Books about zombies have always held a certain charm for people who love horror. Zombies are fictional characters?dead people that come to life due to some misdoing by a bad person, like someone activating a device that wakes the dead, or someone unleashing a virus that attacks all living and dead humans, slowly turning them into zombies. The outcome is usually the same. These monsters take over the planet, nobody is able to stop them, they multiply fast, they love to kill, they are surprisingly smart for being undead, and then there is always some lone, brooding hero who sets out to destroy them and save what is left of humanity. There is invariably a small group of survivors who brave these crazed, killing, and frankly scary beings to escape to a safer place. It is always surprising how, if these zombies are so intelligent and strong enough to destroy all of humanity and track down these survivors to their hiding place as well, they can never survive against them. There are deaths, love, loss, pain, romance, the emotional angle goes on and on, making the reader feel bad about a character dying due to ‘an attack by the zombies, driving them to commit suicide by mind control’! Yes, the concept does seem very outworldly and sometimes a little silly. But then there are books like ‘Cell’, ‘The Walking Dead’, or ‘World War Z’, which were written so brilliantly that they almost make the whole deal seem real. These great books have also been turned into movies or TV series, which mostly cater to young adults/teenagers. The following is a list of the best zombie books ever written.
