of 6 months.  In that time frame the body begins to deteriorate and the skin sucks onto the bone.

Other areas of this book that I would have really loved to know more about are the following.

1. The Green Screen filming
2. The infection itself
3. The locations
4. Misshaps and Mistakes made
5. Any other cool info.

So with this all being said.  If you love having a copy of the screenplay laying around by all means go out and snag this one!  But, if screenplays just are not your thing? Then ya skip this one for something else!

I think the premise of the book/film is quite interesting. The book with its production shots and drawings would be fun to read.
