They must have taken out the oral history part, because that was the worst part of the book. I gave it up. Every character speaks the same way.
Yeah, I know – how could the written word have a voice? Every character they interview in the beginning was like some snotty jerk that I’d be happy to see eaten by a zombie. Answering questions with phrases like “What do YOU think?”
This may be the one instance where the movie is better than the book.
